Ignoring warnings about imminent terrorist attacks led to thousands of Americans killed in NYC, DC and Pennsylvania, an unwinnable war in Afghanistan and the loss of civil rights for Americans.
Lying about weapons of mass destruction and inventing a connection between Saddam and bin Laden led to thousands of American troops maimed and killed, many more thousands Iraqi civilians killed and enormous profits for Haliburton and other Bush/Cheney cronies.
But those aren't the biggest reasons George W. Bush will go down as the most destructive president in American history. This is.
The craziest thing about all of it is that Republicans want to continue the tax cut policies, corporate welfare and finance industry deregulation that are dragging the country - and the rest of the world - down the shithole.
What they don't seem to understand is that they are the ones who are destroying capitalism. When the economy collapses under the weight of Republican ignorance and corporate greed, it will make room for socialism and true democracy to rise worldwide.
There will be a new world order. And that's a good thing.
