Read about this stuff yourself…don’t take my word for it. if enough people know then perhaps when Bush implements his new “authority” and goes into Iran and tries to declare martial law here at home, the american public will rise up and the US military will stand down and refuse his orders. Will they do that if asked to turn their weapons on American Citizens? I don’t know…I think they are really our only hope though. Too many everyday citizens are asleep. another 9/11 type event orchestrated by him (black ops) or not could be the catalyst to set this all in motion. There’s a book written about 10 families that were in Germany through Hitler’s rise and they were asked how it happened and why they didn’t try to stop him. They all said the same thing…it was a series of slow subtle changes…nobody believed the opposition voices…they gave up personal rights for security etc. I will research & try to find that book if you like but the title escapes my at the moment. Thom Hartman (air america) talked about it on his show one day.
This quote is from a die-hard republican who worked for Reagan. He too fears for our democracy…his article is well worth reading.
“Only a diehard minority believes in the honesty and integrity of the Bush-Cheney administration and in the truthfulness of the corporate media.
Hitler, who never achieved majority support in a German election, used the Reichstag fire (a black op) to fan hysteria and push through the Enabling Act, which made him dictator. Determined tyrants never require majority support in order to overthrow constitutional orders.”
There’s also a thread on daily kos about it here: WARNING: A Real Dictatorship Coming!
Bush just signed an executive order that allows the government to seize assets of american citizens whom he decides are working against his efforts in Iraq. Congress has no input and citizens have no legal remedy. read the order yourself here.
yesterday’s Thom Hartman program was all about this too and he had several lawyers, former Nixon staff member John Dean and the republican guy I mentioned above Mr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, former Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Contributing Editor of National Review.
what is happening is no longer a democratic or republican issue. We are all Americans. Our duty & our job is to protect our constitution. any public office holder including the President takes an oath to uphold it. This president has broken this oath and this administration has been complicit. The only remedy is impeachment. The founding fathers didn’t use the word God in the constitution except in the Date. “the year of our lord…” the used the term impeachment SIX TIMES! They knew that unchecked power corrupts and that in order to preserve America we would need to use this tools in times of our history. our representatives will not use it on their own. they need to know the american public is demanding it. here’s what YOU can do…
Call, email or fax your representatives
Call Nancy Palosi and tell her to put impeachment back on the table
watch cspan, listen to air america and/or progressive media
stop expecting to hear the truth on mainstream news casts
join other concerned americans at protests (i’ll post many here and let you know when i hear about them…you’re welcome to do the same)
talk to people you know and help them find the truth
GOD(GODDESS) BLESS AMERICA
