Clearly lots of people have views other than our political leaders. Some write columns in the papers, some have talk shows on TV. Most of us are left with the Internet as a means to express ourselves. On these pages you'll find the commentaries of one citizen, for whatever use you can make of them.

There is all manner of evil in the world. One of the worst kinds is a government ...view middle of the document...
Below are put a few of the treasonous acts of our elected officials:
In the '60's, three men of moral substance, two of the Kennedy brothers and Dr. King, are assassinated. We are told the assassins acted alone, but the real question is who benefited by the heart being torn from our People.
A President covers up crimes against our People, orders unlawful acts against his opponents, and commits war crimes against the Cambodian Nation.
The Congress, the Senate and the House of Representatives, awash in unjustified campaign contributions, manage all elections for the benefit of the incumbents. This same Congress routinely abuses the People's retirement program, Social Security, while creating for themselves retirement benefits of an unparalleled nature.
A large bill is about to be passed in the Congress, and unknown to anyone (supposedly), as if by magic, a rider is attached to this bill, benefiting to the tune of $50 Billion dollars the tobacco industry.

Such legislation was not written in the last minute, but had to already be there, produced by some working group that knew full well its assault on our freedoms. Who wrote this? Who set them to such a task?
In order to maintain power, the leader of the House of Representatives, seeks to redistrict Texas, in order to unseat sitting Congressman, and thus insure his party's majority in the next election.
The ruling elite, supposedly of the Party of Lincoln, hardly hide their deeds anymore, and sell favors almost openly. Power such as they have used and seek is heady stuff, intoxicating in the extreme. Their fans accuse their critics of being unpatriotic. The truth is they daily commit treason, for the Executive Branch no longer honors the Constitution, but instead makes plans to further erode the basic rights of our People.
Our public officials serve now only wealth and their own ambition and love of power.
Whatever other name one wants to call it, I call it Treason.
Democrat, Republic, Green or Citizen
