USA Election post

Alright, I’ve noticed that search engines are really good to me. There are various search phrases which trigger thousands of results, and often I’m between search result 1-20. So let’s try an experiment. I’m going to write something about a topic which at the moment probably is the most important for a lot of people: No, not how the 20 imbeciles from ‘Verschollen’ will manage to get off the island, but the Presidential Election. To make it easier for the search engines, that election is going to take place in the United States of America, short USA, on the 2nd of November. Alright, here’s my 2 cents.

Now, I am not a citizen of the USA, and I don’t have to live there, but if I did, I would probably not vote for a man who is obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Would I want a president who can at least pretend to know what he is talking about? Hell yes. Would I want a president who is not tied to the war-industry and doesn’t have the interest of big-business as a priority in mind? Again, yes. Now, knowing that there’s a huge fan base for W. within the blogosphere, I also have to ask myself what exactly those people are thinking. The Bush-administration has done so many things wrong, but still there’s that large, loyal group which just doesn’t care. I mean, these people obviously know what the phrase ‘rational thought’ is about, but they still regard each and every democrat as a sandal-wearing hippie. What exactly is that? I don’t get it.

But it’s not a phenomenon only found in the USA. Here in Austria, the conservative-right-wing administration has been one complete and utter failure. After messing up the coalition, everyone thought that early elections would bring change. Of course they didn’t. Conservative People’s Party even moved up from third strongest party to strongest party, taking with them about two third’s of once right-wing voters. What the hell?

Right, so I don’t understand it, and that quite probably makes me perfect prey for self-styled experts from all over the world, who are going to bash my virtual head in. If they find my site, that is.
