President (Not anyone's) --by
This is Not-My-President's Day because George
W. Bush is not my president—in fact, he's not anyone's president!!
We the people did not elect him—not across the nation, and not in
Florida. He was rejected for fear of the very acts he is now committing
against us. He was rejected, not elected, because he is against the people
and for the forces that oppose us. Because this usurper is NOT MY PRESIDENT,
not ANYONE'S PRESIDENT—WE MUST UNDO THE COUP!!!

Remember, the selection of Bush by means
of fraud, intimidation, propaganda and judicial injustice was necessary
for the G.O.P. and their backers because the country rejected him and
his policies. He was rejected, not elected, because he is an idiot, but
also because he is bad for the U.S. and bad for the world. Because the
majority rejected him THUGS AND SUPREME INJUSTICES intervened to rob us.
Because THUGS AND SUPREME INJUSTICES stopped the counting and robbed us
of our democratic process, we now have a tyrant who imposes his rejected
policies on us, not a president who enacts our will. He has no right to
rule—we must undo the coup!!!
The theft of our democracy "sets the
tone" for the Bush Occupation: His Occupation is an extension of
his naked grab of power: THEFT, FRAUD, VIOLENCE and the violation of the
national will are the "tone" that he has set in Washington.
Bush has reminded us that he is a dangerous man! Just as he brought fraud
and indignity to the White House by stealing it, he now brings fraud and
indignity by ignoring the will of the citizens. Bush has already proven
by stealing our democracy that he will stop at nothing, and now he sets
the stage and "sets the tone" to steal our reproductive prerogatives,
our wages, our health, our clean water, our air, our forests and our national
wildlife preserves. While Clinton was ACCUSED of stealing silverware from
the White House, Bush STOLE THE WHITE HOUSE ITSELF!!! Because he started
by stealing our democracy and he continues by stealing our hard-won rights
and advances—WE MUST UNDO THE COUP!!!
Bush is dangerous to world peace. Bush "set the tone" by bombing
Iraq before a month of the Occupation has elapsed. He will continue to
resort to military violence to distract from his fraudulence. He gained
power illegitimately, and he will use it illegitimately to cover up his
this theft. When the sunshine laws illuminate Florida, the bombs will
light on Iraq. Likewise, we must undo the coup!
Bush is dangerous to the conditions of people around the world. He will
soon fight for "fast-track" rip-off rights to negotiate international
trade agreements without Congressional approval. This is a dangerous proposition
indeed. Anti-labor, anti-environmental and anti-people treaties must not
be enacted by a usurper who has no right to rule in the first place, let
alone to decide the fate of billions of workers around the world. We must
undo the coup!
Not only does Bush have no mandate to commit any of these acts against
the citizens of the United States and the world, he has NO LEGITIMATE
RIGHT TO ANY EXECUTIVE ANY ACTIONS AT ALL.
As Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1804, "The patronage of Public Office
should no longer be confided to one who uses it for Active Opposition
to the National Will." Bush has stolen public office by opposition
to the national will, and he uses public office for opposition to the
national will. Therefore, if we are to be true to the founders of our
nation, WE MUST UNDO THE COUP.
