Time to move on and get back to work.

President re-elect Mr. George W. Bush defeated Senator John F. Kerry in 2004 US presidential elections. 286 Vs. 252 final tally of electoral votes and 59.46 million Vs. 55.95 million. It’s been one of the greatest victories for GOP and any president since 1936.

As expected, millions of people across world are shocked and it is good time to see various news articles blaming different groups, thoughts, moves and ideas for the defeat of J. F. Kerry. I have my own little thought…

Every liberal or I must say every non-conservative, literate and sufficiently empowered with strength of common sense has voted against Mr. George W. Bush in this election but at the end of the day, the fact is country has more so conservative and narrow minded people.

Mostly on the coast (California, Washington, NY…) where people are little bit smart, aware of the global situation and understand the fact that world is nothing but a small village of diverse thinking, have voted against Mr. Bush but let's face it we have more people in number, who still believe in concept of “me and my country", who are still not connected to outside world and who are still alienated from popular thinking. These people have nothing to do with what goes on outside of their country and how it might affect them in long run.

One of the good things about Democracy and election is this:
Country is run on the basis of majority thinking and of course minority has to live with it... The only way we can change what has happened is by being in majority and only way we can be in majority is by making more and more people aware of global thinking and global ideas, challenging their little narrow-minded town and country thinking.
