I think everybody serves some purpose on this earth. Some people unify directly or indirectly, and others divide, directly or indirectly. One could argue that Bush is the spark that unifies the country, or at least part of it.
In the grander scheme of things, who can say what would have happened if Bush would have made different decisions?
What if the true ramifications of what Bush has done, will be revealed at a later date?
For instance, assume we finish up in Iraq, and in 4 or 5 years, they have a working government, the children have shots and food, and education is better in the schools for them. Would that justify Bush?
Or to look down another path, assume GW did nothing and allowed the UN to stonewall and control. Then assume, Saddam was able to continue working on a nuclear program. They encounter a cherynobyl type incident and 90% of the population is killed.
I donīt think as humans, we have the ability to judge anybody based on our perceptions. I am guilty of it but I try hard not to be. No matter how hard we try, we canīt see the end results of actions or reactions.
I am willing to wait and see what his purpose is, and history will show if he is indeed a creature of light or darkness.
In conclusion(sorry for the long post) I am determined to live my life to the fullest that I can. I plan on enjoying each moment. I have let to many things get me down this year, and am trying to not let that happen any more. Something is coming in the future that will be a testing and trying time for all mankind, not just Americans. Either by Biblical terms, Native American prohesy, or the gut feeling that most of us have, but refuse to acknowledge, it will happen.
