America Has a Posse
I’ve seen the graphics for “Twin Towers Have a Posse” which I initially thought was an awesome idea. The “Andre has a Posse” meme was prevalent everywhere; people spread that ridiculous thing like chain letters. It’s a good concept, but I feel we need to integrate with the anti-war movement. Thus I propose: America Has a Posse.
People accuse the 9/11 movement as being self-righteous conspiracy theorists. We can’t let them frame the debate. They are just trying to cow us into submission; if they accuse us of being overly patriotic or appealing to morality, why shouldn’t we engage in those behaviors more vigorously? We must speak more about taking back the country, regardless of political affiliation, getting honest Americans into governance and peacefully take the reigns of power from the corrupt legislative and executive branches of government. Thus, America Has a Posse.
I, of course, stress voting Democratic in November, but after that my allegiance to the Democratic Party is over unless I see some serious actions to admonish and investigate the Bush/Republican wrongdoings, including a new investigation into 9/11. If the Democrats actually act honorably, I promise I will chill a little bit.
Recent Polls show that one of the issues Americans most unanimously agree on is that the government is not telling the truth about 9/11. That event was so catastrophic to the nation’s psyche. Immediately after that event the current administration took us on a wild ride. Terrorists were the new boogey man. We invaded Afghanistan and then Iraq. Who knows where our troops will be in two months? The madness has to end. Most Americans are in agreement I’m sure.
Being against the Iraq war is encouraged in the Democratic Party. What happens when I broach the subject of 9/11? I get banned from the forum. It’s ridiculous. This central issue, on which the justifications for all the administration’s wrongdoings rely upon and on which a super majority of Americans agree they were lied to about, is not on the table for discussion. People aren’t quite fed up enough with the government to leave the Democratic Party over this issue, but if things don’t change soon this issue could trump the importance of “voting for the lesser of two evils”. Screw voting for evil, America Has a Posse.
9/11 was and always will be an issue that will both unite and divide. At first, we were all together, grieving for our fellow Americans dead and missing in the twin towers. My mother’s friend asked if I was going to enlist, I didn’t, but the thought had definitely crossed my mind. I am not militarily minded at all, but at that time even I considered taking up arms to defend my country. America Has a Posse. That’s what I learned on 9/11.
We can all nearly all (84% is it?) agree that the administration is lying about something related to 9/11. If you don’t buy that, what about the percentage that thinks those in power are blatantly using the attacks to justify any legislation that is presented to them? At least all Democrats would agree to that. How many Republicans?
The point here is, 9/11 can be a unifying issue instead of a divisive one. At the current moment, there are more candidates running for office, on this issue, in the 2006 election, than I can count on one hand. In the 2008 elections, 9/11 truth candidates running as Green or independent may be able to count on at least a small percentage of votes in any given district. There are enough dedicated truthers and frustrated citizens to create a small, but considerable and influential political bloc. How many fence sitters do you think there are in both the Democratic and what’s left of the Republican party? The 9/11 politcal entity could draw fence sitters and frustrated Democrats and Republicans into our fold. We could also force the clear Democratic majority to address the issue of 9/11.
The Democrats must see the splintering beginning. More and more they are confronted by “lunatic left wing conspiracy theorists”. I want to scream at them: WE’RE NOT FUCKING CRAZY, LET’S WORK TOGETHER YOU ARROGANT WHORE. WHY WON’T YOU SUPPORT A NEW INVESTIGATION INTO 9/11?! IF YOU DO, WE CAN STAND TOGETHER. Sorry, but that felt really good. There is serious rage at the Democratic and Republican parties right now, as well as disillusionment and fervent goose-stepping. The time may soon come to actually, gulp, stand up for what we believe in and shuck the two-party system. After 2006, we’ll have two years to band together. If we can establish a serious political presence, we can either actually try and run against Democrat and Republican candidates in local elections (for president, probably just the Dem nominee, unless it is a slathering pedophilic reanimated skeleton) or force the Dems to endorse a new, completely independent investigation into 9/11. We need to unite behind 9/11 like we did five years ago. America Has a Posse.
Let’s redefine what it means to be an American, to be a citizen in a democracy and become the “party” with actual family and democratic values. The divisiveness right now in this country is disgusting. We need to stop acting like idiots on chat forums, disagreeing about stupid shit just to be witty and adversarial. Honestly Democrats, you all owe me an explanation (Republicans for me are beyond hope or at least those corrupt ones in power). Why can you not discuss 9/11 intelligently or even lend any kind of meaningful or rhetorical support to the idea of a new investigation? Become the party of the people or self-destruct. America Has a Posse.
Well, this rant is over. Perhaps I’m being hypocritical by so vehemently opposing Democratic and Republican governance and also denouncing them for being so petty and divisive. Regardless, I have faith that people can shed our differences, come together, and take back this country for American values.
