DemocracY: In Memoriam Five Years later

Five Years after one of the most shaking events in American history we are standing at a momenteous time.

To slightly paraphase Abraham Lincoln: (Changes noted by (...)

Eleven score and 10 (...) years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great (...) war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.
We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to (...){remember} a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

{TO Quote Monty Python: And now for something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT}

On the 5th Anniversary of September 11th, Are we still a Democracy?

I am sad to say that I do NOT belive that the United States of America is STILL A democracy.

Recent NON-Partisan studies of the 2000 and 2004 elections show MANY MANY MANY defects and Election FRAUD.
  1. Non-Partisan Analysis of the 2000 Election shows that the FLORIDA mandate for George W. Bush was LESS then 150 votes. This is Despite the large numbers of dis-enfranchised voters who were prohibited from voting by Ms. Kathren Harris, NOW RUNNING as a REPUBLICAN for SENATE.
  2. Non-Partisan analyses of the 2004 elections Now show us that OHIO, too had MANY MANY voter discrepencies.
In Light of this Situation, My FIRST PROPOSAL is that the UNITED STATES FUND an IMPARTIAL Supervision of the 2006, and 2008 ELECTIONS by the UN.

Additionally, evidence produced by our CURRENT President to support a WAR against IRAQ was based on:
  1. Weapons of Mass Destruction held by Iraq. None found. As a matter of fact the White House (either Pres or VP) Deliberately broke a law, prohibitting the PUBLIC "outting" of CIA operatives, for its own publicity purposes.
    1. I feel that this deliberate breaking of this law is a TREASONABLE act.
  2. The President of Iraq had contact with terrorists. This too has been refuted.
In Light of this, we must question WHY We went to war, and (Perhaps) whether this war was PLANNED before the President even took OFFICE.

Additionally, according to our Constitution (Still in force, despite the BEST efforts of the groups pushing the concept of the "Unitary President"), Each of the three branches of American government (that is Judiciary, Executive, and Congress) should hold and overview the actions of the other two parts of government to ensure that everything is balanced.

  1. In Light of the fact that the REPUBLICAN (led) Senate and the Republican (led) House of Representatives, have BOTH been sleeping during the recent six years of the Bush administration, it is IMPERATIVE that in 2006 we DEFEAT the REPUBLICANS and elect DEMOCRATS as the MAJORITY party in Congress
    1. The Senate and House have both been sleeping, silently approving the Presidents' policies, without questioning them.
    2. In the past 8 months, the congress has STARTED to question the views and actions of the president.
It is MY opinion that in 2008, The current president will be indicted for WAR CRIMES, and be held for a WAR CRIMES tribunal. Charges will Include:
  1. Deliberate (repeated) Violation(s) of the Geneva Conventions. This policy was established at the TOP by Secretary of the Department of Defense (DoD), Mr. Donald Rumsfeld, who is STILL employed by the current administration. It could be argued that since the Torture of prisoners was only IMPLEMENTED by Donald Rumsfeld, he should NOT be tried as a war criminal too. However, this premise (Only following orders, was disproven in WWII war crimes Trials.
  2. Illegal Invasion of a soverign foreign country on false premises.
  3. Illegal detention and "RENDITION" of prisoners from country to country for torture a la, "torturer of the week" treatment.

In close proximity to these international crimes, I would expect that the "cabal of Bush" will be tried for TREASON against the people of the United States.
These crimes include, but are not limited to:
  1. Intentional snooping on American citizens, despite laws against domestic wiretapping.
  2. Collection of databases of Americans, despite laws against it.
  3. Deliberate ignoring the constitution, ie, so called, "Signing Statements", which counter the constitution by "allowing the president" a veto, WITHOUT having being granted veto power by the CONGRESS.
  4. The So called "Patriot Act". Terms and conditions discussed in the Patriot act have been exceeded, and are violating the RIGHTS of Americans ONE day at a time.
  5. Torture of captives. When Americans are tortured in a future war, WE WILL ALL REMEMBER George W., who made sure those (future) Americans in the future WILL suffer because of his treatment (and the ENTIRE Abu Graves Scandal too!)
  6. Manupulation of the HAVA (help america vote act) by ensuring voting machines can and HAVE been manupulated during the 2004 elections.
It is my sincere hope that the medals of "Presidential Freedom" issued by Mr. Bush in 2003 to Paul Bremmer, and several other people complicit in these crimes be rescinded.

I am hoping for ALL of these reasons, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat in this country, that you will AGREE with me that in ORDER to SAVE DEMOCRACY in our COUNTRY, we MUST have a CONGRESS that is NOT controlled by the Republican party, which has RUBBER stamped EVER decision made by Bush

To Close I would like to suggest the following:
Vote Democratic in this November's Congressional races.

DO NOT re-elect an incumbent. Better to throw out the incumbent Republican and PRAY that we can get control of our country back from the cabal of radical republicans that CURRENTLY inhabit the office.

Be Careful when you vote. It appears the new motto of the Republicans is the old Chicago refrain, "Vote Early, and Vote Often" (*) There was a report that one district in 2004, had 1,000 voters registered, and yet had a 10,000 vote majority for Republicans!
