For eight years, President Bush sought more power and control over while professing to support freedom.  Freedom means less control. Freedom was too messy for the Republican Party. According to F. A. von Hayek no single entity is capable managing a complex interconnected network (like the United States). Economies are information exchanges. When you control the information (like science) in society; one runs the risk of a system failure like we have now. President Bush and the Republican Party own this huge failure and the messy consequences.  They assumed the power to regulate science, push religion and spread ignorance like a plague upon our houses. Democracy only works when people are informed.  People have not been told the truth. Machiavellianism and government by public relations have been used to devastating effect. With President Obama we are going to get to the truth and people aren’t going to like what they hear. Corporations will play "shoot the messenger" both figuratively and perhaps literally! What happens when industry shoots down the truth? We suffer.  Corporations are ideas. Ideas don’t bleed get sick or die like we, the people, do.

When one controls science one controls society. Science is the search for truth. For eight years we have lived under a veil of secrecy and lies. Who pays the price for our government's failures? Not government, we the people do.

I have been writing about health issues and forwarding my concerns to my federal legislators.  They send me 3 sentence letters or form letters. Not good enough! Tell Senators Chuck Grassley , Tom Harkin and Congressman Dave Loebsack you want President Bush and Republican Party to account for the harm they have done to America's health.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
