We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…
…That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter it or abolish it and to institute a new Government…
…But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government.
The history of the present president of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world:
He has suspended the rights of American citizens to fundamental civil liberties. He has forgotten that the United States was founded on the proposition of the separation of church and state. He has encouraged torture and abuse and hatred. A president whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
We indict George W Bush. For befouling our country’s name. For using the rhetoric of freedom to justify tyranny. For rigging the election process. For squandering a vast federal surplus, while giving tax breaks to the rich. For forsaking the poor. For ignoring international agreements to protect the environment. For abandoning Alaska to the oil companies.
For abandoning New Orleans. For depriving prisoners of the benefits of a trial by jury. For establishing secret prisons on foreign soil.
For authorising illegal eavesdropping and surveillance. For waging a war based on lies. We indict George W. Bush!!
