Don't Let The Conservative Republicans Back In Control

I have an on-going nightmare...that the current crop of conservative Republicans got back in control of Congress. You remember them. Those are the ones that supported shredding the United States Constitution through fear and threats so that they could hold onto power and help their rich corporate masters gouge more money from the poor, uninformed, and less privileged then them. These are the same ones that are projecting their own agenda as being the Democrat's agenda. They're the ones telling everyone that the Democrats are ruining America and destroying the Constitution...when it has been the Republicans and their Corporate Master that have been doing that all along. The Democrats didn't create Gitmo, the Republicans did. Now we can't really shut it down because the Republicans use fear-mongering of the uncertainty of the future to keep it. Do you think that if the Democrats tried to pass a bill in Congress shutting down Gitmo that the Republicans wouldn't start trying to scare us into allowing them to keep shredding the Constitution? Below is something written by Pastor Martin Niemöller during the Nazi oppression of Germany, this is more applicable to Bush/Cheney and the Republicans then of any other person or party -

  • First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
  • Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
  • Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
  • Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out.

If the Republicans gain power again, they WILL complete what they started during the Bush/Cheney years and it will be too late for us decent people to stop it.

Don't like the Democrats? Fine. Don't vote for them. But for God's sake...DON'T VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN! They represent an oppressive government that allows for stealing from its citizens.
