The Right Has It

The Result of the Presidential Election is that Sarko goes past the post with 53% of the vote. Now we will see if there is a New France or more of the same from the ruling party that is the right. Sego is already giving her speech. Voting closed at 8pm and the outpolls, always accurate give us the result. It's quick clean and simple.
But what now?

What does it mean when the President elect mentions the opposition and all his supporters boo and holler? What does it mean when the President elect says 'No, we must respect Madame Royale because half of France has voted for her, and it is the job of the President of France to respect all of the people of France?" Does it mean that only because he is president he will give lip service to you? Or does it mean that political views are now as zero, and he will actually respect everyone regardless of race, colour, creed?. Mon Oeil. I could write so much more about what I have seen tonight but why? A country gets the leader they deserve. If 20% of the population couldn't have been bothered to vote or to make a choice they will indeed reap what they sow.
Sarkozy has called on people to support the US. France is a friend of the US. I wonder what this means for both Bush and his war on terror? Or is it Sarkozy's anti Magrebian, anti Arab, anti Berbour, anti anyone from the middle east or a former French colony policy that will change forever the face of modern Europe? It is definitely a strange time to be here. Yes the Right have it, but it doesn't mean they are correct.

Everyone in America can trace their roots to immigrants...unless you're an Indian. What is inhumane about telling them they have to serve in the military of the country they so desperately want to be a part of? I served. What is so inhumane about telling them they have to pay taxes? I pay taxes. What is so inhumane about making them become CONTRIBUTING members of society rather than merely taking. "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country"...Do those words mean nothing these days?

Welcome Beasta. Thank you for your comment. I am not sure how it relates to my post..I am tempted to ask what is so humane about denigrating people because of their origin. What is so humane about going to war and killing people who are minding their own business. What is so humane about people getting rich off war as people of principal believe what their leaders tell them and go fight?
What is so humane about calling people scum? What is so humane about war, hate, deciet lies? See I respect you served your country, I served mine but in a different way and I paid taxes in both this one and my own. My country did nothing for me I did more for it. Those words were used to let lazy governments off the hook. The people are the country. Without them there is nothing to govern. Be safe and have a great American Mothers day. Ours is later.
