Anti-American Conspirators

Filed under: General — Xero @ 8:42 pm

What could be better then an ignorant patriot then an ignoramus of the exact opposite? The ignorant anti-american conspirator. You know the people, they say they hate bush but only defend it with unproven facts and allegations. You know who you are, the people who hate bush just because it seems like the cool thing to do, instead of hating him for the actual things he has done.

As if the things he has done aren’t bad enough for you, so you have to make up some more and make the situation sound like it’s about a thousand times worse then it actually is. Yes, bush is taking away civil rights, yes he’s passed bad laws, yes he continued a war on iraq. Can you prove he did it just for the oil though?

People seem to overestimate the role of the president and also his motives. Can you honestly believe he’d invade a country just because there was oil there? Do you really think just because he’s been a fan of oil that he’d go to that length? Let’s do the proverbial put “your self in their shoes.” Some rich governor gets into the office through a damn close election which the true outcome never probably would have been determined to begin with, then soon after some muslim fundamentalists crash planes into some buildings.

Did you expect him to sit around asking for an apology? No, of course not, but now he has something that he can use to get some laws passed that he claimed he would in his election campaign. It sure made it a lot easier for him, and if you would really paranoid, you could even say he plotted it on purpose. Let’s not even go there, at that point reality is completely disregarded. So anyway, he slaps in some anti-drug propaganda with the new war on terror propaganda to make the message easier to distribute that bush doesn’t like either of the two items.

Of course the message is completely ineffective so later newer propaganda is made which is pretty much just as ineffective. Guilt trippy messages that are supposed to make parents feel bad and make kids think they should expose every detail of their life to their parents just so you can get their moral approval. Not a very good system for promoting thought-independence, but a typical conservative christian perspective on the issue.

You can’t really expect bush to be something he isn’t, and to me he’s basically some conservative christian who thinks he’s doing the right thing, the same way that the muslim fundamentalists think they’re doing the right thing. It’s all perspective but don’t stretch it too far, you’ll be the one lost from reality before you know it.

Now here comes the fun part, Iraq, a country we gave tons of weapons to, including biological ones. We say get rid of them and they don’t, or so they say. At this point, it’s pretty hard to tell but even so it still doesn’t prove he did it just for oil. Against protest (like every war) we go after them and catch the leader guy, Saddam Hussein, which at this point probably doesn’t mean a damn thing anymore. It’s the kind of thing that makes everyone think “hey we’ve won” but in reality doesn’t mean much.

On the other side of the story you get the people questioning all his motives with paranoid conspiracy sounding stuff. Yes, he did it for the oil! That’s way too easy to say though, it’s laughable. Where’s the proof? Don’t you think someone would notice him shipping out tons of barrels of oil? What do you think they’re going to do it in stealth cargo carriers? I don’t think so. Do you think other countries would allow bush to take iraq’s oil so easily? I don’t think so.

People tell me all the time they can prove it but never do. Sure, it’s a possibility, and one that could seem likely due to the fact that bush likes oil, but you’d be completely forgetting how the president doesn’t have that much control, and how bad that’d make us look, considering it’d be pretty much impossible to do undetected. I doubt bush would even be in office long enough for any oil transporting plan to come into effect even if he does get reelected.

There’s also the people who hate him and don’t even have a reason why, they just hate him to be cool I suppose. I don’t have to go into that subject very much because I think we all know those kind of people and they’d probably jump off a bridge if you told them it was cool.

I’m all open to the possibility that he is doing it for the oil but right now the proof for it seems to be just as good as the proof that there’s a higher power. There is none, other then what the supporters tell you. Self-defined proof is delusion in my book.
