WORLD CAN'T WAIT -
DRIVE OUT THE BUSH REGIME
YOUR GOVERNMENT on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous
and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their
YOUR GOVERNMENT is openly torturing people, and justifying it.
YOUR GOVERNMENT puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing
them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them
in the dead of night.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a
narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.
YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses the science that doesn't fit its religious,
political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations
to pay a terrible price.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving to deny women here, and all over the world,
the right to birth control and abortion.
YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and
People look at all this and think of Hitler - and they are right to do
The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very
quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come.
We must act now; the future is in the balance.
Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They
recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they
cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the
challenge, and people sense this.
There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing." People who
steal elections and believe they're on a "mission from God" will not
go without a fight.
There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This
whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into "leaders" who tell
us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is
proving every day to be a disaster, and actually serves to demobilize
But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not
resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn - or be forced - to
There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush
regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it.
And there is a way.
We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge
change in this country and in the world.
We need more than fighting Bush's outrages one at a time, constantly
losing ground to the whole onslaught.
We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush
regime's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from
office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is
We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the
course of history.
Acting in this way, we join with and give support and heart to people
all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be
This will not be easy.
If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us.
If we act, they will try to stop us.
But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we
get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been
so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.
The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had
right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were
And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it
out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever
The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.
