As I repeat ad nauseam, I am an Independent, but in 2008 I cast blue. Valerie Plame’s lawsuit
against the Bush Administration got dismissed yesterday. Although tossing the case, U.S. District Judge John Bates said the lawsuit raises "important questions relating to the propriety of actions undertaken by our highest government officials."
Oh really? Who appointed Bates?
George W. Bush.
Bates agreed that federal law protects Cheney and his demonic sidekicks from being sued for actions taken as part of their official duties. WHAT?! Does this country have a constitution at this point? Oh, yes, except for du Fuhrer Cheney.
The pendulum swings, and Supreme Emperor Cheney (Bush who?) has pushed the pendulum hard, raking in $40 Billion a month for his friends with the blood of our children, suspending habeas corpus, breaking law after law after law.
Will Overlord Cheney grant his subjects permission to have an election in 2008? Why not dissolve the Supreme Court and the Congress? Between the attorney firings, the lies about Iraq, ignoring military expertise, obscene corporate welfare (oil, pharma...), the blatant effort to shut down oversight departments, the true colors emerge, and we see a criminal
. We face a constitutional crisis worse than the Saturday Night Massacre
As horrible as the beginning of the 21st century has been, I am actually optimistic. My optimism sees this colossal atrocity as a painful inoculation. Yes, it makes us sick, weak, and sore for a period of time. Thousands have died and many more are damaged, and I don't just mean physically. The astute understand, and in a few years if goodness prevails EMDR
will become a household word.
The national debt defies comprehension, and how long is it going to take and what expenditures are we looking at even it we started to turn the Iraq faucet off TODAY?
Only Abraham Lincoln, with God's help, had to play the biggest hand and use the loyalty of the military to hold this nation together, placing the constitution on hold for the sake of saving a nation. One of the finest human beings to walk on this planet, Lincoln saved this country.
Dick Cheney is no Abraham Lincoln. He does not have the military. He has the loyalty of robber barons Halliburton, Exxon, and their ilk. Tick Tock, and 2008 looms. The last election gave the democrats eyes and a set of brakes. The next election will give them a steering wheel and a gas pedal.
Time will tell what this country chooses to be about. Until shown otherwise, I am going to believe that Cheney has unleashed forces beyond his comprehension, a backlash of unprecedented proportions screaming, "No!" to his tyranny serving the richest one-tenth of one percent of this nation.
The Nazis took a country too far in certain direction. I exaggerate intentionally to distinguish thematic elements. Cheney is du Fuhrer. Those aligned with him are on a collision course with Nuremburg. It will be interesting to see how the country digests Dick Cheney telling his increasingly pathetic lapdog we call our president who to pardon, including himself of all and everything.
In 2008, 100 percent of my votes, my contributions, and my voice, stand behind BLUE
. I want to see the GOP torched beyond recognition for its support of this bloody, malignant regime. Then, hopefully, something worthy of this country will rise from the ashes.
