George W. Bush's poll numbers are tumbling, his credibility crumbling, his domestic and foreign policies faltering, and
our national debt soaring. Worse, many Americans fear that our nation is at far greater risk of terrorist attack today than
While Mr. Bush has cynically spun lies, and claims to care about America and its people, he has undermined the United States
Constitution, stomped upon freedoms granted under the US Bill of Rights, attacked the bulwark of environmental laws that protects
our natural resources, threatened our national security through reckless military adventures, and has savaged our economy
by serving not the electorate but his campaign donors. Mr. Bush has proven repeatedly by his actions that he represents not
the people, but a handful of the nation's wealthiest families, a small group of corporate special interests and right wing

Meanwhile, the real American people, not the super rich, but those millions who form the backbone of this country -- America's

and harmed the good name of those honest corporations who have steered clear of Republican cronyism and Neoconservative global
Still, the corporate-owned mainstream media, in attendance at the President's rarely held press conferences, meekly reports
the administration's false promises and lame excuses, and fails to ask the tough questions that are critical to the survival
of our nation in this dark time.
In truth, this is a time made even darker not by Al Qaeda, that shadowy terrorist enemy who attacks us from without, but
by a Republican President and Congress that are shattering the bedrock of democratic institutions upon which our founding
fathers built our country. They are destroying America by a terror attack from within.
Americans deserve straight answers from George Bush, and they deserve them now: ...
