Four more years

America has spoken. It supports Bush, Cheney, the Straussian neoconservatives, the invasion of Iraq, the rejection of the UN, the rejection of international cooperation on the environment, the Patriot Act, tax cuts for the super-rich, Abu Ghraib, the detention of individuals without Geneva rights, record budget deficits, bans on legitimate scientific research, and the first loss of jobs in seventy years. Mr. Bush has increased his vote by millions; he won the popular vote and will most likely win the electoral vote and be re-elected. America approves of the last four years and wants four more years of the same. America likes Mr. Bush more in 2004 than it did in 2000. The best experts agree: Bush won because Americans share his moral values.

The world was watching, and America has decided. The idea that American policies during the last four years are somehow divorced from the will of the American people has been shown to be false: Americans approve of the last four years.

The results of this Global Test will not be forgotten.
