Everyone is talking about unity now that the election is over; saying how we need to heal the divisions caused by the vitriolic campaign. That’s crap.
First, the schism wasn’t created by the campaign. It was created by Bush’s statements and actions over the last 3 years. There’s no reason to believe he’ll be more of a uniter now that he’s got his “mandate”.
Second, personally there is nothing Bush could do to earn my trust and respect at this point. I respect that he holds the office of President. I will follow and support my country. But I refuse to unite with Bush or his kind. I do not welcome the vision of America they hold. I will continue to fight to preserve and build my vision of America – the land of the free.
