Editorial: People still find it hip, cool and trendy to be anti-government.

Despite the fact that he is now an elected President, people still continue to criticize President Bush. Maybe they weren’t there on Election Day, but I was there as a very slim majority of 56 percent of the people elected our President. In Bush’s mind, this has created what he is calling a mandate from the people.

It’s time for people to embrace our President. The Bush Administration is hated by the world in general, and that’s not all it has going for it. The administration that has driven up the National Debt in an attempt to stimulate the economy and has predicted the way in which we are hemorrhaging money from the gut wound that they have caused will be cut in half by 2008. Sure, they started a war, but thanks to our educational system, the war is in a place most people can’t find on a map anyway. The impending draft will be the perfect thing to teach a new generation the importance of public service. They are even considering opening up the border to create a new class of sub-citizens.
The tide is obviously turning. John Ashcroft, the old white guy who supported the Patriot Act, the denial of POW status to Guantanamo Bay detainees, and claimed the right to waive the anti-torture law and international treaties providing protections to prisoners of war has been replaced by Alberto Gonzales.
we do not have information on the quality of Gonzales’s singing voiceGonzales, is a 49 year old Latino who supports the Patriot Act, the denial of POW status to Guantanamo Bay detainees, and claims the right to waive the anti-torture law and international treaties providing protections to prisoners of war. Anyone who doesn’t like Gonzales is obviously a racist. While we do not have information on the quality of Gonzales’s singing voice, things are definitely moving in the right direction now.
Bush has opened up his arms and stated that his is willing to be the President for anyone who “shares his goals”. The time is now to forget about your beliefs and values. No need to be coy Roy, just jump on the Bush bus, and set yourself free.
