The government that we deserve

In my despair I fear that, if the pundits are correct and the American public re-elected George W. Bush based upon his moral vision for this country, then America has gotten the government that she deserves. Like the idiots who followed the false Aslan in C.S. Lewis's The Last Battle, the American people believe that they's elected a lion but instead have returned a jackass wearing a lion's skin to the Oval Office.

I am certain that carnage lies ahead and that the images that await will be too terrible to view, except in glimpses. And I fear that the America that emerges -- after the carnage -- will neither be recognizable nor to my liking.

Fortunately, though, life need not be a spectator sport. Those of us who believe that we deserve more than a president who lies to us, who uses the weapons of war for the sake of commerce, who is willing to sacrifice lives for oil, have a great deal of work ahead for us these next four years. It may take us a few days to recover from the sucker punch that has knocked us off our feet, but we must continue to fight the good fight. We owe it to the countless men and women who gave their life's efforts and their lives establishing and preserving the freedoms Geroge W. Bush is hell bent on destroying.

As one blogger friend said:

"Don't gnash your teeth. Don't wring your hands. We’ve got a war to stop."

We all have a lot of work to do.

Yes, but first, I'll have to pull my head out of the oven.

I love reading the Holier than thou posts concerning GW. This really cracks me up... Of course I also love the hypocrisy of a woodworker who doesn't realize that the largest clear cutter in both South America and Africa are both run by democrats and or their supporters. Who doesn't get it now.... sheesh

I said kill the fly, not, put your head in the oven.
P.S. You keep chanting a name, and I think you're his cheerleader and my attention span isn't that great and when I go to vote, that's all I remember. My intentions are good. But what do I know. I'm disabled.
P.S.S. How do you spell revolution? Does it begin with USA, USA, USA? Or does it begin with the groundskeepers. (They made a mess of that park you know.)
S.P. Sorry about the HATE factor. Yawn. Shall we talk about my ex-husband? Didn't think so. Show me a little hope here people. Hope? You spell it, tanned Alabaman and an Irish Catholic Priest. Are priests allowed to run for government? They have rules that I am beginning to fear.
S.P.P. And if you can't give me hope, and you can't give me fun, then put the woodcutter on. He sounded like he could enlighten me on the varieties of wood types there are in different parts of the world.
Tell Bob to take a chill pill. Been there. Nothing there but sand and children and the war has been going on for a while Robert. You have a country to inspire - and instead you've been going on about grief and guilt and despair. Put a sock in it. You burned the place to the ground. Now fix it. Find an angry ex-employee of the government and get them to run. One at a time. There are probably dozens who want to. And I bet they have good stories too. I have one, about a fat man who held up a wall to lead a pile of screaming people through and then the walls fell down and he lingered and died. But I'm fucking proud of him. But on the high seas, (where I was), his nurse whispered his story. And I didn't understand why she whispered it. But now I do. And yeah, you sound disgruntled, so you might have heard the story too. Why don't you go run for an office Bob. I don't care if it's dogcatcher. And if you get it, keep it safe for Americans like you and me. You can't tell the good guys from the bad guys by their hues anymore, so get to know them by name, and have them over for barbeque on Friday. It's security at home we need, and it starts with you.
