Democracy Ain't What It Used To Be.

This is from Barry Crimmins website:

Americans should be bursting with pride. We've pulled together and accomplished something once thought impossible --
we've pile-driven George W. Bush's approval rating to an abysmal 19%. Bush's disapproval rating is a real tribute to the strength of our government. In any other democratic state (and most dictatorships!) 81% of the people would wield enough collective power to drive villains from office. But not in the U.S. of A!

Truly a sad state of affairs. Is it time to take up arms? But who would we take up arms against? My homies, the citizens of Arizona(McCain excepted), are no more to blame than I am for the wars that have bankrupted this country and robbed us of freedom. Driving the villains from office via ballot box doesn't work, so I suspect nothing will change after the 2008 elections.

This is from RangerAgainstWar's Blog:

The U.S. is not responsible for protecting people that will not bear arms in their own defense.

If they can not protect their own freedom, Ranger concludes they are not ready to be free.


What is sauce for the Iraqi is sauce for the American. Perhaps we hate ourselves for our freedom just like the rest of the world. Sigh.
