Dare to say NO to Dubya

Dubya is a scary guy. Mr. "shock and awe", "bring "em on George" lives up to his name. He has thrown down the gauntlet to the American people and to Congress, saying that he is above the law, and can spy on anyone, anytime, without a warrant, according to his whim. Everyone should read: Bush could seize absolute control of U.S. government
by Doug Thompson

If you stand up to him, as Murtha did, he will go after your balls, the Purple Hearts you earned courageously in a war Dubya bought his way out of fighting. If you report that his Supreme Court justice nominee supports warrantless wiretapping, you are apt to be beaten to death by "muggers", as was NY TImes reporter David Rosenbaum last week. If you are in a position to spill biowarfare secrets, you may die mysteriously, as have around 50 scientists over the past few years.

If, on the other hand, you join Dubya's team, you are guaranteed to get "raptured up" when the Jesus spaceship gathers up the elect. In this life, you get to join the vultures who are picking over the bones of what they consider to be a dying planet. You can live well, go to luxurious churches, be part of the in-crowd, vent your nastiness and self-righteousness on "dissenters" and feel virtuous, all at the same time.

Dubya is a seductive drug, promising great rewards, and leading one to hell. Many Washington politicians have succumbed to the lure of perks, jaunts and handouts. We the people have been wooed with symbolic tax cuts, promises of increased security, articificially cheap gasoline, lots of electronic toys, artfully devised media dramas that are endlessly entertaining.

Like a drug, Dubya invites people into a pleasant world that is utterly out of touch with reality. Never mind that we are losing badly in Iraq and Afghanistan, with Dubya, you are a winner. Never mind that the national debt is out of sight and the dollar could crash any day, with Dubya, it is unending prosperity. Never mind that America is universally hated and despised, with Dubya we have security. All of these are fantasies, psychotic delusions, but the true believers dare not face reality.

Dubya maintains the world of corporate dominance, and as long as we depend on corporations for our food, energy, jobs, medications, entertainment, we are buying into the world that supports him. We Americans live in a bubble of material wealth, even now, compared to most of the rest of the world, and we hesitate to overthrow the established order.

Dubya is evil, and so are the people around him. Like an addictive substance, Dubya has become a monkey on the back of America. We hate him and resent him, but we can't seem to get rid of him and the mess he has gotten us into. We need to realize that he is a dangerous drug, like heroin or speed, and that draconian measures must be applied. We must utterly renounce any temptation to overlook his crimes, make excuses for him, ignore him, let someone else do it. Why don't we have the will to impeach him and Cheney?

The first 7 steps of AA's 12 step program might be helpful:
We admitted we were powerless over Dubya--that our lives had become unmanageable.

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Psalm 40: 4 Blessed is the man
who makes the LORD his trust,
who does not look to the proud,
to those who turn aside to false gods.

The punishments for resistance to Dubya can be severe. Fear is not unreasonable: of being targeted, spied upon, fired from one's job, harassed in petty ways, falsely charged with crimes, "suicided", mugged to death, anthraxed, killed in a freak car accident. This cabal is worse than the Mafia.
