America's foreign policy

Ahhh, I finally found a political analyst savvy enough to figure out what the fuck has been going on in this country lately:

"Naturally the common people don't want war, but after all it is the leaders who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."

--- Hermann Goering, Germany, 1946

If you want to get Bush the Lesser out of office, you might consider going here or here for some useful information.

If by chance you've been living in a cave for the last few years, or have just had your head firmly wedged up your ass, go see 525 Reasons to Dump Bush.

And for you bargain hunters who think 525 reasons isn't enough, here's a special, for you, today only, One Thousand Reasons to Dump George Bush.

I mean, even if you aren't upset about the killing, and the lying, and the corporate thievery, and the incredible deficit, and the damage to the environment, and the lack of jobs, and the economy tanking, don't you at least want to have a president that doesn't make you cringe with embarassment every time he speaks?
