They're not sorry -- but they will be!
There's a web site for proud Bush voters called WE'RE NOT SORRY, and they solicit feedback both GOOD and BAD. The feedback I just sent would definitely fall into their BAD category:

Those who voted for Bush might not be sorry now, but they will be in the long run.

They will be sorry when their children are stuck with the massive debt this administration has compiled.

They will be sorry when they are stripped of the Social Security benefits they've been paying into their entire working lives -- funds which have been redistributed to the rich in the form of tax cuts.

They will be sorry when our massive budget and trade deficits cause an economic collapse when foreign banks decide to invest their cash elsewhere.

They will be sorry when their jobs are outsourced and they have to compete with cheap immigrant labor for what's left.

They will be sorry when they join the 45 million uninsured Americans and they are faced with the choice of paying for medical care or for food and shelter.

They will be sorry when their lives are cut short by the increased toxins in our air and water courtesy of the Bush administration's gutting of the Environmental Protection Agency.

They will be sorry when gas prices skyrocket and no attempt has been made to improve fuel mileage or to develop renewable energy technologies.

They will be sorry when the Cheney strategy of burning our own resources as fast as possible leaves us at the Mercy of foreign oil cartels.

They will be sorry when their own husband/brother/son is killed in some godforsaken Middle Eastern country.

They will be sorry when perpetual war and perpetual terrorism makes it unsafe for Americans abroad and erodes our Constitutional liberties at home.

AND THEY WILL BE VERY SORRY when they realize the president who supposedly represents their values is little more than a front man for the wealthy and powerful who only seek to increase their wealth and power at the expense of everyone else.

GEORGE W. BUSH HAS BETRAYED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE who put their trust and faith in him after the national tragedy of 9/11. He and the neoconservatives in his administration exploited your anger, grief, fear, patriotism, and religious faith in order to invade an oil-rich country that had nothing to do with 9/11, was not allied with the al Qaeda terrorists, possessed no weapons of mass destruction, and had neither the capability nor the intent to attack the United States.

We are spending a billion dollars a week in Iraq, over 1100 of our troops have paid with their lives, and the entire operation is recruiting more terrorists than it kills. If you think all this blood and treasure is being spent to bring freedom and democracy to the Iraqi people (whom we have killed by the tens of thousands) or that it will somehow make us safer, then you have swallowed hook, line, and sinker the lies and propaganda that continues to be fed to you through a sophisticated marketing campaign directed by the White House and financed by the corporations that are profiting from this war.

WAKE UP AND STOP BEING PLAYED FOR CHUMPS BY THAT SMIRKING SON OF A BUSH!!!

1. It's a minor point...
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 05:31 PM by kiki
...but if I were you I'd try and refrain from referring to Middle Eastern countries as "godforsaken".

I know it's a nice dramatic word and that people use it without really thinking about what it means... but I think these guys might take it the wrong way...

4. Nicely done
I want all of those folks who are of military age to enlist immediately. Otherwise, my coworker's kid may get drafted, and her family doesn't deserve that.

6. How did you send feedback?
I want to send one that says,

"I sincerely hope that when I return here, all you of military age will have enlisted to serve in Iraq."
