Saving America in three steps
Contributing writer for End the Lie
America is trapped in insanity by law, just as I’ve been saying for seven years.
For that long I have repeatedly screamed and ranted that Public Law 107-40 (also known as the AUMF) was the bane of our existence, that we are trapped in a DAFT and insane perpetual war, and that we should draft California Congresswoman Barbara Lee as the People’s Candidate for President.
Here is what she recently said:
Rep. Barbara Lee (CA),
The administration is using the Authorization for the Use of Military Force passed by the House on Sept. 14, 2001, as one of the justifications for the lethal use of drones. As the only member of Congress who voted against this blank check, I believe now more than ever that we must repeal it.
And here is what I say and have been saying for seven years now:
We could already be out of this mess, but you haven’t done what is necessary.
I will put out these three steps yet again, and hope beyond hope that somehow this time they will take hold, and we can regain our peace and sanity.
1. Stop ignoring Public Law 107-40. We are losing our freedom because you ignore this evil and malicious law that granted unlimited and unchecked power to the Presidency. Barbara Lee is exactly right when she calls for the repeal of this egregious legislation, and that’s why I have repetitiously called for that repeal for, what was it, oh yeah seven long frickin’ years.
We must end Public Law 107-40 before it ends us. We are running out of time.
2. Refer to this insanity by what it is – DAFT, that is, the Defense against Future Terrorists war – and if you don’t agree with that, tell me what the TSA does. Oh right, they defend us against future terrorism.
Stop using the words of the moron Bush, stop giving life to his sick and twisted word. We must win the linguistic battle and use our own words, create our own meme.
Stop the DAFT war!
3. Barbara Lee should be treated with much more respect than she gets. I have many times stated that she was the only person brave enough to stand against the war-mongers and vote no to unlimited war.
The people who want to save the world are always looking for true leaders – there is nobody, nobody, nobody more deserving of Progressive praise and support than Barbara Lee. She alone walked the walk, she alone fought to defend us, and now it’s time for us to support her.
But then, I’ve said all this for seven years. Do you finally hear the words this time?
There you have it, my friends. Follow these three steps. They are the path to peace.
And maybe a 12-year-old child can become a teenager and finally live in a nation that is not trapped in war.
