Be America. --- That's the real deal, my fellow citizens.
That's the mandate for 7 November 2006.

And, for EVERY day, thence.

We the People ... must never relent ... must be constantly vigilant ... must participate in every issue.

Our Republic is not a once in a while task.

It is Our Republic, 24/7/365.

It is NOT a spectator activity.

It is OURS to Live and Breath and Think and Nurture - Every Day.


Never, Ever Forget: George W. Bush willfully violated National Security to cover-up his willful launch of a war of aggression and illegal occupation of Iraq .... and, now he willfully provided nuke-making instructions to terrorists -- if you doubt it, just check 'the google' ....

11. It is a participation ritual...and reality...lets get out there and do something
to change the shit we're in. This is getting a bit tedious. Progress would be a nice alternative.

19. We agree. I'm tired of this narcissistic post - modernism....
degrading and relativizing important concepts like progress.

It's simple, things get better for more people at a more rapid rate...whaot a concept!!!!

20. You are so right. If we win tonight, there will be a temptation to think that we have
arrived. However, we will have only arrived at the starting gate. The forces that are behind Boshco will still want to destroy democracy, Our freedom can never be taken for granted, not even in "victory".

21. I'm still standing openmouthed in shock from that last one...
I don't know about you, UL, or anyone else here at DU, but knowing that

this "president" and his (mis)administration took the schematics, diagrams, and assembly instructions showing how to make a nuclear bomb, written in Arabic - and released them on the Internet(s)

makes me so angry, and so completely...well, the only word that expresses it is gobsmacked!

I can't seem to wrap my mind around the fact that anyone in an official position in my government did something so lame-brained and so dangerous. There are no words. There can be no pleading ignorance, and no excuses. They are a danger to the People and the Constitution of the United States, and a threat to our democracy. These people are incapable of making sound decisions and they have to be removed and replaced with representatives who can.

22. I believe in the fundamental wisdom of the Constitution,
and the fundamental goodness of the American people.

I believe that today we will see a resurgence of the power of those two things.

We are that resurgence.

23. I am a Constitutionalist
Edited on Tue Nov-07-06 12:06 PM by pkz
and as of late I have gotten so sick of the repubs and even our own party, all the rhetoric and BS.

I have taken too saying at the beginning of any political or topical discussion..." I am an American, and I want my country back"

Members of both parties seem to go silent for a moment.
