No Surprises From Bush Speech
Bush regime must go
Bush blames the “war on
terrorism” for the country’s escalating deficits and the war with Iraq.
In his State of the Union address he crowed that we are safer because of
his war. Has there ever been a
President so out of touch with reality? He
uses 9-11 and the war on terrorism as an excuse for our ailing economy and the
deaths of innocents when it is really his own doing.
Our economy was fine three years ago.
Sure, there was a small recession that was correcting over-priced stocks
– nothing that lower interest rates and higher taxes for the wealthiest 1%
couldn’t fix. We also needed more
stringent regulations of big business. Nothing
short of this would have regained the confidence from the American people in our
stock “mocket”. It’s a
mockery that in times when white-collar crime is becoming “business as
usual” we are loosening up laws that are meant to ensure these economic
terrorists do not take advantage of their employees and investors.
Clinton had a healthy mistrust of
big business, even though he knew they must have the freedom to conduct their
business. Bush, on the other hand,
is beholden to them. He owes them
for his election, and for his millions that he, and virtually his entire cabinet
made before their regime took over.
It is ironic that Bush justifies the attack of Iraq on terrorism.
We have yet to seen the correlation.
In fact, it is now proven that Bush’s regime purposely manipulated old
evidence (data mining) to justify this war that was planned from the first day
of their reign – even lying to Congress which is a crime.
Does anyone believe that we would be less safe if we didn’t attack
Iraq? The truth is that we would be
safer if we didn’t start this war of greed because we would not have allowed
coalitions with our allies to crumble, and we would not have lost the sympathy
that much of the world felt for us after 9-11.
Make not mistake about it: This
President must go. The Burning Bush
is spreading, and it won’t stop until it consumes the entire world. We are not the ones to dictate what people should believe.
Democracy is right and true for us, but capitalism won’t work
everywhere the way it does here. Bush
and his cronies understand that if the entire world had their version of “free
markets” then their businesses would benefit.
They also know that big business actually hold the most
power in a world that has free trade. I’m
not saying that the world wouldn’t be better if it was one big democracy.
I don’t know. I do know
that Bush’s actions are made on the basis of what is good for his cronies and
himself, not the American people. It
is time for a regime change in America.
Let the dictator tumble.
Paul O’Neill is now proving
that these lies were no mistake. Mr.
Bush said things during the election debates deliberately knowing he was
going to do just the opposite. Bush
promised to be fiscally responsible, give the bulk of the tax-cuts to the
middle-class, not use our troops and money for nation-building, and make
education his top priority. Franken
and Moore use transcripts showing that these words came right out of
Bush’s mouth and from day one of his Presidency did just the opposite. Today, we see a wildly under-funded education plan, the rich
getting the best of the tax-cuts, and a deficit that is out of control.
We also see a war that is not protecting us from any security
threats, and rich people getting even richer through no-bid contracts and
over charging our government.
How could anyone be proud of being a Republican today?
Their spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh has been proved a lying, racist,
drug-addict. How could you get
any lower? I suppose you could
lie about the reason to go to war. Now
we know: President Bush did lie
to us about why we went to war with Iraq.
The American soldiers that are dying every day in Iraq are on his
head, and the head of this lying administration.
The innocent women and children that are dying every day because of
this war are also on his head. The
greed for money, oil, and power prevent Mr. Bush and his cronies from
weighing on his conscience, too.
It is time for regime change. We
got rid of one terrorist, let’s get rid of the biggest terrorist of them
all. Vote Bush out…again.
