Reality can come to Middle America

Letters such as the one below are being printed in small town newspapers across America. The particular paper and area below is GOP country!
"Fahrenheit 9-11" just came outside the "beltway" of Washington, DC. Granted the theaters want to make that money, BUT this means thousands of citizens will be SEEING what some have seen for years.
I am still concerned just how many more than 900 dead Americans in Iraqi alone will stir the American public to greater heights. Non-American deaths are of little concern to most of these people. When the general public learns it can be empowered to care about all 6 billion on this planet progress will begin.

Letters to the Editor
The following is the way I see it:
My dictionary defines terrorism as: The use of terrorizing methods. State of fear and submission so produced. A method of resisting a government or of governing.
Our president has resisted the legitimate government of Iraq. He has produced a state of fear in the Iraqi populace. He has accomplished these atrocities by using terrorizing force. To me this is terrorism.
How can we as a nation keep supporting a president who has proven totally inept in just about everything he has attempted?
We don’t know what could have been, what would have been, but surely we can surmise what should have been. I don’t really know where we would be today had the last election not been decided by the courts, but I’m confident that many, many who are no longer with us would still be enjoying life, many arms and legs would still be attached to their rightful places, many eyes would still be seeing.
Mr. Bush, in my opinion, is the epitome of the Peter Principle. He has surely been elevated to this level of incompetence.
A single choice can build destinies--or destroy them. Mr. Bush’s choice has destroyed a multitude of destinies. If not for his decisions thousands and thousands of people would still be alive and well. We would not be hearing of beheadings and torture.
Mr. Bush has surely challenged the devil and we will be paying for many years in many ways. He has placed America on a level reserved for terrorist nations.
I am ashamed of where this president has taken us. He has obviously never heard of diplomacy. I’ve personally seen nothing to smile about during this man’s tenure as president of our great nation. What a farce!
