Living Under the Imperial Presidency

by Jim Hightower

DURING HIS GUBERNATORIAL DAYS IN TEXAS, George W let slip a one-sentence thought that unintentionally gave us a peek into his political soul. In hindsight, it should've been loudly broadcast all across our land so people could've absorbed it, contemplated its portent...and roundly rejected the guy's bid for the presidency. On May 21, 1999, reacting to some satirical criticism of him, Bush snapped: "There ought to be limits to freedom."

  1. He said it after he was appointed too. He was pissed when he found out about that anti-jeenyus website (I can't remember which one out of the million). So...we're surrounded by fucking idiots, is all.
