I know the world consensus is usually that Americans are a bunch of backward idiots. My greatest fear right now is that we're about to prove you right.

Our presidential election is on Tuesday and Republicans in several states are doing everything they possibly can to make sure the lying psychopath Romney wins. Lying, cheating, rigging voting machines (did you know it's apparently legal for a candidate's son to own the machines people are voting with in America?), you name it.

I don't want to live in a country where this kind of thing can happen so easily. I don't want to live in a country the rest of the world looks down on again. I hate being sneered at when I travel to Europe. I will do everything I can to make sure Obama wins and I hope the UN has Ohio and Florida under close watch on Tuesday because the leaders in those states are doing everything short of ripping up ballots filled out by Democrats (though they are threatening to do that too now). I don't think the world can survive the damage caused by a Romney presidency (day 1: war with Iran).

To my American friends: VOTE! Grab as many of those "unlikely voters" as you can and drag them to the polls! We cannot afford to let apathy decide this election like it did two years ago!

To my Canadian friends: brace yourselves for a potential surge of illegal immigrants/refugees.

To the rest of my international friends: please pray for us.

"In Internet posts, alleged #Oslo shooter advocates creating "a cultural Euro-version of a Tea Party movement." -- David Corn

The European version of the American gun-toting, astroturfing whackadoodle party killed nearly a hundred members of the Labor Party (left wing) in Norway. Is it any wonder I'm scared to live among people who think like this? People who think Michele Bachmann is their messiah, come to save them from all the Jew-loving, Commie-Socialist Homos? (Seriously, I still hear people around here complaining about "all them niggers". I'm not sure when we became North Mississippi).

The scariest part is not really that there are people like this in America. I've come to accept that America is full of degenerates who would rather bomb a women's health clinic than accept that sometimes abortions are necessary to save a woman's life. But when Europe starts producing nutballs like this, I start really worrying.

Thanks a lot, Republicans. Now can you stop acting like big antisocial babies?

The right wing extremists who call themselves Republicans have officially threatened to take my job away. I got a layoff notice in the mail.

I can now consider myself unemployed starting next month unless our governor caves to their shitty demands to fuck up health insurance, destroy worker's unions, cut funding for education/schools (like that hasn't been done enough already), cut funding to an organization that provides health services to poor women (and some men) and deny rights to homosexual couples.

And the news is reporting that they are patting themselves on the back over the thousands of these layoff notices that have gone out across the state. Fuckers.

The worst part is that we can't vote these assholes out of office until the end of 2012 and there's a disturbingly large percentage of the American population who actually WANTS these people in office!

Okay, so that's not entirely true. I just hate the bigotted assholes who think they can do whatever they want with the country and take it all the way back to the 18th century. We're somewhat protected here in Minnesota, but for how long? Unions are under attack (and workers rights are actually being taken away with GLEE), the middle class is being destroyed and Republican extremists are busily making sure that every woman is prevented from having an abortion even if the pregnancy endangers her life (and they will redefine rape in the process just to add insult to injury).
The Middle East is taking steps toward Democracy and we are moving in EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION and the idiots on Fox News are encouraging this! They have totally poisoned people into thinking that Democracy is a BAD thing that leads to Commie Socialist Nazi-ism (yeah, you try to figure THAT one out).

If this keeps up, I may have to move to Canada after all. Does anybody know how I could go about doing that?
