Bush Over A Shrub

Although Bush has not been President for many years I still hold a resentment towards his time in office. I realized that I had a strong sense of justice when he was placed in office. I felt America has been cheated and robbed of what was fair. Bush, his brother and all the cheating with the polling stations broke my heart. I was floored and very very disappointed with the injustice and disrespect to the American people of the United States. I had and to some degree still have an adverse reaction to his name "Bush"
Although what we have now as President is far worse -Trump. For me I realized its all a fucking joke. That all the laws, justice, voting, protesting and government bull is just a joke. So I pray for America, I pray for the values I was taught as a kid about what's right and what's wrong. What's fair and unfair. I hold my heart trusting a higher power to prevail to open some magic porthole for fairness and justice. But, in the mean time I hold the space for what is right in my life and try to respect evolution. I try to respect the karma of America and the history of what was and what will be. May we all find peace and acceptance, no matter what.
