Bush will not leave office willingly

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   6 comments
In seven years George W. Bush has arrogated previously unthinkable dictatorial powers to himself.

Aided and abetted by right-wing Republicans and spineless Democrats in Congress he has rendered the Constitution utterly useless as an instrument for protecting the people from his authoritarian excesses. He has offered his profane opinion of the Constitution thus, "... it's just a God-damned piece of paper'' - cited by Doug Thompson in Capitol Hill Blue, Dec 5, 2005.

We all know of Bush's lies and crimes and they need not be recounted here (a Google search of - Bush lies and crimes - produces over 2 million hits). What I want to discuss here are the consequences in store for America unless steps are taken immediately to stop Bush from dismantling our democracy and replacing it with a tyrannical plutocracy.

The first steps toward this wretched future have already been taken. He has lied us into two never ending wars and has ambitions to add a third. He has instituted programs to abduct, imprison and torture anyone that he decides is an enemy (remember - he's the "decider"). He has amassed a private mercenary army willing, for a price, to mobilize against American citizens at his order (as in New Orleans).

I believe that Bush is a self-absorbed psychopath ready to concoct a false-flag event, declare martial law and indefinitely "postpone" the 2008 elections. He would then appoint himself as "temporary" supreme commander during the "emergency", which of course would never end!

The non-violent way to prevent this calamity is to impeach both Bush and Cheney and remove them from office.
