How long will it take for the new administration to correct all the abuses of the Bush administration and why are there no plans to at the very least openly state that Bush was guilty of the abuse of power? Every person deserves an opportunity to seek life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in an environment that is free from abuse of power, the harmful effects of bigotry, intolerance, and discrimination. Abuse is the use of any power unfairly. The use of power (force) per-se is not evil, but its ABUSE is EVIL. Everyone has the right to self-defense, i.e. the right to use force LEGALY to retaliate against those who FIRST start the use of force. Using force in retaliation (self-defense) against those who had initiated it is not just a moral option, but a moral requirement. ONLY government has a monopoly on the use of physical force. A government is NOT only permitted to retaliate and defend against those who initiate force, but it MUST act if a resident was forcibly affected by another who initiated force or abused power.
