Celebrate Our Freedom – Impeach Bush

July 4, 2007

It is nearly July Fourth, Mr. Bush, the commemoration of the moment we Americans decided that rather than live under a king who made up the laws, or erased them, or ignored them — or commuted the sentences of those rightly convicted under them — we would force our independence and regain our sacred freedoms.

We of this time — and our leaders in Congress, of both parties — must now live up to those standards which echo through our history. Pressure, negotiate, impeach: get you, Mr. Bush, and Mr. Cheney, two men who are now perilous to our democracy, away from its helm.
And for you, Mr. Bush, and for Mr. Cheney, there is a lesser task. You need merely achieve a very low threshold indeed. Display just that iota of patriotism which Richard Nixon showed on August 9th, 1974.

Resign.

And give us someone — anyone — about whom all of us might yet be able to quote John Wayne, and say, “I didn’t vote for him, but he’s my president, and I hope he does a good job.”

    I have to start watching Keith Olbermann! Great quote, I HATE when Bush abuses the American public’s patriotism to further his agenda! I just heard a quote on the news about his approval rating, and they compared it to his highest rating (I think it was 80 or 90%) right after the 9-11 attacks. It’s sickening that he actually benefitted from an attack against our country, and then abused the feelings that Americans had after the attacks to actually erode our freedom!!!!
