Because nothing resembling the outrage expressed by the tea baggers — not the repeated violation of Constitutional liberties, not the illegal acts openly flaunted by the Bush administration, not the donation of the American economy to the wealthy class by the Obama administration, not the impoverishment of the middle class — can get the American people off their sorry asses and into the streets or into the voting booths, I fear that at the very least the American people don't care about our traditional American values anymore. I have come to believe that at most the American people are OK with becoming stupid fascist bullies, the rabid corporatist dogs of eternal war that the world will have to put down before they can again know a semblance of peace. I cannot conclude otherwise, for over the time that I have attempted through my meager blogging efforts to awaken awareness of the problem in people, the nation has rapidly gone in the opposite direction. No amount of persuasion seems to affect the outcome, so I have to conclude that destroying the nation is what We, the People of the United States want. If we could destroy Vietnamese villages thinking we were saving them, could we not also think and do so regarding our own nation?
I guess it's better than admitting we were wrong about so many things, and winning means never having to say you're sorry.
