- America is a democracy. Well, actually, we're a republic, but still, we do hold elections. And the American way is nice clean elections. Bush's idea of democracy is Florida 2000, Ohio 2004, or Iraq, 2005. http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/jul2005/iele_j26.shtml
- America opposes torture. We oppose it so much, we expressly forbid "cruel and unusual" punishment. We signed the Geneva accords which also bans it. Humans captured and held prisoner in the course of war are prisoners of war. Changing their title to "enemy combatants" only fools the idiots who haven't thought far enough ahead to reason that if we do it, it gives our enemies an excuse to do it, too. I'm sure that if they were allowed to see the pictures that would make Donald Rumsfeld blanche http://editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1000990590 they may see the evil our country has become. Perhaps that's why the Pentagon won't release them.
- America is free enterprise. Giving no-bid contract after no-bid contract to a company misusing funds and overcharging the taxpayer is not free enterprise, it's theivery.
- America is about justice. You know, like it says at the end of the pledge of allegiance "..with liberty and justice for all". What does it say about American justice when a potetially innocent man is executed in Texas, while a traitor to the American people stays in the White House. The CIA operation exposed by Mr. Rove was monitoring weapons of mass destruction around the world and now is unable to do so, endangering the American citizen. You would almost think that the Bush Administration wants the "terrorists" to attack http://politics.guardian.co.uk/iraq/comment/0,12956,1036687,00.html and you'd probably be right.
- America is a non-aggressor nation. We have never stood for conquest of any sovereign nation for the sole purpose of stealing their vital natural resources.
Today on the radio, it said some organization voted Canada the stupidest government in the world, but I don't remember Canada doctoring evidence to justify an illegal invasion. It never made it's token lackey stand before the whole world with a bunch of false documents (that the whole world outside these borders knew was fake). I'm sure the Prime Minister of Canada can pronounce nuclear. No, the only thing dumber than our government are the moronic flag waving unpatriots that support it still. Some people will never be unbrainwashed, right Judus?
