What Happened to The United States of America?

While we were going about our business of raising our children, going to work, paying taxes, helping our neighbors, and voting in the elections something changed. Suddenly we have a Government that needs to keep secrets. We have a government that has dismantled the checks and balances carefully set in place by our forefathers. We have a government that has rescinded the right of habeas Corpus and no one seems to understand what is going on and if they do they don’t seem to care. Pick up a copy of George Orwell's 1984, read it and see if you can find the parallels in our own country.
Wake up! Get on the phone and call your congressional representatives and your Senators. Tell them that Dick Cheney and George Bush can do more damage to our country than 10,000 Bin Ladens. Why does the president and Vice President have to operate under such secrecy? We used to thank God that our government was not one of those spooky, secret regimes we read about in foreign lands. Understand what has happened: Starting with Cheney’s secret meetings with oil executives before we attacked Iraq, the secret prisons that the administration denied existed and now that no oversight will be allowed into the goings on in the White House during the criminal investigations of the Justice dept. Add to that the fact that the Vice President's office was responsible for the publication of the identity of one of our own CIA agents jeopardizing other agents, national security while committing a felony. Certainly, a case can be made for high crimes and misdemeanors. My fellow citizens this is not about being a Republican or a Democrat this is about the United States of America. We need this president and every president that follows him to understand that they will be accountable to the voters or we will throw them out. The time to act is now.
