The Fabric of Our Social Contract

It is so easy to miss the forest for the trees. There are so many atrocities daily from this misAdministration that sometimes I lose sight of how far we have sunk as a nation.

inCurious George has done much more than just start an illegal war against a country that had no ability to harm us and nothing to do with 9/11, he has also subverted the US Constitution, attacked human rights and insists he can keep on, keeping on trashing Americans' rights. The Geneva Conventions are not quaint! The US Constitution is not just a legal document, it is the basis of almost every democracy that has since sprung forth, and most that died aborning.

The social contract of one human being to all others is the cornerstone of a democracy. Yet Bushco has so rendered asunder the fabric of this contract that America, long held as a shining beacon, has now become the dark light, and is included among the greatest offenders.

How have we so mislaid the concepts of our Declaration of Independence?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

When I think of what we have lost, I grieve deeply. Not just for my country, but for the world.
