An Unlikely Conversation With
The Cowards in Congress
]Suppose you were an idiot... And suppose you were a member of Congress...But I repeat myself. -- Mark Twain
What shameful toads you are! Yes you, our elected lawmakers. Yes you, the folks we sent to Washington in our names. Yes you, the most spineless, cowardly and craven Congress people in history. Yes you, the most bullied, gutless and shameful herd of legislators ever elected. And you know exactly who you are.
Where in hell is your integrity? Where in hell is your self-respect? Youíve been led by your submissive noses to do the bidding of liars and warmongers. Youíve been suckered into applauding some of the most egregious crimes ever committed by a US government. Youíve become such a pitiful collection of sniveling sycophants. And you know damn well who you are.
Whatís that? You want to know what youíve done? Of what odious crimes are you guilty to evoke such striking condemnation? Is that what youíre asking? Is that what you really want to know? Youíre joking, right? Do you want the American people to believe have no idea what this is all about? What nonsense that is.
But, for the sake of discourse, letís accept your ignorance for the moment. For starters, letís take a look at two provisions in that forgotten document, the Constitution of the United States. Perhaps their significance will ring a bell somewhere in your pathetic and paralyzed minds.
We can begin with Article 1, Section 8. Here, the Constitution clearly states that you, and only you, have the right to declare war. Did you get that? Only Congress can take on the awesome responsibility of causing death and mayhem when there is a need to go to war. Only the Congress of the United States has the Constitutional power do that. Keep that in mind as we go on.
Next, letís do a replay of an Article you knew only too well a few years ago: Article II, Section 4. It says that the President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Remember that one?
Do you remember how you fell over one another to speak at the podia of your respective Houses to condemn Bill Clintonís private affair with Monica Lewinsky? You came out from under every piece of woodwork in the Capitol with such pompous indignation. You came from both political parties to wail to your constituents about the sexual indiscretions of a sitting President. And then you impeached him.
Yes, you were divided, but you crossed party lines to demand a trial for perjury and obstruction of justice. Keep that in mind, too.
You still donít understand, do you? Of course, you donít. You still want to know what it is youíve allegedly done. You have no clue at all. You cannot see that your guilt has nothing at all to do with anything you have done. Rather, your collective culpability lies in your INACTION, your SILENCE, your ACQUIESCENCE and your docile SURRENDER to the administration of PNAC as fronted by George W. Bush. Your cowardice is reflected in your complicity in his crimes against this nation and the world, and your refusal to stand up and denounce the secrecy, the duplicity, and the blatant lies that have brought the United States to this terrible moment in its history.
You forfeited whatever integrity you might have had as you timidly allowed a curtain of fear and intimidation to fall over Washington and the nation. You knew that, but you probably donít want to deal with it. Denial is salvation for some, and you probably needed to feel self-righteous about your role in Congress and your loyalty to your voters. Some joke. In fact, you are little more than cheap imitations of true public servants. And you know without any doubt at all who you are.
You still donít have a clue as to what this is all about, do you? That, too, is nonsense. You do know, you really do, but feigning ignorance is clever and effective. So letís lay it out for you in simple terms that even you can understand Maybe, when you take a close look, at the facts, you will look in the mirror with a little more skepticism. Maybe, just maybe, you will see yourselves as the lemmings you are. And maybe, just maybe, a few among you will reach back to see if your backbones have any chance of regeneration.
