Four years ago, I watched the Bushies defy common sense and tell one whopper after another, so as to get us into a war that made no sense. I watched as one of MY senators (Jeffords) made one of the most gut wrenching decisions of his career to snatch power from those who would misuse it. I then watched right wing IDIOTS in other states give that power back. I have watched as men have been killed, the treasury has been looted, war crimes have been committed and the reputation of this formerly great country has been destroyed, all in the name of the Republican party and those who refused to think for themselves. I have watched as corruption has become the norm in Washington, led by those who hold the highest offices. . . . And I fear for my country. For never has it been so badly betrayed. Never has it been so badly damaged by those who pursue nothing more than wealth. I've seen Bush's cabinet, made up of millionaires, direct policies that are incredibly damaging to the poor and middle class. I've seen America's corporations shipping jobs overseas by the millions, abandoning pensions, sheltering in the bankruptcy laws, gouging the consumer for life's basic needs and the Congress rubber stamping the destruction. All are guilty of nothing more than greed, and stand ready to sacrifice what is left of the shining light on the hill, the United States Of America, for nothing more than a few dollars.
I weep for this country, for I do not believe it can survive another three years of "Conservative" rule.
It was good while it lasted, see you in hell. . . .
