He's the Decider?
"The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."

"The people have always some champion whom they set over them and nurse into greatness...This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector."

George Bush is always deciding things, isn't he? He takes great pride in making decisions. He's got the final say, By God, and he isn't afraid of using it!

His recent defense of Rumsfeld makes me hear such a pompous and vindictive reply to criticism sends shivers of fear and anger down my spine. Do we not see how he is behaving as a dictator, or a king? What's next--lopping off of heads from the shoulders of those who ask questions?

I wish Plato were here to bring about Bush's demise. Plato wouldn't stand for this--nay! Plato would speak loudly with no tremors in his voice about the true duty of a leader. A leader should never relish his ability to be 'The Decider'. A leader should ponder all criticism, and hear it for what it is, instead of jumping on the defensive. By reading Plato's quotes, we know the Dubya's of the world have long been a threat, and Plato saw through their 'goodwill' for what it was--another action motivated by greed and contempt for common mankind.

I heard the other day that 48% of Americans think Bush is doing a really bad job. Another 27% think he could 'do better'. By my count, the majority of Americans want him gone. Out. Done. Fini.

But as Grand-PooBah Fritz says, "The ticket is NOT to impeach Bush. The ticket is to impeach Cheney, and then Bush!"

I wonder when Americans will realize that WE are the deciders, come to our senses, drop our fears, and tell this man where he and his cabinet can go. I wonder why Americans have forgotten about our civic duty--our duty to overthrow merciless 'leaders' and demand better justice. I wonder if Americans have lost their spines entirely.

Start asking questions. Write to your representatives. Tell them who the true 'decider' is. Enough letters sent, enough phone calls fielded, enough anger in the voices of citizens, and someone will start listening.

    What I Live By:
    We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, unremembered gate When the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning; At the source of the longest river The voice of the hidden waterfall And the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea. Quick now, here, now, always— A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) And all shall be well and All manner of thing shall be well When the tongues of flame are in-folded Into the crowned knot of fire And the fire and the rose are one. -T.S. Eliot "Little Gidding"
