Shun the Kool-Aid

There is recent talk within the Bush administration that Homeland Security might consider postponing the presidential election if there appears to be a terrorist threat targeting polling places in November. Unbelievable how this administration pours more fear into the cultural Kool-Aid for the masses to drink.

Most of us know the possible threat to our lives driving that asphalt ribbon of Highway 49, but it doesn’t stop us from making the journey, from living our lives. We know the risk and do it nonetheless.

As a people, we are free. It is through fearlessness that we know it and can say it, and it is with fearlessness that we will maintain it. Terrorists are not a threat to our freedom. Fear kills freedom. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid.
