Bush is in the shitter

Posted: November 16, 2005 in General


I’m happy and sad that Bush’s approval rating is in the shitter. I’m happy because I’m glad to see more and more people share my thoughts (I knew I was right). I’m sad because it’s a case of closing the barn door after the horse has escaped. Bush has set certain things in motion that we need to ride out (at least until the next election).

I’m sad because I didn’t want to speak my mind when we attacked Afghanistan and more importantly Iraq. I’m sad that more Americans didn’t question what we were doing, and the future that the US was building. I’m sad that the government has done more damage to civil rights and our freedoms than Bin Laden did. I’m sad that we’ve accepted things like “Homeland Security” and the laws that surround it.

Do I hate terrorists? Of course. Do I want to protect our country? Hell yes. Do I want to do whatever we can to make sure something like 9/11 never happens again? Within reason, yes. Was Sadam a bad guy? Of course. Do I want the US to roll into a country and force democracy on them? Hell no.

We need to keep our hands to ourselves. I’m happy that my fellow countrymen are finally seeing the light that we aren’t on the right path, and that staying the path Isn’t doing our country any favors. I’m sad that the damage has already been done and there is a lot of pain and suffering yet to endure (both here and abroad).
