Down with Proposition 8 and the Bush Program as a whole!

Over the last eight years the Bush Regime has codified a comprehensive reactionary political program: openly whipping up anti-gay sentiment; creationism being taught in science class; the “Partial Birth Abortion Act,” based on biblical literalism that women are nothing more than incubators and should have no control over their reproductive organs; calls for an end to the constitutional separation of church and state; endless wars; violating previously sacrosanct civil liberties and civil rights; surveillance over us all.

Millions were thrilled to see the Republicans voted out of office.

But who is to stop the Bush Program when Obama promotes finding common ground with Christian Fascists, war criminals and torturers? While Obama said he did not support Prop 8, he’s stated publicly many times that marriage should be between heterosexuals only. He should have called for stopping Prop 8 instead of straddling the fence. Obama in fact has pledged to extend Bush's faith-based initiatives that have granted over $2.2 billion to religious organizations.

We Will Not Accept The Bush Program No Matter Who The President Is!

Your government does not want what you want. That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn, or be forced, to accept. What is needed is not a minor course correction, what is needed is not some meaningless "change" we are allowed to believe in. What is needed is a radical change in direction brought about by people acting outside the strangling confines of official politics. Look at what official politics has given us!

We believe that people of conscience must take responsibility for what their own governments do.

We call on all people living in the United States to RESIST the trajectory of wars, reaction and repression that has been loosed on the world by the Bush Regime and a complicit Congress. We choose to make common cause with the people of the world by extending a hand to those suffering from these policies and by showing our solidarity in word and deed. Join with us.
