What is Freedom? I prefer Liberty.

President Bush talks about Freedom so much, and I distrust him so much that he's tainted the word for me and it has no meaning. No one I ask seems to know what it means.

I prefer Liberty, which implies mutual respect and responsibility without oppression.

Freedom in the Bush2 regime has become a bully's word. The freedom to do what you want, drive your S.U.V. where ever and however you want; everyone else: go to hell! The freedom to invade or take over whatever country you want, including ours. The freedom to disturb the peace or destroy the environment. Freedom to make a killing, not just a fair profit. Freedom to enjoy your privilege, and freedom to trample whomever gets in your way.

Today, at the NATO summit, Condi Rice sent Bush2 a note that Iraqi 'sovreignty' has been achieved. (That's another word that seems to have new dual meanings now, too.) Bush2 wrote on her note, "Let freedom reign."
