Revolution's Time-Warp

Obama's pastor, the Rev Jeremiah Wright, might be one of the most inflammatory rhetoricians among church leaders, but he is far from being alone in that august group in his pro-nation and anti-govt stances.

I never forget that it was church leadership that seemed to tilt the balance from compromise and patience with England in the 1770s to the fiery brimstone of American Revolution -- before the Declaration Of Independence, but with sermons that breathed the fire of everything that Thomas Jefferson would pack into the DOI.

The Most Reverend Wright has stepped out of the time-warp, fully fleshed.

We need a revolution -- peaceful if possible, but a revolution nonetheless.

Now, as then, only predator elitists and the blinded servile object to pronouncements of the gross immorality and illegality of the Regime. Then, it was far-away and insane King George. Now, it's up-close, insane, and utterly fascist Usurper George.

I take Rev Wright's thundering as a good sign, pointing into the American future.

Good points that you make in this short piece. Even more fortunately, I have been stumbling around political and atheist forums where people are cautiously starting to open up about the fact that they agree virtually with everything that Wright has been documented as saying.

Russell --

Sorry for the delay in responding to your good comment. I'm caught in wall-to-wall negotiations with the VA -- administratively over my claim for service-connected disability (Reiter's syndrome and ankylosing spondylitis, together) and medically over recent episodes of incompetence and reckless endangerment at the OK City med center -- involving their non-diagnosis and non-treatment of my rapidly progressing and body-wrecking Reiter's and AS. (I think there'll have to be legal consequences for that one.) Not enough time left over to stay on top of the political project.

Rev Wright will have a very tall status if enough voices combine to bring back measuring our nation against the Declaration Of Independence principles. That way lays revolution -- peaceful, hopefully -- but revolution as surely now as it did in the 1770s.

Doesn't mean we should elect Obama. There's only one life-long, social justice champion on the field. If the American people don't elect him president in Election 2008, they are as stupid as I think they are. His name is Ralph Nader.

Hope your medical turns positive! Interesting site:
Is this a possibility to "correct our constitution and add I&BR ?
(Always looking for a fix)
Would think after this 8 years the majority would want some control of the runaways ------------
