Bin Laden, Bin Laden Boooo. Are you scared?

Islamofascism, Muslims, Boooo.. are your running away?

Soccer moms, are you shrieking in terror, hiding your children form Islamic boogeymen cooking up terrorist plots in the next suburban housing development?

It is pathetic, that most of the republican candidates want you to feel frightened, very frightened. And the lamestream media generally do what they can to help create the atmosphere of fear.

We live in times where there are good reasons to fear. But not the reasons the right wing would have you sivering in your boots.

Be afraid for your freedoms, afraid that your phone company is helping the government spy on you, afraid that the monopoly cable company you depend on for broadband will shut you off if you use their service too much.

Be afraid that you will never see a USA that is respected by the other nations of the world.

Be afraid that your children will never have the wealth of opportunities to achieve more than you.

Be afraid that the unleashing of corporations, released from reasonable regulations protecting humans, will never be put back in the box.

Be afraid that the environment will never attain the legal protections it once had and it will gradually decline, with fish, bees, biodiversity all falling, failing.

Be afraid that selfish politicians on both sides of the two party system will never allow the opening of american politics to multi-party participation, with equal treatment for third parties and instant runoff voting or something like it for all elections, so only majority victories are ever achieved.

Be afraid that the criminals in elected office, who made billion dollar deals with corporations will be allowed to get away scot-free to use their money to corrupt more politicians, to finance swiftboat attack ads against honest candidates with integrity.

Be afraid that the US will continue its fall as an economic superpower, losing more industries, failing to protect workers, as the traitorous leaders and legislators hand over the keys to our economic kingdom to transnational corporations that rape and pillage and take total advantage of the vulnerability these globalist bad deals set.

Be afraid that extremist Christofascist American talibans will do all they can to take away your rights, destroy our educational system and corrupt our nation so they can impose their medieval world view and value system upon us.

You have a choice. Be afraid of what they want you to fear and you get the rest of these fears to go along with them. Or live your life with courage. Be an American with guts, not a cowardly right wing sheep. Find your heart and you'll find the real America. Lose it and we lose our America the America the founders envisioned, the America millions of soldiers have fought and died to defend. 

Afraid? Damned right you should be-- just not what "they" are telling you to fear.
