World Can't Wait

"The World Can't Wait: Drive Out the Bush Régime!" It's the rallying cry of a group of activists who believe that the excesses of the Bush-Cheney administration in eroding civil liberties, politicizing justice, abrogating treaties, and ignoring fundamental principals of both national and international law, are more than sufficient grounds for demanding that Bush and Cheney be removed from office before 2009-01-20. They feel, as do I, that our national soul is in grave danger from the neoconservative cabal that has brought us the Iraq War, Abu Ghraib, Gitmo (Guantánamo Bay), waterboarding, the USA PATRIOT Act, warrantless wiretapping, unfettered and unlimited detention without trial or even access to legal representation, the incompetent response to Hurricane Katrina, and scandal after horror after brazen betrayal of our nation and our founding principles.
