There are still True Sons within our government, but they need the support of the people
and OUR pens must be raised in support.
It has taken continued pressure from the public to open the Rove case and to investigate
the Downing Street Memo's.
In my humble opinion, to focus on a particular misdeed is almost to entirely miss the point.
Waging a grossly unpopular war is but a single manifestation of what is wrong with our system, under a single administration from the vast pool of
elitists who consider themselves privlidged or perhaps even entitled to be the ruling class.
Shall we rid ourselves of Bush and replace him with some other party-backed elitist and congratulate ourselves on being like the Sons of Liberty?
Certainly not. If partisan attacks are what you call "it has begun" then I'll have no part in whatever "it" is.
My dream, if I were a great enough man with great enough support to accomplish it, would be to see the parties fall. My dream would be to build a
constitutional government that rules according to the will of the people and can never again presume to drag the American people kicking and screaming
into grotesquely unpopular actions of whatever kind, military or otherwise. My movement, if indeed I had the power to move a nation, would be not to
topple Bush but to topple the whole ruling class which dares to act as if we could not be trusted with power over our own futures. Above all, I wish
for a government that would no longer view the common man as if he were merely an assett for the all important processes of production and
I'd like to know the names of your "true sons" because IF they are wealthy partisan hacks with no aspiration to a constitutional revolution then
they are true bastards in my book.
Edit to add that very important IF. I meant to put it in their originally but messed up.
