Just think about the cynicism and ego it took to get us here
Nixon bugged our loyal opposition party’s campaign headquarters, cheating and lying his way not only into election, but re-election. He set the modern pattern for Oval Office cover-ups and executive stonewalling, and turned up the paranoid distrust and oppression of the American people by its corrupted leaders.
Reagan compounded it. Reagan reinforced and made it somehow “acceptable,” made us “comfortable” with our subversion. Whenever possible, Reagan legalized it. Under Reagan, Wm Casey’s CIA instituted “secret wars” to bypass Congress and the Supreme Court, corrupt the Justice Department, and, for all intents and purposes, to seize power from the rightful, lawful government of the United States; that is, We, the People. Their “shadow government” serves the interests of the rich, powerful, radical right, elitist leaders of the multi-national corporations, the possessors of the great slave-based capitalist fortunes that have crushed people around the world for generations. When will we put a full stop to their greedy madness? It is clear that they know they have to stop us – cold. They are ruthless, and we should defend ourselves to the death, for they will kill us directly, or indirectly, if we do not.
Indirectly. They have ruined our environment.
Stolen our money.
Corrupted our government.
Crippled our labor movement.
Ruined our economy.
Attacked the Middle Class.
Forced us out of our homes.
The list of their offenses – crimes they have made legal by reason of seizing the law and twisting it to their tyranny and abuse – is long and despicable.
They are the great criminals of our age.
They are the super pirates, cutthroats, robbers, tricksters, hoodlums, and villains of our time. They will finally rank as the monsters that destroyed a Golden Age. We are living at the end of Camelot. A Dark Age is about to fall, if we allow it to happen, and they – the neocon corporationist republicans – made it happen.
If there is a god of justice, if we do want to save ourselves from the horrors of the neocon republican fascist creation, there must be a reckoning. Very soon.
