On July 20 I posted Camp Democracy Adopts "Right to Abolish" Government which mentioned they'd included on the left hand panel of the page that magnificent phrase from the Declaration of Independence. "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, Â That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
Well, in a newer iteration, after a big funder joined on board, that fell off the web page. However, I'll still be selling the button. Email sales at radicalbuttons.com if you MUST have two or more, $2 each.
Moreover, this project isn't nicknamed CAMP FED UP for nothing. There's lots of radical anti-statists coming - though Cindy "I'm an anarchist" Sheehan won't be able to make it because of recent emergency surgery. OF course, she still could surprise us. And Katrina survivors and immigrants who want the freedom to move here will be getting rowdy, along with the peaceniks fed up with the war profiteers, neocons and Israel Lobbyists constantly driving us into war and into debt. Who knows what might develop?
Progressive democrats are the lead organizers and there will be actual "progressive" elected Democratic congresscritters about on a couple of days -- you know, the kind who want to pull out of Iraq so it will be safer to bomb the hell out of Iran once Israel attacks it. But between the above named groups -- and if all you radical decentralists show -- maybe we'll finally get that Secession Network going. Or at least an effective IMPEACH BUSH movement starting November 8th, when the Democrats take congress -- assuming Bush doesn't keep them busy supporting war against Iran. Damn those demopublicans! See photo of first IMPEACH BUSH protest initiated in early 2003 by yours truly through the DC Antiwar Network.
Since the Libertarian Party wimped out on calling for Bush's impeachment, I can't link to them. But at least one decent libertarian has announced he's running for President in 2008: Steve Kubby, the famous and persecuted entrepreneur and medical marijuana patient. He assures me he's against these wasteful interventionist wars. And I'm sure he'd be delighted to impeach Bush.
