For fuck's sake!

Longest post EVERRRRR is NOT a description of the End of Days. It's simply an answer to the question, "Why should I care?"

I used the scenario of a nuked U.S. city to demonstrate how our democratic republic could quickly slide into fascism.

Does anyone think that Bush & Co. wouldn't gladly assume totalitarian power if they could get away with it?

End of Days, indeed! I'm not even going to try anymore; I'll just stick to preaching to the converted (or perverted as the case may be).

i think you are mistaken in directing all your displeasure at Bush alone -- it doesn't matter which figurehead they stick up there, it still means the USA acts in a totalitarian fashion to the rest of the world...

[blog FreeLove999] - When I'm bitching about Bush, I mean him and his administration, and neo-con Straussian sympathizers.

It really does make a difference, hon. The ideology of neo-conservatives is quite different from traditional conservatives, and a lot more dangerous to the rest of the world. Yet politically, the two camps align to vote Republican.

The world would look a whole lot different had the educated right had more power than the religious right. McCain would have been elected President; September 11 might not have happened, we would not have gone into Iraq, and we'd be taking a much harder line with both Iran and DPRK - and we would have more leverage with those countries. Certainly, not even you would allow Iran & DPRK to have nuclear weapons? (And yes, as a matter of fact I do know SA's nuclear history.)

American politics is always going to be political - that's why Clinton did nothing to stop the genocide in Rwanda. However, stopping the genocide in Bosnia was not political. Americans did not care one fucking bit about Bosnia; as I recall, less than 10% could even identify it on a map. Clinton did that because it was the right thing to do. People - and governments - usually agree with you when you're right, and that's why the rest of the Western world went to war with us back in '99.

That's why most of the Western world didn't go to war with us in 2003.

If you aren't familiar with neo-conservative ideology and how it differs from traditional conservative and republican ideologies, I urge you to find out.
