A government that supports a free nation only steps in when people are hurting (emotionally, physically, economically and whatnot) each other. Under Bush things like the Patriot Act take away your constitutional rights, and more importantly your individual, human rights.
More than any other president before him bush has pushed his personal agenda into congress. Hopefully his greed, his hate towards gays, his apparent love for war and killing, and his sinister dishonesty will not leave a lasting imprint on America.
No, my blog is not about politics, the underlying meaning of this post is philosophical.
The wonderful philosopher Kant argued that to find the true moral worth of something you did you must not look at the consequences of the action but the morals behind the action itself.
Now you may or may not have seen this comparison before, but allow me to lay it out for you the way I think it should be.
Clinton and Bush both lied. It is a world wide proven and accepted fact that Bush lied about the need for war in Iraq. It is also widely thought that it is not moral to lie. If everyone in the world lied the state of things would be very sorry indeed.
Now, I don’t know about you, but there’s a bell ringing here. Why hasn’t Bush been impeached? Why did he slip through the cracks.
Perhaps you don’t like Kant and won’t accept this rag on Bush. Would you rather expand your moral judgment on these two men?
Clinton screwed the intern.
Bush sent 432 Americans, 53 British, 17 Italians and one Polish, to death in the Iraq war as of November 25, 2003 (CNN.com). Also remember that over 10,000 Iraqis died by last July and tens of thousands more humans have lost their limbs or been injured.
Clinton apologized and created a national surplus.
Bush insists that we continue the war and has created record breaking deficits.
