George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are our American dictators.
These are two messianic, misguided, self-absorbed men. Bush says he is “the decider” and when asked about the impending Congressional resolution opposing the troop build up, Cheney said, “It can’t stop us.”
This delusional duo believe their will reigns supreme. Never mind the will of the congress, never mind the will of the people, never mind the experienced guidance of our military leaders, never mind the bi-partisan study offered by the the Iraq Study Group. The last thing Bush and Cheney represent is democracy.
If you don’t agree with me, maybe you”ll agree with a man who said, “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” As we now know, the American people along with the world community were given anything but the real facts in order to bring about the Iraq War. The man I just quoted also said, “No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent” and “(n)early all men can handle adversity but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Bush and Cheney were given power and it poisoned them, or, perhaps it would be more accurate to say, power released the poison within them, and now it threatens to poison us.
Oh, by the way, in case you were wondering, the man I was quoting is Abraham Lincoln. He was all about Democracy. In fact he died for it.
