may beis the year when we finally come face to face with ourselves; finally just lay back and say it -- that we are really just a nation of 220290 million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
The tragedy of all this is that
George McGovern,John Kerry, for all his imprecise talk about new politics and "honesty in government," is one of the few men who've run for President of the United States who really understands what a fantastic monument to all the best instincts of the human race this country might have been, if we could have kept it out of the hands of greedy little hustlers like Richard NixonGeorge W. Bush.
McGovern made some stupid mistakesKerry espouses some wrong-headed opinions, but in context they seem almost frivolous compared to the things Richard NixonGeorge W. Bush does every day of his life, on purpose, as a matter of policy and a perfect expression of everything he stands for.
Jesus! Where will it end? How low do you have to stoop in this country to become President?
