Election results

No, I've not lost my marbles. I simply want to jump for joy over the Australian elections, which is a very important event. John Howard has won his 4th Consecutive election, and picked up 85 seats for the Coalition, to retain his position as Prime Minister of Australia.

Pixy of Ambient Irony, gave a detailed description or breakdown of how things stand per region. These elections were important because John Howard, is a strong supporter and an important member of the Coalition of the Willing in the Iraqi war. For some thoughts on what this means to Americans, visit Nicole at Potomac Ponderings.

Now, only one election remains for this year, ours. Let me say that from walking around NYC this weekend things do not look well for Bush in NY. Yes, despite having a Republican mayor and governor, the Democratic machine and celebrities have been out in full force these past 2 weeks.

I just learned that although Bruce Springsteen is encouraging people to vote during local concerts, he is also saying that "if you mislead the public you deserve to lose your job", to which the crowd responds with a roaring cheer and applause.

I feel that John Kerry has helped people forget the lengthy process we suffered at the hands of the members of the United Nations. It was very painful to watch.

So as I wait for the election results from Afghanistan, which will probably take weeks to learn, I wonder if Al Queda will make good on it's promise to attack us during Ramadan which begins October 16th. Ramadan has long been a time of Jihad for radical muslims. It is also the time when various branches of Al Queda flex their muscles in Indonesia, the Philippines, Israel, and Iraq.

All I can do is pray that God protect our beloved country and our citizens throughout the world.

I think God has already answered those prayers in the form of the US & Coalition armed forces :-)
