Mr. Bush, Are You On The Road To Damascus?

Bob Dylan once said "Smokey Robinson is America's greatest living poet" which is more than just a ringing endorsement when you think of the stature and artistry of the man who is giving the compliment. Syria, whose capital city is Demascus is one of the countries added to Mr. Bush's expanded Axis of Evil. The chickenhawks of this administration eye confrontations with Syria, using the same false pretenses which lead to the Iraq occupation......."Weapons of Mass Destruction(Nuclear Weapons). Mr. Bush gives the impression of being a man of very strong religious convictions who on various occasions has said the he talks with God and God talks with him. We are told that Mr. Bush has the overwhelming support of the religious community...especially the Evangelicals. In fact we are told that "morals and morality" were the major advantages Mr. Bush had over his opponent Mr. Kerry in the last election. This happened to such an extent that the Christian Right put George W. Bush back in the white house. Evangelist Bill Graham thanked God for George Bush's re-election. What is not getting across in the media is that the election looks very much like it was stolen. I may be wrong but isn't there something in the bible about stealing being one of the things you should NOT do? I also think there was something in the bible about bearing false witness. Is there something in the bible about NOT killing?" All of these are things that George Bush has done, directly or indirectly. Once again the 2000 and 2004 elections were STOLEN (that is why Bush won, not because of the overwhelming presence of the Evangelicals). The existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was a LIE. Saddam Heussein surrogates did NOT make arrangements to purchase yellowcake uranium in Niger. There is NOTHING wrong with Social Security. I came across a recent Smokey Robinson composition that may or may not have been written with George Bush in mind. If it wasn't, it certainly could have been. I would like to share it with a wider audience...the world wide web.


Road to Damascus
By William Robinson Jr.

Are you on the road to Damascus?
Are you on your way to do somebody wrong?
Are you trying to do what he asks us?
And love your fellow man through Jesus’ love we can get along
We can get along

Lift up your eyes and be blinded by his light
See better than you could with twenty twenty sight
Fall off your high horse and be humbled on the ground
His voice is the sound that can turn your life around
His voice sound can turn your life around
Turn around now, turn around
Yeah turn around now, turn around

Are you on the road to Damascus?
Are you on your way to do somebody wrong?
Are you trying to do what he asks us ?
And love your fellow man through Jesus’ love we can get along
We can get along

Take some time to think before you speak
He is the answer you’ll find if you seek
He gave you free choice you can use
But He don’t have to like the road that you choose
He don’t have to like the road you choose
Turn around now, yeah turn around

Turn around now, turn around
Turn around now, turn around

Are you on the road to Damascus?
Are you on your way to do somebody wrong?
Are you trying to do what he asks us
And love you fellow man through Jesus’ love we can get along
We can get along
