The Gruesome Truth Revealed in the Lie
"Any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so."
You see, here we have an obvious and uncontrovertable lie. Our dear leader told us that "a wiretap requires a court order." You see, he made that statement back when the New York Times was carrying his water.
This is what happens when people allow themselves to be terrorized. This is what happens when people become so pre-occupied with "security" that they (ironically) give away their security for the illusion of security. This is what happens when the media becomes a flag waving patriot. This is what happens when people stop questioning authority.
A gruesome truth is revealed in George W. Bush's latest lie-- we cannot trust our so-called leaders to serve our interests. Period. The more they try to hide themselves behind patriotic slogans, the more we should be questioning their motives and actions.
Why is this a "gruesome truth"? Because most people want to see their country and their government as something noble, something to be admired regardless of it's inherent nature. The truth is though-- our nation is a chaotic world of good and bad. It must be tended to. Like a gardener who tends to his garden with constant water, fertilizer, and attention, we must tend to our nation with constant inquisition, analysis, attention, and action. The gruesome truth is, like the gardener, we must get our hands dirty from time to time.
