  •  Apart from little matters like freedom of speech.. (4.00)
    ..it's also scary to think that as president, all you have to do is wage perpetual warfare, and a fairly large contingent of the public thinks you should therefore be immune from dissent.
    •  it also plays into shrub's (none)
      "charm" factor.... middle America loves to live with the illusion that "anyone" can be pres, even someone who could not pass a 3rd grade grammar-, civics-, or geography exam, like most of middle america; course, once you get to be pres, you're above the law and beyond reproach.
    •  Oceania (none)
      has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia...

      9/11 was the Neocons' Reichstag fire. "Patriot Act" = Enabling Act.

      •  Except when its been at war with Eurasia. (none)
        One way or another, it's always been at war . . .or always WILL be at war.

        I re-read it recently and it gives me chills.

        •  Eurasia? (none)
          I seem to remember being told that Eurasia has always been our ally.  And when I look it up in the old newspapers, sure enough Eurasia has always been our ally.  (Although I have this nagging memory of hating the Eurasians, but I must be mistaken...)

          There's no way we could have ever been at war with the Eurasians, and allied with someone as totally evil as Saddam... I mean Osama... I mean Eastasia.

    •  that number is dropping like a lead balloon. (none)
