I’m reading so much negativity from the left. I guess it’s to be expected. The system isn’t working. We know it and so do most people in this country. The government is out of control The people have just about no say in what they do in our name. They won’t impeach Bush or Cheney. We might as well understand it. Whether they should be impeached or not, it’s a moot question. The cowardly Congress won’t do anything. The time for working inside the system is over. All of these letters to our Congressmen might have been better off being used as toilet paper, because that’s just what they are doing with them.

This is when people have to hit the streets. Stop lighting candles and standing in front of Federal buildings. They don’t care. The only thing that’s going to make these bastards think twice is when you take those goddamn candles and start lighting bonfires in the street. The system is broken, understand that and we will all be a lot better off. Take everyone that voted for the Authorization of Force in Iraq and vote them out of office, all of them, Democrat, Republican and Independent. That’s about the only thing we have left for working within the system.

The time has come to work OUTSIDE the system. Start forming chains and use the principle of “passive resistance” that Gandhi preached and was used so successfully in the demonstrations against the Vietnam War. The time for standing on the sidewalk is over. These people are even worse than Nixon. They want to use Nuclear Weapons as a first-strike option! Hillary Clinton, that wonderful “progressive” even stated that fact. Obama, with all his fancy words and his phony message of “hope” is another one that thinks nothing of lobbing nukes around.

We are about a few months away from full-scale violent demonstrations like happened in the 70’s. If these mass rallies on DC and NYC don’t change the attitude of these sycophants in Washington, there will be hell to pay. They are completely oblivious to the mood in this country. They are completely oblivious of the scale that Americans are sick-to-death of Bush and his ilk. Americans are furious that New Orleans hasn’t been rebuilt! Bush even went in front of the VFW and the American Legion and he got a lukewarm reception. There was a Commander of a National Guard that heard a Governor speak in front of his National Guard troops and proclaim that the priority is to end this war in Iraq and get the troops home! The troops cheered wildly!

Just because you are reading a Progressive site, don’t think that you are the only one that’s pissed. Don’t you think for a moment that you are the “fringe”. You certainly are not. Other people are more like you than you think. Just google “Conservative Anti-War Websites.” I think you will be more than pleasantly surprised.

Frankly, I’m a little tired of these “losers” that say that America is a cesspool of right-wing filth. If you remember, Bush stole those elections. Most of Americans don’t want him. They don’t want corporations running our country anymore. They are voting for “Clean Elections”. It’s easy to say that everything sucks and that this country has always been an evil country and that it always will be. If you don’t want to do what you need to do to change it, then just shut up! I’m so sick of all you pessimistic bastards. All you are doing is throwing in the towel and you have no faith. Without some kind of faith in something, you have nothing. If you think you are unique in your belief that America is through as a decent country, then I advise you go someplace else. If you can’t fight for what you believe, you don’t belong here. One thing I can’t stand is someone that is completely negative. You’re beaten before you start. You make the progressive movement look like a bunch of spoiled crybabies. Get a grip. If you are so angry, use that anger to stop these fascists that are ruining our homeland!

This has been coming for a while. I don’t know who I’m angrier with, the neo-con bastards that don’t care about anything but power, or the people that hate them that have given up on The United States. If you want to give up and say nothing can be done, that is your prerogative, but if you see me at a demonstration or somewhere else, you better keep you mouth shut, that’s if you want to be able to talk for the next week.

This is a time where we need Patriots, not whiners. It’s going to take courage to change this nation of OURS. I will give my life to change it. Will you?

That’s the way I see it.
