President Bush's Speech

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Did you, perchance, watch the televised speech by President Bush earlier this evening?

Usually, when any President of the United States gives a televised speech, I flip through the channels looking for something else to watch, since all politicians are alike, and you can't believe anything they say.

But, tonight, President Bush's speech delayed airing of CRIMINAL MINDS, my favorite televison series, so I watched the speech while waiting for CRIMINAL MINDS to begin.

Did you notice that President Bush never even once referred to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES?

Why not?

Could it be that the President's proposed financial recovery plan would be in violation of the TENTH AMENDMENT?

Also, President Bush, allegedly a Republican, alluded to the system of "democratic" capitalism.

Excuse me?

Isn't the United States of America supposed to be a republic, and NOT a democracy?

Why is the word, "democracy", never mentioned even once throughout the text of our DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, or the BILL OF RIGHTS?

How many voters are cognizant of the critical difference between a republic and a democracy?

What about the Nazis?

How is the federal government's proposed financial recovery any different than the National Socialism implemented by Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich?

When you factor in our disregard for the sanctity of human life (as evidenced by abortion and euthanasia), quotas and preferences based on race, and politically correct thought control (i.e., hate crimes and hate speech legislation), how is contemporary American society any different than the hated Nazis whom we fought against in 1941?

President Bush stated that our economy is not working the way it should.

Actually, our economy is functioning correctly.

Over a long period of time, our government forced a whole bunch of previously solvent financial institutions to make a whole bunch of loans to a whole bunch of poor credit risks.

As`a result, all of the financial institutions are failing.

The national economy is collapsing.

That's a predictable normal outcome.

Given all the circumstances, it's exactly what should happen.

A total economic collapse will not end our world.

We will recover.

Life will go on.

So, I'm hoping that we, the people, will somehow persuade our elected representatives to be true to their sworn sacred oaths to uphold and defend our CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, as that should be their ONLY consideration.

Any other course would violate their oath, and be grounds for impeachment.

Let's not be in such a rush to save our economy by destroying our nation.

This is the hour when Liberty is hanging by a thread.

Thank you.
