301. Inspired by Keith Olbermann's Special Comment tonight
about torture as used by the Bush administration, and the inevitable downfall of this regime because of decent, brave, and honest Americans, I wish to affirm once again:

I believe.

I believe that America is better and stronger than the criminals who have corrupted its institutions to impose fascist ideals where We the People better keep our mouths shut.

I believe that America, for all the faults and unresolved moral quandaries and shortcomings, is a virtuous ideal that the world needs, and that through this virtue, it will continue to spread the possibility of freedom from oppression and material poverty. Not through war, cynical double-talk, and corporate piracy disguised under the veneer of stolen slogans, but through generosity, example, and our ability to maintain our ideals even when we must repel parasitic ideologies that may gain temporary sway over our structures and institutions.

Thank you, Mr. Olbermann. Your courage, your eloquence, and the fact that you just plain give a damn about what America stands for is inspiring, and yet further evidence of the fact that we are right to believe.
