God shed dis-grace on thee: Will that be our new national anthem?
By Meria Heller
Online Journal Contributing Writer
January 23, 2003´┐ŻAmerica is changing. In two short years we've lost a huge budget surplus and no one seems to know where it went. It's not in my pocket, is it in yours? We went from having a Constitution and Bill of Rights to the USA PATRIOT Act and the Homeland "In-Security" Act. War is now a common term and the target seems to change weekly. With a declaration of total lunacy an "axis of evil" was condemned by an un-elected pResident. A few months later those very same nations are acting according to accusation. My mother used to say, "If you're going to have the name, you might as well play the game." Obviously this is not just an American-Italian expression. America went from the illusion of a two party system to the reality that Corporatism rules and owns our government. It is no longer a government by, for and of the people. It is a fascistic regime under the rule of Corporations. The people and organizations that we pay to protect us haven't. They have capitulated to the dictums from the White House to continue throwing "fear" and lies of "terrorism" at the population. Fear is all about control.

****Good essay - worth the read*****
