Plot To Take Over US

Has GW Bush accomplished what his grandfather couldn't?

Back in the 1930s a general by the name of Smedley Butler exposed a plot to overthrow the government of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and install a fascist oligarchy backed by some of America’s most powerful business leaders and conservatives. Prescott Bush, grandfather of George W., was among those linked to the plan.
It makes you wonder whether this stuff forms the background legacy for these children born into privileged families. Is this why so many feel entitled to freedoms others don't have? And/or why they believe they can take others' freedoms away?
