Yes, unfortunately it's come down to this again.

I don't think people in this country realize the peril we're in. Now, 1
year, 2 years, 4 years, 10 years down the road I may be proven wrong, but
I see America in decline, politically, economically, and perhaps even
militarily. The problem is the blindness with which people are taking
their steps. It seems everyone is so busy focusing on the here and now,
worshipping golden calfs, falling under the spell of false prophets, and
worst of all, forgetting (or not even knowing) the lessons of the past.
So where are we at? We've got half the nation throwing their support
behind Georgius Caeser, the other half saying "anyone but Bush so Kerry
will do" and the OTHER half going asking "what the fuck!?"

The writing is on the wall, and it's so plain to see that you either can't
read or you're being willfully ignorant. By all means, vote for Bush if
you think that's the right choice, but God help you, him, and everyone
else. The way I see it, the alternative to voting for him is to just give
up altogether, i.e. emmigrate. There are plenty of nice places in the
world. I've been to them. I'm just not sure if they'll be far enough
away to avoid the toxicity that is America.

I've never seen a people so polarized. And I've never seen half of them
be so completely blind/stupid/whatever pejorative explains them.
