Hitler and Bush in the same sentence? Is it possible? Many people didnt take Hitler
or Bush seriously at the start. They have both been described as having a charismatic
personality. Hitler and Bush were both poor students. Both men thought they were doing the
Lords work and promised to get rid of their countrys "enemies."
Hitler and Bush made use of peoples fears and insecurities. Both men used
"them/us" thinking in their speeches. Both show that style mattered more than
substance. Flags, banners, zealous patriotism, heart-warming speeches were used by both
men, along with the chanting of simple slogans. Both men have secret government policies
and a military agenda. Both men support Big Business. (War is only good for corporations
and for increasing the budget of the Defense Department.) Both men came to power in a
controversial manner: Hitler with the Reichstag fire, Bu$h with the Florida vote
controversy. Both men demanded blind loyalty and obedience. They both declared war on one
country after another. Bu$h, on June 1st, at West Point, announced that the U.S. will
strike first at our enemies (which now numbers sixty, or a third of the world.)
Last week, Bu$h gave the FBI new surveillance guidelines
that allows the FBI to monitor all Internet sites, libraries, churches and political
organizations. Its time for us to read George Orwells "1984."
A government that puts business above people is called
fascism. Government and the media should be serving the people--not the
military-industrial complex that General Eisenhower warned us about. If we dont
start putting citizens before corporations, we will inevitably be kept in war and have a
century of real turmoil (space weaponization, problems in Peru, Colombia and the
Philippines, the list is endless).
Bu$h wont need a war tax, hell just keep
increasing the Defense budget and endanger Social Security, Medicare and other Federal
programs. Were already back to deficit spending! (A predicted 10-year surplus
shrank by $4 trillion since last year.)
Use the Internet for your news. If Hitler had Fox
News wed all be speaking German. Corporate interests control the radio. We must all
become informed by using the Internet, local library or bookstore. Register to vote and
Share this page with friends and relatives. Its okay
to question authority, were not a nation of sheep. Inform your elected officials
of your views. A democracy becomes something else when dissent isnt allowed.
Well-informed, critical, and open discussions are essential to a free society. Terrorists
cant destroy our democracy--but we can, simply by surrendering it, by keeping our
mouths shut while it is dismantled by the authorities.
