Worst year for liberals
designated as: International year of volunteers
Preceded by: 2000
Succeeded by 2002

The year 2001 is the year that began the 21st Century, or the Third Millennium. The year 2000 was the last year of the 20th Century according to Mathematicians but most people thought the 21st Century started with the year 2000.

2001 was also the year of the worst terrorist attack in United States history. Further George W Bush was inaugurated though he had no right to be President because Al Gore got more votes in the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election. For both these reasons American Liberals feel it was a bad year. Due to 9/11 Dubya signed the USA PATRIOT Act & established the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which began to take away American Civil liberties.

However Timothy J. McVeigh (responsible for the Oklahoma city bombings) was executed on June 11 2001 at the age of 33.
