A letter to America

Hello everyone:

I have some thoughts and comments about the present state of our country.

Over the last several months, I have read several books that have looked at, analyzed, and criticized the dictatorial oligarchy that is the Bush Administration and its powerful industrial, corporate, mining, and financial buddies. I have realized that the United States has been in dire straits after September 11, 2001, but the extent of the totalitarianism displayed by Bush and Company really gave me a sonic blast-like shock.

There are at least 5,000 to 7,000 people dead - from janitors to soldiers - because of the deceptions, lies, and political and personal ambitions of the Administration. From September 11 to Afghanistan to Iraq, and on and on and on, the blood has accumulated as collateral for the Administration's power trips.

The current Administration has done its very best to mangle, tear asunder, or annihilate: our Constitutional rights, our freedoms and liberty, our privacy, America's standing in the world, the economy, the environment and ways of protecting it, the healthcare system and Medicare, Social Security, sound education and student development, the quality and safety of the agriculture industry and our food and water supply, proper judicial procedures, the peoples' right to know what their "duly elected" government is really doing. This is just a short list.

The way in which the Administration has imposed its whims and will over the entire country - and certain parts of the world that don't need mentioning -, in a seemingly carte blanche manner, is very frightening and disturbing. It is troubling that a country founded on a premise and a philosophy of democratic, citizen-run government can devolve into a shell of its former self, with dangerous, avaricious, and bloodthirsty individuals and groups filling the void. On the outside, everything looks peachy keen. When one gets to the heart of the matter, however, they can see the slow, painful, and agonizing death of the greatest country that ever was. (I say this not out of arrogance - I hate arrogance - but as a person fortunate and lucky enough to live in this country.)

Those that truly care for their fellow citizens and for their country must take a stand - a peaceful one at that - to rid themselves of an oppressive regime that seeks not only to leave its mark on the present, but the future as well. This plan may seem unattainable, yet think back to what occurred in Lexington and Concord in early 1775. I would think those ordinary men - albeit with muskets - who lined up opposite the Redcoats and stared them down would have been quite nervous and apprehensive, perhaps knowing full well that they may die or be arrested and detained indefinitely. Thanks to their fortitude and self-sacrificial efforts, as well as those who began the American Revolution, a wondrous idea called the United States was born.

We, the American people, have been through tough times and dark episodes before in the history of our country. We're still here. As we are in another one of those difficult times - a time of oppression, anxiety, and needless war - we must once again come together for the sake of all the things we cherish and for the sake of all the things we admire about the United States. The Bush Administration, and its enforced legacy, can be defeated ... but only if we want to defeat it. Knowing the American people, we will.


We have no fate except what we make for ourselves.

It is time to water the tree of freedom with the blood of tyrants.

I agree that as North Americans we have the responsibility of standing up and defend our constitution that is been corrupted according to Bushe's interest. I admire how other countries would not take this type of abuse and would go to the white house and over throw their president. Peru, chile and many other countries have done it, because the people unite for a common cause. This country seems to be made up on one common cause,"conformity." Everyone is happy with their comfort zone and as long as it does not affect them directly, nobody does anything about it. Hopefully many will read your letter and wake up from a zombie state of mind to reality.

Don't forget, USA4EVER, that the Bush Administration and the NeoCons who are the TRUE rulers of this country also planned and carried out the 9/11 fake "terror attack". I am surprised you did not include that in this particular blog entry. THEY DID IT. They benefitted from it and it was very conveniently timed, so was therefore an inside job.

The evidence for direct government involvement in 9/11 and their intentional cover-up is absolutely irrefutable, and to not include this information is just not right. Don't be afraid to share the facts behind the 9/11 inside job. It's your patriotic duty!!!
