The newest onslaught by President Bush against the American taxpayer is monumental in its enormity - and 700 Billion is only an estimate, on the low side I'm sure. As we witness this latest attack on the average American, it's important to know "why"- this attack is occurring and what we can do to stop it. Bush removed the face of democracy and replaced it with that of fascism when he demanded that American taxpayers foot the bill for the wealthy who have wrecked havoc upon our economy. It insulted every true American alive to know that Bush wants to bail out the perpetrators of this economic crisis rather than the victims--proof positive that Bush has no compassion or any bridge that would lead him to identify with the Average American. We have a President that has disengaged himself from the American people whose policy is made by Cheney and the key corporations that exert the most influence over the White House.
This last (maybe-) act against the people can be defeated, much as we did when S1959 was temporarily shelved. In that instance, Americans came together and it was one of the largest outpouring of public disenfranchisement Congress had seen for ages. There was already a press blackout on the matter, and the Bill was quietly shelved. "The people"- won a huge victory, but back then, we had more time. As it pertains to Bush's historic Bail-out, we only have days, and the outrage needs to be felt as it was when they attempted to pass S-1959, the Thought Crime Prevention Bill.
It's vital for all of us to understand how important defeating this Bill, with its current language, is as we attempt to outlast Bush and hold on to as many civil liberties we can before he causes further harm to our nation, if and when he departs the White House in shame. The rich and powerful have exhibited greed beyond comprehension, and they are looking for Bush to bail them out at taxpayer expense. This is unacceptable to any freedom-loving taxpayer. It's a blatant case of taxation without representation - and the long-term effects to our economy and "Middle-America"- haven't even been calculated - so none of us are aware of how this bail-out will affect future generations.
I believe that the support of the corporations and the wealthy have been instrumental in forestalling any efforts to impeach this President. However, if he he is handed a resounding defeat, and the "Elitists"- of this and other nations lose billions of dollars, their support of Bush will evaporate faster than you can say "evil-doers"- with a straight face. This is a chance to vote for freedom instead of fascism and let our Congress know, in no uncertain terms, that "enough is enough."- Billions of dollars have evaporated in Iraq because we have allowed the insane to run the asylum. This is another example of Prescott Bush's dreams coming to fruition, and Americans need to understand the history of treachery and treason that has been an integral part of the Bush Family history and legacy.

It's important to have a basic knowledge of the Bush family and why what many thought were "conspiracy theories"- are instead based on fact and substantiation, not speculation. If you back Bush's bail-out program, take a gooD look in the mirror; are you backing it because it's a sound financial plan, or are you backing it because of his scare tactics. Based on previous articles I've published, I believe that our economy is doomed to slide into a recession/depression no matter what we do, short of impeaching Bush and Cheney. To give the rich and powerful the protection of tax dollars while they were busy raping our economy is madness.
Today and tomorrow, and for as long as it takes we must stand-up for liberty and freedom, say no to subsidizing the rich with taxpayer money--and make Congress understand the public has had enough. For expediency, I'm using a phone number list from a previous post. We did it on S 1959, and if enough of us participate, we may be able to influence the bail-out proceedings. It's our country, let's fight for it!
NOTE: This is CNN's latest on the bail-out crisis. McCain takes hit from bailout collapse This is an issue that is not guaranteed to pass, and right now, those Senators that are holding-tough need to hear it from the people so they know that ultimately, their vote for was the people.
See The White House Phone Directory (May 18, 2007). Because I figure the regular switchboard might be busy tomorrow, but if you've got the White House phone directory, you can just work your way down until somebody picks up. (Actually, in the spirit of CD interviewing people, it might be more interesting and fun to say "Hi! I write for ______________. Do you think that Libby's commuted sentence involved obstruction of justice? Why or why not?"-)
Most of the numbers in the Directory match what I've been able to glean from open sources, so it looks authentic. The offices are taken from the White House site, and the numbers are formatted like so: 1-202-555-1212 / 1-202-555-1212, where the first number is via internet search, and the second, italic number is from the Directory:
