I stated no such thing. I stated that it is not possible to approach Bush. I tried, me and about 800 of my closest friends tried. We marched right
up to his driveway in Crawford, Texas. Some were arrested. While I wasn't arrested that day, I have been arrested for protesting before. It
doesn't frighten me.
I am out there trying. Now if enough people will join me maybe we can make it happen. Here is one of the major problems: weapons. The government
has better weapons than we do. Being maced or gassed will definitely slow you down, and although you can throw a gas canister back at one who threw
it at you, it really solves nothing. We would have to resort to firearms and explosives. Again, the government is much more well armed than the
citizens. We would have to commit ourselves to a course of action that was more bloody, violent, and surprising than any authority was prepared to
handle in order to remove Bush from office.
Then what? Cheney would step up. If he were killed, yet another greedy bastard indistinguishable from Bush would step up. After him would be
another, and another.
I am left believing that what would be required is to completely dismantle all power structures in this country so that something new could be built.
Just how one could go about undoing an entire country, its elite, its power structure, its way of conducting business, and then to completely rebuild
a new nation...
I don't know how. I know that something must be done so I try everyday to change what I can. I work within the system and outside of it, doing
everything possible - everything I can think of to stop the lunacy and violence being committed in my name.
