...so?


VP Dick Cheney doesn't care about Americans. So I wonder.. if we should disregard the over-whelming majority who disagree with his neocon masturbatory foreign policy, can we also disregard the lesser majority, slightly over half, who put him into the office of Vice-President in the first place and, say, move up the 2008 Presidential elections? Cheney would likely not favor that notion.

This was founded to be a country based on democratic principles, where what the people think and have to say matters. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, "...government of the people, by the people, for the people". It's disheartening that it has become a place where their concerns are casually dismissed by a figure such as the Vice-President as a mere "fluctuation" of a reactionary public. In actuality, the American people are long-standing in their disapproval of this war and the Administration that has mired us in it.

I see the mocking, dismissive smirk of VP Cheney, and I can't help but think of the thousands upon thousands of men and women that have been wounded, died, or wished they had, thanks to this Administration's careless hard-on for war.

The phrase "Vote Bush, Get Dick" has never been more tangible.
