Bush GOP Democracy ... The Freedom to Kill and Kill and Kill
MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
The question is not "would" Bush mow people down like they have done in China, just for protesting, but, "could" Bush mow down people in America just for protesting; and this law makes it legal to kill, if you are a paranoid like Bush and "imagine" the threat. We have had all kinds of laws change due to this "imagined" threat used in the name of terrorism, and, yet, the laws have, in reality, been used against Americans, who are the real threat in Bush's mind.
The problem with Americans is that they do trust their government too much and have allowed the Bush GOP government to make "life and death," decisions for them, which end up mostly with innocent people's wasted lives and early deaths, as we have witnessed for the last five years.
Should it surprise Americans if they found out that Bush's ideas for governing mostly come from watching movies on TV?
This law is right out of the ideas from a paranoid George Bush. If there are people who do not believe this, then pay attention to the expenses that he creates for his own protection ... when, in reality, the majority of Americans couldn't care less about being in his company. Why is it so hard for Americans to believe that Bush is no different from any other mass murderer ... and feels nothing about the deaths resulting under his type of leadership or these type of laws.
How many deaths have to be the result of this Bush GOP leadership for people to want justice instead, and realize that the worst threat to their safety in the US is the Bush GOP administration ... Afghanistan, Iraq, New Orleans, Florida, Colorado, Wyoming, and they are trying to get the legality to kill in Texas. All of the killings in those places mentioned above, have gone without justice ... that doesn't make them legal in most of those recorded deaths, and the ones that are supposed to be legal in those states ... can't be called moral, not in a real democracy. If these laws are kept on our books, we have no right to talk about the violations of human rights to China, Russia, Iran, or any of those other dictatorial countries that murder their own without justice.
Now, the guy that was murdered in this unpunished crime, was shot in the back in a car in front of the killer's house ... what kind of threat was that? That is the type of threat this law protects people from when they decide to kill others, making the words, "if looks could kill," a reality to shoot first just because of how somebody perceived another person's looks. This is Bushism in the raw ... in reality. Blood-thirsty killing legalized.
This is the same type of paranoia that we see in the Bush GOP leadership. Anyone who helped to pass these laws, should be put out of office forever ... now, maybe, the NRA used to be a good organization ... well, so was most of the Republican Party before Nixon; and we could add to that list our "liberal" media, and many corporations that now put their profit above patriotism to their fellow Americans. How much more of our Democracy is to be destroyed, and how many more people are to be killed, and how much more regression does this country have to go through before Americans finally understand the real threat to this country, I wonder ... and decide to do something about it?
