talk about Obama winning the selection. First, these are my opinions, and if you don't like what you hear then you can kiss my ass. I am not trying to offend anyone, I just want to share my thoughts, and I will be happy to read and listen to your comments. And I'm gonna be frank through this, ok. First, I want to say; I am norwegian. I've never been in the US, but let me tell you; there has been no other country in the world that has pissed me off as much as USA. And I'm not saying I hate all Americans. I've met a few of you, in my country, and my impression is that you're very open and so very friendly. I have friends here on DA that are from the US, and they are all lovely people! So, do I hate americans? No, I don't. But your country surely has suffered like hell itself through Bush's rule for over 8 years now! I seriously thought, with all this shit happening, with the people of the US who hold the power, the damned republicans and so on, bombing just to get some oil... I had lost every freaking belief in your country.
So, as this selection came up, and I knew Obama was up for selection, I thought 'that guy doesn't have a snowflake chance in hell.' Why? Because arent' most of the people in the higher order of USA freaking white guys who would shoot their asses off before ever allowing a black person to be president? And even though Obama perhaps would get the most votes, I was even convinced that somehow someone would start screwing with the numbers, and like some miracle; McCain would win. I had no, and I mean absolutely, NO belief that Obama would win, even though I hoped for it.
A few nights ago, late at night, I was just watching some TV before I got to bed, and I stopped by CNN or NBC or whatever and I see with large letters; VICTORY FOR OBAMA. And my first thought is "What, he got most votes in maybe one state?". So I leave the remote, and I watch. And soon I see McMain holding a speach, and he's congratulating Obama as the new president of the United States. I swear, my freaking jaw dropped down to the floor.
I may not know much about politics, or about you Americans, but I believe that Bush have single handedly fucked up your country in 8 years more than any man could ever had done through a lifetime. And now, with all my faith in the US blown out of the window, Obama is to become the first black american president. So, I guess what I try to say is; You proved me wrong. I have great hopes that this man will do as he promise; change your country for the better. And he does not only have responsibility for the US, his rule is something that will effect the entire world.
All you people in USA:
I share your joy. <3
