This is not a Christian country. This has never been a Christian country. I hope that this never becomes a Christian country. However, the Republican think tanks base much on the writings of Bernard Mandeville who was a real Satanist. Later Friedrich Hayek wrote about the economy ( Noble Prize ). He was greatly influenced by Bernard Mandeville. So there is a de facto Satanism to the system. People realise this emotionally. Hayek wrote The Road to Serfdom. This is road were tread. The problem is fascism not faith.

Very interesting - would love to have some references regarding this so I could discuss the subject with my friends. Do you have any books/articles that you could refer me to that would substantiate this as a well-researched fact?

Yes, I do. EVERYONE needs to read William Cooper's book "Behold a Pale Horse". He was an ex-naval intelligence officer for U.S. Navy. He wrote this book to warn the public about a conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution of the U.S. Who is named in the book written in the 90's? You guessed it, Daddy Bush and Colin Powell. And, guess what? William Cooper was assasinated by the Feds. This book is a MUST read. Get it together people, we are dealing with Satanists...

Thanks very much for the info. on the Cooper's book, Behold, A Pale Horse - will check it out.

IMPEACH "CHICKEN GEORGE"!

yes impeach bush arreast him and try him for misleading the american people and getting us involved in a war for empire

Bush has a classic socio-pathic anti-social personality disorder. He is without the capacity to identify and empathize with the plight of others. He is totally selfish and without a conscience. He lies, cheats and steals. All with a smirk on his face. He is surrounded by a column of crooks, thieves and sicophants. He is so dangerous that I fear if he stays in office we will lose our democracy totally to the "Corpocracy." Please do everything you can to hold this man accountable. IMPEACH him and then try him for treason and murder.

Bush and his cronies are war crmininals, chickenhawks, war profiteers, and international outlaws guilty of kidnaping, murder, and torture.
In colusion with the corporacy and its mainstream media propaganda organs, they are corrupting the minds of our children and the adults who are to weak minded to understand the truth.
ty

It's all about power, greed and endless monied corruption.
The only thing to do is throw Bush out of office. He is barring none the worst president we've ever had. He is our Hitler.

We are just as much to blame for this war as Bush and his junta!
Florida and Ohio...we let that happen like sheep!
Remember how the media destroyed Howard Dean during the primaries?
Kerry was a joke of a candidate!
Edwards is a kid!
Clark is probably a war criminal as well!
Kuscenich made Paul Tsongas look like John Edwards!
In 2008 are we going to support a populist candidate, or another ivy league, silver spooned, off message, cantilevered, pro war, pro corpocracy, pro nafta,pro oil, pro Israeli, uninterested in Africa loser?
Yes probably!

The citizens of Ohio and Florida came out in record numbers to throw the bums out of office. People don't respond like that to preserve the status quo. If there is someone to blame its Diebold and the Democratic Party. Diebold for fixing the election and the Dem's for their wimpy response to obvious vote fraud. That's what you get when two Bonesmen oppose each other.

why does this president think he can through stupid remarks to the press like "thats like a dog chasing his tail" we want answeres to iraq. WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND PULL OUR GUYS AND GIRLS OUT TO SAFETY?

you nailed it. the perfect profile of the coward CHIKEN GEORGE. i might add that he is also paranoid and insecure and thats why he has a need for control which really makes him a very dangerous person. i just dont understand the american public on their stupidity on not demanding that he step down and be tried by the world court for crimes agains humanity.

I am so discusted with the present administration. Evertime I turn the TV on, I am hearing or seeing some serious crime the admin. has commetted. I want an investigation to be held on the outing of the CIA person, Mrs Plane, and the yellow cake lie along with trator gate. I am fed up with the way the White House is run these days. We were told integrity was going to be brought into the White House; it is far worse then the Clinton days. How is Rove not in jail??? I don't think the country can take much more of the lies and deception!!!

do it now

This is the worst war crimes yet to have taken place, and I totally agree to have Congresswoman Lee's Resolution to disclose all the communications with Poodle Boi Tony Blair now also! The War Crimes Tribunal will prevail over dictatorship and wars of war criminals now. Americans deserve better than being kicked to the curb by such dictatorship.
Americans want an impeachment process to go swiftly now.

Heartfully,

Queen of Hearts~

I consider the lives of the innocent people killed in the invasion of Iraq as important as the lives of any other human beings, anywhere.
It's too bad that acts of terrorrism practiced by people w/ $ and influence are treated different from those of people who are poor & disenfranchised.

How soon we forget, the lies, how soon we forget, our American Currency on the ground next to the bodies of our Soldiers, how soon we forget, the children in arms conflict, how soon we forget this is a Bush War, how soon we forget this was an Oil War, how soon we forget Bush's campaign remarks, stating that American people of poverty are beyond help. How soon can we have an Impeachment, and how soon will we see a War Crimes Tribunal now? American's deserve better respect. We do support our Troops, and we do support our Freeedom, but not for it to be taken for granted by such war crimes, or war criminals. United We Stand! Bush's campaign was about compassion and hope? I think not! It is time to take dictators down in our world!

Heartfully,

Queen of Hearts~

Perhaps one thing needs to be said again, because for some reason, people know this but the huge consequences are not sinking in:

AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT LIED ABOUT A FOREIGN THREAT TO JUSTIFY PREEMPTIVE WAR.

The Iraq war is not history. It is happening right now. Americans and Iraqis are dying right now. We are a foreign occupying power right now. We are on the losing side of both this war and history right now.

I don't know about you, but I smell a traitor to the life and liberty of the American people. In fact, the stench is so noxious, it must be many traitors. Even past tyrants could not have been called such reeking traitors, because they did not have America's high ideals to serve.

Americans will be true to themselves and their country in the voting booth if they are given the right information. It remains to be seen if in this Orwellian age the media will resurrect themselves like the phoenix from the ashes of their own treasons.

But one thing is for sure: expecting government officials to account for themselves is like expecting a fox to feel guilty after dining on your chickens. It's not going to happen.

Somehow, we need to do it for them.

HUE questions need to be answered:

http://www.hugequestions.com/

Sadly, the "voting booth" you refer to brought us to this sad state of affairs in the first place. The votes in America are just as "fixed" as US war intelligence. Until THAT crime is remedied, everything else is just pissing in the wind. Bush was never elected president. Not once. Not twice.

Great resource, thanks!!!

I can't sleep at all, I am so sick of worrying about the people in the lower part of La. The people that are not getting talked about. The ones in Violet, La. ST Bernard Parish. The focus is on New Orleans which I love so Dear. This is my Birth place. The only reason I am not their I am in the NAVY and that brought me away.

All my friends and family are from ST. BERNARD to MISSISSIPPI not just one or the other. I don't know if some are alive or dead. The ones I do know lost everything, but they do have their lives God Bless them for that.

I am also sick of hearing its a black and white thing. Their more than just black out their. The people of ST Bernard are not even getting machined. Their are all race, black, white, Mexican, Asian and others. The community needs to bond together not divide. Its already divided enough.

GEORGE W BUSH IS THE MOST DESPICABLE TYRANT THE U.S. HAS EVER KNOWN.IT IS HIGH TIME HE IS IMPEACHED,TRIED, AND MADE ACCOUNTABLE FOR TREASON,GENOCIDE AND CRIMES AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION.

Your are correct! Government has failed us...Congress has allowed Constitutional division of power to fail.

The founders attempted to form a government of check and balances with three co-equal branches that would jealously keep in check the other two in order to preserve its on powers. Unfortunately the founders never counted on the formation of powerful political parties. If one party controls all three branches of government then where are the checks and balances? Compound this with party influence if not control of the MSM and major corporations, and the military officer corps and the result is fascism. Anybody who does not understand that our government is now controled by a fascist cabal of criminals is not paying attention.

The only question now is have we gone so far down the road to fascism that the remaining instutions of democratic government are incapable of throwing out the criminals. If the criminal fascist see that they are about to lose power will they resort to police state tactics (read Patriot Act) to preserve there power once and for all?

I am afraid we have gone so far down the road to fascism that civilised responses to this outrage will not be enough to turn the tide. We are very close to needing more agressive resistance to fascism, such as civil disobedience, nation wide strikes, etc and eventually armed resistance, I hope I am wrong.

The only thing it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing!

When this is all sorted out and if we are succesful in throwing out the fascists, serious thought needs to be given as to how to prevent one political party amassing such power in the future. There is no doubt in my mind that the Democratic Party is just as capable as the Republicans of abusing there power if they should gain control of all branches of the government.

Not only do we need to impeach Bush, but we need to reconfigure our democratic republic to respond truthfully to the best interests of all our citizens, not just the donor classes that are running our country. The truth is that our nation has slid into fascism because we have had our social fabric micromanaged for the last 40 years by the wealthy and corporations to maximize profits for themselves by enslaving the employee classes to: overwork, underpayment, undersleep, overcommit to consumerism, toxify with unregulated technologies, undernourish with poor quality nutrition, sit in traffic, stand in line waiting for any and everything, under-intellectualize, over-entertain, under-exercise, socially stigmatize expressions of political dissent, etc. And what do we get from this? A depleted and worn out human that's at the end of their rope and will submit to ANYTHING just for some relief. And what do they offer you for relief, but more of the same dose of the above medicine sending you increasingly down the same descending spiral.

My suggestion to all of you is to not wait for anyone else to do anything for you. The only way to get this madness to stop is for each individual to act daily in protest to the fascist abomination that is happening to us now. Wear signs and symbols that acknowledge/inform others of the the political realities of these times so that they can then feel support in doing so themselves. (I have a pair of IMPEACH BUSH socks that I wear every weekend and get a lot of positive feedback. And I wear a metal peace/earth pin everyday.)

There are plenty of peaceful options to transforming the world. ANY violence (even towards property) plays into the hands of the reactionaries and just brings on more repression. (For proof of this just look at the maniacal reaction to 9/11 that brings our entire nation to economic and social standstill, and kills over 100,000 innocent civilians in Iraq for a lie; as opposed to the passive responses to toxic industrial processes in Bhopal (19,000 dead) or "socially acceptable" risk taking of yearly auto accident deaths (38,000 last year at a cost of $230 billion (this is equivalent to 25% of our yearly tax income revenues)).)

The above processes are kept in place by our two party system because our representatives are bought and sold by the apparatus of the consumer culture, which inturn is fed by our participation in it through employment and consumer purchases. Our co-option in this process needs to be terminated by each of us. You don't need any meetings, any expensive and time-consuming get togethers, or hopeless appeals to the powers-that-be asking them to change. Act every second of every day when opportunity presents itself and make a gesture, or a purchase, or not-a-purchase, or join a protest or protest individually.

What I am trying to get at is that all the talk that goes on, good as it is, is just burning precious oxygen rather than defunding the existing consumer culture so that it no longer has any power to implement it's toxic reality product on our lives. The Blues have half-assed gone along with NeoCon dismantling of our Democracy of the Commons because they don't want to rock the boat of the donor classes (which they are member of). The Reds are an abomination to Mother Earth, which if they had there way would turn earth into a replica of Mars by 2105. The two parties don't offer any choices. They are plain and simply incapable of suggesting, or even understanding, the kinds of changes which are necessary to build an infinitely livable earth within our times. (I urge everyone to read the Green Party Platform for 2004 so they can actually come into contact with viable solutions to change. And the Earth Charter.)

Here is a list of possible actions that each person could do/advocate on their own to manifest positive change.

Lifestyle:

Buy only: green, organic, non-toxic (cars too), local grown, living-wage paying, pesticide-free, non-corporate, and things you will use within the year.

Wear/distribute sysmbols of dissent and suggestions for positive change daily if possible.

Live green every day: sleep 8 hours, eat balanced natural unprocessed food, drink 8 glasses or more of water, sweat exercise 1 hr.

Political:

Campaign finance and voter reform:

$100 per candidate, per registered voter, per year maximum.
No privately funded election campaigns.
Public TV voter channel with 5 minutes for each and every candidate.
No TV advertising.
Top 5 candidates in runoff and TV debates.
No contributions by companies or anyone other than a registered voter.
All lobbying of representatives must be done in public hearings only.
Verifiable paper trail, transaction, vote and result open to scrutiny by public consensus approved process with NO private company participation.

Tax Reform:

The book "Perfectly Legal" by David Cay Johnston documents the manipulation of our tax system over the last 35 years that has enabled a "donor class" of super-rich to benefit while the employee classes have lost our infrastructure. It is estimated that we loose about $200 billion every year in uncollected taxes because of it. There are numerous changes he proposes in the Conclusions chapter. I urge everyone to read them and demand their representatives make the changes.

Run for office and be uncontaminatable by economic influences.

---------------------------------

If we implement the above vote and tax reform we can detoxify the political environment and get some control over our democratic process. If we spend our money and time on green, non-toxic products, services and jobs, those systems will begin to dominate rather then the currently toxic ones.

I awake with fear every day wondering, and worrying what horrific act Bush is going to inflict on us next. He will stop at nothing to complete his personal agenda to destroy the world. He needs to be impeached immediately, without hesitation.

This statement is right to the point. The country has been scammed and screwed. It's time to impeach George Bush.

I AGREE AND SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE I TALK TO ABOUT THIS IDIOT AND HIS FOLLY AT THE EXPENSE OF SO MANY YOUNG LIVES SQUANDERED.

TYRANT? Define for us please what you consider a tyrant. ALSO what part of the CONSTITUTION he violated, who he killed, and how he did it.
YOU apparently are so upset that Bush beat your guys in 2 elections, that you want to undo the elections.
At anyrate, keep up looking stupid.

This man ( supposed to be a believer )George W. Bush, has lied to
Americans, and Congress about nuclear weapons, WMD. This is something that we all know. His lies has taken 1800,and counting, lives of our Boys and Girls in uniform, not counting the ones wounded. Saying he supports the troops, yet taking away the veterans rights from the ones that are in the National Guard, and Reserves, by saying they are Volunteers, and yet some of them make the sacrifice that this President was not willing to make.
Go ahead, call him a Christian,
I think we should be looking more into 9/11, like why, when all Planes
were grounded, Why was one allowed to fly Saudies out of this country.
without ever being questioned.
You say he isn't a TYRANT. You give me the definition.
PLEASE FOR THE GOOD OF THIS COUNTRY IMPEACH HIM, anh HIS CREW!!!

OPEN YOUR EYES. CAN'T YOU TRY TO SEE THE REAL PICTURE. IT IS FOLKS LIKE YOU WHO ARE FOLLOWING THIS IDIOT.

We had a minority president last term. I still believe the exit polls for this term (and so do a lot of others). Why should I not be upset? Machiavelli explained why leaders make war. Add the desire to control oil production to this. Open your eyes rather than call people names because you are not articulate enough to explain how, on a moral basis, Bush should be leading a country that is losing it's basic freedoms. / In this country, I am afraid to give my name on some e-mail, but I have yet to go the "anonymous" route.

SOUNDS TO ME THE ONLY ONE THAT STANDS STUPID IS YOU.
EITHER YOU CAN'T READ OR YOU ARE DEAF, DUMB AND BLIND.
WE SHALL ALL SAY A PRAYER FOR YOU AND THE REST OF THE REPUBLICONS.

This attitude is still prevalent among 40% of the Americans ... I am very disturbed by this. The German peoples in the '30's were led like sheep to kill 9 million people. This is easier than I thought possible, for King Stupid still has 40% remain blind, deaf, and loyal to one of the most evil men of this century. I pray hard every night.

The only one looking stupid is you. Have you any idea how many innocent people have died in Iraq or how many US troops have died in the process of trying to find "weapons of mass destruction" (only one of the lies used by Bush & his administration) - are you so stupid that you believe Bushes lies about that, maybe you believe making jokes about innocent people dying while showing a slide show is perfectly normal behaviour....this has nothing to do with winning elections or sour grapes, I sugest you wake up from your dream state, do some homework & stop living in denial.

I am not the original poster but I think I can help you with your quest to understand the US Constitution better...

Launching a first strike attack on a sovereign nation WITHOUT a congressional declaration of war is patently against the US Constitution.

Given that, even if he did NOTHING else that was unconstitutional (which he did* - see below), this illegal and unconstitutional act directly caused the deaths of members of the United States Military, members of the Iraqi military, Iraqui civilians, and many other people of other nationalities through the fighting of this unjust and unconstitutional war.

As for the election, who is to know who won. It is hard to say when the machines that are in charge of counting the votes are manufactired by a company who has publicly indicated their commitment to President Bush's re-election campaign and whose machines leave no paper trails and offer no receipts to voters that their votes were registered. It is clear, however, that the majour players in these events have no qualms about breaking national and international law. So the likelihood of them having the ethics to run a fair and legitimate election is low. Until those machines can be verified, it is (at best) unlikely that the recent election is legitimate 100%. That being the case, it is hard to say if it was won or not since it is impossible to know the actual numbers.

* I am not going to spend all night educating you on the consitution of your own country (that is why they have community colleges and I suggest that you enroll yourself in a class if you truly are intereted in imoproving yourself so that you can answer these constiutional law questions for yourself), but President Bush has done many more unconstitutional acts than merely the above offense and the related killings of innocent Americans, Iraquis, and others. For several examples (though not the b,iggest by any means - just the ones coming to mind and easily grasped by someone of your seemingly limited knowledge of national issues and laws), please see the Patriot act which changes the Constitution so that prisoners being held no longer neccessarily have the right to know the crimes for which they are imprisoned (this is called habeus corpus in case you wanna google it for yourself and save yourself teh $7/credit at the community college). Additionally, and equally disturbing are violations of the Bill of Rights, international law, and other signed treaties and agreements which reduce our credibility as a nation. To view the most recent presidential inauguration and a very clear explanation and illustration of the illegal use of military against the people of the United States themselves (similar to what Saddam Hussein is accused of by President Bush), please see this interesting digital video clip - scroll down to "Check point Dubya":

Require the President and directing the Secretary of State to transmit to the House of Representatives not later than 14 days after the date of the adoption of this resolution all information in the possession of the President and the Secretary of State relating to communication with officials of the United Kingdom between January 1, 2002, and October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq

According to sirotablog, www.workingforchange.com , here are the names of the 15 democrats who voted for CAFTA

The 15 Democratic sellouts were:

Melissa Bean (IL)
Jim Cooper (TN)
Henry Cuellar (TX)
Norm Dicks (WA)
Ruben Hinojosa (TX)
William Jefferson (LA)
Jim Matheson (UT)
Greg Meeks (NY)
Dennis Moore (KS)
Jim Moran (VA)
Solomon Ortiz (TX)
Ike Skelton (MO)
Vic Snyder (AR)
John Tanner (TN)
Ed Towns (NY)

It's going to be up to us to see to it that these people get changed out next election. The CAFTA vote may have actually benefitted us in a roundabout way. It clearly identified the enemy within, that malignant portion of our body that needs to be excised. We need to start now and work for the election of dems to replace these shysters in next year's congressional elections. We need to replace the foul ones with sound ones. And we need to change the complexion of the House overall. With a democratic majority, impeachment is possible. If you did not hear Liz Holtzman's case for impeachment laid out at the town hall meeting in NYC on July 23, you can read the text at http://www.thenation.com/doc.mhtml?i=20050718&s=holtzman Everyone should read and understand what she says, and then tell as many people as you can. We can put these criminals behind bars!

Magnetic Ribbons and the Yellow Cake of Faith

When we start from deluded sleep
at last, and know the dream
for dream, embraced en masse...
When bells that rang victorious
hang mute, their tarnished claims
ignored in disrepute,
and bitter sons, having been all
they could be, can't wish back innocence
or the leg below the knee...

(The brash regime trims reason
from its ranks, its black guard
in the street, protecting flanks.)

Then will we heed the schemers'
gloating leer? "There's no future
for any of you here."
So row on row, with hand
in trembling hand, it's come to this:
we dreamers better stand.

reprint this poem and post it throughout your communities with my blessing!

YOUR POEM IS GREAT. YOU HAVE TO BE A WRITER. IT IS A POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST BUSH AND CO. I PRAY EVERY DAY THAT WE WILL GET OUT OF THE SEVENTH CIRCLE OF HELL BUSH GOT US INTO. KEEP WRITING...

Why is he called George Bush? How about Adolf Bush, Our Fuhrer?
Power-tripping, greed for oil and land, arrogance....the list goes on and on!
Bush must be impeached. No, Cheney cannot replace him. THAT man is even scumier.

May I suggest to everyone to purchase a book entitled, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man written by John Perkins. The most informative book written yet on the truth of why so many wars have been waged against third world countries and why the US is a sinking ship. Mr. Perkins tells his own story as an economic hit man and the sham of macroeconomics imposed on indigenous populations all over the world. A must read. Carmen

I agree. I read the book too and recommend it whenever I can.

Get him out. Surely we've had enough of his lies and deceit.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM
REPUBLICANS WENT AFTER BILL CLINTON FOR ... WHAT.. WHAT I SAY FOR SEX
THESE MAGGOTS HAVE LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND TO CONGRESS WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU SENATORS WHO SERVE THIS COUNTRY WE ELECTED YOU NOT BUSH
YOU WORK FOR US NOT BUSH DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY NOT WHAT IS RIGHT FOR BUSH .... DO YOUR JOBS..... THIS BUSH ADMIN. KILLED INNOCENT IRAQ PEOPLE KILLED OUR BOYS FOR OIL

IMPEACH NOW NO MORE TALK

E.N.O.U.G.H................................ OF LIES AND DECEIT

E.N.O.U.G.H. E.N.O.U.G.H............

impeach bush! he and his policies are destructive to the planet!

It was 2004 and the battle for the White House was in full swing. The very idea that non-violent evolutionary regime change might be possible in this country was nothing less than intoxicating. Could this country re-elect the puppet administration that had stolen the election four years prior. Unthinkable. Even the most politically heterogeneous groups must have surely recognized the transparent sophistry that had been masquerading as sound Government policy. Surely malignancy so overt could not be paraded as truth, justice, the American way. For the first time since 1974, a time at which I was not even of voting age, I became personally politically active within the Democratic Party. Not since the bitter, disheartening defeat of George McGovern by another such deceiptful and duplicitous re-elected President had I become more involved than simply casting my vote on election day - and sometimes not even doing that much. But this time it had to be different. I couldn't accept that we were doomed to repeat our mistakes over and over again. And I felt the call, the call that said each of us must take a stand, because to take no active position at all is in itself to take a stand even if only passively. As Howard Zinn stated it so aptly, "You can't be neutral on a moving train." Or if you prefer, Lewis Carroll's, "we must run as fast as we can just to stay in the same place," dour as that pronouncement may seem. Inaction, is in itself action, a statement. So I gathered my resolve to run even faster than Lewis Carroll's Alice, and became a committed delegate for Wesley Clark, the candidate whom I believed at the time had the best chance of defeating the "hollow tree" of a President residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

But history did repeat itself, as you well know. Amongst many other contributory factors, while we had our eye on Florida they sucker-punched us with Ohio. Clearly the successful bank robber does not hit the same bank in consecutive robberies. Another bitter defeat. Another retreat from all things political for me. What's the point? They win. But perhaps it's not over just yet. Sometimes history should repeat itself. Picture George W. Bush standing at the door of a helicopter on the White House lawn in simulacrum of Richard Nixon's dishonorable departure from his corrupt and foul Presidency. It won't be easy this time; they've had decades to build the necessary apparatus to put the brakes on our Constitutional right to remove a nefarious pretender to the Presidency from office. But it may yet be possible. Our world cannot be so completely Orwellian that day is night, wrong is right and we're all equal, but some of us are more equal than others. As a loyal constituent of District 30 I urge you to lend your name in support and co-sponsorship of H. Res. 375 of the 109th congress, Requesting the President and directing the Secretary of State to transmit to the House of Representatives not later than 14 days after the date of the adoption of the resolution all information in the possession of the President and the Secretary of State relating to communication with officials of the United Kingdom between January 1, 2002, and October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq.
