Anybody else think Bush is leading us into fascism?

American arrogance and aggressiveness is fully unveiled. On January 20th the 2nd Bush told the world, "The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands." Translation: "Foreign nations beware. You will conform to our standards voluntarily or we will make you conform."

Far be it from me to think I would be quoting a Chinese newspaper, the People's Daily Online, in the wake of Bush's inaugural address, but here it is. "After the firework fades away Washington is still under a dark sky. The sole superpower sends a sense of inauspiciousness to the world when it's president is inaugurated under wartime security standards: America, where are you heading?"

The answer is simple. Sixty years ago we had thought we had stamped out the forces of fascism. But the worst imaginable sequelae has come to pass. As Pogo Possum told us fifty years ago, "We have met the enemy and they is us."
