The Bush/Cheney administration has proven true the words of Thomas Jefferson:
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure." Thomas Jefferson
It has gone way too far. The Bush/Cheney cabal is destroying the lives of the people of the United States, to feed the vapid greed of corporate America.
Cheney is sending fathers of young children and children yet to be born back into the quagmire of Iraq, and the upcoming invasion of Iran on Cheney's drawing board. Cheney is throwing away innocent lives in the Middle East and America, to feed the megalomaniacal lust for power of the insane occupants of the White House.
It's time to impeach the crooks and thugs in control of the United States government, and if Congress doesn't have the will to impeach them, then we must march to Washington en masse and throw them out of the halls of government.
This does not mean a violent revolution, since violence only begets violence. We cannot birth a just and rational nation in the pangs of violent revolution. However, revolution can be just and complete with no compromise in the defense of human liberty and the sanctity of all life. The Present Occupants can be shown the door without harm, and left to fend for themselves in the empty streets of the nation they despise.
The difficult part is that the revolutionary response must be in overwhelming numbers, and most people in this country have been trained to be quiescent and accepting of authoritarian oppression. In our airports, expediency is brought the to the fore when we are forced to accept demeaning "security" procedures by figures of authority when we are anxious to complete our important journeys to work or to loved ones. We accept unnecessary oppression in order to be allowed to go where we want to go, when we want to go there. This is exactly the techniques used in Nazi Germany to build acceptance for the oppressive Nazi regime.
Left to ourselves, we are only one person facing the TSA goons, forced to miss our plane and sit in the airport, or jail, for expressing our outrage at having had our liberties torn from us.
It will take a massive march on Washington, DC, of millions of people, crowding the streets of our federal capital, to tell the cowards and feebs in Washington that we've had enough and we will no longer tolerate imperialism, warmongering, bribery (campaign financing), graft and corruption in our name.
We demand that our politicians return home to face the people, and if they will no longer do the bidding of the people they feign to represent, that they be stripped of their office and replaced by delegates appointed by assemblies and federations from their representative districts, delegates who will do the bidding of the people, free from corporate bribery and usury.
It's time we spread some Democracy around the United States of America!
