The most powerful weapon in the world...

I saw the greatest comment on the upcoming election today: "2000 was an awful mistake. Time for a War on Error."

The fact that the current administration keeps bringing up the "War on Terror", that misbegotten bastard child of wannabe double-speak, brings my mind harkening back to the unforgettable World Trade Center incident. If they can dredge it up, so can I.

When I was in high school, there was a stabbing on campus, perpetrated with a box cutter. When I was in college, there was a massive assault on American soil- perpetrated with a handful of box cutters. One box cutter brought tragedy to a small city, and a group of them brought it onto the world. First, they killed several thousand people with box cutters, and that was just the start of the whole thing. The individuals that orchestrated the attack on the World Trade Center have managed to:
a) percipitate the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers, uncounted numbers of mercenaries, and thousands of civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq
b) percipitate the complete destruction of American foriegn policy, establish a new American unilateralism, and generally turn American into the biggest bully in history.
c) percipitate such a fear in the United States that, with the public's consent (explicit or implicit), the very ideals that the nation was founded on are being eroded, destroyed, ignored, and forgotten.

All with a bunch of box cutters. MacGyver should be proud of them, for I do not believe that at any point in history, so much has been done with so little. Mind you, they had help, in the form of an administration so intent on securing first, American control of the world economy, and second, government control of the American people. With another President, I believe that their attack would have had fewer and less severe far-reaching effects.

Which is why, you should vote me for President, even if I don't meet the age requirement.
