A Costanzo.org editorial:
As Bush prepares to
nominate his first Supreme Court justice, it is important to understand
that our constitution is in danger. If the Supreme Court becomes the
property of the extreme right, our basic rights to life, liberty,
justice, and the pursuit of happiness may well be lost.
Life will be threatened by an unending war on "terror" (a.k.a., need for
middle-east oil); liberty will be threatened by the "Patriot Act" and a
Justice Department targeting political enemies; justice will be
threatened by a tax system that ensures greater and greater inequity;
and the pursuit of happiness will be threatened by a corrupt "religious"
right that targets science in ways that imperil our ability to
understand our universe and improve the lives of all.
To prevent this, you must speak out. Be an activist. Provide funding
ACLU, and other progressive organizations that
are ready to take on the challenge.
from "The Case for Impeachment" by
President Bush's most critical lies are probably
the two contained in his March 18, 2003 letters to the Speaker of the
House and to the President of the Senate justifying his decision to send
the American military to invade Iraq. (Link to the letter:
This letter was not a matter of courtesy, but was expressly required by
law in the October 2002 Iraq War Resolution.
It is a very short letter, containing only a single sentence, but in
that one sentence letter President Bush lied to Congress not once, but
The "Saddam Was Part of 9/11" Lie
President Bush's biggest lie to Congress in that very important letter
was his statement that invading Iraq was a "necessary action against . .
. those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized,
committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11,
We all know now however -- and George Bush knew then -- that Iraq had
nothing whatsoever to do with September 11
Any doubts about this were resolved by President Bush himself not long
after the invasion, when on September 18, 2003, he confessed "We've no
evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the [sic] September
Clearly therefore, the President's representation to the United States
Congress that invading Iraq was a "necessary action" against those who
"committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11,
2001," was a colossal, and deadly, lie.
It was not his only lie however.
The "Iraq is a Continuing Threat to the U.S." Lie
In addition, President Bush also told Congress in that same letter that:
"[r]eliance on . . . peaceful means alone will [not] adequately protect
the national security of the United States against the continuing threat
posed by Iraq . . .."
This was simply not true, and President Bush knew it was not true.
What kind of democracy . . .
Incumbents in Florida
when incumbents don't run, their party almost always
retains their seats. It happens this way in
Florida -and most other states -- because the
responsibility for drawing congressional and
legislative district lines after each 10-year census
rests with the state legislatures. It's true:
Lawmakers are responsible for drawing their very own
districts, and you can be sure they won't do anything
to jeopardize their own -- or their party's -chances
of winning. In Florida, they've refined it even
further: The Senate draws up the district lines for
the Senate, and the House draws up the district lines
for the House. . . It wasn't in the too-distant past
-- say, in the last 10, 20 or 30 years -- that a
qualified challenger had at least a chance of beating
an incumbent. That's no longer true, except in the
rarest of cases.
