WARNING: the YouTube video behind this link contains words you probably do not want your children repeating until they're old enough to vote.

A friendly little bit of song and dance about patriotic statements involving yellow ribbons.

Lifted from the anti-bush LJ community.

Well, sad to say, the solution is to vote. Every time.

Which doesn't help between elections, but at least the mid-terms are coming up and maybe something can be done about the House and the Senate.

As for Shrub and his henchmen, at least those of you in the US have one consolation: He's out of there after this term, and can't come back.

Gods I wish that we had that consolation here in Aus. Ever since thatslimylittlemotherfucker our Beloved Prime Minister came to power I've been disgusted with the system and the majority of the electorate.

It's swinging into ultra-dictator mode right under our noses. (I know that's a bit of an overreaction, but it could go that way!)

And it *is* going that way here. Hell, last poll I saw on LittleJohnny said that something like 75% of the electorate believes he's lied to the people repeatedly, but most of them also said it wouldn't change their vote.

heheee.. Shrub.

I do vote, every time. It seems to have so little impact. And it's not just the Bush administration - the US has been building imperialistic tendancies since the Eisenhower administration. We've always had a policy of "the rules apply to everyone but us" - Bush is just making the most use of that. I'd go into politics myself if I thought I could have any impact.. but as I've said before: "One drop may raise the ocean, but it does nothing against a raging forest fire."

Sadly true.

I've voted against the current party in power ever chance I've had since I was old enough to vote, and yet we've still endured 10 years of these bastards.*

One of my gaming buddies is a US citizen, and is often ranting about how Shrub should gets his support 'cause he's doing the right thing, and how voting should be voluntary, etc, etc, so if nothing else, your votes are neutralising one fool.

And sometimes, that's the best you can hope for, sad to say.

And of course, if you don't add that tiny drop, then those fools win automatically.

(*) Due, in no small part, I will admit, to the so-called Opposition party being so pitiful they don't even rate a sad joke.
