While really thinking about the last 4 years, I realized that Bush’s administration really hasn’t affected me. None of my relatives lost their jobs. None of my family died in the military.
I wanted to (and probably still will) vote Kerry because I felt bad that 1000 US soldiers won’t be coming home. That thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians lost their lives. That millions of Americans lost their jobs.
But…a weight has been lifted! None of that affects me! And 4 more years of Bush probably won’t affect me personally either! I’ve simply been too compassionate for the common man. But I don’t have to be anymore. I’m just going to worry about myself and my loved ones from now on.
So go ahead. Vote for Bush, America. Lose your jobs and let your children get sent to Iraq, because I’m done giving a shit about any of you. Your problems aren’t my problems. This must be what it feels like to be a Republican, and it feels damn good.
