The World Can’t Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!

Mobilize for November 2, 2005!

Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

Your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it.

Your government puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

Your government is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

Your government suppresses the science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.

Your government is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.

Your government enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

People look at all this and think of Hitler—and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.

Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge, and people sense this.

There is not going to be some magical “pendulum swing.” People who steal elections and believe they’re on a “mission from God” will not go without a fight.

There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into “leaders” who tell us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, and actually serves to demobilize people.

But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn— or be forced—to accept. There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it.

And there is a way. We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world. We need more than fighting Bush’s outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime’s program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history.

To that end, on November 2, the first anniversary of Bush’s “re-election”, we will take the first major step in this by organizing a truly massive day of resistance all over this country. People everywhere will walk out of school, they will take off work, they will come to the downtowns and town squares and set out from there, going through the streets and calling on many more to JOIN US. They will repudiate this criminal regime, making a powerful statement: “NO! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!”

November 2 must be a massive and public proclamation that WE REFUSE TO BE RULED IN THIS WAY. November 2 must call out to the tens of millions more who are now agonizing and disgusted. November 2 will be the beginning—a giant first step in forcing Bush to step down, and a powerful announcement that we will not stop until he does so—and it will join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.

This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, they will to try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.

The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.

These next two months are crucial. The call you are reading has to get out to millions right away—on the internet, passed out as flyers in communities, published as ads in newspapers. DO NOT WAIT!! GET ORGANIZED!! If you agree with this statement, add your name to it!!! And do more than that: send it to friends, get them to sign it, organize a meeting, take it to your church, your school, your union, your health club, your barber shop, to concerts and libraries and family gatherings, everywhere you go. Raise money, lots of money. Get people together, make plans to be there on November 2, and to build for it.

oh god.

for such a massively forwarded email it seems to have horrible sentence structure and comma placement. the amount of myth and fallacy in these claims are laughable as well. and what is with calling the Bush Admin. a regime?

Regime: A mode or system of rule or management; character of government, or of the prevailing social system.

quit the evil connotation of the word.

VIVA LA REVOLUTION!!! haha

From Greensboro NC

We handed out maybe 150 copies of the leaflet at a local farmers' market in Greensboro on Saturday. On balance, the response was good--it was DEFINITELY worth doing--despite the hostility we got from some. We stayed outside the market at the main entrance and caught people as they were coming and going. Several people took many copies to give to friends and to take to their churches...

I think we saw some of the potential of breaking out of the usual way of doing things--going to meetings with the same old people, going to forums with the same old people, and having potluck dinners with the same old people :) Don't get me wrong, I love 'em, but we're stuck in a rut! And even though some people yelled in our faces while ripping up our flyer, or balled them up and threw them at us, we got out there. We made an impact. We created a buzz.
This is how they are doing in my state if anyone is wondering, as a matter of fact I'm an hour away from this city! Welcome to my state worldcantwait.org! Your welcome back anytime! :tomato:

Wouldn't it be great justice if Jeb Bush got elected President in 2008? Do you think all the Liberals that lied when they said they would move if President Bush got elected would actually do it? I doubt it...........

I think your tin-foil hat might be just a little too tight today.
Once again, this is nothing more than Michael Moore-esque fallacies with no substantial evidence. You seriously have to be a crack-pot to believe that the election was stolen "yet again."

They couldn't prove this beyond a reasonable doubt with the 2000 election, and trying to make this case now for the second term is just an excuse in futility and makes you along with all your "brethen" look pathetic.

I have to wonder If you held Clinton to the same standard when he was bombing Baghdad. Were you trying to get Clinton impeached when we went into remove Milosevic on the pretense of finding "mass graves" and didn't find any? My guess is no.

Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights:

You simply have to look at the Geneva Convention to see the truth of this. The United States invaded a soveriegn nation on the basis of lies (WMD), without the okay of the UN (this constitutes a war of aggression under the Geneva Conventions, which is a war crime). Further the United States used a ten year period of bombing and sanctions to destroy the ability of Iraq to resist and then came in with the largest and most advanced array of weaponry the world has ever seen. That is why this war is the most cowardly war in all of history.

In terms of having other countries in their sights there have been two recent reports one by Seymour Hersh and one by Scott Ritter that report that the preparations for a war in Iran have already begun, and this includes the positioning of troops, the use of commando raids into Iran, flying over Iranian airspace, and the support of terrorist groups to help destabilize Iran.

your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it:

The Gonzalez memo is only one blatant example of this, but the increasingly clear fact that the policy of torture is an administration policy and that they have scapegoated a couple MP's, while at the same time arguing for the necessity of using torture shows their commitment to it and their justification of it.

http://worldcantwait.org/Justifying torture.htm

your government puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night:

There have been 10's of thousands of muslims and people of arabic or south asian descent who have been disapeared in this country. Jailed in secret with no access to attorney's and never charged with a crime. Most recently the Supreme Court actually made this a constitutional action, essentially rubber stamping Bush's assertion of executive power to end habias corpus. Today the U.S. government can jail anyone indefinately, without charges and without recourse. They say we should just trust them with this power, but you'd have to be insane to do so.

Your government is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule:

http://worldcantwait.org/Theocracy.htm

There's so much more to corroborate all this, but I don't have the time to search all over the place for it.

These are the facts the Bush Regime, with the complicity of everyone in government including the Democrats is creating the architecture of fascism in this country. Long held rights and rules have been discarded and they're planning on discarding even more, and they're consistently using fear to railroad the people into silence. Today habias corpus and the 4th Amendment mean nothing. Posse comitatus means nothing. Northcom has now been given free reign to collect domestic intelligence and to use military force to police the U.S. We have a national id card. We have secret police and secret courts.

All of this can be found in major press sources, in court documents etcetera.

I'm not one to argue any of this would be gone if there were democrats in the whitehouse. Alot of this stuff has been growing for the last thirty years and there truly is a bipartisan consensus on this.

In terms of the elections, I won't say that the last election was stolen more than any other election in U.S. history. But the 2000 election was decided by the Supreme Court, which has absolutely no role in deciding elections according to the Constitution. In fact in deciding the case the five justices siding with Bush had to go completely against their professed belief in states rights, and in their power grab they tried to get away with a clear conscience by claiming the case didn't set precedent and was only relevant to the single situation. The 2000 election was stolen.
