At the risk of becoming a political forum...

Anyone who knows me, knows that I run from political discussions. What is not always known, though, is my reason for running. Most assume that I am trying to bury my head in the sand. Or, that I don't know anything about the subject. Some are wise enough to realize that it's just not acceptably discussed, along with religion. But the real reason is that no one is interested in hearing what I have to say. Well, since this man is much more knowledgeable and experienced and qualified to present a point, I'm going to recommend reading his article. And I'm going to guess that zero people will read it (not because they aren't interested in the subject matter, but because it has more than one paragraph). I'll put the link right here at your fingertips... and, as they say... you can lead a horse to water...

Who says only Bush stands for this? Good businessmen usually buy both candidates well in advance. Think I mentioned Sam Giancanni in an earlier comment on this regard.

Did Kerry come out against it?

Did Kerry come out against what?

I'm sorry if you misunderstood. For one thing, I am not trying to post information that would sway a person for or against anyone. It is the entire system that I'm personally against. And neither do I think that this writer was attacking Bush, specifically. He was pointing out some things that have been accomplished during Dubya's administration... but clearly he is not saying that if Junior weren't in office, that all things would be well.

“Team Bush lacks the imagination and nerve necessary for real tyranny…
But I truly believe that tyranny is coming, and that we will indeed be a fortunate people if it passes us by without paying us a visit. Somewhere, people with real imagination and the desire to run the state are lurking, waiting for the opportunity, for their moment to come. All the laws are written, the machinery is in place, the paramilitary police are ready to take orders…”

The trouble is, that the groundwork has been laid for the upheaval of a truly free society (if indeed we ever really had one). Realizing that there are many societies that are "less free." But just because living in this country is better than living in others doesn't make everything that happens here right... of course, that thinking is not reasonable. However, for the most part, Americans are not at all concerned. As long as "they are... free to wave to flag, to love the government, to support the troops, to pray for the President and thank God for America. That "freedom" won't change.
