The Wall is Crumbling
It appears the wall separating the elitists in power and ordinary citizens is crumbling, and fast.
With the recent election establishing a Democrat majority for the first time in 12 years, comes a re-evaluation of all policies generated during the previous parties' rule. Suddenly what was dark is becoming light, what was wrong is being made right.
We are given a hint of things to come by the recent filing of charges by a German court. The Center for Constitutional Rights has filed a criminal complaint against outgoing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. The complaint requests that the German Federal Prosecutor open an investigation - and ultimately, a criminal prosecution - looking into the responsibility of high-ranking U.S. officials for authorizing war crimes in the name of the so-called "War on Terror. Also included are AG Gonzales and former CIA director Tenet.
There are serious efforts underway to repeal the Torture Bill also.
All of these things should once again restore our faith in the political process to correct the actions of a few affecting the many.
My prediction today is the indictment of Bush on similar charges, he along with Cheney have been placing their own agenda ahead of the will of the American people and as such will pay the price for their criminal behavior.
The fascists are being held at bay for the moment, we can rejoice in the fact the system does work when truth prevails. Let us be ever vigilant for the future holds much promise for the world, we must work hard to preserve freedoms and rights for all people.
