Bush and Pack of Traitorous Senators
Apparently, Bush isn't the only one who thinks that the Constitution is, "...just a goddamned piece of paper."
it's time to re-write the constitution
so that this can never happen again!
Bush has now made the choice for each American clear, and I'm no longer going to sugar-coat what this means:
Support Bush's method of fighting the War on Terror, and your a traitor to the United States and it's Constitution.
Unfortunately not enough of the others did.
I'm looking, however, and I'm thinking that the loss of Indiana from the face of the planet would be a good thing. Not only do we lose Lugar and Dan Quayle - we also get rid of the interminable road construction on the Borman...
We are no longer a democracy. We have a dictatorship in the making, and it is growing exponentially.
SA, to be more precise...I would say that we can no longer refer to this as a "Constitutional Republic," since our elected leaders have no respect for the Constitution and are demonstratably refusing to uphold it. Whether or not we are still a democracy remains to be seen.
Sewmouse, other than readers that I have in Indiana (a few), I'm OK with a big crack in the earth swallowing Indiana.
Tom, agreed I'm surprised that Lautenberg voted in favor as well. I was also surprised that Snowe didn't vote, rather than voting against. Was there some other reason, I wonder? What about all of Specter's bluster? (That's really rhetorical. He's just full of hot air.) What about Domenici?
Even my DEMOCRATIC House rep (Dennis Moore) voted for this disgusting swill. What the HELL WAS HE THINKING!?!?!
I agree - every last one of these poor excuses for americans should be arrested for treason. At the very least it's time they are ALL fired.
(sorry for the profanity kvatch. weaker words just won't do).
Kvatch, do stop by my place. I have a picture with my post that may explain some of Dubya's love for torture.
SA, that's true. "Democracy" is an overloaded term, and I should have been more precise as well. What we're waiting on is to see whether or not we remain a representative democracy.
Tina, already done. I think that in the coming days we should all take our representatives and senators and do a "XXXXX Is A Traitor" post. I can't do it for CA, but I think that I'll start on my VA, MN, and TX Senators. I was one for six there.
Blognonymous is a 'family blog'? Since when?! :-) Keep in mind, I'm the one who suggested forcing everyone to fly in paper hospital gowns.
I'm going start tomorrow with Texas and work my way forward through all the states I've lived since leaving the Lone Star State. Should get some get me a few death threats--make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Betmo, you got the House and that's worthy too. Good job.
Azgoddess: rewriting the constitution will do us little good, when nobody follows it! But I agree with your thoughts...this is outrageous at best. What good does it do us to work for the reelection of Democrats that just screwed us? And the NUMBER of Democrats that voted yea......I have never been more discouraged.
Thanks for the list. It's been crazy here lately.
I'll post it and mention I stole it from you.
Shouldn't Lieberman have an "I" after his name? Hopefully, in a few weeks, he'll have a "former Senator" in front of his name.
More and more I'm thinking that I can't believe it has come to this.
Senator Mel Martinez (R), traitor, FL, loves to wax nostalgic about his immigrant flight from Cuba. Go back, you piece of shit, since you've now demonstrated such a fondness for gulags.
Senator Bill Nelson (D), traitor, FL, compares favorably with his opponent in the upcoming race, Katherine Harris. So I have to vote for a traitor in November to keep an election-stealing lunatic out of office. God bless democracy!
Abi, you're so right. Lieberman's the reverse Jeffords.
Chuck, there is an interesting school of thought coming out that says that not taking back either chamber would be better for the Dems than winning this November--allow the Rethugs to dig themselves a bigger hole.
Julien, I so agree. That oath they swear is to the Constitution not to the frickin' President.
I couldn't resist. I featured this entry (among others) on my blog today.
AT least 3 (and hopefully 4) congressional seats here are being returned to us in November. And Guvna "My Bitch Mitch" Daniels has the third worst popularity rating in the entire country!
That said. . .would about 100,000 progressives like to move here and join us? Think of the fun we could have!! ;)
Kathy, I responded on your blog, and John I'd love to see the land of Quayle turn away from the Dark side of the Force. So...about moving, what are housing costs like there? Wait...wait...don't tell me. I don't want to cry.
Of course my Oregon GOP Senator Gordon Smith voted against the Constitution. He is a hard-right type who often masquerades as a moderate. Sure, he might support stem-cell research, and he kind of likes to ride the fence on the ANWR drilling, but hey... when he did a little interview about how Kerry looked "French" during the 04 presidential campaign, I figured out what he is really all about. Time to write him another letter.
Shadowmonkey...welcome. I'm linking your post to our 'Parade of Traitors'.
