A picture, or painting in this case, speaks volumes. After 8 years of mis-leadership, countless scandals, extreme partisanship, reckless spending, and vulgar abuse of power America is going to be graced with Hope.
When I look at the utter mess this country is in, I realize just how insanely self-serving and utterly disgusting Republicans, in particular the ones in charge, can be. But it's not soley Bush & ilk's fault America is in this state, I lay most of the blame at the feet of the fools - there I said it - who re-elected the Bush Administration for a second term. The ones with the real power in this country, the American voters, were the ones who ultimately gave this clusterfuck of power hungry assholes another term, and they gave it to them on a silver platter along with a blank check. All I can say to those who cast a vote for W in 2004 is that you brought the hard times on yourself. And for the rest of us, well, we just have to deal with the fallout from your mistake.
So is there Hope for the future of this country? It sure seems that way. Hope that the troops in Iraq will finally be coming back home where they belong. Hope that the poor and the middle class in this country will be offered decent health care, education, and equal rights. Hope that eventually this country will once again prosper and gain back the respect lost as a result of the greedy, arrogant Bush Administration. It feels good to be optimistic about the future of this country. More importantly it feels good just knowing that in 3 days, 1 hour, and 55 minutes (but who's counting?) that Hope will be official.
