It hit me out of the blue. The Democrats in Congress aren’t afraid of looking weak as the majority. They are ashamed for having been weak in the minority. Investigating BushCo and shining the light of day on this most corrupt of administrations exposes a Democratic minority without principles or courage. They are ashamed because their lack of action is one of the major factors in the world being as it is today.
Yeah. Ashamed. They don’t know how to push back at George W. Bush without exposing their lack of principle. How their going along to get along has made the lot of them complicit in perhaps the worst seven years this country has ever had.
They are ashamed that they kept their collective mouths shut when some of them must have had large, looming questions about the veracity of the intelligence on Iraq. They are ashamed that they didn’t fight the Faith-Based & Community Initiatives and instead, pandered to theocrats who really and truly want to legislate the Bible. Meaning they want to control, take over the country. This is not funny or crazy. They say it right out in the open and the Democrats, by keeping their mouths shut and eyes closed, have given these theocrats seven additional years to grow their influence. Democrats are ashamed that they pandered to false patriots who used this country of ours as collateral to fund a war on behalf of global corporate power.
The Democrats are ashamed that they let education turn into meaningless testing gambit to shut down public education so George W. Bush could argue for privatizing our schools and handing out yet more of our tax dollars to his cronies. The same with Medicare.
They are ashamed that they let George W. Bush and his minions get away with torture. TORTURE. AMERICA TORTURES. Dems are ashamed to even comprehend, imagine, put words to how many dead Iraqis there are. Not just dead. But how many destroyed lives and orphans and widows and people who have lost everything but their lives. Imagine it.
Heh. it’s like Bill Maher says… there are so many ways in which the Democrats have let us down, and so many scandals and ways in which George W. Bush has fucked up this country, it’s hard to keep up on the daily debacles.
I’m tired of listing all the assaults on America and the rest of the world. I am tired of waiting for the Democrats to wake up. I am tired of listening to fucking pundits on television tell me how Hillary’s campaign needs to be retooled. Because she lost in Iowa. And telling me if she doesn’t do well in New Hampshire or if the poll numbers say this, then it means that…. are you fucking kidding me??????????????????????????????????? I have no intention of voting for Hillary but I don’t want Jon Alter telling me what my future will be. STOP IT. Okay? Leave us alone. OKAY? Let us make our own decisions.
Damn it. There are so many things to be mad about. I have had a vacation here at DD. But I can see that will come to an end. I can’t avoid it… the same shit. The media telling me what will happen.
And the Democrats, like fools on the hill, sit in their shame. Afraid to do anything for fear of exposing how their silence has made them complicit in torture, death, and war. Complicit in turning profit into value and things of value into nothing. Complicit in eroding the our Constitutional freedoms by being silent on Supreme Court appointees. It’s enough to make you scream or vomit or break something. See, I could keep on listing and listing and ……………..
I wonder if that decision aligns with Nancy Pelosi’s idea of First Amendment… I will never get over this…
“If they were poor and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, they would be arrested for loitering, but because they have ‘Impeach Bush’ across their chest, it’s the First Amendment.”
So here’s my advice. Don’t let Barack Obama become the defacto nominee. Don’t allow Hillary’s campaign to be predicted off the stage. Fight for your right to vote for the nominee. And really. Don’t waste your vote. Vote your conscience. Vote your principles. Don’t worry about electability. Worry about the truth. We need to start acting out the truth.
Whomever you vote for. Whomever you believe in. I don’t care if it’s Ron Paul or Mike Gravel. Vote your core principles. And I’d respect in you in the morning if you voted for Dennis Kucinich or John Edwards.
Be OUT LOUD about restoring our core principles, our country, our Constitution, and the need to impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney. Stand up for law with justice, and demand our legislators defend our Constitution and our country. And tell them, scream at them to stand against the corrupted silence of complicity.
