Conservative Front Group: Make Bush President for Life

Think Tank shenanigans (h/t: at-Largely)

Family Security Matters a neo-conservative based think tank has published an article advocating that George W. Bush should be a dictator for life. The organization has since taken the article down, but is still viewable via this cached link.

Conquering the Drawbacks of Democracy: By Philip Atkinson

The article written by Philip Atkinson states that Bush would fail his country by becoming an ex-President or can achieve greatness by becoming President-for-Life Bush in order to bring sense to Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Atkinson is bluntly advocating that Bush should become dictator for life with these outrageously anti-American statements.

From the article:

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.

Atkinson also advocates that Bush should get rid of everyone in Iraq through military force and repopulate the country with Americans.

Free Market News Network investigations have revealed that Family Security Matters is a front group for the Center for Security Policy, an conservative think tank with ties to Dick Cheney.

No offense, Paul and Lyall, but sometimes I wonder if you think tank folk aren't in fact the glue-eaters of our political discourse.


  1. I've never heard anything so scary as having Bush be president for life.

    Not much thinking going on at that think tank, me thinks.

  2. A "think" tank? I don't think so.

  3. Now Jason, that isn't fair. There are plenty of great think tanks out there, doing some very good thinking.: Public Citizen, the Center for American Progress, the Rockridge Institute, Demos... It isn't the fact that FSM is a think tank that makes them "glue sniffers." The ideology behind their "thought"? There you would be on to something.

  4. Bush wants to export American democracy around the world so much that we won't have any left for ourselves. How altruistic!

  5. And the writer probably pronounced nuclear as "nuc-u-lar".
