A challenge to Progressive Democrats

The American Revolution Re-Lived, but peaceful, this time

Dr. Bob (Bob Bowman, Democratic Candidate for Congress in Florida District ) asked about where the Democrats and Republicans are in joining our non-partisan Longhouse Coalition. The short answer is, they're holding out. But this question deserves a fuller answer, so here it is;

Compare the actions of Nancy Pelosi and her ilk, worried about 'partisan strife' over impeaching Bush, when in fact this so-called president is IN EFFECT murdering our troops, and therefore they're abetting continued murder of our troops. However horrible it is to overlook Iraqi casualties, let's just look at their behavior in light of our troops, who are their constituents.

It's knowledge beyond a reasonable doubt our troops are engaged in warfare in Iraq based on deliberate lies calculated to circumvent public opposition to war with Iraq. All the carnage that's ensued is based on perjury, and continuing a policy based on perjury is abetting the continued murder of our troops. It's utterly amazing they've been able to get people to lose focus of murder right under their noses by the media hawking "partisan warfare!". Or 'terrorism', when Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9-11. What rubbish! But wait till the Kevin Tillmans of this nation discover the cowardly actions of the Quislings, and learn about the alternative the Longhouse Coalition provides.

Our rightfulness for the people stands in such stark contrast with the craven behavior of the rest of the Democrats, that you're likely to be right that you are the only Democrat elected, because you were the only one willing to stand with the American people for what's right.

Each of you, answer this question, how do our actions stand up in contrast with the Democrats who've shied away from us so far, in light of Thomas Paine;
"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. [King George the Present]Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she [Bush] has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God."

Neither the Democrats or Republicans score well here. The American people are going to catch wind of this stench over the coming days, and it's going to go well for whichever Democrats wake up in time to have been on the Peoples' side. The rest who've sold out will get their just desserts.

The Corporate-controlled Republican/Democrat machine has control of the big media, but despite that, word of the Coalition is getting out. I'm not going to go into specifics, just say that time's speeded up today. Our peaceful re-enactment of the American Revolution is about to do it's Crossing of the Delaware to surprise the smug, content, Hessians of today, the Corporados. And after that, Yorktown, and "the world turned upside-down" redux.

Another bit of imagery. The corporate beast is a pirate ship, that's captured many good sailors [REAL Democrats] who are in fear for their lives, and so are controlled by the pirates. The pirate ship flag is Bush's Skull & Bones satanist cult flag, and the name of the ship is "Leviathan", the Corporate Beast. Our ship is the USS Constitution. Leviathan is a monstrously big, hoggish, warship, studded with weapons and ammo. We know the good sailors are paralyzed by fear, and until we put a few holes below the waterline and Leviathan starts to sink that they'll remain prisoners.

But we have time, and an incredibly sleek ship, what with our awesome platform, and high-calibre people. Once Leviathan starts going down, it'll sink like a stone, and the good sailors will come over, shame-faced, but at least not drowned.

I do kind of wonder how folks who hung out with Martin Luther King Jr. can sit on their duffs while the most righteous platform this nation has seen is offered them on a platter. How can John Conyers justify himself, either before his constituents, or before His Maker? Surely his very soul hangs in the balance. Or Dennis Kucinich? What's become of the noble Progressive knight of yore? Shameful!

How long before these people stand up for what's really right, instead of symbolic but meaningless gestures? Paper ballots for WHAT??? John and Dennis??? For the People? Or a corporado bait-and-switch? Will you go along with abetting the slaughter of our young men and women by not joining with those who'll oppose tyranny--the patriots of the Longhouse Coalition--and instead cozily siding with your corporado chums who won't touch the murderer. The American people see you, John and Dennis. You're both respected leaders. LEAD! Do something MEANINGFUL, not symbolic.

I wonder how continuing to work with the Quislings upholds your oaths to uphold the Constitution. Whoever remains with these people is branding themselves irrevocably. Some might say their names are blotted out of the Book of Freedom.

Now people--let them know about this!
Anyone wants to put this on an op-ed, go right ahead!
