17 Razones para no cortarse las venas... por Michael Moore

1. It is against the law for George W. Bush to run for president again.

2. Bush's victory was the NARROWEST win for a sitting president since
Woodrow Wilson in 1916.

3. The only age group in which the majority voted for Kerry was young
adults (Kerry: 54%, Bush: 44%), proving once again that your parents
are always wrong and you should never listen to them.

4. In spite of Bush's win, the majority of Americans still think the
country is headed in the wrong direction (56%), think the war wasn't
worth fighting (51%), and don't approve of the job George W. Bush is
doing (52%). (Note to foreigners: Don't try to figure this one out.
It's an American thing, like Pop Tarts.)

5. The Republicans will not have a filibuster-proof 60-seat majority
in the Senate. If the Democrats do their job, Bush won't be able to
pack the Supreme Court with right-wing ideologues. Did I say "if the
Democrats do their job?" Um, maybe better to scratch this one.

6. Michigan voted for Kerry! So did the entire Northeast, the
birthplace of our democracy. So did 6 of the 8 Great Lakes States. And
the whole West Coast! Plus Hawaii. Ok, that's a start. We've got most
of the fresh water, all of Broadway, and Mt. St. Helens. We can
dehydrate them or bury them in lava. And no more show tunes!

7. Once again we are reminded that the buckeye is a nut, and not just
any old nut -- a poisonous nut. A great nation was felled by a
poisonous nut. May Ohio State pay dearly this Saturday when it faces

8. 88% of Bush's support came from white voters. In 50 years, America
will no longer have a white majority. Hey, 50 years isn't such a long
time! If you're ten years old and reading this, your golden years will
be truly golden and you will be well cared for in your old age.

9. Gays, thanks to the ballot measures passed on Tuesday, cannot get
married in 11 new states. Thank God. Just think of all those wedding
gifts we won't have to buy now.

10. Five more African Americans were elected as members of Congress,
including the return of Cynthia McKinney of Georgia. It's always good
to have more blacks in there fighting for us and doing the job our
candidates can't.

11. The CEO of Coors was defeated for Senate in Colorado. Drink up!

12. Admit it: We like the Bush twins and we don't want them to go away.

13. At the state legislative level, Democrats picked up a net of at
least 3 chambers in Tuesday's elections. Of the 98 partisan-controlled
state legislative chambers (house/assembly and senate), Democrats went
into the 2004 elections in control of 44 chambers, Republicans
controlled 53 chambers, and 1 chamber was tied. After Tuesday,
Democrats now control 47 chambers, Republicans control 49 chambers, 1
chamber is tied and 1 chamber (Montana House) is still undecided.

14. Bush is now a lame duck president. He will have no greater moment
than the one he's having this week. It's all downhill for him from
here on out -- and, more significantly, he's just not going to want to
do all the hard work that will be expected of him. It'll be like
everyone's last month in 12th grade -- you've already made it, so it's
party time! Perhaps he'll treat the next four years like a permanent
Friday, spending even more time at the ranch or in Kennebunkport. And
why shouldn't he? He's already proved his point, avenged his father
and kicked our ass.

15. Should Bush decide to show up to work and take this country down a
very dark road, it is also just as likely that either of the following
two scenarios will happen: a) Now that he doesn't ever need to pander
to the Christian conservatives again to get elected, someone may
whisper in his ear that he should spend these last four years building
"a legacy" so that history will render a kinder verdict on him and
thus he will not push for too aggressive a right-wing agenda; or b) He
will become so cocky and arrogant -- and thus, reckless -- that he
will commit a blunder of such major proportions that even his own
party will have to remove him from office.

16. There are nearly 300 million Americans -- 200 million of them of
voting age. We only lost by three and a half million! That's not a
landslide -- it means we're almost there. Imagine losing by 20
million. If you had 58 yards to go before you reached the goal line
and then you barreled down 55 of those yards, would you stop on the
three yard line, pick up the ball and go home crying -- especially
when you get to start the next down on the three yard line? Of course
not! Buck up! Have hope! More sports analogies are coming!!!

17. Finally and most importantly, over 55 million Americans voted for
the candidate dubbed "The #1 Liberal in the Senate." That's more than
the total number of voters who voted for either Reagan, Bush I,
Clinton or Gore. Again, more people voted for Kerry than Reagan. If
the media are looking for a trend it should be this -- that so many
Americans were, for the first time since Kennedy, willing to vote for
an out-and-out liberal. The country has always been filled with
evangelicals -- that is not news. What IS news is that so many people
have shifted toward a Massachusetts liberal. In fact, that's BIG news.
Which means, don't expect the mainstream media, the ones who brought
you the Iraq War, to ever report the real truth about November 2,
2004. In fact, it's better that they don't. We'll need the element of
surprise in 2008.

    Quien no se consuela es porque no quiere... La razón 18 de Michael Moore es que puede seguir metiéndose conel gobierno en nuevos documentales... y nuestra razón 18 es que podemos seguir diciendo que los estadounidenses son unos paletos.

    Aun creo que lo mejor de todo es que siempre se puede tener la mejor democracia que el dinero pueda comprar, directa o indirectamente.

    Yo es que soy de los que se quieren consolar, porque la verdad es que nunca pense que me pudiera afectar lo de estados unidos.

    Respecto a lo de la mejor democracia que el dinero puede comprar, el problema es quién tiene ese dinero y quién tiene el suficiente poder para configurar la democracia, y entonces viene el mismo problema de siempre: ¿para qué voy a cambiar yo un sistema incorrecto si esas incorrecciones me favorecen y mucho?

  4. Blogger wakalani  llegó el 10 noviembre, 2004 13:00 y dijo:    

    Muy cierto. Pero y los que no tienen el dinero para comprar la mejor de las democracias, ¿qué hacemos? ¿nos lamemos las heridas? ¿nos consolamos con 3, 8, 17, 70 razones? ¿qué hacemos?

    Pues hombre, un idealista te diría que todos podemos cambiar el mundo, que cualquier pequeña acción personal ayudará a un mundo mejor, más perfecto e igualitario.
    Yo, personalmente creo que lo que mueve este planeta es el poderoso caballero. Con él puedes hacer lo que quieras, incluso ser su presidente aunque seas un inculto y un inútil. Sin él puedes ser la mejor persona, con los mejores ideales y mas capacitada para arreglarlo todo, que no vas a ninguna parte
    Los que tienen quieren seguir teniendo, y para eso nada mejor que que las cosas sigan tal y como estan

    Protesto en nombre del optimismo y la esperanza. Si es cierto que sólo el dinero puede cambiar las cosas dónde queda el trabajo de personas como Gandhi, de Teresa de Calcuta, e incluso para los creyentes, de Jesus?
    El dinero es un gran arma pero me gustaría pensar que hay otras cosas que pueden hacer fuerza para que, si no que las situaciones cambien radicalmente que por lo menos empiecen a avanzar.

  7. Blogger Hombre de Uel  llegó el 12 noviembre, 2004 18:20 y dijo:    

    Sinceramente, lo poco que esas personas cambiaron el mundo ha sido tergiversado en favor siempre de aquellos que tuvieron dinero, o, en el mejor de los casos, ha acabado beneficiando a estos mas que a nadie.
    Dinero es poder, y siempre ha sido asi
