Gop must Jump Ship or Sink

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
CNN reports that the ‘car bombers’ in Iraq are terrorists when in fact they are civilians fighting for their lives the only way they know how. The Iraqis can see the worlds largest embassy being built with 15 foot concrete walls, and barber shops, pools, movie theaters, golf courses, and stores stocked to the hilt within. It is pretty much official, upwards of 600,000 Iraqis have died as a result of our liberation and occupation. And I thought we were just there to get Saddam and his stockpile of the worlds most dangerous weapons? Why aren’t they thankful that we use depleted uranium bullets and bombs on their countryside and want our oil companies to control their oil? They should be glad we came to fracture their society and happy that we have destroyed so much that they can now start from truly scratch.

Osama Bin Laden has stated from the start that his goal to is to bog us down in a middle eastern conflict making it easier for us to bleed blood and money. Bush and Cheney have delivered handsomly. They are busting the bank and US soldier deaths and injuries are surging. The majority shiites have been told by their leader to stop killing the minority sunnis and start focusing on us. The reconstruction is collapsing amidst incredible scandal, shoddy work, and the expenditure of billions down the tubes to oblivion doing not what cent of good for the people of Iraq.

The cronies of Bush and Cheney sure are doing good though. Pat Robertson’s TV Law School graduates are doing well with over 175 working in the administration providing what only a law degree can bring from a tier four school founded by a nutcase. Ah not the best or the brightest, but certainly the most brainwashed and devoted to the marching orders.

Halliburton continues to take over our public and military services and gouge us taxpayers deeply in the process. The private Blackwater Army in Iraq (for oil army I guess) is reaping billions, and these oil soldiers get paid 5-10 times what our soldiers do with your tax dollars. They also are pampered in Iraq and each Blackwater soldier can cost up to three times as much to support as well. Oil companies have world record profits but Bush can’t raise their taxes one cent. Being bogged down in Iraq’s not so bad when you are a war profiteer buddy of Bush /Cheney. Victory would be to come home and leave a people that never asked us to invade and want us to leave now, right?

Any politician (or party) that remains loyal to this misbegotten, corrupt and scandal plagued administration is history. It is even becoming clear due to recent federal convictions (and more to follow) of poll workers in Cuyahoga County Ohio that Bush may indeed not have rightfully won the election in 2004. Figure this...Bush and Cheney were meeting with disgraced secretary of state Blackwell in Ohio on Election day in Columbus, and the same internet servers that tried to hide, and subsequently allowed Rove and others to delete thousands of emails, also where the same servers that hosted Blackwell's corrupt Ohio election results...Hmmmm? Fool us twice? (Google: Smartech scandal)

The dam is breaking the lies and spin of many Republicans is flying apart like the wheels fly off a cheap Walmart scooter. Where there is oversight of absolutely corrupted power it will come crashing down. It cannot suffer the light of day or the truth. The people are sick of the fear mongering, the secrecy, the lies about war, the torture, the outing of CIA agents who specialized in WMD’s, the unconstitutional signing statements, the politicizing of our government, the abandonment of science, the destruction of the environment and the abolishment of hundreds of regulations meant to protect us and our children. We are sick of the local and national GOP politicians fouling or water and land and using our taxpayer dollars for the benefit of the developers and the corporation, and most of all we are sick of Mammon/Money ruling our souls and owning our government.

We are sick of the tired and fright inducing slogans beat into our heads daily, the I don’t know’s, the I forget’s, and the I ‘by mistake’ lost 500,000 emails in violation of the Federal Presidential Records Act and probably the Hatch Act as well. Clinging to this sinking ship of fools will be other fools and a political party too loyal to do what’s right, and too blind to jump before it is too late. Do we have to wait for Bush to let the next major terror attack hit us before we wake up to his negligence and incompetence? Impeachment is the only patriotic thing to do. Dying in vain for lies is a horrible thing and must be stopped.

It is time for all good men and women to stand up and be ready to sacrifice for the earth and children! It ain't going to be easy destroying the old and birthing the new. A world of community, creativity, fun, and local food production is just (more...)
