Our president calls others "evildoers" because they kill civilians and, then, he retaliates, slaughtering another country's civilians-a country that had nothing to do with the original carnage.
How can we condone acts of atrocity and call ourselves good?
The National Intelligence Estimate has reported that the war in Iraq not only has increased terrorism but, actually, has spawned a new generation of terrorists. Meanwhile, George Bush and the Republicans are campaigning in the run up to the November elections, exploiting the electorate by using fear with the utterly outlandish lies that only they can protect us from those who wish to harm us on our own soil-this homeland that they have done so little to secure. Meanwhile, the hapless Democrats are slinking around like pimply-faced adolescents with low self esteem, afraid to show a smidgen of chutzpah lest they seem soft on terror, lest they open themselves to criticism, lest they show their huge deficits of confidence.
Forget Bush's superego-he either doesn't have this essential or it's morbidly obese. The superego is the element of personality that dictates conscience-right and wrong. If it becomes too massive, a person is motivated by moral rigidity. Sound familiar?
That's an affirmative.
Fear led Americans to trust this failed president. Perhaps, fear of his policies will lead us to demand peace and justice. Finally.
