Why did we vote?
The new Bush budget is for imperial gain, it is not for peace or domestic prosperity. Its about waging economic war on the American people under the guise of patriotic sacrifice, cutting big (good) government and the war on terror to profit corporate interests, while undermining the democratic benefits of social programs that historically have been reasonable, dependable, manageable and credible for Americans.
The deceptive reality of this fiscal plan is that of the government acting contrary to our nation and constitution. Accordingly, this budget is not for the people, but for political royalists demolishing every vestige of economic opportunity remaining in it for their gain. Our social security is paying for their failed wars, doctrines and plans.
Such reflects a false mammonistic government striving to reduce America to neo-feudalism, not for preserving egalitarian democracy. Consequently, Americans face two choices: 1) permit manufactured national destruction, or 2) support constitutional resurrection. Both pose risk, but the former mandates political despotism, while the latter heralds lawful freedom. Dont believe this? Wait and see.
Why did we vote in 2006? To choose our masters or mold our destiny? To remain passive followers or become powerful leaders? The challenge facing us is greater than our original independence, but face it we must, or our children will. We now know voting wont change government, so we must do more.
We must contact our representatives monthly, or nothing will change. For if they dont hear from us, theyll do what they please, sealing our fate as a nation. We must tell them to stop the political deceptions or else. We must tell them to pull out of Iraq and to impeach Bush and Cheney if they intend to attack Iran, or Western civilization will end.
Neither law and order conservatives nor cradle-to-grave liberals know whats happened to our country, because neither has the moral capacity to recognize theyve ruined it. U.S. Sen. Obama says our politics is too small, but that is what party politics will always be: political, not moral, and thus too small. We must be bigger than party politics to save our nation; we must silence party politics to regain our national freedom.
Americans, dont blame the parties, blame yourselves for failing your country. You look at government as the solution, when it will always be a problem, when you treat it like a father to a son. Government is no mystery. If you allow its failures, theyll be yours.
When will we stop being the children of party politics and start being the adults of our nation and Constitution? Are these parties more important to our country than we? No! But until we change them and our nation, the parties wont. Face it; the parties dont give a damn about our nation, because if they had, we wouldnt be here today, would we?
Paul Craig Roberts at CounterPunch.org, Feb. 5, 2007, in an editorial titled The U.S. and Israel, The Real Failed States, asked: What does democracy mean if elected leaders ignore public opinion? It means NOTHING, and yet Americans continue as if national disaster could never happen here. If you believe that, youre not thinking. You believe watching the news will change our nation. Watching changes nothing; only acting does.
But were afraid of common-sense truth. Were afraid to face the real terror confronting our nationthat of an unchecked political syndicate running roughshod over us, our elections and our Constitution. As a People weve become the moral shadow of our founding fathers, instead of retaining their light, yet we continue to preserve the political darkness engulfing us, instead of employing their constitutional light.
One can never find light by examining darkness, yet that is what our leaders insist we do with government. Is it any wonder, then, that everything we know about them is wrong? No, because those who ignore the truth are condemned to believe a lie. If you accept this, America, youll be greeting your Caesars with Morituri Te Salutant. At that point, dont cry to heaven when youve done nothing to change the earth. Thank you.
