What more can I say?

Well, a thank you would be nice: thank you, George Bush, for everything that you’ve done. It really has made me a better person. Odd isn’t it, that I’d be thanking President Bush?

After 460 plus posts during my first year,
it is only right that I start year 2 off with another politically motivated jab. Bush is part of the reason I started this blog. When he entered my consciousness during the 2000 election campaign I was 14 and I regarded the botched 2000 elections as a turning point in my line of thinking. Or, it’s when I started thinking. Before then, I was a kid.

There’s no need to mention his short comings as a human being; only God will judge him. Or most likely, God’ll pardon him. The eight years he’s spent in the supreme, international limelight have truly worsened America and this planet. Yet I read an article recently predicting the ’08 Republican candidates to be worse than Bush. Well, no one will be worse than Bush, not even Jong-Il—can we have a draw? What will be worse is the fact the Bush has already broken down laws and brains to his liking. Thus if a Republican is elected, he’ll have a head start to ruin more things; he’ll build on Bush’s record.

In thanking Bush for making me even more of a harsh American critic and extreme liberal, I forget to think of my other half. The Bush Doctrine has not united; we Americans stand fiercely divided. I swear when I look at someone I wonder if they believe in Bush or not. If I feel they do (which happens a lot), I hate them. I mean, I have a 50/50 chance of my hate being legit, right? Those against Bush’s America are still in a minority—remember it’s cool to bash Bush. The number of people Bush has galvanized with this New World Order outweighs anything else. Evangelicals are rising. Cronyism, nepotism, and its correlation with corporate entities are glaring and despicable. The power available is shrinking. The economy continues to falter. The War in Iraq was strategic; it wasn’t a mistake over supposed WMD’s. The continued support of Israel is evidence that the U.S. intends to take over with Democracy, not help with Democracy. Terrorism sells ballots. People honestly believe terrorism is the problem—the root is why terrorists turn to blowing themselves up? Just look at Middle Eastern history in the early 1900’s for an answer.

If it wasn’t for him, for what he believes and what mess he’s spread around the globe, I wouldn’t be pissed. Republicanism motivates me; I can’t sit still. I need a voice, a strong voice. He’s made me stand up for what I believe in and what I think is bullshit.
