Bush As Tyrant

I really hate it when a piece of news breaks on the weekend, too many people never see it and it is picked up by very few ancillary news organs. This is the case with a piece by Charlie Savage at the Boston Globe, which I happened to find originally in the Indianapolis Star, (a Midwest Gannett cage liner), on Bush and his Executive signing statements which serve to establish a de facto tyranny in this country. He has used these statements to circumvent Congress, our Republic and the law at least 750 times, serving to further the destruction of the Republican form of government which we supposedly have in this country.

Everytime he has set pen to one of these statements he has set himself above the law and spat in the face of Congress, the Courts, The Founders, The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the people of this country. Yet, too many people refuse to recognise the depravity of this administration and look at what George Bush is doing.

Yes, there are cries from certain corners to impeach Mr. Bush and there can be little doubt that he is deserving of it for his actions. But, Mr. Bush is also guilty of rendering aid and comfort to the the enemies of our country, its way of life and its form of governance by his continued destruction of the Republican form of government gifted us by our Founders. When one sets out to seize power in such a way that the very fabric of our nation is torn asunder, then the charge should not be something minor, as impeachment would lay upon the man. An Executive may be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanours but that may serve only to have them removed from office. Is that truly a just verdict for anyone who has damaged the very core of our nation and laid the groundwork for tyranny? Impeachment, something unlikely given the makeup of the Senate should be no more than a prelude to strip Executive Immunity from the officeholder in question; prior to being tried for the greater crime of treason.

Look to a list of some of his usurpations and tell me, in all good faith that he has not recreated many, if not most of the same complaints which our forefathers cited in our Declaration of Independence. If you cannot see them then I suggest that you have fallen victim to propganda and government school indoctrination. If these signing statements fail to anger you then you are probably part of the problem and not the solution.

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you and may posterity forget that ye were once our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
