I've maintained for a long time that the willful simple-mindedness, the childlike gullibility and the perpetual passivity of the American electorate constitutes the chief wellspring of political manipulation and assorted anti-Constitutional shenanigans in this country - simply because it supplies the "fuel" by which authoritarian demagogues such as Bush & Cheney can continue to sustain their institutional power grabs. Honestly, they make Richard Nixon look like a schoolyard bully by comparison...

One wonders how many times we need to collectively get burned before a plurality of American voters finally wakes up, recognizes the harsh reality of the abuses being conducted in their name - and finally puts a halt to it. Based on past experience, I'm sorry to say I'm not holding my breath...
