oh, how i hope kerry wins. bush people are stupid. an example:
where i live, in the newspaper, there is a weekly publication called x-pressions (or something like that) which focuses on kids' opinions on stuff. lately, the main topic has been politics. a few weeks ago, one of my good friends, who hates bush almost as much as i do, contributed to the column. she said absolutely nothing which, by normal people standards, could be considered controversial. she did not mention which candidate she supports, only that she looks more at the issues (such as abortion) rather than the actual party that the candidate belongs to (although she does consider herself a democrat, she keeps an open mind). today, almost a month later, as we're walking to my car after school, she pulls out an envelope that she received in her last hour class. in it, there was a page-long letter from "an anonymous christian voter" saying how she commended the fact that megan (my friend) had voiced her opinion, and how politics are important. however, this was just in the first paragraph. the letter goes on to say that bush is the correct choice for president, and this lady periodically quoted from the bible (i'm not very religous, but she even put in those number thingies that i guess identify where in the bible the remarks can be found). i swear, she had at least five biblical references. probably more. she said also that "a lot of people say that bush cheated his way into office, but that is not so. he was put there by god, and he is god's president". blah blah blah. i just thought that was the most ridiculous thing ever. these people are crazy. no offense to any of you who are religious, i believe everyone is entitled to have their own beliefs, but i think that this is pushing it a little. i was torn between anger, pity, and just plain out piss-your-pants laughter.
