Harsh Liberty


Our shrub has an interesting way of phrasing things:



I can think of no better way to work toward freedom than to strategize with leaders from around the world who are willing to take the harsh steps necessary to spread liberty.

If Iraq is an example of the "harsh steps", maybe we should rethink the whole "spreading liberty" thing.

We need a Bushspeak dictionary to make sense of this, but what he said is perfectly intelligible.

Bushspeak "liberty" is fascism.

Simple.

Bushspeak "freedom" is subjugation, of course. And he's speaking to his base, who understand this and agree.

Ah yes, spreading democracy like manure over countries that don't want it.

I don't believe the Founding Fathers felt that we had to proselytize our way of life to other countries. Freedom is something you have to win for yourself, and to want for yourself, enough to fight for it. It isn't our job to go into other countries and "give" them freedom. That's what Hitler probably thought he was doing...
