Sad isn't it? Al Gore won the most votes in 2000. Think of how much better off this country would be if real democracy ruled here instead of the sham we have. In 2004, a lying scumbag bullshitted enough frightened people to scam his way back in. Where was the vaunted press? Where have all the decent men gone? I cannot believe that this nation got saddled with 8 years of rank incompetance. There is something truly, truly wrong with this country.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
