The United States is ripe for a major change. The Bush regime is collapsing from its own arrogance, greed and stupidity. What will replace it? And will we the people have any say in the matter? How can we prepare ourselves?

Many of us want to see much more than a change of political party. The Democrats' ratings are nearly as low as those of the Republicans. The moderate wing of the GOP is probably considering whether to start impeachment proceedings now, while the House is still in their hands, so that the Speaker, who replaces Bush and Cheney, will be one of theirs. Of course, Dennis Hastert, the current Speaker, is also tainted with scandal.

The Democrats are not talking impeachment even now, when it is pretty clear that they will win back the Congress in 2006. Many people are wondering why. I believe that the Bush machine is so entrenched, by the typical mafioso means of combined bribery and blackmail, that when Bush goes down, half of Washington will go with him.

Bush and Cheney are so stubborn and arrogant that they will not bow out gracefully, as Nixon did. Many suspect that they will try to impose martial law. Congressman Ron Paul is warning that foreign troops are poised to control American cities. There are always the Halliburton/Blackwater goons that clamped down on the poor people of New Orleans. However, the American military, at this point, is unlikely to cooperate in a military coup.

In fact, the professional soldiers hate the chickenhawks, and the spook community has united behind Wilson and Plame. So the Bush/Cheney power base is shaky at best. The angels in the Attorney General's office- Fitzpatrick and the Abramoff team- are proceeding slowly and deliberately to swing their scythes at the arrogant heads in the White House.

Meanwhile, we the people are clamoring for big changes. Get out of Iraq. Get off the oil t*tty, and start taking care of global warming. Confiscate the spoils of the billionaire robber barons, and put them back in the US treasury, to provide for the people, whose taxes have been stolen. We want free, good universal health care, like most civilized countries have. Also a decent educational system, based on current realities, not on corporate American propaganda. We want some sanity. We want peace.

Take away personhood from corporations, and severely limit their powers and profit-making ability, as did our Founding Fathers. Give the national forests, at least, to native people, with the proviso that they tend them with native wisdom, to the benefit of all. Dismantle the military machine and negotiate peace with all other countries.

God is with the peacemakers. He blesses us. I have faith that a period of chaos is coming, which will provide us with the opportunity to make the big, big changes that are necessary. All we have to do is to love Him/Her, love our neighbors, and remember the seventh generation hence in everything we do, from now on.

Mark 13: 33Jesus said to his disciples:
Be watchful! Be alert!
You do not know when the time will come.

In the name of the Prince of Peace, Carol Wolman
