Where did we actually go wrong? How can this be the same country that impeached a very popular President for lying under oath to a Special Prosecutor that spent over ten million dollars of our tax money only to come up with the fact that Clinton got a blow job? That my friends was the beginning of a Republican claim to power that has practically ruined this country. Not only was that the most expensive blowjob in the history of mankind, it also paved the way for the “moral majority” to come to power, and using the power of the pulpit and the Press, they have turned this country into one of the most horrific, reviled regimes that has held power since Adolf Hitler convinced the German People that they were “the master race”.
This President has brought this nation to the point of dictatorship. Even this Democratic Congress with it’s “big win” this week on cutting funding to this war after sometime in 2008, has also funded this war with 114 Billion more dollars. This is no “call to conscience” for Congress. All they have managed to do is to make certain that this President will use his veto power to send this bill back to Congress. This entire war is illegal and immoral and the American people want it stopped. Are the politicians stopping it?
Actually, we are worse off now than we were before the elections. The Democratic win that installed a majority of Democrats in the House and Senate actually did nothing more than to legitimatize this illegal war. Before the Democratic victory, we could say that it was the right wing republicans that brought this war to the American people. Now, after funding this war, Congress is effectively “buying in” to this naked excuse to grab Iraq’s oilfields. Now it’s not just a Republican mistake, both parties must share in the blame. We Americans have a right to be outraged for we have throughout this folly, effectively lost control of our government by the people.
This is not the world I envisaged when I was a young man. This is exactly what I believe the German people went through when Hitler came to power., Our Congress and our Media have done nothing to alert ordinary citizens that their rights are being subjugated by the government. The time for action is almost past. Either Congress impeaches Bush and Cheney for High Crimes and Misdemeanors (Felonies), or they will cease to be defenders of our freedoms. We will have no Freedoms. What we lost since 9/11 must be restored or our nation will, like Iraq, become a failed state. This isn’t a prediction, it is a reality.
