In response to the recent election...|
-Bush won, according to the media. This is a projected win. Until all votes are counted, the election is just a prediction.
-There have been numerous reports of voting fraud, meaning that votes were miscounted or not counted at all (I could list websites for proof, if anybody is interested).
-Kerry stepped down (I prefer the term stepping down, which infers that you can step back up) yet his speech was not law-binding. If Kerry finds out he does, indeed, win the election, he can still accept the presidency.
-Many liberals are thinking about a civil war, similar to that of the 1800's. This is because of the aforementioned voting fraud.
-Many liberals are also thinking of seceding from the Union, and legally, they can, if they can put into place a leader.
What are your personal views on these thoughts? Do you think that people are over-reacting? Or do you think that these revolutionary thoughts are typical after a big upset for the liberals?
Although I beleive that there is some over-reacting on the part of the liberals, I do think that a Civil battle of some sort is inevitable. There are already revolutionaries who are trying to gain momentum and strike at the perfect time. I beleive that if the votes are counted, safely and un-biasly, then maybe the ideas will die out. I think, what needs to be proven, is who won - fair and square. Voting fraud aside, I beleive all the votes should be counted and Kerry should have the ability to step up as president if the votes do prove that he did, indeed, win the election.
If the votes are not taken into careful consideration, I beleive a civil battle of some sort in inevitable, as I said before. So many people are angered over this, and, although I wish not to see a presidential assasination while I am alive, I have heard rumors via internet (and those usually are not reliable) that people are planning on going to the inauguration of Bush and kill him. I do not beleive this will succeed, but if it does, then a new Civil War is only minutes away. I do NOT wish for the man to die, but I wish for him to have a fair and square election held. Just because he can, does not mean he should.
I am very interested in what the conservatives in the group have to say about this. Do you beleive there is anything horrible in the future? Or do you beleive that this is all talk, no action?
This can be held as a debate or a discussion of your views -- it is up to you.
