John Kerry has conceded to George W. Bush. It is fairly clear that Bush won the popular vote. In addition to Bush being reinstated to the White House, the Senate and House of Representatives now are controlled by a single party majority. That party just happens to be the same party that Bush is a member of — the Republican party. This means that the balance between the executive and legislative branches of the government are now skewed (screwed). This is a bad thing. The only thing that could make it worse is if a few highly conservative judges are appointed to the Supreme Court this term.

I hope all of you that voted for Bush like what you get out of this. I have a feeling it is not going to be very good. There should be someone in the executive seat to counter the legislative branch.

The Bahamas are looking ever more appealing.


I'm sure I'll like it much more than if Kerry had won.

The Bahamas welcome you. Go. Making off hand comments about moving out of this country if one political leader or the other wins is absurd. While I will agree with you that any one party having complete control of 2/3 branches of government is a little disconcerting, this is by no means grounds to pack up and leave.

That line is basically an inside joke between me and a close friend. But, it is also half serious. If I had the money to do so I would strongly consider moving there (after some research). I have more reasons than this for wanting to move there. The biggest one being the climate.
