I am a very negative person. I’m the first to admit that I am a pessimist (hence the title). However, in my defense, look at the world today. How can you not be a pessimist? It’s fairly obvious that we are losing Iraq. Headline: Insurgents Gun Down 21 in Iraqi Village. Everyday the headline read 21 killed, 30 killed, 200 killed. More and more people are dying and we are listening to a man who wants to stay the course and thinks that everyone hates us because of our freedom. No, they hate us because of the president. The truth, the sad truth, is that our country is in the pits. There is no longer a government for the people elected by the people. We have a mass voting scam, Republicans that are only for rich, white people and Democrats who are no longer what any sane person would consider liberal. Our Democrats are the new Republicans. Face the facts. In today’s world, it’s better to be a pessimist because it seems that pessimists really see what is going on.
