Of the people, by the people, for the people.

Great words, written and spoken by a great man, who happened also to be a Republican.

It seems that our current Vice President, also a Republican, has forgotten those words, and their meaning. This stupid, endless war is destroying our economy. Most of the people were against it from the start (myself included), and history has shown that the reasons and justifications for entering it were lies and falsehoods… or if you want to be generous and forgiving, incorrect assumptions and wishful thinking.

“We will be greeted as liberators”

“There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction.”

“The war will finance itself through the sale of oil.”

Of course this is also the man who after having been voted in on the promise of “bringing dignity back to the executive branch” told a colleague on the Senate floor to “Go fuck yourself.”
