Perhaps liberals have bad memories

As dangerous and destructive and embarrassing as Bush is, I have had these feelings of fear and disgust before--during the presidencies (and at least they were, as far as I know, legitimate presidencies) of both Nixon and Reagan. Here's a news flash for those with short memories: Nixon spied on citizens. A lot. He also got away with it. Americans who supported the Vietnam war thought it was fine and dandy for him to spy on citizens. To this day, they buy the lies his administration told about Jane Fonda. Trashing people who do not support whatever crazy-ass war we are fighting is a tactic taken right out of the Nixon playbook.

Reagan, as I have noted many times, based his presidency on racism, misogyny, fear-mongering, imperialism, and an appeal to the poor, persecuted white male. He is now considered the "Greatest American."

There is not much room for liberalism--and no room at all for the progressive movement--in American government. Carter sold out the women's movement, Clinton sold out the gay rights movement. We do not ever have "friends" in the White House, but it is becoming more and more common for us to have enemies of the Constitution living there. There is no doubt in my mind that the current occupant stole two elections, but no one even talks about that.

Stealing elections is even worse than spying on citizens, if one has to make a distinction. Americans, as a whole, do not care. Steal the election, spy on the people next door, send soldiers to their deaths for Halliburton, teach children sexist, dangerous nonsense in the schools, poison the air and the water, let New Orleanians drown and then blame them for it.

If Americans cared, none of this would have happened.
