Thats exactly my point.
If we get another CFR elitist in office, all this will become a reality.
This is why I feel that this election is without a doubt the most important election in the history of the United States.
I couldn't agree more as a matter of fact, this president has gotten me so involved in politics, I have been writing letters to congress and actually
had several answer me. My brother a very strong Bush supporter is no longer speaking to me for the attacks he has seen me make on boards like this.
I devote a lot of time to writing and much of it is political.
If we get a real President and these things get reversed or wiped off the books entirely, then we have gained some ground.
This I'm afraid won't be happening, for one, getting certain rights etc, restored doesn't gain anything it just brings us back where we have
already been. Secondly I am very un-happy with the choices for both party Rep and Dem. I see this as always a problem being that one has to be a
multi millionaire to even get a foot in the door when running for President. That weeds out the creme of the crop for a variety of reasons other
then money as the only symbol of what a successful person is which often gets confused with leadership skills.
Third , I am afraid the Democratic party who before they got swept into office, the aftermath Bush dubbed the "thumpin", have been as loyal as a
Labrador. The once vitriolic diatribe of Nancy Pelosi has become a whisper if not a whimper of an obsequious yes woman who should NOT be re-elected
just for that reason. When she said impeachment is off the table I thought,, wow they got to her too.
The bottom line is the entire political system is a mess and when it is like that, it can't fix itself. WE have to do it.
WE, I mean, YOU, ME, US and WE, have to FIX what is wrong with it and that cannot be done without impeachment hearings. Impeachment and the options
for it were put there by the framers for JUST this kind of situation, this kind of administration and this kind of federal Government.
If we don't start ORDERING our elected public servants to do there damn job the tasks they promised during there campaigns but never delivered after
elected then we have no one to blame but ourselves. We need to educate our kids make politics more important an issue then Brittany Spears and if the
Media won't start giving us the REAL news, we need to TURN OFF THE NEWS. I think we need to teach them how we want to be treated and so far we have
taught them that we will bitch and whine but no one registers to vote, no one volunteers to stand over there shoulders and make sure everyone you work
with counting votes is someone you would keep honest. Getting involved is more then what we type on these boards. Those that claim what we say on
these boards are a waste of time are just as much a waste of time to read there posts that voice such opinions. People get a lot of data from others
but that isn't enough.
When we have a two party system as broken as this one is, you can safely assume Simon Cowel could devise a better format for finding the "Next Great
One of the first things we need to do is get RID of ALL incumbents and REALLY shake them up. We saw how the media said "The American Public has sent
a strong message to Congress in this last election voting most Republicans out." Well apparently it wasn't strong enough. Bush asked for another
76 Billion in aid to Iraq and without much resistance from house Democrats, he got it again and again,, and AGAIN, and will most likely AGAIN. It has
gotten so bad that when Congressman Robert Wexler moves to subpoena Harriet Meyers to testify before hearings regarding the lies Cheney and BushT have
made for so much of the trouble we are having now, he was told NO.
This and the Supreme Court not hearing the landmark case for We the people vs. the United States, have made clear, the direction this government is on
and if WE,, not them BUT WE, don't stop them,
we are going to end up,
where we're headed.
Take a Guess.
