“You don’t get everything you want. A dictatorship would be a lot easier.” Describing what it’s like to be governor of Texas. (Governing Magazine 7/98) — From Paul Begala’s “Is Our Children Learning?”
“I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don’t agree with each other, but that’s OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator,” Bush joked.– CNN.com, December 18, 2000
“A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there’s no question about it, ” [Bush] said. — Business Week, July 30, 2001
If you or I were to, oh, say, create a rule for the people who enter our home, that happens to contradict laws that are in our Constitution, we would be fined or imprisoned. At the very least we would be told that we had to cease and desist and we may even be liable for damages.
When George W. Bush first entered office, prior to the events of 9/11 (you know, PNACs new Pearl Harbor!), his public appearances would be absent of one thing; first amendment rights. In their Orwellian doublespeak the Bush administration would set up â€œfree speech zonesâ€ where people who did not support can go to protest and not be heard. In reality what they were setting up was â€œno free speech zonesâ€ around the newly ordained Coup-mander in Chief. In other words they were violating U.S. Constitutional law by eliminating first amendment rights.
Ironically, or should I say criminally the U.S. corporate news media, the same news media that is protected by the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution, refused to do their job which is to protect the rest of the U.S. Constitution from anyone and everyone who poses a threat to it. So the criminal corporate news media refused to use the freedom (and responsibility) granted to them by the second amendment to protect the first amendment.
And many of the people of this nation are to damn stupid to comprehend what is taking place. They have blindfolded themselves with an American flag while the real soul of America, the U.S. Constitution, is being obliterated by the George W. Bush administration and the U.S. corporate media. America; what a country.
Reminder to my right wing friendsâ€¦the flag does not protect you, it does not identify or protect your rights, it does not prevent criminals from taking control of your positions or your person and it does not outline a doctrine that sets us apart from the rest of the world enough to arrogantly claim that we are the greatest nation in the world. The U.S. Constitution however, does. It is time that you recognize your enemies. They are the people who are erasing the U.S. Constitution right in front of your face. They are the current administration and the current Congress. And they could not be doing the harm that they are without the full and willing cooperation by their enablers; the U.S. corporate media.
I have spoken about this before but the reason I bring it up again is because history is repeating itself. People today ask how the Germans did not notice the early signs of Hitlerâ€™s tyrannical rule. That is to say maybe if they stopped him when he started to get out of handâ€¦the world could have been spared of the larger harm that he had done. While George W. Bush is no Hitler he is a figure head for the tyrannical rule that is engulfing our nation. And even though being a dictator is easier, especially if that dictator is George W. Bush, a dictator and a democracy can not coexist. Why are we permitting them to? Think about it!
