    Just for the heck of it -- and because I think they're apropos the current administration -- I tried Googling some references to Bush and "1984".

    Look what I came up with: 1 2 3 4 5a 5b 5c 6 7

    And since I don't want to spam, I'll just tell you that Googling "bush orwell" produces some interesting results in terms of shirts/bumper stickers/etc. for sale. You know...just in case. :(

    I believe that quote is from a Propaghandi song.

    "War Is Peace, Slavery Is Freedom, May All Your Interventions Be Humanitarian"

    Four more years of War is Peace, Ignorance is Stenght and Slavery is Freedom.
    Four more. May all your interventions be "Humanitarian".
    Four more years of pay-to-play politics, power and influence.
    Four more years of legalized bribery and served corporate interests.

    Vote for tweedle-dum or tweedle-dee
    And a framework of debate narrowed for you courtesy
    Of the ultra-rich and a media that filters
    But any voice that challenges their power
    (like Nader bounced in Boston by state-troppers
    Cos he don't speak for oil-tycoons and bankers, oh yeah
    Whose pursuit of happiness and liberty
    Demands a rhetoric of fear to be
    The litmus test for viable heirs to
    The phony drug-wars, the trumped-up rogue-states, the permance of a war-economy).

    I feel less hopeful and less human
    As I'm reduced to nothing more than
    Cheering on embassy bombings
    As the liars pave their way through

    Four more years of War is Peace, Ignorance is Stenght and Slavery is Freedom.
    Four more. May all your interventions be "Humanitarian".
    Four more years of pay-to-play politics, power and influence.
    Four more years of legalized bribery and served corporate interests.

    Scary how true it all is. Many things have gone far southward in the past four years. :(

    This is what is turning a lot of people off of the Republican party as they lean further toward the far right of the conservative spectrum. "If you aren't with us, you are against us". Scary thing, that. All the liberals do is call you stupid or a racist. They rarely call you un-American or un-patriotic just because you believe differently. Apparently it's ok to criticize the administration if the people in charge are Democrats. But if they're Republicans, and you speak out against them, you are a commie/pinko/Frenchy/terrorist-loving/anti-American.

    The Founding Fathers specifically set it up so that you can love this country and hate the government. People keep forget that when they call you a traitor for hating a government that is ruining a country I love. Just like I am against the troops because I want to bring them home instead of getting them killed in a war against the wrong people. :rolleyes:
