Invigorate democracy

“Your money or your life!” snarls the crook, gun in your ribs. “Your Money AND your life,” snarls this un-Republican, Corporatist administration, “and your labor, and your rights, your Constitution, your planet!”

America’s been massively hijacked. They wouldn’t screen their Iraq bloodbath, but we saw up close, after Katrina, their capacity for cruelty and calculated “incompetence;” “collateral damage” indeed. They know exactly what they do, exterminating those not useful to globalizing “progress” while tra-la-la-ing to their next banquet.

Republicans and Democrats are party to the heist, foisting upon us: “Patriot Acts;” job off-shoring; corporate welfare that dwarfs social welfare; stolen elections; record costs-of-living; etc., etc. Had enough of these divisive, unaccountable, self-proclaimed patricians and warheads?

Reclaim your essential power and invigorate democracy. Revolutionary change will only come from you, citizen, mindfully, without hatred or fear, compromising your fluffy and moneyed lifestyle and “taking to the streets.” Resolutions to impeach are appearing nationwide, from Vermont to San Francisco to the Nevada County Green Party. Bring on the Bush cabal’s political capital punishment.
