The Beloved Bush

I was thinking-- and I really don't understand why conservatives love George W. Bush so much and I don't understand why they think he is doing such a wonderful job as president.

A great number of people who voted for George W. Bush did so because of his position on "moral issues". I think it is safe to say that the major moral issue that caused people to vote for GW is his views against abortion. So if conservatives are so happy with Bush** then wouldn't you expect that Bush would have done something about the issues that got him elected?

Bush is probably the most conservative, god-fearing, anti-abortion presidents we've had in modern day and conservatives have control of both the house and the senate-- yet abortion is still legal. In fact, I have heard no serious talks from him about criminalizing abortion (though he has spent a good deal of time trying to pass a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage). If this die-hard christian and uber-conservative congress haven't even made a serious attempt at making abortion illegal... shouldn't people be mad that nothing has been done about the major reason they voted for him? But I see no anger-- most of the conservatives are just fine with the way he's doing his job.

For those of you who are morally against same-sex marriage and abortion-- I think you should ask yourself a serious question-- Which is a more important moral issue-- same-sex marriage or abortion? The president has spent a great deal more time trying to ban gay marriage than he has trying to ban abortion-- does this parallel your beliefs? I doubt it.

And honestly-- if you care so much about moral issues-- shouldn't you be upset that we were unjustified in going to war and that thousands of people have died because of the Bush administration's screwup? Or do your morals not stretch all the way across the ocean?

** People were happy enough with Bush to vote him the 6th greatest American in history on TLC's "Greatest American"-- this show was hilarious... it may be one of America's "Worst Shows" ever-- Who do you think should be the greatest American? George Washington? Martin Luther King Jr.? Abraham Lincoln?-- Who actually won? Ronald Reagan...... how awful is that?
Other ridiculous people in the top 20: Bill Clinton #7, Oprah #9, Billy Graham #11 and Bill Gates #18--- These people are clearly greater Americans than Rosa Parks...?

The United States was set into a downward spiral the moment we lost State's Rights. Since then the Federal politicians have preyed heavily on an apathetic public to force THEIR will based on THEIR morals.

As a result, our president has an ability called "Executive Order" which breaks the constitutionally set checks and balances between our 3 government branches, that has eventually caused our current situation as now we are now in an unconstitutional drug war on the home front, and far too many warlike conflicts with many contries abroad. Our Foreign policy is now Premptively strike nations that we think may do something to harm the USA.
Ever see the movie Minority Report? Perfect example of how shitty our current foreign policy is.

There are many other issues the loss of states rights has tumbled into. Taxes, and State Laws / power to name a couple.

There should be not a single law on the books that is based on morality. One mans morals are not the same as anothers. Laws should be based on Rights "God Given" and from our Bill of Rights. People should be free. But then again we are free if the public would simply wake up and see it, they can change it.

Thro192: Thanks for serving our country... I'm glad you have a good head on your shoulders. I'm sorry our president sent you over there.

TJlaw: I agree. Apathy from the public-- as well as gullibility are a major source of the problems. It's hard because our strongest tool for holding politicians feet to the fire is the media-- and the media is now part of the problem. They aren't working for the people-- they are just working to promote the beliefs of the people in charge of their companies. So annoying.
