Is it something about the name George?

My friend goheiGohei posted the full text of the Declaration of Independance on his journal.  In reading it over, I'm nonplussed by the remarkable similarties between King George III and George W. Bush:

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

Or, you know, let said judges win the election for him.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people...

Homeland Security?  TSA?  Hmmmm....

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

Do I really need to explain this one?

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

Just ask all the people who've been disappeared for suspected ties to terrorism... Oh wait you can't; noone knows where they are!

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

I dunno, sounds like the "independant contractors" in Iraq....

Ok, if Bush wins, we either leave the country... or we start a revolution.
