Fairy Tales and Horror Stories
A Long Day’s Journey Into Night
For over thirty years right-wing extremists have attacked the American psyche with fictional propaganda based on fear and hate. They have been enormously successful in their appeals to the basest instincts and reactions of human nature. They have succeeded in reducing our society to its lowest depths. They have failed to lead and inspire us to the higher of levels of human accomplishment that all peoples should strive for. This will be their legacy after the light of truth finally breaks free from the chains of lies and deceit forged by the likes of George Bush, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, et al.
That day of liberation is now dawning. Their temple of delusion can no longer be supported by a quicksand foundation of untruths and falsehoods. It is collapsing before our very eyes. The one-time solidarity of the corrupt elite of the GOP is falling apart faster than a seeding dandelion in hurricane. The back-biting and infighting is reminiscent of the Tyrone family and its disintegration in Eugene O’Neill’s, 'Long Day’s Journey Into Night'. If it were not for the fact that this deterioration signified a triumph for truth and democracy it would be almost unbearable to watch.
It is only going to get worse (or better depending on your perspective) when Congress reconvenes after the first of the year. Battles for leadership will be fought in both houses. Each member up for reelection will be scrambling to put as much distance as possible between himself/herself and the zealots of the administration who have placed the country in such a precarious position. Upcoming legal proceedings and investigations will only add fuel to the flames.
As I have said before the extremists will react in the only way they know how, more of the same. They will tell more and bigger lies. They will become much more dangerous as they increase their dependence on instilling fear. They will fail if and I stress if, the people, the media, and the opposition party will stay the course of truth and not the course of destruction that Bush and company want us to follow.
The Bush Credo - No Sacrifice Is Too Great For Others To Make.
