"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."
-- Abraham Lincoln

Hmmm, this is curious... Karl Rove said earlier this week that "there is no real anti-war movement" in this country. Funny that Rove would say that the very same day it was reported that a whopping 67% of the country opposes the war. Sounds pretty "real" to me, Karl. Where does he live again? I think we may need to expand the route of this weekend's march to include a pass by his cave.

Yes, I am one of the "clowns" who will be in DC this weekend, and I don't feel one bit silly about it. Many people have been asking me, "why bother?" The most typical comment I get is, "it's not going to make any difference," which is exactly the reason I will be there this weekend. The Karl Roves of the world are counting on complacency amongst the populace. They're surely hoping another pretty, young blonde girl goes missing on a tropical island somewhere so we'll all forget about this disastrous war, a continued pattern of cronyism and corruption, and outright incompetence at the highest levels of government. Don't let it happen.

The time for being complacent is over. This shit is important. The state of the union is not well. I'm not demanding you all come to DC and march this weekend, but I am asking you not to sit back and simply throw your hands up when you see or hear the hypocrisy. Call bullshit on it all. Demand accountability. Educate those who refuse to pull their noses out of their gossip rags and their eyes away from reality television. Every little action matters. Every time we raise our voices it adds to an increasingly louder chorus across the country. A chorus that is fed up with the corrupt, incompetent and downright dangerous establishment currently occupying the seats of power in this country. And we should all be screaming at the top of our lungs at this point.

Not convinced? Want more reasons why this administration should be held accountable? There are at least 1,000, but try these on for starters:

How's that for starters?

"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable -- a most sacred right -- a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world." -- Abraham Lincoln

Loved your post! I've clipped your list and reposted it at Radical Writ and Pam's House Blend... with appropriate attribution and hyperlinks, of course. Great research, dude!
Great post&list. I've posted it on my site. Thanks for this!

I see it was copied to Daily Kos and I'd thought I'd cross-post my hatred back here:

for his fuck-you to half of the USA
