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.
