I think you're right, Tantrum. I don't like to believe it's true (Bush's true goals and intentionally manipulating people by planting fear into them, or stoking what was already there-- that's a fascist technique) because it sickens me and makes me so angry, but denial is pretty dangerous.
Is that what most Americans are in; denial? 40 some percent of us still think that Bush is doing a good job.
What do you think will happen after the next president is elected? Do you think Bush's wrath will continue? I know that Bush is continuing on with Reagan's wrath as far as domestic policy is concerned.
