In Seven Short Years
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 01:38 PM by spanone
The United States of America has:

invaded two nations
established that we torture our enemies
destroyed habeas corpus
allowed our government to spy on U.S. citizens
threatened war with Iran
politicized the military
ignored global climate change
seen the highest oil costs in history
given the majority of tax breaks to the rich
stunted stem cell research
seen the Vice President's chief of staff convicted of obstruction of justice
outed a CIA agent who was working to protect us against WMD for strictly political reasons

have at it....
