When Things are This Far Down, it's Up to Us to RISE UP.
Don't Let It Bring You Down
By William Rivers Pitt
William Rivers Pitt taps into the utter and complete frustration and disgust over current American policies shared by thinking and caring Americans everywhere.
My only question is, given the depth of these feelings, when will we join together, rise up, and demand that this administration of crooks, cronies and morally bankrupt animals STEP DOWN, and if they won't do it voluntarily, DEMAND that they be IMPEACHED.
Never in the history of this country can I imagine an administration that has been so completely destructive to our democracy, our country, and to the rest of the world.
There is strength in numbers, folks, and we HAVE the numbers. Every recent poll indicates the majority of Americans are fed up with the policies of Bushco. We MUST join together and DEMAND change.
The question is HOW? I have given up on the Democratic leadership. Their heads seem full of nothing but "politics as usual", and while they hem and haw about the best middle-of-the-road whishy-washy strategy to regain seats in the next election--voting integrity remains in jeopardy all over the country--thanks to their inaction.
WE must do what Congress has failed to do. WE must demand a change NOW.
Progressive organizations are you listening? Is ANYBODY out there listening?
PITT: "...Since January 2001, we have lost faith in the idea that our votes matter, we have lost two towers in New York, we have lost an entire city in Louisiana, we have lost two thousand one hundred and twenty nine soldiers to Iraq, somewhere along the way we lost a whole pile of weapons of mass destruction those soldiers died trying to find, we have lost a substantial portion of our children's future by spending hundreds of billions of dollars so those soldiers could die far from home, we have lost our standing with the international community, and a good portion of the planet looks long and hard at us, wondering if we have also lost our minds.
Don't let it bring you down, though. We're staying the course, fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them here, spreading democracy, rolling with the noble cause, doing the Lord's work and saving Christmas, all at the same time. It's all good." More
