FBI Inquiry Details Abuses Reported by Agents at Guantánamo (1/3/2007)
i hate to sound melodramatic- but i am afraid i will anyway. now is the time when we have to decide what and who we are going to be. we no longer have the luxury of maintaining the status quo. this is the time when we decide if we are going to continue to blend in with the masses or take a stand and do what is right. are we going to stand on the sidelines? or be the one who gives cpr to a dying nation? cheney and his administration have had some setbacks- but so did the emperor in 'star wars.' history has shown us that it won't be the masses that takes down tyranny- it will be a small number of resistance fighters who will win back our freedoms. make no mistake folks- there is still time. there is still time to stop these folks in their tracks, but we can't depend on others doing it for us. we can't depend on our neighbors or the democratic party. the congress only has limited powers and the strongest one it has at this point is the power of impeachment. we have to impeach the head of this outfit- and it isn't bush. if you continue to believe that george w. bush is the president of america, then nothing i can say will sway you. but, if the scales have fallen from your eyes and you can see that cheney and rumsfeld and their second 'shadow' government is really running the show- then maybe, just maybe we have a snowball's chance in new york this winter.
it is time to decide- will you stand and be counted? will you make the hard and possibly dangerous decision to commit to stopping this administration bent on absolute power? it is a personal decision that can only come from you. there comes a time in everyone's life when they have to make this decision. the time is here. the time is now. will you stand for torture? will you stand for secret prisons and shadow governments? will you stand for the illegal and unlawful imprisonment of thousands of detainees- from afghanis to iraqis to mexicans? is this the america you want to live in and be a part of? are you proud of the america you live in- or are you willing to get involved and change it for the better? the time is now.
