Be very afraid of this man

Even though I have already started drafting some Aimless-related entries and would like to write about that stuff, there are more serious things to talk about right now. We Americans have some pretty important elections coming up, and I might focus on that for a while because there are people out there who still don't get it. The greatest threat to our freedom and safety is our own government. That really scares me. Aimless isn't going anywhere; our country is going... going... ???

I'll start by commenting on some bits of an article about the dangerous criminal currently residing in the White House.

Quoting extensively from letters, Web site statements, audio recording and videotapes purportedly from terrorists, as well as documents found in various raids, Bush said that al Qaida, homegrown terrorists and other groups have adapted to changing U.S. defenses.

For example, Bush cited what he called "a grisly al Qaida manual" found in 2000 by British police during an anti-terrorist raid in London...

Let me get this straight: al Qaeda adapted to US "counterterrorism" strategies at least a year before the strategies were even implimented? I mean, I may not be the smartest person on the planet, but I can count, and I know 2000 came before 2001. Or are you trying to tell us al Qaeda is more than one step ahead of the US government?

"The terrorists who attacked us on September the 11th, 2001, are men without conscience, but they're not madmen," he said. "They kill in the name of a clear and focused ideology, a set of beliefs that are evil but not insane."

Ah, that clears it up. You're saying the only difference between them and you, Governor Bush, is that they aren't madmen. Right?

In its updated counterterrorism strategy, the White House said that "the enemy we face today in the war on terror is not the same enemy we faced on Sept. 11."

Perhaps that's because instead of going after the real enemy (or just leaving them the fuck alone for once), you created new enemies. Or maybe it's because more people are beginning to realize that you are the enemy. Iraqi people; American people; people all over the world.

We Americans need to get this evil motherfucker out of office. Or at the very least we need take out his pawns in Congress so we can limit the dictatorial powers he has given himself. In case you somehow have not figured this out yet, George Bush is not a good person and he most certainly is NOT on our side. And by "our," I mean the people of the United States of America--the liberal people and the conservative people.

How much proof do you need?
