Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

Your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it.

Your government puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

Your government is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

Your government suppresses the science that doesn't fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.

Your government is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.

Your government enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

People look at all this and think of Hitler - and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.

Dammit...if I'd only known sooner. maybe I'll keep DS out of school and tell the teacher why. Then again, i don't want to cause too much of a stir (I've gotten some flack already because he's not "fully" vaxed, doesn't say the pledge, wears "political" shirts and nail polish....etc)...all I need is a truancy officer called.


Maybe I'll show this to my high school sister, and she can pass the word around. Then I could write an article for the local newspaper about it. Raise some awareness.

No, actually THOUSANDS of young people (in NY alone!) voiced their opinions and were basically blown off by mainstream media, probably in part because of views like the one you just expressed.
