That's because liberals run the mainstream media, including Fox, music, popular culture and the school systems and of course politics.

They spent 8 years spewing poison at Bush who had the job of trying to figure out how to prevent other terrorist attacks from happening, liberals attacked him from all angles, even assualted soldiers, attacked his kids, and they did it like a rabid pack of dogs for 24/7/365, they relished it and NOW they wonder why the country is in a mess. What man could withstand 8 years of commedians, commentators and Tv anchors trashing him?

But more than that, it's the fall away from the hallmarks of Western Civilization. Liberals preach hate towards Western Civ but they sure do love their lattes, computers, video games, mp3's, HDTV's and other stuff men from Western Civ produced.

We live in a different world today. It's hard to pinpoint exactly how it got to this, but I think it has alot to do with allowing kids to run things
maybe votes should have stayed at 21?
