I think we have reached peak stupid

THOMAS JEFFERSON, a denunciation of slavery, 1785
The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it…The parent storms, the child looks on, catches the lineaments of wrath, puts on the same airs in the circle of smaller slaves, gives a loose to his worst passions, and thus nursed, educated, and daily exercised in tyranny, cannot but be stamped by it with odious peculiarities. The man must be a prodigy who can retain his manners and morals undepraved by such circumstances … if a slave can have a country in this world, it must be any other in preference to that in which he is to be born to live and labor for another … or entail his own miserable condition on the endless generations proceeding from him … Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever.

Blowin' in the Wind was a good soundtrack for that video. Awesome example of mass brainwashing: all cliche and repeated phrases utterly devoid of substance. You'd need a rock drill to penetrate that dissonance.

Good grief!! That sounds just like Canada, with Harper at the helm.

Rumor has it, Harper wants Romney to win. That's enough to scare the hell out of me. Our Canadian Democracy, is vanishing. Our civil Rights and Liberties are taken away from us. Harper is now going to take, our Freedom of Speech away from us. Harper hates the internet. He hates his dastardly deeds, being posted out for the public to see. Even our Human Rights are being abused.

The American people, should be careful of what they wish for. Very, very careful. They too, can end up in a dictatorship. Harper does not lead, he dictates.

I hate to have to be the one to suggest it, but somebody needs to offer themselves up on the altar of freedomness and have an affair with Mr. Harper. Or have your ReiKKKwing assholes gotten to the point where that sort of thing doesn't register with their sheeple?
