I have not be effected by anything that Bush has put into law. You say he destroyed my rights? What rights are those? What has changed in your life that is different today then it was 20 years ago. My life and rights are exactly the same. And btw there is no proof that the NWO even exists. You don't prove something wrong that has never proven to be right. It is like saying aliens exist because there is no proof the dont exist. But by all means, if have proof, please post it. And you can wish all you want about the USA and its downward spiral, but it isnt going to happen. BTW as per my prediction about about the NWO and Obama and anti christ threads, there are already threads starting today on this. Guess I was wrong. I said two weeks. It was one day. What a joke.

A lot has changed since Bush took office. I notice there are security cameras everywhere on the roadways where I live these days. When Bush took office there were ZERO cameras on the intersections in my area, which is suburban. Basically a lot of things that "you are complete kook conspiracy theorist to believe would ever happen" before Bush took office, are now a reality.
Since Bush took office, I've been probably been getting spied on a lot more, just like you. Since Bush took office, the world has changed from basically loving the USA, with the most famous example being the article French person written "I am an American" after 9/11, to a nation where the world hates the USA, with the most famous example being the article by the same French person writing "I am not an American" shortly after Bush started shooting at anything that moved overseas and had a patch of oil underneath.
Also, 9/11 happened under his watch. 9/11 may not have affected you in any way at all but I'll tell you it has effected me more than any other event. So in that sense Bush has personally effected me a hell of lot more than I imagined any president could.
I refer you to the Patriot Act, along with any passed versions of that make thinking certain ways or expressing certain ideas a crime. I'll be honest, I don't have a list for you ready to go of Bush laws that have effected my life. Maybe I should have done that, and I probably will with Obama since he'll be just as much of a jerk I suspect. But perhaps unlike you my life is a lot about OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES. So if something effects someone else then I take personal offense as an American citizen who cares about this country.
So, I don't believe its fair at all to say "oh it does not specifically effect you it only effected thousands of others". Well as it happens I do have empathy and when a fellow human is suffering than I may not be particularly happy about it either. Bush has effected everyone in the United States.

Bush is not officially out of office until after Obama takes the swearing in. The second that is done, then Bush will officially be out of office.

Those who said that bush would have hanged on to power didnt hear what he was saying.
He told people that he wouldnt miss being president, actually that he was pretty tired of it. He said he was tired of being in the spotlight with the press etc...
He is actually quite happy to quit.
