02:58 pm - Poll: Civil Liberty vs. "Homeland Security"
Poll #105363 Are you worried about the Bush administration, and what it's doing to decrease civil liberties?

Are you worried about the Bush administration, and what it's doing to decrease civil liberties?

Not a bit. I trust George Dubya, his cabinet, AND his successors implicitly!
I vaguely wish he was a little more sensitive to civil liberty issues, but I can't really believe that any elected American government will ever oppress me, so it's no big deal.
Well, if all this keeps going on, eventually we might have a problem. But honestly, this isn't a near-term problem.
I have some real concerns about the blatant disregard for civil liberty the Bush administration shows, but I think they have honorable intentions.
I believe that the Bush administration is making a deliberate power grab, but I don't think it's an immediate problem.
The Bush administration is seizing the reins between its teeth, and I am immediately concerned, but I don't think the real effects will be felt for some years.
Dubya is occupying the Oval Office like a red-handed usurper sitting astride a throne, and I frankly fear his immediate ambition as much as that of his successors.

To be perfectly frank every administration has been gradually eroding rights thanks to the War On Some Drugs, so I can't be bothered any more by this (read: extremely bothered) than that.

It's not that I haven't been extremely bothered by the gradual erosion of rights from previous administrations, and the general tendency of the American public to want everybody to do everything for them, but jesus christ man - now it's like the HIV has turned into full-blown AIDS, if you'll pardon the simile. =\

a better analogy is that W. is like Reagan and Johnson and Bush Sr. fucking on cocaine.

I used that at work today, actually.
