I’m not going to say much here. You know what I think. I’m not going to tell you to get out and vote because, quite frankly, unless you’re informed and not voting for Bush, I’d prefer you didn’t go vote. Stay home and dream dreams of empire.
I’ll say this, though. Want to see Bush’s idea of freedom? Take a look at the freedom he’s brought to Iraq. People are rounded up on the streets and brought to prisons where they’re tortured, without being actually accused of anything. Innocents die as part of collateral damage. The people go without electricity, decent schools, clean water, and so forth while giant corporations make huge profits. The bad guys we’re supposed to be fighting are allowed to simply walk up to munitions depots and take whatever they want. Reporters are not allowed to cover most of the goings on. The cost of the war in human and civilian lives is not discussed. Any questioning of it is seen as disloyal and unpatriotic. And all for what? Lies.
Please stay home tomorrow if this sounds reasonable to you.
