How contempt, sheer arrogance and subversion of our rule of law by the Bush administration has spawned the emergence of a national cry for Impeachment
Five plus years after George W. Bush and his PNAC-backed thugs stole the presidency and took hostage the Whitehouse; impeachment has finally entered the mainstream. A few weeks ago, President Bush kept grumbling how the main stream media was not reporting the good things coming out of Iraq. Desperate times require desperate measures, I guess. The rancid stench of this desperate move to again deflect and deceive, this time on the media, can be smelled from miles away now.
Bushs approval ratings have tanked, Americans are growing increasingly restless and disgruntled about Bushs war and more people are waking up to a perverse and psychotic Bush vision: A benevolent supremacy of world interference and control, harnessed by a pre-emptive war doctrine; the first of its kind for the United States of America.
There is no doubt that Bushs counterfeit administration has used every tactic from intimidation by fear, extortion, religion, deceit, prevarication and redirection to stave off the inevitable - that America now knows it was sold a bill of tainted goods! A sack full of mendacity that fleeced us of our tax payers dollars, shed the blood of our children and stole the lives of countless innocent people in the Middle East.
Make no mistake, America is sometimes slow to react, but eventually she catches on. As people slowly unwrap themselves from the flag the same flag Bush used to coronate himself with as emperor of the New American Century- there is an incendiary front that is sweeping across the nation. The upfront, candid truth that our current President violated the rule of law, repeatedly lied to us all and his condescension towards the Constitution warrant impeachment and removal from office immediately!
Impeaching and removing a sitting president is a very unpleasant, almost an unimaginable course of action for most Americans, as it symbolizes a failure for America. Impeachment conjures feelings of betrayal born of an act of incorrigible patriotic infidelity and a show of disgraceful weakness. However, the downright contempt, sheer arrogance and the audacity to subvert our rule of law, undermine our devotion for insidious purposes have galvanized an ever-growing portion of the population to join in the impeachment movement. We, as true Americans, categorically have had enough of the just trust me Bush administration.
There is a vital and warranted need for necessary dissent in a sea of hypocrisy and lies that radiate from the treacherous Bush regime. There is nothing more patriotic than engaging the dishonesty, deceit and corruption of a government that no longer represents the people whom elected it. The patriotic duty to petition the government of our grievances, seek remedies from wrong-doing and to abolish the government if it is corrupt or fails to no longer serve the will of the people.
Yes, George Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld and the rest of the PNAC signatories have been running game on America for over five years. We have been bullied, labeled unpatriotic, un-American, accused of aiding terrorists, dissected and forced to choose sides. All this while Bushs band of thieves ran rough-shod and unchecked looting through our national treasury, subverting the Constitution and throwing dead bodies of American soldiers on their pile of rumble in a wake of irresponsible chaos and destruction.
America, the old America, was just fine without Bush and we are tired of being constantly poked with 9/11 this, 9/11 that to elicit an emotion response. We get it; a few, rogue extremists high-jacked some planes, hit some buildings and harmed a lot of people. We are all deeply saddened, and want those actually responsible for it brought to justice. That being said, America never willingly signed up for pre-emptive, endless wars, an imperial president above the law, congressional corruption unlike anything we have ever seen in the past, leveraging three future generations of debt to the Chinese and being illegally spied on by our own government!
No, the game is up, the hoax is over, the deception has been laid bare and the bearings have been spun-out of the Bush misinformation machine to fool and frighten America. When Bush pumped us fool of bravado and hubris to sell his war he quietly snickered, caveat emptor- let the buyer beware. Well George, we are all now aware of what you have done, why you did it and we not only want our money back, but our country, too! Impeachment is just around the corner, your removal from office is closer than you think and the return of a peaceful country of modesty and restraint is already in progress.
Mr. President, you say you want the media to report the good? Well, I am proud to say they have! Just last month, on the front page of the Washington Post, the paper proclaimed the Anti-Bush cries are growing louder. Can you hear them? I can and they are thunderous, stronger and more powerful than ever! America now demands justice. Americans demand the return of their stolen civil liberties, accountability for your Constitutional abuses and insists on your impeachment and removal from office. No, Mr. Bush, you have abused this battered lady, that we call America, one too many times. You are not the Decider, We the People are, and we have assuredly decided it is time for you to go!
