Well, I guess if you want an example of blind Patriotism being an enemy of humanity we just have to look at the aftermath of September 11, 2001. He appointed Tom Ridge Director of Homeland Security without getting the approval of the house and senate. He convinced a majority of the populace that sacrificing some of are freedoms was the right thing to do thus the Patriot Act was born. He convinced most Americans that Iraq was are true enemy and Osama Bin Laden (who murdered 3000 Americans on Sept. 11) did not matter. We went to war with Iraq even though they were meeting every one of the U.N. guidelines for disarmament. People believed the French were assholes because they were against the war and decided to boycott anything that had the word French. So despite this president pissing on checks and balances, ignoring Osama Bin Laden, going to war with a country that had nothing to do with September 11 and pissing off other countries in the process this man had an 80% approval rating. Bush even got re-elected. What does that say about us as a country? Feel free to debate this if you want to.
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
