3. This is why Bushco created the War on Terrorism
They saw that the WOD was becoming more and more unacceptable to US citizens, most of whom had at least dabbled in their younger days, and didn't die of overdose or reefer madness. Thus they were less and less willing to watch their civil liberties disappear over such a trivial issue. Bushco saw the writing on the wall and realized that they needed another noun to make war on, and came up with Terror.

Now, with the War on Terror up and running, if the WOD peters out due to a sudden influx of common sense, it won't matter. Bushco can continue to strip us of our civil rights and rip up the Constitution, but now it will all be in the name of the WOT, rather than the failing concept of the WOD.
