Ted Rall: Is A Little Less American Evil Really Too Much To Ask For?

Is it too much to ask for the US not to drone-bomb innocent civilians or torture suspected enemy combatants in Guantanamo? Cartoon by TED RALL

aNewDomain — I am frequently criticized of being too idealistic and too judgmental when it comes to politicians, whether Democrat or Republican. They’re just human beings, people tell me. They’re doing their best. Why am I so hard on them?

But the criticisms that I wage hardly seem like too much to ask. For example, don’t destroy the entire countries like Libya and Syria. Don’t kill hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq. Don’t torture them at Guantanamo. Don’t give massive tax cuts to the wealthy. Don’t hang out with rich people who want to comprise you. And don’t accept their contributions.

This is too much to ask?

For aNewDomain, I’m Ted Rall.
