So long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye… get out.
Dear President Bush, Thanks for the memories. You will be missed. Thanks for making people care. And don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Wishing you all the best, A Citizen.
I started high school the year you went into Office, and now, eight
years later, I am frankly amazed. Under your Administration, I have
watched my liberties evaporate, my friends get shipped off to one of
the most dangerous corners of the world, my money become less valuable,
and my prospects of getting a good job out of college dwindle.
And for what?
You lied to me, you disrespected me, you robbed me, and you violated my human rights.
What do you have to show for that?
The world went from loving us (or at least tolerating us) to
loathing us. Our money went from being the preferred international
currency to less than that of Canada’s. Our schools are languishing
under the burden of your asinine No Child Left Behind Act. New Orleans
still has not entirely recovered from Hurricane Katrina. The NSA, FBI,
CIA, and local police can look at my mail, listen to my phone
conversations, or go through my online history at a whim. The economy
frankly sucks, thanks in part to you and your lust for deregulation and
Where is Osama bin Laden? When will the Mission really be Accomplished? What have you actually accomplished?
I am ashamed of my country, we were the shining white knight of the
world, gave more international aid and support than other countries
combined, but now we are known as liars, profiteers, torturers, and
murderers. We went from having the greatest level of international
approval and support following 9/11/2001 to being absolutely reviled.
So far it seems that the only people who got ahead in these past eight
years were your friends and business partners whose interests you
looked out for.
With all that in mind, I now say to you: Good bye and Good Riddance.
Now get the fuck out of my government,
