Dear George, GET LOST!
Rick Gagliano | 10/06/05

This is an open letter to George W. Bush, who thinks he's the President of the United States of America. It may be somewhat of a rant, but I think it's time people started speaking their minds about this impostor.

Dear George,

First off, I am not going to address you as Mr. President because I believe you stole the elections in 2000 and especially in 2004. Your goons, your political operatives and whatever computer hackers were working for you made sure that the 2004 vote went in your favor and in favor of your Republican counterparts. It was a complete and total sham. You haven't eanred my respect and you'll receive none from me.

I should point out that I used to be a Republican. I was a registered Republican most of my life, and I never voted along the straight party line, but that all changed when you came along. Now I am registered with no party and I don't bother to vote, because, as we all saw in 2004, individual votes don't matter.

Since you've been taking up residence in the White House, you've ruined the country I call my own. This is MY COUNTRY, Mr. Bush, just as much as it's your country. The difference is that I honor the Constitution and the values of our founding fathers, while you ignore history and trample on the rights outlined in our democracy. You are a hypocrite and a miscreant.

It didn't take you long to begin ruining America. On September 11, 2001, just nine months into your supposed rule, you and your cohorts either planned and executed or sat by and had the military stand down as the most heinous act of violence ever visited on MY COUNTRY was allowed to occur. I have no doubt that you knew the World Trade Center was going to be attacked and with the evidence piling up, I lean towards believing that your administration planned and participated in this event. You are a criminal, a conspirator and a traitor. You shouldn't be in the White House. That's a place for honorable, duly elected men. You belong in prison.

Soon thereafter, you and your cohorts sent the Patriot Act to Congress and bullied them into passing it. The Patriot Act is one of the worst pieces of legislation ever rammed through our Congress. It's a law so vague and sweeping that it can barely be enforced. You are responsible for it and it is pure garbage. It's done no good except to prove that you and your people are bent on destroying the First Amendment.

Then you instructed our troops to invade Afghanistan, purportedly to kill or capture the terrorist mastermind, Osama bin Laden. Here is the ultimate fraud. Your family ties to the bin Laden's are deep and obvious. You sent our troops on a wild goose chase and the proof is that Osama is still at large. It's difficult to wrap one's mind around the thought that one man could evade the most powerful military force in the world for more than FOUR YEARS. FOUR DAMN YEARS, MR. BUSH. You are a liar and a complete failure.

In 2003, you disgusted the entire civilized world by invading Iraq based on fake intelligence. You scared the American public with images of mushroom clouds (remember that, Mr. Bush?), bio-terror and evil men in turbans. ALL LIES and you know it. You wasted billions of dollars and thousands of lives in your adventure in the Middle East. And what was your goal, George? Oil? Money? Power? You've failed at all of those. What you have in Iraq is a world class catastrophe. But of course, that doesn't matter to you and your friends. You steal the money meant to "reconstruct" Iraq, you put our soldiers in harm's way for no good reason, and you smear the good name of my country. You are a terrorist, a thief, and fully dishonorable person.

I could go on and on dissecting the various sickening aspects of your leadership, but that would be a waste of time. You have enriched the lives of your friends and supporters at the expense of the American public. You have silenced and attacked your critics with smear campaigns and lies. You have murdered thousands of American citizens. You have wrecked the government structure, damaged the economy, destroyed the good faith of our citizenry and put MY NATION into debt so deep it will take decades from which to recover.

Today, you made a "major speech" on terrorism and Iraq, but not even the networks bothered to cover it. This should tell you something, Mr. Bush, if it can get through the narrow recesses of your pinhead mind. NOBODY CARES ANY MORE. Nobody believes a single word that comes out of your mouth. You are a complete and total fraud. You've done serious damage to MY COUNTRY and NOW it's time for you to go.

Now, it's time for you to go. Go back to your ranch and wait for the criminal indictments. Your buddy, Mr. DeLay has already been indicted. Your pal, Mr. Frist in under investigation by the SEC. Soon, your political advisor, the criminal Mr. Rove, will be indicted. Your Vice President's Chief of Staff, Mr. Libby, is about to be indicted. Everyone around you is under scrutiny and/or indictment. Soon the courts or the Congress will come for you.

If I thought I was addressing an intelligent man, I'd tell you to leave the country and flee to a far-away place where American laws don't apply and one which has no extradition treaty with the United States of America. But, alas, I am speaking to a simpleminded fool who thinks he's in control of MY COUNTRY. So, I'll assume you'll stick around and "stay the course," as you like to say.

That's not fine with me, really. You need to GO and soon, before you do more damage. The sad truth is that while you think you're running things, all the while running the economy and the country into the ground, most of us out here in America aren't buying your lies any more. You can think you're going to scare us with phony news about looters in New Orleans, terrorists targeting the country, and your new favorite, the pandemic avian flu. THEY ARE ALL LIES AND NOBODY WITH A FUNCTIONAL MIND BELIEVES THEM. You're not scaring us any more.

So take a hike, Mr. Bush. GET LOST. We've had more than enough of you. And take all your fascist friends, Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, Pat Robertson and the rest of your knot-headed gang with you. WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!

You've proven that you have no respect for MY COUNTRY and therefore, I'm taking it back. I don't support anything you've proposed or any laws that have been passed under your reign of terror. Once you're gone, the American people can go about the business of undoing all of your evil deeds and illicit laws and get back to being a great nation founded on sound principles of freedom, liberty and democratic tradition.

Do yourself and all of us a big favor: GET LOST!
