Yep. We live in a theocratic oligarchy with strong despotic tendencies, I'd say. A president who believes that God told him to run, God told him to fight Al Qaeda, God told him to occupy Iraq. A government comprised primarily of the elite, people with no connection to or understanding of the people they allegedly represent. Talk of postponing elections. Silencing of the opposition, strangling the mass media. "We're turning the corner," Bush says. Yes, we are.
