President George W. Bush has put into motion the dogs of war, what is the
duty of a citizen during this time of conflict? Most will rally around the
flag as a knee-jerk flinch of social expectation. Others may reflect about
the gravity of the moment and offer reserved support. Then there are those
who march to a different drummer. They see their duty and purpose as adhering
to the ideals upon which this nation was founded and claims to protect and
defend. For those who seek the moral course, profound questions demand an
For well over sixty years the United States government has failed to honor
its own supreme law. The requirement for Congress to vote on a declaration
of war is a concept that every ordinary man and woman can understand. All
the tortured rationalizations why it is not necessary to observe the explicit
steps necessary to follow the supreme law of the land cannot be substituted
with artificial resolutions, spurious court rulings or manipulated United
Nations Security Council pronouncements. Is this war to conquer and colonize
Iraq legal? By any measure of historic authority, it is not.
What we have is a coming cloud of combat that will be unleashed with no real
idea what events will follow or what twists of counter reactions will ensue.
Who among us can answer with confidence that the risk of an emasculated regional
tyrant poses an imminent threat to our own country? Do you really think a
believable case has been made to marshal the resources of the only superpower
to obliterate an entire country just to remove one man and his entourage
of goons? Ponder this question well, the future of your own family and nation
depends upon your decision. If you are willing to trust that your government
leaders know best or are not lying to you, is that not a greater gamble then
hoping that the rest of the world will just look away when the thunder of
high explosives fill the desert air? Blowback should be expected for good
This war is unnecessary. Only a lamebrain would believe that genuine security
of our country is enhanced with imperial adventures. If one is to be convinced
that military might can eliminate or subdue various hostile factions that
view the projection of arbitrary Yankee power, then you didn’t learn anything
from 9-11. In this environment of anti-intellectualism, even pure and passionate
arguments to protect and preserve our nation’s purpose go unheeded. Citizens
that seek to be true to the original tenets that made America different from
any other country in history are ignored and ridiculed.
Within this rancorous hysteria, one real ray of hope shines. The United Nations
has been discredited for all times as a serious body for international affairs.
The right of the United States to exit that society of globalists should
be self evident to any loyal American. Our duty and source for legitimate
dissent is to restore the rightful sovereignty back to our elected officials
and to formulate a foreign policy that has as its sole purpose to preserve
the Liberty of every American citizen. We must hold them all accountable
to the principle that the United States was not created to be the policeman
for the world or to be an avenging angel.
The foreign policy of internationalism has destroyed the essence of America
and the prospect of continuous and endless interventionism has doomed any
real chances for a restoration of a Republic. The entire political class
invokes a nihilist culture that preaches altruism while enacting bondage
and servitude. The War for Iraq has no more to do with liberation than the
oligarchy that rules in your name desires to guard your individual freedoms.
Dissent is your duty to see through this facade of subterfuge that is called
supporting the president. The best way to aid the troops is to demand they
stand down and be brought home.
Public opinion does not move policy, since opinion is manufactured as the
“wag the dog” script is acted out. When people come to accept that authentic
Patriotism is realized when they practice dissent and civil disobedience,
America will stand a chance of returning to national sanity. Any official
that tells you -- you must pay any price, bear every burden, and share all
sacrifices -- is betraying your birth right. The incontrovertible enemy is
not a maniacal oppressor holding hostage his own people in an alien desert.
No, the irrefutable foe is the psychotic political culture that drives U.S.
foreign policy. The public once again has been duped into fighting the wrong
President Bush said “we did nothing to deserve this threat.” What world is
he living in? The people of America don’t deserve to be put in peril, but
who in their right mind can say that the U.S. government is not responsible
for creating the strongman Saddam Hussein? Facts are dangerous for the lawless
men that rule our country! Are you able to understand that our virtue has
been long squandered and is now being completely destroyed by this coterie
of madmen that back the total transmutation of our country into a gulag of
fear and despair? The dying regime is ours!
Power does not make right. How many more tyrants need to be removed before
we admit that our own homegrown despot has devastated our own rights and
liberty as the cost to expand the empire? We have a duty to resist this fraud
and the insult that is being hyped and so feebly passed off as legitimate
national interest. History will not favor the United States in this age of
crazed hubris. Armageddon is at your door and its blood will not wash off
your hands. The shame of future generations will be forgone only because
they will never live. The madness of this King George is a very sick sequel
to the movie. Your duty is to stop this deranged emperor. His crown warrants
