the opposition platform

some words below have been changed to make this more interesting. the original, unedited text is below the cut in part 2. links are, of course, mine, picked at random from the vast expanse of the world wide web. i tried to find fairly reliable sources, but not always. i took extensive liberties with the links; you’ll just have to embrace my sense of humor in some places.

America is in peril. The welfare of American men and women and the future of our youth are at stake. We dedicate ourselves to the preservation of their political liberty, their individual opportunity and their character as free citizens, which today for the first time are threatened by Government itself.

For three long years the Bush Administration has dishonored American traditions and flagrantly betrayed the pledges upon which the Republican Party sought and received public support.

The powers of Congress have been usurped by the President.

The integrity and authority of the Supreme Court have been flouted.

The rights and liberties of American citizens have been violated.

Regulated monopoly has displaced free enterprise.

The Administration constantly seeks to usurp the rights reserved to the States and to the people.

It has insisted on the passage of laws contrary to the Constitution.

It has intimidated witnesses and interfered with the right of petition.

It has dishonored our country by repudiating its most sacred obligations.

It has been guilty of frightful waste and extravagance, using public funds for partisan political purposes.

It has promoted investigations to harass and intimidate American citizens, at the same time denying investigations into its own improper expenditures.

It has created a vast multitude of new contracts, filled them with its favorites, set up a centralized bureaucracy, and sent out swarms of inspectors to harass our people.

[apparently this is too much, the system choked. see part 2 for the rest of the platform]
