Nothing to FEAR but FEAR itself. And Bush.

Perhaps I am cynical, or maybe it's that some of us are smart enough to see through the FUD that Washington is throwing at us.  Fear. FEAR!  We have nothing to fear but fear itself.  Bush is saying that if we don't throw $700 billion at the bad money, that things will get worse.  Why?  Uh, dunno.  

And could it be, just maybe, that McCain pulling out of the debate could be a lead in to postponing the November election?  After all, we are in a crisis.  Or so they tell us.  We need to postpone the election until things calm down.  Right? Do you think this could never happen? Well, the last few years, at least since 9/11, have brought us to the brink of the destruction of the Bill of Rights.  After all, anyone entering or leaving the US is subject to search and seizure without due cause.  Check Article 4 of the Bill of Rights.  Prisoners declared terrorists by the US government can and are being held without access to representation and without charges.  Check the fifth amendment to the Bill of Rights.  Never thought that could happen but it has.  Never thought Lehman Brothers could go under. Never thought about Morgan Stanley.  Never thought government insiders like Rove could just ignore subpenas.  You try doing that...
