Bush Is A Fraud[Back to WatchDubya Links]
A Note of Protest:
It is likely that more than 50% of the U.S. population is strongly dissatisfied with the ascendancy of George W. Bush to the office of President. There are three likely reasons:
1. Bush won the election under questionable circumstances;
2. Bush has espoused a reactionary platform that places him far to the right of mainstream America;
3. Bush has demonstrated none of the intellectual attributes expected of a president.
In the interest of democracy, one could discredit election gripes (point number one) as being unfair to our longstanding electoral college process. Also, one might disregard Bush’s agenda (point number two) because the
hallmark of the United States Constitution is tolerance for divergent political and moral beliefs.
However, point number three leads to a more egregious problem, namely that a rather anonymous man, with no distinguishing ambition or vision has, by virtue of family wealth and connection, been installed as President of the
United States. Even the most cursory glance at George W. Bush’s history and character builds a strong case for charges of nepotism and cronyism. Such a glaring display of favoritism, to benefit an individual with no considerable
talent, runs counter to the spirit of competition and fair play that has driven the engine of American capitalism for more than two hundred years.
There is a way to tangibly and immediately raise a voice in protest of George W. Bush as President. For the remainder of his term, conscientious Americans should simply write "Bush Is a Fraud" on all U.S.
currency that passes through their hands.
This protest has already begun. The first bills were marked and spent in San Francisco as of January 26, 2001. What is important, though, is to not only begin marking all currency (and to continue the effort throughout the Bush presidency), but to forward this memo as much as possible so as to replicate the message throughout our money supply.
Make your voice heard. You can get a rubber stamp at TheStampMan.com for $9.31 and then stamp every bill that passes through your hands. I wonder how long it will take to stamp every bill made?
