Whereas the Democratic Convention kept a very positive tone the Republicans went entirely negative very early on in the convention. The Democrats almost never mentioned the President by name and often spoke about the promise of the future. The did not take liberties with the facts and they spoke of a grand future. Barrack Obama, the superstar Democratic candidate for Senate from Illinois, in particular delivered a stunningly positive speach. The Republicans, on the other hand, were full of doom and gloom. Constantly speaking of how September 11th had changed the world forever, and things could never return to normal.
Pardon me, but I thought the goal of the war on terror was to return things to normal?
Even John McCain, normally a liberl Republican, joined the fray speaking of a "bright September morning...destroyed by savage atrocity." Rudy Gulliani, wives of 9-11 victims and even Democrat Zell Miller all spoke about the same thing. 9-11 has left an indelible mark on American society, but only because politicians and the media are so desperate to force that mark onto ever single American for their own selfish reasons. As long as we listen to their propoganda we play by their rules. Less than 3,000 people died on 9-11, yet we have spent the last three years having the memories of that day rammed down our throats every single day by a government that does very little to prevent it from happening again. At the same time, this self same government claims they are protecting Americans while running around making the world more dangerous by starting meaningless wars.
Be afraid. Be very afriad.
