  • Mood:
Looks like four more years in which we get to see just how dark this night can really get. We can probably expect full-scale world war to break out, with conscription (in the US and Australia; as soon as the US brings in the draft, Australia will follow suit) and the use of BushCo's nifty new mini-nukes, not to mention spiralling debt, authoritarianism and a brain drain as many members of the creative class move to London, Berlin or New Zealand. Or just north of the border.

Meanwhile, one of the rumours on MetaFilter was that the electronic voting machines used in key states, which left no audit trails, gave Bush 5% more votes than the exit polls. Mind you, that's just a rumour; other reports are saying that many voters went with Bush because, while he may have screwed the economy and Iraq, Kerry would legalise gay marriage, which was far worse.

Momus (who's well worth reading) has an argument in favour of leaving America.

Poll #377821 One for the Americans here

Assuming that Bush has won, what will you do?

Move to Canada/Europe/wherever
Stay and fight
Stay and give up
Talk loudly about moving to Canada but probably stay
I supported Bush, you goddamn gay-loving liberal commie!
