The towardfreedom.com website has an article on President Bush’s efforts to make imposing martial law within the borders of the United States easier for him and his goons. Apparently, the new law effectively repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which was designed to prevent the Federal government from using the military to enforce federal laws within our borders.
This is not exactly a surprise, given Bush’s previous disregard for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other laws of our country. His signing amendments have also shown his complete disregard for the rule of law and democratic principles.
This same law also grants the Pentagon over half-a-trillion dollars for the “War on Terrorism” efforts that are currently being waged in Afghanistan and Iraq. This is money this country can ill afford to waste prosecuting wars in foreign countries that were started under false premises, especially when health care and education are still badly underfunded in this country.
Given that the public is finally beginning to see how the Bush regime has used the threat of fundamental terrorism to violate international treaties and our own Constitution and laws, as well as manipulating the level of threat to help gather power to itself. It is not surprising that Bush should do something that may well allow him to become the first American dictator.
If we can impeach a man for lying about having a consensual sexual relationship with a woman, we should be able to justify impeaching a man who has violated the Constitution and broken federal laws, while seated in the highest office in the country. If you add the fact that his election to this office is questionable at best, that he has squandered the largest budgetary surplus, created deficits at level never before seen, and that this country has become more endangered as a result of his actions, rather than safer—impeachment really is the only option.
