Bush won, consummating the victory of religious values over American values.
Separation of church and state was one of the original and foundational American values second in importance only to the right of free speech. Both will be under attack in the next four years. Electing Bush to a second term is a nail in America's coffin.
The religion virus has spread so far and wide in America that droves of people voted for their religious persuasion against their own economic interests
. Average Americans voted to give tax breaks to billionaires and tax dollars for faith-based initiatives.
Now, this clown in the white house will be convinced he has a mandate from god to further tear down the wall between church and state.
The last time religion ruled, it was called the dark ages. America, get ready for a modern dark age. Get ready to see Roe-v-Wade overturned. Get ready to see a government assault on pornography and unmarried sex. Get ready to pay taxes for faith-based government. Get ready to see a government-backed christian assault on everything that christians hate, like sex and free speech. Get ready to see government-sanctioned police brutality and violations of civil liberties. Get ready for religious hysteria.
There is a possible silver lining - the president's god squad might get so fanatical in the next 4 years that it becomes painfully obvious we need a constitutional amendment separating government from even the slightest hint of religion.
