A Proclaimation and Call to Action

In the course of great events, and times which try men's souls; It happens that a great nation may take enterpise on a course of great folly, which in itself sets it apart at the seams, and cleaves like a knife between its stated ideals and its actions. This is not new for any nation, least of all those who's stated ideals are beyond that of mere fickle of petty tyrants, but such endeavors may prove to forment much that is to be regretted, and may prove to impliment such tyranny at home or abroad.

This is such a time.

Wherever a nation's government cries patriotism and conquest in the name of liberty like a shrill banshee to glare up the ghosts of dread in men's bones, and yet takes action to hinder freedom and liberty in foreign lands and at home, it behooves an honest man to take cover.

Whatsoever that a government may lie and spread falsehood and fear and strike at the basest ignorance and ignobility in men's hearts to do harm unto others unknown to him, is unjust and injustice itself.

Even If it is true, that a foreign land is ruled by a strange and brutal tyrant, one must give pause to the designs of one's own government on that land should it be less than forthright in its reasonings to topple said tryant, and indeed it should always give reasonable men cause whenever their government should sound the trumpets of war.

Doubly so must it be, if said foreign government has never had a hand in taking a life nor liberty of you or your fellow countrymen.

It is a folly to lay reason down to rest when the hounds of war come baying, it is as worse than death to lay liberty in chains at the heeds of ignoble gentry, should they compel you to abandon it in the name of safety. One would be better suited to lay upon one's own sword, if blood must be spilled at such a cost.

It is in this specific instance, and in these specific times, which I must proclaim my utter protest. These are grievances which should brook no tresspass, but yet have, and I fear that no man shall stand against them if not me. Therefore I proclaim the following as self-evident transgressions against human rights and liberty, both domestic and foreign:

THAT the Government of the United States, should endeavor to make war upon the Soverign Nation of Iraq, lay callamity upon its peoples and lead our own people and the heads of other nations into concert with said undertaking under: False, misleading, distorted, deluded, and beguiling claims reguarding the nature of threat posed by Saddam Hussein and his regime.

THAT the Government of the United States, would use the People's fear in the wake of the tragedy that is and was 9/11 for opportunistic aims; both to curtail domestic liberties and for marshalling foreign conquest, the reasons for which can be stated no other than thus: To secure the natural resources and common property of the Nation of Iraq.

THAT the Government of the United States, would move to cover up and lay not a single ounce of blame for a slew of errors and failings at the hands of those responsible for ensuring domestic security, in the course of events which would culminate in 9/11.

THAT the Government of the United States, would fail to address the greivances of the people in the wake of two public elections riddled with failure, fraud, and indecent procedure.

THAT the Government of the United States, would, through its misleading of foreign Heads of State sour the name of the People which it represents, in the wake of the great outpouring of sympathy and profferings of aid during our time of great tragedy.

THAT the Government of the United States, would continue to occupy the People of Iraq, and spread false information about the nature of the Civil War that the Nation of Iraq is now in.

THAT the Government of the United States, would continue to hold our Nation's Sons and Daughters between civil strife in a foreign land which our government had helped to create, spilling their blood under the onus of lies.

THAT the Government of the United States, would having sent our Nation's Sons and Daughters to war, do so without proper manpower, equipment, security, nor supply, And then beseech them to stay an inordinate amount of time without returning to their native soil.

THAT the Government of the United States, would having sent our Nation's Sons and Daughters to war, forcibly require them to stay past their voluntary commitment, not having any noble way to compel men to fight.

IN THE EXECUTION OF THESE TRANSGRESSIONS: It is with great anger and righteousness that I must lay blame at the whole feet of the Government of the United States. It is with great Irony that King George was fought and severed from our country for less than this, but that President George would fail to recieve even the lightest compareable treatment from our so-called opposition party. The failure to redress these grievances, among many other grevious deceptions and blatant bullying on the part of the government, shall have the effect of depriving the civil body of all confidence in its democratic institutions, or worse: It shall lay the path for the machinations of a politiburo to construct a Tyranny and place our liberty in chains.

Should these grievances not be addressed, there will be sown greater seeds of discontent, and in the minds of the people foster cynicism, and in their hearts plant rebellion.

Thus being forewarned, we ourselves shall become forearmed.

Small things grow great by Concord.

Okay, my one error (that I spotted) fixed. My wife will convert it to PDF while I'm at work, and will probably host it on her site.
