As we know part of the bush campaign has hinged on keeping people in fear. But their latest tactic was the most direct and blatant example of that.
Cheney told Republican supporters at a town hall meeting in Des Moines that they needed to make "the right choice" in the November election.

"If we make the wrong choice, then the danger is that we'll get hit again -- that we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States," Cheney said

WTF!?!?

Essentially he just told the American people "Vote for Bush or die".

Wow.

Let's open up some concentration camps for all of the people that don't support Bush.

Then we can have a barbeque Hitler style.

This is another example of elected officials attempting to gain or consolidate power at the expense of the people by playing on our fears. The masses believe this sort of tripe because they can't (or won't) think for themselves.

Wake the fuck up, America! Think for yourselves. Think outside the two-party system.

I say we start a write-in campaign to elect Saint Broken. Porn for all!

I'm afraid that's where it's headed. Then again he was "Sent by God".

This is a fucking far cry from the days of "All we have to fear is fear itself". What ever happened to instilling hope in the American people, and making them proud of their freedoms, not scaring them into giving them up for illusions of security? I'd rather be killed tomorrow as a free man than to lock myself in a secure box of fear for the rest of my life. Terrorism is about exactly that: Terror. The point is to make us afraid, and by being afraid we are essentially letting the "terrorists" win. The Bush administration has done more to scare Americans at this point than the so called terrorists ever did.

Thank You.

I'm just glad I can see through his BS or I might have already Duct taped my windows and bought water. Maybe I'd have go so far as to move on to a native American reservation and share in their Sovereignty (whatever that is).

Great. Now we're being run by terrorists.

Nah, wtf? Fuck that. I may live in a country run by a monkey (who obviously isn't half as smart as Hitler was) but I'm not allowing fear to run me.

I'll be one of the few souls in this country who still has hope.

Hope that somewhere, somehow, a powerful leader is actually acting responsibly, and may possibly come save us from the attack of the idiotic monkey men in suits.

It's funny how the outcasts of society actually know what the fuck is going on. Let's get some of Bush's advisors signed up with wtf.com. Then they can get their asses flamed, and get an idea of how they're fuckin up our government. Two birds with one stone.

That's why we're the outcasts. Power to the People!

On another note, even peaceful protesters at political rallies (who oppose Bush, btw) are being arrested and detained by the FBI and Secret Service. It's a really shameful display of power run amok; it's a sad day for democracy when we see that sort of shit happen. Maintain hope and vote your conscience.

I already told Skorch this, but he should have killed himself a long time ago because it doesn't look like we'll be having "freedom" in the future.
If we took a vote right now on WTF, it would be 90%-5% (Only because there are dumbasses who wont vote at all) in favor of Kerry or NOT BUSH. But I guess the "real world" doesn't see it that way and would rather sit pretty and poor among their uneducated children and not have gay people or abortions than prosper in the freedom nation of America and live with "corrupt people."
I don't know, it was a hard choice for me, but I'd rather live a comfortable life and put my children through college and help them through life by making sure they are brought up with the morals I teach them, not what President Bush teaches them as being "sinful."

Oh no, y'all won't be gettin rid of me that easy, and I sure ain't going to be taking the easy road out of this mess. No, while I'd rather die a free man than live as a slave to fear, I'm not going to kill myself when my other option is simply to not be afraid and think for myself. Any one of us could die at any time, and if you want to look at the odds, the smart money says it's not going to be due to an act of terrorism. It's just not worth being afraid because the man sitting in the ivory tower tells you to be. He made it really simple to let you know just how afraid he wants you to be, with color codes that even a child like Bush can understand. And while we may be losing our rights and freedoms for the sake of "security", I'm not going to give them up without a fight. Basically, you'd have to kill me before I'm willing to stop fighting; and if I have to die so that my children can walk down the streets of the most wealthy and powerful nation in the world without fear, then so be it. If only it were that simple.

Albright calls Cheney charge on terror "irresponsible"

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Vice President Dick Cheney's charge that the United States could be hit by another terrorist attack if Democrat John Kerry is elected president was irresponsible, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said.

"I have heard a lot of outrageous statements at various times in my president's elections, but I think this kind of scare tactic by the vice president of the United States is irresponsible," Albright, a Democrat who served under Bill Clinton, told CNN television.

September 11 "everybody knows, has changed a way that we are looking at fighting terrorism," Albright said.

"Senator Kerry has made very clear that he will seek a victory over the terrorists, and that this is a -- a battle that he will pursue with vigor. I just find this kind of a statement (by Cheney) over the top."

Cheney, campaigning in Iowa, said Tuesday that the United States risked suffering another terrorist attack if voters do not reelect George W. Bush in the November 2 presidential election.

"If we make the wrong choice, then the danger is that we'll get hit again," he said, implying that Kerry was less determined than Bush in fighting extremists.

On Tuesday, Kerry's running mate, John Edwards accused Cheney of "crossing the line" with his comments.

"Dick Cheney's scare tactics crossed the line today, showing once again that he and George Bush will do anything and say anything to save their jobs," Edwards replied in a statement.

"Protecting America from vicious terrorists is not a Democratic or Republican issue, it's an American issue and Dick Cheney and George Bush should know that. John Kerry and I will keep America safe, and we will not divide the American people to do it," he said.
