God bless America!?
Questions my mind, this mass hysteria!
How do this happen?
Why them, this day?
Painful queries in their hearst will stay!
Scarred souls are born today
Rest in Peace!, innocent souls you may!
Can't take this anymore!
Shoot to kill, thats the way to even the score!
Wait, there's more. Use deadly planes, to crush them all to the floor!
Oh shameful souls answer this? Why? What for?
Hypocritical administrations, corrupt corporations, lies to the nations!
This has all but stretched your patience!
Wisely stimulate, your mind intellectually
Your trigger-finger, sees the illusions eventually.
Destructive measures are not effective
Ask God, the greatest detective!
Peace and understanding, love and compassion
Ask it too much of those who live in cold-hearted fashion?
Thus i have written, for all to see
Could there still be, an American dream for you and me?
Maybe someone can answer my friend Lance?

Firstly I would like everyone to know that I am most certainly not anti-America in anyway. However what we are currently seeing is exactly what happened in my own country of South Africa for 50 years. We are dealing with right wing dictators under the guise of democracy. It is the work of few that are casting a dark shadow over a land of so many. Mr. Bush the most powerful man in the world and his back up crew seem to have a hidden agenda. I say this due to the fact that the cracks in the mighty America are starting to show...big time. Popularity of the country and how the world(ordinary people), perceive America has declined massively. Now due to PIRACY of DVDs and CDs coming from China, America wants to tighten trade with them...because why? I am sure the mighty rising economic empire of China does not endorse illegal trade over its borders on purpose. Is the Bush administration picking a fight with a sleeping giant? My point is this...GOVERNED BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE...is that not the backbone of democracy? It is obvious to me that national pride is still at a all time high and it is what Bush feeds on. No matter what blunder(evil plot) he comes up with, Americans stand firm in the love for their country. Admirable but dangerous...weed out the problem, the very cancer that surely will destroy democracy! Corruption is one thing but blatant disregard for the peoples rights to freedom is a very different one. One that should not be tolerated...why are young boys still being blown up along side roads in Iraq. I am sure these boys would rather be sipping a Millers lite and puffing a Malboro with his/her partner AT HOME!! Our sympathy goes to the American people, it took us 50 years to reach democracy. America always had it but in 50 years it seems you have finally reached your national socialistic state. South Africa and America have merely traded places....so I urge the people of America to take a stand as they did against apartheid! Fight the wrongs happening in your very own country, the world sees it surely you can too. For the most part we are positive that the bright shining torch bearer of democracy will return to us. Question is will this happen before that dictator does anything everyones going to regret?

Soo good old America, growing up I saw you all around. Being from Panama I got used to seeing your green(go) uniform. I have good memories about your soldiers coming in to take out an out of control Dictator to be. You made it possible for our economy to be one of the best in central and south america. You made it possible for there to be elections and us have a democracy. You were truthful to your word and when 1999 came around you and your troops left our BEAUTIFUL country. When in need of help you assisted us and helped us soo much. I don`t understand why the rest of the world is going crazy about you wanting to help Iraq become a for real country. You did the same in a smaller scale in my country and man the outcome has been in a MAJOR SCALE for us!. Many people has died that true but unfortunally that`s what happens when there is a war. In Panama people died but a reason, and I know many people who feel proud of their loved one`s deaths, they did something for their country.
I think people think you are arrogant but I think you are a strong leader. I want to have a leader that can lead and not a leader that tries to please everyone and in the process do a half done job, finish what you started, just hurry up!
I have been able to make some of my dreams come true in your beautiful land, dreams that would have been much much harder to accomplish anywhere else.
I only have one thing that dislike about you. You are not God and I can understand why your definition of freedom is twisted like it is. You allow way too many things in the name of freedom that really just keep people as slaves. I think what I mean is too deep for you to understand and the rest of the people that live in here but that I will have to live with.
America you are a bad ass with a kind heart for all I know and I like bad asses with kind hearts over weak "revolutionary" countries.
Fidel where you at? Hitler where you at? Noriega where you at? and Saddam where YOU AT? thats right no where. Oh what`s up America!
