The Battle for America Has Begun

The Battle for America Has Begun

"A time comes when silence is betrayal." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on April 4, 1967, at a meeting of Clergy and Laity Concerned at Riverside Church in New York City .

The battle for America has begun

The time has now come when silence is betrayal.

The reasons are blatantly obvious;

The Cheney/Bush administration has not only launched an illegal war and occupation of Iraq based on lies and deception, condoned and championed illegal torture and rendition of its enemies, built a billion dollar Embassy and four super bases in Iraq with no intention of leaving, but also made a mockery of the ban on torture signed into law on Dec. 30, 2005, by simultaneously signing a document asserting the Presidents right to ignore the ban -- a further demonstration, if one were needed, of their belief that as "commander in chief" Bush is above the law.

Then we add the corruption charges against Speaker Delay, Congressman Cunningham and Republican powerbroker Jack Abramoff ~ all of which can be traced directly to a White House policy of any means to the end ~ the end being total Republican domination of congress and support of the dark Cheney/Bush neocon agenda.

The battle for America has begun

It will be fought in the minds and hearts of all Americans ~ for this year we the people must change the political landscape .

We must rid the political landscape of the deception, lies and moral corruption that are the arrogant banners of the Cheney/Bush Administration and the Republican party.

See and hear the faces and voices of many Americans ~ many just like you ~ who are ready for this battle.

Watch this simple, yet powerful, four minute video and then enlist ~ or re-enlist ~ our democracy is at stake.
