Inside U.S.A.: Duped by Bush: the Persistent Vegetative State of America|

Gallup reports half of all Americans now believe what some of us believed years ago: Bush lied about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction. "This is the highest percentage that Gallup has found on this measure since the question was first asked in late May 2003," observed Gallup. "At that time, 31% said the administration deliberately misled Americans. This sentiment has gradually increased over time, to 39% in July 2003, 43% in January/February 2004, and 47% in October 2004."
Slowly, like a person emerging from a coma, around fifty percent of the American people are dimly realizing their president is a pathological liar. Most, however, have not gleaned the whole truth and nothing but the truth—Bush is not only a pathological liar, he is also a mean-spirited sociopath, a warmonger and former executioner (who gleefully mocked the condemned), and has contempt for most people, that is to say the vast majority of Americans who are not his "base," in other words the stinking rich plutocrats who believe they have the right to steal at gunpoint (or cruise missile or bunker buster point).
Even so, far too many American admire their wretched non-president (appointed and "elected" through well-documented fraud and monkey wrenching) and then of course there is that worrisome fifty percent who believe their president wouldn't lie and needlessly throw away their lives or the lives of their children in neocon-neolib wars, designed to be generational and highly profitable for the aforementioned "base."
"Last week Gallup reported that 53% now believe that the U.S. invasion of Iraq was '"not worth it.' But Frank Newport, editor in chief at Gallup, recalled today that although a majority of the public began to think the Vietnam war was a mistake in the summer of 1968, the United States did not pull out of Vietnam for more than five years, after thousands of more American lives were lost," Gallup continues.
And so it is.
Of course, it took millions of people filling the streets, mass civil disobedience, even the burning of draft offices and other acts of violent direct action against the government for Johnson and Nixon to get the message—millions of people did not like the idea of conscription slavery or killing people in faraway lands. Bush simply ignored the massive protests against his invasion of Iraq and wrote off millions of people as nothing but a "focus group." It does not matter if he lied to the American people—fifty percent remain unaware of his lies or simply don't care—and Bush will of course do it again and again, sort of like a pathological little Energizer Bunny marching off to war (or marching poor and patriotically deluded kids off to war, anyway).
Fifty percent of all Americans, according to Gallup, remain blissfully locked in a coma devoid of any moral boundaries.
"You let men in power assume power 'for the Little Man'. But you yourself remain silent. You give men in power or impotent people with evil intentions the power to represent you. Only too late do you realize that again and again you are being defrauded," wrote Wilhelm Reich before he was tortured and killed by the United States government.
