The World Can't Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!
Mobilize for November 2, 2005!

Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights. Your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it. Your government puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

Your government is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

Your government suppresses the science that doesnÕt fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.

Your government is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.

Your government enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

People look at all this and think of Hitler — and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.

Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge, and people sense this.

There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing." People who steal elections and believe they're on a "mission from God" will not go without a fight.

There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into "leaders" who tell us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, and actually serves to demobilize people.

But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn — or be forced — to accept. There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it.

And there is a way. We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world. We need more than fighting Bush's outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history.

To that end, on November 2, the first anniversary of Bush's "re-election", we will take the first major step in this by organizing a truly massive day of resistance all over this country. People everywhere will walk out of school, they will take off work, they will come to the downtowns and town squares and set out from there, going through the streets and calling on many more to JOIN US. They will repudiate this criminal regime, making a powerful statement: "NO! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!"

November 2 must be a massive and public proclamation that WE REFUSE TO BE RULED IN THIS WAY. November 2 must call out to the tens of millions more who are now agonizing and disgusted. November 2 will be the beginning — a giant first step in forcing Bush to step down, and a powerful announcement that we will not stop until he does soÑand it will join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.

This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, they will to try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.

The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.

These next days are crucial. The call you are reading has to get out to millions right away — on the internet, passed out as flyers in communities, published as ads in newspapers. DO NOT WAIT!! GET ORGANIZED!! If you agree with this statement, add your name to it!!! And do more than that: send it to friends, get them to sign it, organize a meeting, take it to your church, your school, your union, your health club, your barber shop, to concerts and libraries and family gatherings, everywhere you go. Raise money, lots of money. Get people together, make plans to be there on November 2, and to build for it.

The world can't wait! Drive out the Bush Regime! Mobilize for November 2!

We need people like Cindy Sheehan to hold the GOP's feet to the fire and get we the people back on line again. We must get our troops home, like today! Get rid of every GOP Senator and Congress member.

I have never felt so discouraged or disgusted about where this country is headed under the Bush Crime family's leadership. The "I have a dream" poster with pictures of Bush and Cheney behind bars--that should be a reality.

Get him out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

please, dont go to the extreme de-legitimizes the correctness of the contention that this Bush administration is corrupt and needs to be prosecuted criminally...the only way to civily exact real change is from within...and the casting out...not assailing from the outside...the wheels turn slowly...but they are turning and there will be punishments meted out to those resposible for this disaster in Iraq that has plunged the world into worldwide chaos...
Peter Brown

How do you change from within when those within refuse to change? How many sons and daughters are you willing to see destroyed waiting for the wheels to turn? When did loving your country become the extreme left?

What George W. Bush has done is an affront to the American People; and it is up to the American People to say so, loud and long, until there is a change. It is our duty to our Country.

While I am of the left, pressuring from outside the "system" shouldn't be denigrated by anyone. Rosa Parks worked outside the system. Father Daniel Berrigan worked outside the system. Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon papers outside the system (which indirectly led to Watergate I should add). The People of the Phillipines and Bolivia ousted unjust regimes by mobilizing through People's Power outside the system. And of course, our own revolution was clearly outside the system. We must all think about how we can undermine the pillars of support for the war machine. Popular education, mass demonstrations, mass direct actions/civil resistance, and YES, electoral and lobbying efforts will work, but we ALL must increase the scope and commitment of our activism to build this movement.
If you want to call that "extreme left" that's fine, but it is tried and true. We can bring this criminal regime down.
Key dates upcoming include the:
November 2nd World Can't Wait, Drive Out the Bush Regime Mobilization. This looks like it is gonna be huge. If they won't impeach, we'll show them in the streets.

November 17th National Youth and Student "NOT YOUR SOLDIER DAY OF ACTION"

November 18th National "STAND DOWN DAY" of direct actions. Take a risk!!! Get Arrested!!! That is the least we can do to show our solidarity with the Iraqi people (the majority of whom DO oppose the occupation, which you wouldn't guess from mainstream media coverage).

Lets get it started in here.

A patriot's duty is to defend his country against its government. It is imperative that true patriots stop this theocracratic, facist regime in its tracks. NOW!

Keep on keepin on, America! We can make a difference if we really wanted to! Protest everywhere, get people motivated. The only way to change the status quo is if we stand united and fight these bullies!

This is a reply I recieved from my Colorado Senator:

"Thank you for contacting me about our country's leadership. I appreciate you taking the time to write.

I do not believe that the President or any members of his cabinet have
acted in any manner that deserves impeachment. I do believe that
President Bush has truthfully stated the reasons to go to war in Iraq. Indoing so we have maintained a coalition with many other countries
throughout the world, including Britain. I do feel that the President has done a good job at trying to rebuild Iraq. It will not be an easy or quickly resolved task, but we will do our best to help Iraq to become a stable and productive country.

Thank you for writing to share your concerns. I look forward to hearing from you again. If you would like more information on issues important to Colorado and the nation, please log on to my website at

Wayne Allard
United States Senator"

Our Senator's are not listening to us! We need to do this on our own. Stand behind Cindy Sheehan and others and form a massive revolt that will rock our corrupt White House!


Do you know where there will be a walk, in the Denver area?


I got the same response when I contacted my rep...We have to protect Cindy and Fitzgerald...with our outrage until those in DC fear us is our government not theirs...and they don't want to comprimize with us...they want to dictate their will....just like all the bad regimes of history

There is abundant justification for US citizens to put an impeachment petition in process.

Here is a fitting title for the Bush Administration,



I love it, but it's too, too kind!

We've got the rascals on the run, and this is no time to let up. Have you seen bush lately? He looks as if he's been run through a rock crusher. Forget all the baloney about impeachment; bush's rubber stamp "congress" will never allow that. Shrubya MUST be forced to resign. Thus defanged, he can be prosecuted, along with all his stooges, for their manifold crimes, and then imprisoned. I'd like to see anybody try to pardon this sorry lot.

Keep the pressure on the rascals

Not only is Chicago's South Side waiting for a victory in the the World Series, we are waiting to witness the day when Bush and his cabal of criminals are driven out of office. I am so excited about the World Can't Wait -> Drive out the Bush Regime mobilization! I hope everyone will look for a way to participate in their community on 11/2 to launch a unified grassroots effort to drive out this criminal regime.

I think I could be the missing link in all this treachery. Please, someone contact me. The gov. has been monitoring my activities for I don't know how long. The evidence is on

I need your help!!!!

They lied about Iraq and WMD's. They lied about torture. They hate poor people. They hate old people. They cheated to win the elections. They don't think you have a right to disagree or have different views of faith then they do. And they have no conscience.
They are hatemongerers and thieves and those that support them are just more of the same or just plan gullible.
They will not stop until Amerika is just another third world country living in the filth of polluted land, water and air.
And then the 1% that owns this contry and all of the wealth will just move somewhere else.
And the Bush has got to be one of the most arrogant, ignorant men I have ever heard speak in public.

Using tax payer money to bus highschool kids and against the law to take them out of class to peotest your cause is dispicable!!!
