    This President and his gang haven't hesitated to KNOWLINGLY, send in our sons and daughters to the slaughter.  In fact, they have so little in the way of morality, that they were willing to lie to us in order to gain our confidence.  They manipulated us, using the fear produced by 9/11.

    Do you really think our government wouldn't hesitate to turn it's guns on us?  Have you ever heard of Kent State?  I've seen these things but we have managed to triumph in the past.  We aren't up against Richard Nixon.  The neocon base has entrenched itself into American mainstream thinking thanks to the media which excuses and enables them.

    Yes, I agree MY government doesn't commit these atrocities, but George Bush's government is something else.  

    They lied and that breaks any bonds of trust.  They continue to lie, even when caught.  They have no morality.  From now on, it's their own fault if they are disbelieved before they are to be believed.

    At time Bush told these lies, it was clear to many of us that that's just what they were - lies.  If they were clear to us, they certainly were clear to the Democrats and the Republicans who still went ahead and voted for the war.  Democracy has enemies in high places.

      When I submitted the post above, in response to your post, I had read your post twice.  You said that your government wouldn't shoot your us.  I wasn't sure if you meant this to mean your government as opposed to Bush's government.  I didn't mean to offend you by sounding like I'm lecturing you about Kent State.  I honestly, wasn't sure what you mean.  I should have asked you to clarify before I shot from the hip.

      Sorry, I'm a little emotional right now and didn't mean to offend.

        What I mean to say (and as a native English speaker, I must admit I have no good excuse for such a tenuous grasp on the language), is this:

        Most of us understand that the Bush gang are not doing the people's will. They never meant to do good, but they fooled enough of our friends, family, neighbors and co-workers long enough to take and use power.

        If they do take the next step, open warfare on the people, they will have used up that benefit of the doubt. Until then, our Republican uncle, or religious co-worker will not have seen their own family and friends victimized. Until then, none of this is real to them. The necons can get away with murder, as long as the victims are anonymous to 51% of the voters.

        Another Kent State, and it's over.

      •  Oh, and no offense taken (none)
        With Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, James Dobson, and George W Bush shooting their mouths off, being mis-understood here comes in pretty low on the offense-o-meter.

        And please, don't stop being emotional on my account. For every John Adams, we need a cousin like Samuel. For every John Hancock, we need a neighbor like Paul Revere. Some of the best causes ever still need a little outrage to put them into action.
