The Linear Canvas
This journal is about the wrongs and rights of the world, as I see them.

The Linear Canvas


May 9th, 2004 . by Alexander Fisher

Some say that it is un-American to criticize the president. I say it’s un-American for someone to say that we can’t. “They” say that about religion too. More and more, our country seems more like a theocracy rather than a real democracy.

We are fighting in Iraq over religion and oil. I would say that’s un-American. We’ve killed over 100,000 Afghans and Iraqis because a bunch of Saudi Arabians killed about 3,000 Americans. Is that what Jesus would do? Would Abraham Lincoln have turned the other cheek?

We’re spending billions of dollars rebuilding the Iraqi oil business and infrastructure while our schools have been in dire straits for years and could be fixed by using just a portion of money being wasted in Iraq. How American is that?
