BUSH SHOWS HIS TRUE COLORS! by Jard DeVille|
If you voted for George Bush in the recent election, you should stop complaining about the national budget crunch and the planned destruction of public education, Social Security, Medicare and Veteran Affairs. Ignore the wounding and death of so many service men and women and the looming war between civilizations that shall recruit a million more terrorists who hate the way our government arms tyrants to dominate a billion miserable, poverty stricken people. After all, you got precisely what George Bush promised -- you got what you signed on for. You helped create a powerful movement away from our beloved Republic toward a ruthless American Empire ruled by a handful of powerful neo fascist aristocrats, neo con politicians and neo-zealot preachers who came together in a coup against the people of the United States. We now see multitudes of persons falling out of the middle class; battered by subsistence wages, under financed schools, homelessness, poor medical care, a horrendous national debt and vanishing retirement plans. There shall be bloodshed for the next half century as much of the world bands against us. In the words of former Fed Chairman Paul Volker, “We face a looming financial, political and social disaster that is tied directly to the Bush tax cuts and the expenses of a war fought for totally irresponsible reasons.”
Bush’s modus operandi in serving his robber baron supporters, is to pull government out of the business of serving everyone except those with the clout to demand more and more from their reactionary politicians and fundamental preachers. After all, real human services require taxes that powerful manipulators don’t want to pay at all. Since taxes are the price we pay for civilization, they evidently believe that the benefits of civilized living are greatly overrated. This is what Bush had in mind when he quipped that a dictatorship wasn’t such a bad idea -- providing he was the dictator. One doesn’t have to be a Freudian analyst to recognize that many a jest conceals the truth as a means of maintaining deniability. One Bush scheme includes propagandizing naïve Americans into believing that our children are dying in Afghanistan and Iraq to extend the blessings of freedom there. Actually, to the reactionaries now in power, democracy has become a quaint, much overrated concept from the rural past. Freedom has already been overwhelmed by a tsunami of campaign money that leaves the people unable to control their politicians. And, with the intrusive presence of Homeland Security reaching down into every neighborhood, with someone like Roberto Gonzales the Attorney General, do you really believe that right wing neo fascists are ever going to disband such a powerful command and control system? Not in our lifetimes, even if terrorism vanished tomorrow. No one relinquishes power willingly -- least of all the politicians and preachers who combine forces to gain control over society.
Actually, George Bush’s concept of freedom is to foist unrestricted Capitalism and Consumerism on developing societies to further enrich the financial aristocracy. It has nothing to do with Jeffersonian self-governance. It simply cannot; not with so much money being spent by vested groups and so many politicians eager to muzzle down into the trough. His view of democracy has little or nothing to do with serving society’s people. Unless, of course, they went to Harvard or Yale. When Bush claims to love America and to support the American people, he thinks of America as being the financial aristocracy with whom his family had golfed for generations. He is part of the group that at a Texas Republican Convention stood and chanted for fifteen minutes, “We are the real Americans, we are the real Christians.“ They received a standing ovation. The rest of society are see by the entire Bush family as servants and as flunkeys who are never of any significance. When Bush was first running for political office, he asked a consultant to brief him on how to win over poor people. He said, “I have no experience with them -- I have never known a poor person in my life.” Of course, the idea of exporting democracy to Iraq and Iran came late from the Bush White House. It wasn’t even a whisper until the scams about weapons of mass destruction and the cooperation of Hussein and bin Laudin as terrorists collapsed completely. Only then did the president’s staff work around the clock trying desperately to find something with which they could convince the naïve American masses was worth sacrificing their sons and daughters for. Obviously, with the great propaganda machine available to the Bush people now, even the parents of dead and wounded kids are persuaded that their children were somehow serving a noble American cause when they were actually being wasted by cynical abusers who saw an opportunity to project American power into the region with all the oil reserves. Of course, the vast majority of grieving parents could not bear the horror of believing that a son or daughter was maimed or died for the greater profit of Texaco or British Petroleum. Such a thought must be repressed, has to be adjusted in order to ease the pain, especially when the Commander In Chief praises their sacrifices as a noble duty to God and country rather than to benefit the robber barons for whom Bush is their spokesman.
If you support George Bush, knowing what is going on the Middle East, after learning that the Pentagon is projecting the occupation for five to ten more years, with Iran the next attack on Bush’s drawing board, and more casualties occurring regularly, stop pretending to care. Forget the twenty year old boys with ghastly head wounds I was with yesterday at the Veteran’s Affairs Hospital. Bush has made it easy to forget them -- he won’t even let anyone grieve over their caskets. Out of sight really is out of mind for people who perceive our boys and girls as a resource -- while Bush is orchestrating yet another cut in the V A budget. If you like what Bush is doing to America and its growing number of peasants whose children can only find work by taking the King‘s shilling, you are either part of the problem or so naïve you cannot find your way through the thickets of propaganda used to trick you into abandoning the Republic, into sacrificing the lives of many Americans and Iraqis alike. You really deserve him as your tyrant.
