How Do We Feel About Mr. Bush?
Posted by jeremiasx on January 23, 2007
Well…to start off…most of us in the segment of what one might call the “intelligent” population believes he should never have been President in the first place…secondly, now that we’ve been stuck with him for six years, we’re going to try to find a way to get rid of his sorry ass from office, hopefully through impeachment processes which are gaining a huge amount of momentum on the Internet and through calls to our Congressional lawmakers to grow a pair of collective balls and get it done.
This man, Mr. Bush, represents only the face of an insidious beast which seeks to destroy our country from within. He has manufactured, along with his accomplices in the Neocon movement, a method of dividing the country along the lines of race, class, religion, and morality…just to name a few.
I’ve never seen politics so polarized in my own lifetime…I didn’t get to see what it was like during the height of the Vietnam era, though I’ve heard plenty of stories from those who lived through it…the similarities are quite striking. Bleeding heart liberals and hawkish “tough-guy” conservatives fighting each other, literally in the streets…the protestors versus the cops, the peace activists versus the angry voices of the pro-war forces…it’s all coming to life, but this time it’s not in the streets…not yet.
If the Internet chatter I’ve heard invariably in political chats provides a good indicator of the reality of the mindset of the parties involved in this current act in American history, the confrontations we’ll see in the streets shall be bloody, violent, and destructive. People openly threaten each other with physical violence in blogs, chat rooms, and other forums for public discussion when their views collide. Where is the civility, folks? What happened to political debate and discourse that didn’t involve screaming epithets and threatening people’s lives and physical safety? I’m no pussy, so I’m not worried about 99% of these morons…but the problem is, many people ARE scared…and when they get scared, they get quiet…that’s the aim of the ones who will use threats of violence and fearmongering to try to slam their rhetoric into our minds. They succor silence with fear.
I am a peace activist and believe that we’re in a phony war to bolster the interests of the international bankers, the corporations, and the military-industrial complex of the United States. Anyone who looks at our history through the lens of honest self-appraisal will easily see the parallels, the similarities, and the mind-numbing rhetoric which is still being employed against our population through the media and the politicians.
How long will we persist in the delusion of living in an open and free republic when we are moving closer and closer each day to a totalitarian regime, which has set itself further into power by skirting, rewriting, and altogether IGNORING the rules and traditions of U.S. Constitutional law and due process which have made our country “work” in the past?
It’s disgusting, it’s disheartening, and it BETTER scare some of us into taking action before this is all too late. We need to bring the focus back into the arena of civility real quick, or it’s going to get out of hand…maybe worse than it ever has. I pray that we will not turn a deaf ear to our brothers and sisters in this world for the sake of being right in our own eyes…a greater folly there never was.
