As much as I admire your resolve to oust the jerk(s) in the White House, I’m a little more skeptical. I just saw a poll (can’t remember who conducted
it) on MSNBC, and it had Bush in the lead over Kerry by 11 percentage points – it was Bush 52, Kerry 41, Nader 3.
The obvious lack of intelligence of the average America (I’m American), combined with their shoot ‘em up mentality and blatant arrogance will likely
assure Bush’s re-election. It’s a bold testimony to our stupidity that most American’s viewed Zell Miller’s angry, yet comical, performance the other
night as “inspired” and “powerful”. It goes to show, we humans can rationalize anything we choose to, no matter how outrageous. If we decide that cows
can fly, then by God, cows will fly. American’s have chosen to ignore what a disasterous job George W has done the last 4 years, what a danger he is
to our society and the rest of the world, that the national debt is growing dangerously out of control, that the poor are getting poorer and the rich
are getting richer, that more and more people have no medical coverage, that we were blatantly lied to in order to invade and occupy a country simply
to satisfy George W’s personal agenda at the expense of 1,000 young American’s lives so far, that 3 years after 9/11 those responsible have not been
brought to justice (What happened to Osama bin Laden?), that our fealess leader was a drunken draft dodger and that the rest of the world now hates
and fears us. Considering what it now represents, it’s getting to where I’m ashamed to be an American.
So, as much as I hope the Bush campaign of fear tactics, lies, contempt and mud-slinging comes crashing down over their self-righteous heads, I doubt
it will. Americans are too lame to allow that to happen. We’re too much in love with being lied to and abused.
I really hate being so negative, but the happy, prosperous days of the Clinton years are over and the repressed, war mongering, police state times of
George Bush are upon us. It will take a generation or more to right the wrongs commited by this foul and greedy administration. I think it’s a sad day
in the history of a once great nation …
