Speak out to Censure Bush


Why does george bush feel that he can just laugh off the laws passed by Congress, and even the Constitution itself? He did it AGAIN by attaching a so-called signing statement to the renewal of the Patriot Act. This reserved the right to disregard reporting requirements that Congress had the temerity to impose. Who is going to challenge him? He's not laughing at just the legislature. If you do not speak out now, he is laughing at YOU.

He is laughing at you because you complain about the fact that nobody in Congress has any backbone. And yet, when someone DOES stand up, you do nothing to support her/him, or to encourage others to do the same. He is laughing at you because a million mostly NON-citizens, over the weekend, killed HR 4437 in the Judiciary Committee literally overnight. This is the same Judiciary Committee that will be considering his censure this very Friday. And yet most of you continue to do nothing. Yes, george bush is laughing at you.

CALL YOUR SENATORS NOW TOLL-FREE: 888-355-3588 or 800-828-0498

Was it not enough when george bush defiantly admitted that he had ordered illegal wiretaps of American citizens? He is laughing at you. Was it not enough when george bush signed a law intended to stop the international crime of torture, and then declared he would ignore it at his own dictatorial discretion? He is laughing at you. Was it not enough when he lied in the most pathological way to start a war in Iraq for the sole purpose of aggrandizing his own power? He is laughing at you.

Some say that censure is not enough, that george bush must be impeached. Some go further and argue that he should be tried for war crimes. Is that any reason NOT to speak out for censure as the first step? We have enough participants right now in our OWN network, just the people who will receive this one alert, that if each and EVERY one of us would take just 20 seconds to submit the action page above, there WOULD be a censure of george bush. Since we started doing this, about
the best yield we have ever had to ANY one alert was about ten percent. Just ten percent of you did something as simple and easy as to submit an action page.


You are progressives. A couple of Spanish language DJ's in Los Angeles got together and decided to issue a concerted call to action; and they put something approaching a million people in the streets. And the Judiciary Committee literally trembled. Where is progressive radio on this?

[Please listen to "High Spirits" on Saturday, at 8 pm, on wcky 1530 am.]

Why are you not all giving out the toll free phone numbers 888-355-3588 and 800-828-0498 every hour on the hour to call our Senators?... george bush is laughing at you.

You don't always have to draft a lengthy personal comment; just take 20 seconds to submit the form. Take 20 seconds to make a toll-free phone call. Take 20 seconds to wipe that arrogant smirk off his face. Because until you do, george bush is just going to keep laughing at you.
