Don't Tread On Me!

Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?

A Republic, if you can keep it.

- Benjamin Franklin, 1787

Yesterday, in an historic moment, the United States Congress stood up for the American people, and defended the general welfare of their nation and the entire world, by rejecting the completely fraudulent and unconstitutional Wall St bailout bill. This was despite the outrageous, and some would say dictatorial, maneuverings of the House leadership under Nancy Pelosi, arguably the most ineffectual and treasonous leader of the US Congress in a generation or more.

The ramifications of this attempt to install a bankers dictatorship and destroy the United States as a sovereign nation are right now shaking the markets, with the largest ever drop in the Dow Jones industrial average occurring yesterday, and the full expectation of a major global wipeout today. Meanwhile, the disintegration of the global banking system is accelerating with the collapse of Wachovia and Washington Mutual over the weekend.

For the time being, it appears that these criminals have taken one step too far, with even the largely cowardly and placid Congress finally making a stand as demanded by millions of voters. But make no mistake: the fight over the fundamental issue of the US Constitution is not over. The gangsters in charge of the Treasury department and Congressional leadership will return today with another attempt to ram this bill through, and will continue to do so until they succeed or an alternative plan is forced onto the table.

Well, I say bring it on: This crash is a long overdue wakeup call to the sleeping masses who have yet to grasp the enormity of the events they are living through. It will only be when the harsh reality of the inhuman evil that designed this economic system hits people with full force that they will get up off their rear ends and fight for the reforms that are needed.

Let us hope that the great sleeping giant that is the American public rise and crush the forces that are out to impose a global fascist police state. In doing so, they will remind the world what made their country great, by leading us all out of this terrible crisis into a new era of peace and prosperity for all.
