We are a people with a system heavily invested in keeping us pig ignorant. On the news today one wag was saying how all these suspicious types come to America to destroy it from within because we have the freedoms that allow them to do just that...something they supposedly couldn't do from other countries. In other words...let's ditch our enviable freedoms so we can ...what, SAVE them?
What he didn't mention was that this same free and open system can be seized by a Bush...that elections can be stolen, laws overturned, wars conducted as "police actions"...and our Freedoms subverted by home grown "Good Ole Boys"...years before we piss off some peasants somewhere by what we do to their countries...leading them to conclude that America is run by Fascists and the only hope they have is to strike back at civillians cause the military is invulnerable.
