Thread Name: BS: Modest Proposal to end the civil war
Subject: RE: BS: Modest Proposal to end the civil war
Well, musicmic, I love the US. I love lots and lots of its people. I love the mountain I live on and the house and gardens I've built. I balence my criticism with a community activism in trying to m ake my community better and rub elbows with Dems, Repubs, Green and Independents in trying to improve the overall quality of life of my neighbors.

But with that siad, like Deda, I am both angered at the current administration's domestic and foriegn policies and afraid that thre current administration has so severely corrupted democracy that the country that love is going to end up in a civil/class war and tactics that are being used by Palestinians today will become common place and assasinations will be come common place and martial law will replace democracy... Democracy, IMO, in the US is terminally ill and the current administartion is franticly removing life support tubes and gizmos...

But, hey, I'll keep doing what I'm doing as long as I have any hope but I must admit that since the Election of 2000 when the Republicans so clearly stole the election (and I'm no Dem, either, BTW) and the subsequent thuggery and fascism, I have given in to the realities that I may not get to live out my days in my community or the US... And I've lived thru a lot of crappy presidents and crappy policies... There's something disticntly different now... And it has *nothing* to do with 9/11, thank you.
