"A King who is unfaithful to his duty forfeits his claim to obedience. It is not rebellion to depose him, for he is himself a rebel whom the nation has a right to put down."
Oddly enough, this is from the foundation of conservatism, and essay by Thomas Aquinas. I hereby embrace it with all my heart. There is a groundswell from within the Republican party that will ultimately join with the rest of us a create regime change right here in America. It will not come from the entrenched, chickenhearted Democrats embodied by the likes of Richard Gephardt. The mainstream Democratic Party has failed America in a huge way. It is up to party insurgents and ethical Republicans to save the American ship of state! It is happening. Here is a State GOP party chairman stating exactly that:
According to former state of New Hampshire GOP Chairman David Gosselin, "We need a challenger to draw [Bush] out on the issues and answer the questions we have about the war, the economy, and questionable dealings the President has had with major corporations to which he or his staff have connections.''
"George Bush is a maverick who does not follow the traditional Republican party line regarding overspending," stated one local voter. "If I were to go out and spend double and triple my annual income the way that Mr. Bush does, I would very soon be bankrupt -- or in jail. His open-handed spending policies are scaring me."
I think as the election grows nearer Bush will die the death of a thousand cuts. So does John Dean, former Whitehouse counsel under Richard Nixon. Here's what he has to say about the treasonous exposure of Valerie Plume as a CIA agent. (Rove is going down!)
If this case does not make headlines in 90 to 120 days, it will be quite surprising. There has been too much high level action and Comey, a presidential appointee, knows that politically it would be better for Bush & Company to have the matter flushed out within the next few months, than to have it arise just before the November election. Needless to say, this could be an interesting year for the White House, with more than reelection to worry about.
The GOP hit the ceiling in pompous outrage at a piece on the internet comparing the Speeches of George Bush to Adolph Hitler. Of course they both said those things but what has truth got to do with it? Turns out this particular train of thought is a big discussion topic in Europe. After all, they have pretty close experience with Hitler and are seing way too much of Bush:
And who are these bloody Europeans who keep comparing Bush to Hitler?
I am a great fan of Johnathan Swift. He made his "Modest Proposal" many years ago to a reception of laughter and outrage in early 18th century Europe. David Podvin makes a modern proposal that I find very appealing. Though I thought Swift's original had merit, too, so what do I know?
Peace and Courage,
