About the Author
I am serving in Iraq even as I write this. People are dying senseless deaths here every day. Amerika wake up! You do not have to send your sons and daughters to the slaughter! You do NOT owe your President the lives of your first born! Occupation of Iraq is NOT a guarantee of your safety! It is a brutal recruiting campaign for future terrorists!

"...Therefore it is unnecessary for a prince to have all the good qualities I have enumerated, but it is very necessary to appear to have them. And I shall dare to say this also, that to have them and always to observe them is injurious, and that to appear to have them is useful; to appear merciful, faithful, humane, religious, upright, and to be so, but with a mind so framed that should you require not to be so, you may be able and know how to change to the opposite." -The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

give form to the contention
that Democracy is what is needed
to feed, clothe, and shelter the
cut-off, repressed American locked inside
of every godless breast.

there was nothing left in the space
where once eyes, nose, mouth had lived
