Just Another Rant (Reprised)

Time For A Bit Of The Old Rant. . .
by The Old Hippie, Because It Is So In Our Collective Face

[ Note: Feb. 24, 2005 - To the readers of this blog - This "rant" is still true. ]

This picture says a thousand articles about how we "elected" this administration.  In essence "We" didn't.  "We" all know it is true - not possibly, not maybe, not could be - but definitely true.  You know it, and I know it.  It's a sure bet that all of us Americans deserve what is coming, because we did allow this to happen.  No ifs ands or buts - We allowed, and are still allowing it to go on.
Hacker All of the born-again imbeciles that actually wanted this do truly deserve what's coming much more than the "we" that fought this, even though it is now obvious we just didn't fight hard enough.  Most of us, the other 49%, actually believed, right up to the end, that our democracy was still intact, and would weed out the insane religious zealots and the criminal politicians with the vote - What a joke on us.  But the "why" of our deserving what's coming?  Is because - "We" knew -
"We" knew private corporations, run by two arrogant "Bush Pioneers," two brothers heading both corporations, had full control of the voting computers, and "we" knew these same corporations had 23 convicted felons in positions of manage-
ment, and software control, of the programs that control the
"count," without any traceable paper trail.  "We" knew it, and allowed it to happen anyway.

So. . .

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Yes - I'm angry at "them" for bringing this about - BUT - I'm much more pissed off at the "we" that allowed this come about.  No matter how you reason it, or justify it, or deny it, the "we" are more at fault, than the "them," of our divided nation.

"We" were not deluded by insane religious rapture, "we" were not lost within the throes of profit and power of neo-con'ed aggressive Empire, "we" were not members of the corporate criminal cronies - "we" were/are simple naive Americans that believed our Constitutional Democracy actually was still a reality.  Believed it would protect us.  But the reality is our government is now, and has been for the last four years, run by the combination of insane fundamentalist zealots, delusional neo-con imperialists, and opportunistic corporatist criminals taking every advantage of the other two's insanity.

No matter how you twist it - It is conspiracy that is so obvious that it is invisible within the denial.
Every day we look more and more like Germany of the late 1930s.  We deserve what is coming.

The rest of the innocents on the planet do not.

Well said man, you hit it on the nail right there. Although the prospects for what is to (possibly) come is a little frightening. Hitler is probably just laughing at the irony of it all, while (most) presidents are now probably rolling in their graves.
