The Random Ruminations and Observations of a Curmudgeon

Dear Leader and the Law

Either the citizens of this country are willing to sacrifice to keep this a country of laws, or the United States will cease to exist as we know it.  The Founding Fathers were cautious but largely optimistic about the form of our government.  I can but think of Caesar’s Senate and Hitler’s Reichstag.  Will the U.S Congress willingly allow itself to become as those?  Will we Americans allow a President to become a ruler, rather than an enforcer of the laws of the United States?

Bush does not have enough time to completely destroy what the Founding Fathers created.  The key is, who replaces Bush?  Will the American people elect another lying autocrat, or will they choose someone to restore our dignity in the world, and amongst ourselves.  Will Bush have the 22nd Amendment repealed?  Do you doubt the presence of a memo somewhere discussing this?

These are sad, sad times.
