Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week

William Donovan of New Castle is proud to be a liberal these days. And while he rattles off some points that make sense -- President Bush being a spendthrift, going into Iraq -- he has to sink to the inevitable nonsense that too many "proud liberals" do, usually thanks to BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome). In this case, it's the US is quickly becoming a "police state":

We are very close to becoming a dictatorship. States are following the federal government in taking personal freedoms away from its citizens. Delaware like many states is on the way to becoming a police state.

When a man like Derek Hale lies dead and the killer goes free, the word liberal doesn't sound so bad now. I thank God for giving me the good sense to use my mind, to have the ability to think for myself.

As a liberal I could never goose step behind Bush and his troop of profiteers.

Oh ho! Bill even got in that little hyperbolic "goose step" comment! If "proud liberals" like Bill had any historical knowledge, they'd realize that the great liberal presidential icons of the past dwarf our current president in so-called [wartime] "dictatorial" actions. Try FDR and Woodrow Wilson, for starters.
