We are Bush's enablers...
It isn't so much the Bush administration that bothers me...  well, OK, it *IS*...  but what *REALLY* bothers me is all of the enablers throughout our society who have let all this evil happen.

I mean:
  • Bush didn't replace the ENTIRE MILITARY -- but they were willing to accept (and give) orders to torture Iraqi civilians who they KNEW weren't involved in any mischief.  (Not that torture would have been OK even if they WERE...)

  • Bush didn't replace the ENTIRE POLICE FORCE -- but they've been willing to arrest people for wearing the wrong shirt or waving the wrong sign...

  • Bush didn't replace the ENTIRE MEDIA -- but they've been perfectly willing to actively help cover up Bush's crimes.  Even the so-called-liberal New York Times had dirt on Bush's illegal spying many months before the election, but sat on it for fear of affecting the outcome...

  • Bush didn't replace the business CEO's -- but with few exceptions (like Qwest and Google), they've been perfectly willing to hand over their customers' private records to an increasingly fascist regime...
If we were HALF the country we keep pretending we are, Bush could never have done SO MUCH damage SO QUICKLY.  But the fact is, we're a lazy, rich, ignorant country -- ripe to be molded into an utterly unrecognizable form with a few choice words and scare tactics...

Never again can we look at Germany and say "How could they have let Hitler happen?  Didn't they see what was going on?"

They saw -- just like we see the torture we're engaging in.  But it was easier not to think about it... or pretend it was somehow justified in the name of Homeland (Fatherland) Security...  just like we do now...
