54. I think Sept. 11 enabled them to do these things
without it, Bush would have been a one-termer and the Congress would not have had the justification to pass the Patriot Act (which is what the right had wanted for a long time). It served their purposes very well; even my boss (normally a liberal Dem- from a long line of liberal Texas Dems) pretty much supported Bush. That didn't last long, as it didn't for most liberals. But for the right, 9/11 became the excuse PNAC needed to start an illegal war.

Conservatives are the ones who hate us for our freedoms. They would be Vichy France if this were WWII- the enablers, the collaborator, while WE would be the Resistance.
