12. Same.

And I had liberal friends at the time (immediately after 9/11) who thought GWB was what we needed at the time and thought he showed strength. I nearly vomited. Seriously. The first words out of my mouth to anyone around me on that tragic day were, "OMG... and we have HIM as President...OMG...OMG..."

I never got over the whole Gore/Bush election, and felt alone in my own country. Watching all the flags being hoisted on trucks, houses, etc., made me feel ill after 9/11. I felt I did not understand my country.

DU has always been a place for me to come and feel normal again, knowing others here were thinking along the same lines as me.
