The unbearable tightness of being very afraid all over again

It's that time of year again, folks: the time when we're supposed to bend down and worship the current occupiers of the White House for being "tough" (stubborn) and making the world "safer" (more dangerous).

Dick Cheney claimed (then did a flip-flop) this week that "we'll get hit again and we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States" if we vote for the "wrong" guy. He seemed to be trying to tell us that if he and Bush aren't placed in power by the Supreme Court for another four years that we're basically in for an eternity of hell and damnation.

As if the past 3 years and 8 months haven't been just that!

We mustn't forget that the 9/11 attacks occurred on Bush and Cheney's watch. Anthrax in the mail killed people on their watch, too. The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, "free speech zones," Guantanamo Bay, and Abu Ghraib (American style) came into being. Bin Laden has been forgotten. Saddam Hussein served as a convenient scapegoat. Bush puffed up his chest and said to "bring 'em on." Wars abroad, over 1,000 American soldiers and 11,000 Iraqi civilians killed, millions of jobs lost, a huge deficit...

Do we really need any more reasons to get rid of these bastards?

A global poll says that the people of 30 out of the 35 nations would choose Kerry over Bush. That speaks volumes. The lies, the smears, and of course the bombs have not won over any "hearts and minds." The world hates what Bush stands for, and as a result, looks down upon America and Americans.

What are you going to do about it? Between now and November 2, convince people to vote. Vote by absentee ballot if at all possible, especially if Diebold voting machines are in use where you live. And, like Dick Cheney says, don't vote for the "wrong" ticket!

It's time for a regime change in the USA.

If you're up for some nostalgia, take a look at this long post I wrote one year ago.
