Senate Betrays Us

by David Schlecht

[Updated below]

The Republicans are all up in arms about what they consider the unpatriotic MoveOn advertisement. Not just that, but some spineless Democrats supported the amendment to criticize MoneOn, as well.

Yes, these are the same Republican traitors who lied repeatedly to disparage their ex-military political opponents. How many of these traitors were silent or openly behind the Swift Boating of John Kerry? Yet, when MoveOn buys an ad that is factual, they’re all up in arms. Does any of this seem just a little bit hypocritical?

Olberman has a great piece on this, tonight. Watch this over at Crooks and Liars.

Keep in mind that our own government, against the will of the vast majority of Americans, just now defeated the restoration of Habeas Corpus and defeated a bill to support the military, but they have the hypocrisy to object to free and honest speech.

This type of blind hypocrisy, as ugly as it is, is what we have come to expect from our Republican party. However, this amendment had the support of many Democrats as well.

I generally avoid disparaging remarks about the Democratic party, as there is plenty of lies, hate end venom coming from the Republican Party. However, this warrants a big acknowledgment on the part of the Democratic voters. We can’t just sit by silently while our own elected officials make a mockery of our rights and our government. Call your representatives and find out why they caved to the hypocrites. What? Is free speech no longer an American freedom? We can lie and slander Kerry, but can’t even ask if Political Hack Betrayus is betraying his position, his oath, and the American people?

Call and write your newspaper, and your representatives. I’m taking all my Democratic donations and giving them to MoveOn so they can keep up the good fight.

State of Decline

by David Schlecht

Historians will be looking back at our generation in amazement, not for our great technology or our great artwork or at our great humanitarian achievements, but at the decline of America’s self respect. This week has brought to the foreground the total blockade the Republicans have successfully imposed on the American political process.

This week, the Republicans have, against the will of the people, blocked legislation to restore Habeas Corpus. The vast majority of American want to see justice restored, but the Republicans successfully prevented it from coming up for a vote. Even the vast majority of our politicians “claim” to support restoring justice, yet a small minority, the Republicans, kept us in the Dark Ages.

America, do you realize that your government has gotten out of your control? You are being controlled by an unresponsive government? The framers of our constitution, our country’s forefathers, repeatedly expressed the need to be prepared to revolt if it ever comes to this. I don’t think we’re at the point of revolt, not yet, anyway. But we are at the point that we need to remove the politicians who are refusing to represent the voters.

Today! Every Republican who decided to obstruct justice, needs to be recalled. Every single one! If they’re not representing America, they’re taking over the country and it’s either remove them now, peacefully, or be prepared to use force to extract them later.

The liars have repeatedly pretended to support the troops and repeatedly accused anyone else of being soft on terror or unsupportive of the troops. This week, in keeping with their true beliefs, the Republicans have again filibustered to prevent America from supporting our troops by giving them sufficient rest between tours in Bush’s war. The Republicans in our government have lied so repeatedly and so dependably that America has lost all confidence in their ability to lead the country. Liars left to infect the political system are causing this country extreme harm. They can’t say they support the troops and then vote against them. Liars!

Republicans do not support the troops or America.

Yes, history will look back, your kids and grand kids will look back and wonder where you were when America needed you.

Impeach the liars.
