Americans Proudly Voting for Evil

Recently by Scott Lazarowitz: Civil Unrest: Do Our Rulers Actually Want It To Happen?
As our society continues to rapidly decay, we have a presidential election in which the zombies will be out there in droves voting for the two statists, Obama and Romney.
The conservatives continue to support an aggressive and belligerent foreign policy – despite all its blowback – that includes indiscriminate drone bombings and murders of innocent foreigners. So much for being "pro-life."
These days, warmongers who claim to be Christian have lost touch with their Christianity, so it seems. The arrogant and narcissistic attitude of "American Exceptionalism" far supersedes traditional Judeo-Christian moral values with todays conservatives. So despite Romney’s many left-leaning problems, he will probably get the conservatives and the Exceptionalists’ vote.
And the progressives – many of them will vote for Obama, knowing full well about the Obama Administration’s drone-murders of innocents, and other anti-human rights, anti-civil liberties acts of immorality and criminality.
In a recent article on identifying and rejecting evil, Arthur Silber uses two articles, one from the New York Times and another from the Washington Post, to show how the Obama Administration not only wants its murder program known to the American people, but is doing so proudly.
The program in question is the U.S. President’s assassinations of "terrorists," or "terrorist supporters," without due process, and without the President being required to present evidence against the accused.
So really we are talking about suspected terrorists. And worse, most of those who have been murdered overseas by Obama’s drone bombings have been innocent civilians and not actual terrorists [.pdf].
To cover themselves, as noted in the earlier NYT article, the Obama Administration has defined as "militants" (and thus worthy of a U.S. Presidential execution by drone) "all military-age males" who were unfortunate enough to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Silber notes how, while the Obama Administration (through its propaganda organs the Times and the Post) wants the American people to know about its murder program and that these officials are proud of it, most Americans nevertheless remain unaware of the implications of such a program. Silber writes:
Americans cannot legitimately claim ignorance of the immense evil being perpetrated by their government. They will not be able to claim, as others have tried to do in the past: "We never knew about the horrors that were being committed. How can you believe that we knew about that?"
Americans know all about it, in horrifying, endless detail. The State wants them to know. But the State knows that almost all Americans will refuse to admit what it means. Americans have chosen to sleepwalk blindly into the mouth of Hell.
However, while the Times, the Post and many amongst the MSM act as spokesmen for the Obama Administration’s drone-murder program, there are nevertheless many people who still don’t know about them, about Obama’s "kill list" and Obama’s NDAA provision of indefinite detention of Americans, and so forth. In this video, an interviewer talks to Obama supporters who can’t believe that those policies are Obama’s. And in this video, the same ignorance is shown by a sitting U.S. Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
And in this video, former Homeland Security Sec. Tom Ridge exemplifies many Americans’ cluelessness about the Obama "kill list," and their lack of understanding of the meaning of a government program that administers death arbitrarily without....
