So today is the day of truth.
Today the whole world will know who they’ll be hating for the next 4 years 😛
Just kidding, although it does turn out that way most of the times.
The person who wins the US election today gets to lead the world’s only super power for the next 4 years, and the rest of the world comes as an accessory of course.
We have really come to a stage where the US elections matter more to people than their own elections in their own countries, simply because the US elections affect them and their lives more.
The president of the USA is basically the president of the world as we know it today, even though most of the world don’t get anything to say about who they would like to see heading the world.
From where I stand, there is no difference between Bush and Kerry when it comes to the issues I care about most, those being the issues of peace in the middle east and this whole anti-Islamic movement.
So, the way I see it, the next 4 years will be more of the same stuff again and again, if not even worse.
I’m not being pessimistic, I’m just being realistic. I’ve watched what the 2 candidates have to say for a long time and there’s nothing I see that makes either one better than the other or that makes the vision of the world in the 4 coming years more optimistic.
Unlike in 2000 when I really thought Al Gore would have been a better president for the US and a better leader for the world.
Anyway, I’m generally more inclined towards the Democrats than the Republicans, so maybe if Kerry wins, the people around him will be better than the people around Bush.
Can’t wait to see who actually wins this time around.
I’m expecting Bush to win a second term, but well let’s just wait and see…
