Rove driven Bush propaganda has rushed the US into completely unnecessary war and first amendment busting torture tactics all under the psychological manipulation of fear. The fear card is once again being played on what one might think would be a more suspecting public. But apparently no such luck.
More analysis may help explain why the American public keeps falling for the same old terror trick. 9-11 made every reasonable person afraid. And if the solution was sending other people's kids to die in Iraq, maybe it wasn't such a bad idea. The torture tactic kind of worked the same way. Since most Americans find it hard to believe that they will ever need their constitutional rights, allowing people from other countries to be tortured seemed pretty ok.
Now terror Rove style holds hostage the most sacred entity in the American soul...money. Be afraid, be very afraid! If you do not give almost and surely in the end it will exceed a trillion , dollars to bail out billionaires the stock market will piss away your meager investments. Fear wins again! Mission Accomplished!
