Result: he’s forced to resign just before he would have been booted from the presidency. George W. Bush invades a sovereign country while lying to the American people and the United Nations. Result: nothing more than shitty approval ratings.

I know we are not suppose to ask, but, are you aware of the religious make-up on Congress? Congress is suppose to represent the American people by acting as their mouthpice, giving them a voice in government.

If you’ve never heard of COINTELPRO…you should have as it gave birth to the Patriot Act and the Bush Crime Family’s covert and overt infringements on our civil liberties. COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) is a program of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at investigating and disrupting dissident political organizations within the United States.The FBI and police instigated violence and fabricated movement horrors. Dissidents were deliberately “criminalized” through false charges, frame-ups, and offensive, bogus leaflets and other materials published in their name.
