A perfect example of how this foolish simpleton sees the wide world of color as if everything is simple black and white... enough of this retro-cowboy, lets impeach him and put a sane person in charge... oops, that wouldn't be the V.P. either... sigh.

    Oh what a freedom quote, especially since being with Bush Jr. is just being with a Terrorist with Government Powers and a Statist agenda; I guess he offers a Catch 22.

    I agree "impeach bush" -- Many. It takes two to make him a treason suspect on the record. I have seen more than two arguments.

    When Bush said this he was establishing an important legal and policy precedent. He was speaking basically to the Taliban government of Afghanistan who had allowed the monster Al Qaeda to grow and fester and train its troops within its borders and in fact had become one and the same thing. In order to invade soverign Afghanistan and go after Al Qaeda Bush had to make this connection. I still believe in the fundamentals of American democracy and freedom, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Cahtolics in harmony under "one roof", Al Qaeda does not. So Bush's dichotomy is valid on a much broader level do you believe in freedom or not.

    "Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -- Hermann Goerring

    "All war, but most particularly war funded by monetary inflation, bleeds a country in multiple ways. Obviously, many of the young people who are in the military literally give their blood, and sometimes their lives, fighting in wars of this type. Meanwhile, those who do not fight the war, but fund it, are forced to pay both the immediate costs, as well as seeing their long term purchasing power erode, as the twin pillars of debt and inflation are foisted upon the backs of current taxpayers and future generations. Neither conspiracy nor coincidence explains steep increases in the price of gas as the war drags on. No, this is simply a reality of the inflationary policies that, among other things, make this war possible." Ron Paul

    Wow! His last great word for the day is "Testy" in a speech he made while visiting one of his puppets in London. Bush and his cohorts must stand trail for treason, they have betrayed the American people for their own greed and caused thousands to die in the process. He has created more terrorists than any terrorist organization -- it will take years to repair the damage he has perpetrated on the American People and the rest of the world. What is unbelievable is that he was elected in the first place, and secondly, that he has been in power for nearly eight years. To become President of the most powerful nation in the world and you don't even have to submit a resume (you know what I mean). There is no intelligence test (just a low IQ would do -- not to low), no means test, no job interview -- they say a leader reflects its people, well if that's the case we are in big trouble -- Yes, Ignorance is Strength. Robin Hood where are you? All is forgiven. America needs to be rid of three things: Bushtality, the Fed, and Religious Fundamentalists.

    Its not what I think but what I and many others know, When the first tower was hit, Bush was in front of a TV WAITING FOR THE FIREWORKS --unless you believe that he lied in the Whitehouse Newsfletter where he said that he was sitting outside of the classroom waiting to go in and there was a TV where he saw the first hit and his thought "what a terrible pilot". He then entered the classroom and in a short time, his aide entered and said, "Mr. President, they hit the other tower." He had foreknowledge and a closed circuit TV! Aside from that, Bush is a Freemason and all Freemasons swear oaths under penalty of death to support the second most powerful force on earth. So, you will ask you Freemason daddy or uncle if this is true? They also swear to conceal and never reveal. Albert Pike was the highest Mason in American history. On pages 104 and 819 of Morals and Dogma (1871) Pike said that the higher Masons mislead all below them. Other Masons included or include, Stalin, Mao Tze Tung, Castro, Hitler and Saddam Hussein. Wherever you see a five pointed star, you see a symbol of Freemasonry. In The New Age, Sep. 1950, The Scottish rite of Freemasonry said that their god (Lucifer) is "dedicated to the unification of all races, religions and creeds" and that their god "has chosen the great American public school system to bring on their New World Order. www.morpix.biz/newage We ARE targets of biological, chemical, economic, psychological and spiritual warfare. Biological? www.notmilk.com Chemical? www.dorway.com Economic? The Federal Reserve admits their operation of a confidence game and that the history of banking is a history of fraud, page 3, Modern Money Mechanics. They prefer healthy money to healthy people and published: Keeping Our Money Healthy where they said their unlimited "money" would keep its value "if there were fewer people bidding against each other." You think water is fluoridated to protect your teeth??? For 11 years, the professionals at the EPA have been telling the world that fluoride is killing people. Search: nteu fluoride for their site and related sites. The most repeated lie? "Government spends money." IRS asks no one for "money". They only request PAPER! They cannot get money from you when all that you have in banks is numbers and they need no money when all of us will risk our lives for more numbers.

    Clear and unadulterated logic. Sounded alot like the "You are either with me or against me" thatY'Shua, The Messiah, said. Frankly, President bush has done a wonderful job in difficult circumstances. As with any President you cannot like everything he does but when you don't know all the details you might just realize he knows what he is doing. I, for one, have appreciated the overall results. I agree with his statement, therefore. You are either with remaining free or you are for an Islamic Shariah Totalitarian State. Such muslim oppression requires women to be slaves with no value at all, the ruling class to be absolute in their judgments and the majority (think 95%) of the population ion near abject poverty. Not too hard a choice is it? Patrick J. Burwell/OnlyJesusSaves.com

    Let us remember that Bush is neither God nor the messiah -- he is a puppet. Let us never forget that the World Trade Center was bombed by Saudis led by Bin Laden, a Bush family friend and documented CIA operative. Statements like this are spoken to intimidate those who might question the government's story. 'Us' in this case is who? The Bush's, the GOP, the nation? Not me.

    Bush always looks a little bit disconnected from reality, even this morning while taliking about the midwest floods. I think he has some kind of emotional disorder. I agree Dave that it was strange that he was so cool in reading to the schoold kids while NY was going through their hell. He did have some kind of prior knowledge that we would be attacked by terrorists. But hell how could even the Pres. believe something like

    Bush Derangement Syndrome - a mental disorder affecting primarily, but not exclusively, people who are of a leftist or totalitarian Islamist bent. These people exhibit extreme paranoia and tend to blame all the world's ills on a single man, who, according to them does not have the intelligence to tie his own shoes. Consequently, it makes one wonder if in fact this man is so unintelligent, how has he out maneuvered all of these brilliant people for so many years.

    well my religion, my region and my thoughts are all classified in the terror zone..terrorism is but a reaction to the stupidity of rulers like this guy. when an Iraqi girl is raped once at the age of 14 by an Iraqi soldier then again at the age of 21 by an American i beleive she has every right to go nuts ..call it terror, extreme whatever. i wonder how Americans having a way of thinking are turning like Arabs flowing with the current, one has brain to use it for his/her good not otherwise. because of discrimination ,even inner one, ppl forget that we are all categorized as human beings n ths makes us all worthy of the minimum at least and from an unbiased viewpoint

    The "us" here, is a terrorist cell all unto its own - so to complete the choice, you're either with one terrorist group or the other. Terrorism can be seen when habeas corpus is suspended, torture is conducted for information, out right lies are told to place American lives in harms way, etc. I choose not to be with any terrorists.

    Who is "us"? The US government? The US people? The Bush Admin? Neoconservatives in general? What does "with" mean? Physically, emotionally, ideologically, militarily, politically? Does it mean "next to" or merely in "support of"? And how in the HELL does he define what a "terrorist" is? A dear professor of mine once said "defining terrorism and torture are a lot like trying to define pornography... you can't ever really define it, but you know it when you see it". Problem is, when government gets involved, the more ambiguous the terms the more liberty is lost. Terms and conditions are vital to a free society, nothing can be left up to "well, yeah, you 'know what I mean'". Who has caused more fear and uncertainty around the world? Bin laden or Bush? There are some pretty convincing peer-reviewed papers I've read that would seriously make you re-consider what you think you knew-- not all is right in Washington D.C... There's a reason many international organizations are putting together a case to try Bush as a war criminal at the Hague. As a God-fearing Conservative I'd say, Good Riddance! Damn nation building!

    Howie, we at Liberty Quotes believe it takes 2 wings to fly. :-) We send out quotes from Hitler and Stalin, too, that doesn't mean we agree with them (e.g. did you happen to catch the title of this page: INFAMOUS George W. Bush quote?). RobertSRQ, I am sorry, but we cannot promise GWB will not make any more dumb statements -- this particular dumb statement received a standing ovation in Congress on both sides of the aisle, so obviously Bush is not alone in expressing these sentiments. Then again, what would have been the consequences of not cheering for it ...? Bush's statement implies that most of the commentors here can now be classified as suspected terrorists. :-) Therefore, in our view, this quote is worthy of inclusion in a collection of Liberty Quotes. I think the number of thumbs down should be a good indicator of how most feel about it.

    A great and moving quote from someone who dodged the war in Vietnam! Not only that but he stole the quote and modified it! So I must be with the terrorists? because I am against his Fascist government? How about this quote" either your in a recession or your not! " Either your a great president or your not"! Either you screwed up the economy or you did not" ! F@@k ing idiot! In conclusion , one man's terrorists is another man's freedom fighter! Thomas Paine would have been labelled a terrorist, as well as the rest of the founding fathers!

    Clearly the worst President in over a century. Bush has no respect for the Constitution or individual liberties. He used the war on terror to try to justify undermining the Constitution and subject innocent Americans to needless wiretaps, searches, and other forms of harrassment by law enforcement and the government itself. Then to label anyone who disagrees with him as siding with the terrorists is even more outrageous. What an arrogant control freak. Bush was the biggest domestic threat to the Constitution and freedom in decades. Maybe the FBI, NSA, CIA, and DHS should investigate him.
