Should Bush get re-elected...

Posted to Poetry and Politics




...under these or any other circumstances, I predict widespread political action. You might see the re-vitalization of political activity in this country unseen since the era of Vietnam. The climate is brewing already. More college students then ever find themselves skeptical of the powers-at-be and incresingly liberal or radical or at least anti-Bush. They just need something to galvinize them (as if the war in Iraq wasn't enough, but I guess "critical thinking" has been dormant THAT long). I for one hope the man doesn't, but I would embrace the movement that would probably arise should he end up being so fortunate/devious.
