After 9/11, it is the saddest day I¡¯ve experienced. The cycle of emotion whirl wind was very similar. It started with disbelief, denial, anger, sadness, and cynicism. It seemed to me that 51% of the American voters might as well be coming from Mars.
I don¡¯t understand how people could vote for an administration after the past four years of devastation. Didn¡¯t people see that they were the ones to be exploited, and they had the most to lose from the very administration that they were electing? How could people be so blind? Just because of religious fever? If so, how is it different from suicide bombers following the order of bin Ladin? Why is one form of fundamentalism better than the other?

Time to study Nietzsche, maybe?
