We Have to Start Paying Attention.


President Bush and the powers that be could not get away with the things they do without our "consent", even if that "consent" is without our knowledge. Consent implies that we knowingly and willingly allow for something to happen, but when our future and our children's future are at stake, ignorance is not an excuse, therefore saying and doing nothing is the same as giving our full permission.

Bush is supposed to serve "us", not the other way around, yet he feels very comfortable ruling autocratically right in front our eyes, even when everything in our Constitution makes it very clear that the President represents the people, not the other way around.

“We The People” have the power to demand accountability and transparency of the Executive branch. The Framers knew how important it was to incorporate checks and balances into our system of government preventing tyranny from becoming a possibility, but in order for the system to work properly it requires attention from the populace.

"When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated. "
- Thomas Jefferson
"Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment nothing can fail. Without it nothing can succeed. He who molds opinion is greater than he who enacts laws."
- Abraham Lincoln
"History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."
- Martin Luther King, Jr

"The great masses of people will more easily fall victims to a big lie rather than a small one, especially if it is repeated over and over."
- Adolph Hitler

Imagine how powerful Adolph Hitler would be today with corporate run national and international media coverage, 24/7. On the other hand, if we choose, we have the technology to access alternative media coverage more than ever before, rendering anyone with an evil agenda like Adolph Hitler, impotent.
