The dictionary definition of insurgent is: one who rises in revolt against civil authority or an established government. In my eyes, we are a government of the people and when you go against the people you are technically an insurgent(just look at the poll numbers anywhere).

The Bush Administration has shown time and time again that it will piss on the Constituition of this great country to continue to feed its war and oil machines. Dick Cheney said it best in an interview on CNN just the other day, "Both the President and I have nothing to gain politically from what we are doing now. Neither of us are running for office after this term. So, we are doing what we feel is right for the country." Who cares what everyone else but "we" thinks, and don't think for a minute that every move made from here on out won't reap profits for the guys from big oil and big defense(Halliburton).

Let's use 9/11 like the leadership does for a second. Since 9/11, this administration has failed to uphold the constitution of the United States of America. Since 9/11, we have attacked a sovereign nation, on false premise, and turned Iraq into a breeding ground for terrorist cells to operate. Since 9/11, this administration has raped you of every last bit of Constitutional protection of your privacy, told you they did it, and continue to do so in the name of National Security, Amen. Since 9/11, this administration has demonstrated that it can not protect the people of this country from the likes of a hurricane, let alone if the unthinkable was to occur. Since 9/11, this administration has failed to secure our boarders and our ports, and in the process of this grand failure tries to outsource the job to an Arab nation that harbors terrorist. Since 9/11, the most important issues facing this country have been gay marriage, amnesty for illegals, and Terri Schiavo. Since 9/11, the scandals surrounding and inside the White House have hampered the ability to run this country effectively. Since 9/11, none of the recommendations from the 9/11 commission have been implemented.

You get my point, I could keep going but I am sure you understand. The Bush Administration is as corrupt, vile and un-American as the insurgents. Just in case it isn't clear enough already, some synonyms for insurgent are disobedient, insubordinate, mutinous and agitator. Decider was not one that was listed.

The Bush agenda carries itself over in the form of vile mouthpieces like Ann "Let's Frag a Congressman" Coulter, Rush "I love my oxycontin" Limbaugh, and candidates like Vernon "Let me convince you that Brad Miller is a homo, even though he has been married to a women for 25 years" Robinson. It is a sad time in America, but not all hope is lost. We must turn the government over to the guys and gals who will get it right for all Americans, the Democrats.

What is important to Americans right now is jobs, securing our borders, privacy rights, health care, gas prices and a minimum wage increase that reflects the increase for CEO's since the last wage hike. This is what directly effects the average American on a daily basis. I know, I am an average American. Net Neutrality and global warming are also very important.

The people of this country must send a clear message to the current leadership party, come election day, by voting them out of power. We must turn at least the house over to the Dems and then American's lives are back on the agenda. Don't get me wrong, foreign policy is important. It isn't going anywhere under the current leadership because you don't make friends by pissing everyone off. That doesn't work in any business model, and the US Government is a business model. We must reverse and stop this silent coup being staged by the extreme religious right. We must take our government back.

So, remember to get out to the polls in Nov and select your local Democrat to begin to fix the problems that the Bush Administration, and it's incompetence, has put in front of all of us.
