A True Leader

A leader above all must be well respected and one way to achieve this respect, as a leader, is by taking a stance on controversial issues or by performing actions that provoke change.  This change should be the grounds on which this leader stands at all costs.  For the same grounds will hold the followers of said leader.  The respect comes when the leader continues to hold the same significance or importance on the same issues without fear of losing followers.  There we have the difference between political and military leaders.

The more respected of the two leaders is without a doubt the military leader.  These leaders work very hard every day to become the leaders they are.  They carry out orders from higher ranked leaders with supreme efficiency and order.  Thereby creating better leaders from the training and hard work that are daily routines in their lives.  Rank by rank increments increase their position of leadership and are by far the most respectable leaders in our world today.

Our political leaders are respected because of their abilty to remain a leader without necessarily taking a stance or provoking change on any contraversal issues.  This is primarily because the political leader is trying to lead a much wider range of followers.  They can not take a stance on issues as this would narrow the people following them, and in politics it is the people that keep you as their leader.

Not so long ago Martin Luther King made a speech that changed America for the better and put us on a promising road for a future filled with freedoms afforded to all Americans.  As we headed for that quest for freedom we all held hands and took a deep breath that the ways of our past would help guide us to the new found joy that civil rights bring in a democracy.  However, with the passing of “The Patriot Act” America has declined to fulfill that promise of freedom and has instead sanitized the war, world disasters and even an attack on our own countries soil. They have pulled out the seams of this country so that what was once a tightly knit democracy has now become became loose and frayed. She almost certainly will come unraveled and lose her soft satin lining once custom tailored to permit industries rough edges to be worn casually. Eventually she will become known only as rags.  Used up, torn apart, ripped and stained from a tainted few until left with only dust covered mountains.  Our beautiful democracy treated like dirt has been swept under the carpet to hide the embarrassing implications of wrongdoing in our own leaders rule.   Our civil rights have been completely ignored, invaded, revised, or re-written to rid our democracy of anything that resembles freedom.  There was a time this country was headed in the right direction, but that was a very long time ago.  In the early 70’s the government began its segregated busing for schools which was the first of many events that would begin to separate the communities until they were only individuals within a community.  Boys and Girls used to walk to school together and know who their neighbors were.  Now no one knows and no one cares to know that the only way they will walk together in this bleak future is chained by the ankles in our “oh so well financed” prisons. These days it is much harder to stand up against this entity, we call our administration. Ironic when the only administering they do is by delivering our children drugs in our streets we call home. It has been taking place so long now that drugs are now sharing the burden of supporting Wall Street. Worst of all, these drugs are also keeping America asleep while the few elite names in our history books run off with all the profits at the cost of our nation and its own delusional citizens.  Martin Luther King’s dreams of creating equal opportunity for the black man have become a reality.  However the poverty in America has not changed much at all, nor has the police brutality.  We do see more black men getting their share of wealth in music and sports and that is a great accomplishment and a long way from the great speech he gave that day. Even politics have black men as far up as being a candidate for president of the free world. That too, is a wonderful thing, but America is beginning a slow and steady decline of freedoms that once could be said to be equally shared among all her citizens. Only now do we see that these laws and restrictions have become optional for any aristocrat high enough on societies ladder. We see them breaking laws and engaging in war crimes daily while simultaneously re-writing our constitution to fit their own monstrous crimes. Making a new set of rules and guidelines to live by will not excuse the crimes they committed unless we accept their new rules as current policy.  We have to ask ourselves if these rules are something we want to accept in our lives.  Things like torturing people when we may or may not have any real prudent evidence against them in the first place.  It is very hard to see through the hype and propaganda fed to us through this new conglomerate media machine, red tape, eyes in the sky and spies on our streets in the form of pictures, but all of it is growing clearer everyday that a very real military law is slowly creeping in our open borders and soon will strike at the heart of our United States. I do not think his speech is still affecting America.  You could actually use his speech again today, by leaving out just a few sentences and it is still valid in today’s world and lack of freedom within it. I know that this country affords many freedoms that so few others enjoy, and just being able to voice my opinion open and freely is something for which we should all be grateful.  However, if we are not careful these words could swiftly become the last breath of fresh air we take before becoming tangled up in the frazzled edges that exist today.  However if individuals who want to make a difference grab just one loose thread created by this administration we can all pull it back together.  Hold tight to your own beliefs and do not waver from the things you know are right.  Watch closely for their evil sometimes strays in to our own backyards and if we are not careful we could easily fall prey to it.

Our democracy has inaugurated pirates to repeat past mistakes we have already learned. The streets of New York have been used like its playground to blame for the evil when the tables are turned. The first phase of their powers took just a few hours, Bush sat in the schoolhouse while our towers burned. Then remained through the danger, as if nothing seemed stranger, to remain with the children after what he had learned.

In just a short while, and in a demolition style, our towers imploded and the story commenced.  We were told from Osama, but all through the drama, he remains
free but we watched Hussein Lynched.

The lies have exploded, our policies corroded, each word that you speak is senseless and untrue. Your only true policy is fear of democracy, as you re-write what we stand for according to you. You are paying off media, outlets and reporters, to withhold anything that has its own view.  We ask for a reason, your acts become treason, stating we would agree, “If we knew what you knew”.


War crimes are committed, torture is now admitted, and the commanders now face a brand new challenge. With no
Geneva commention, it has created new tension, to calm the blue soldiers who seek and avenge.  You words leak venom, through every addendum to policies by this administration.  Still nothing, to show for, this incredibly slow war, if what we have seen is a true demonstration.
 They have made “free speech” a “no speech zone”. Habeas corpus, the cornerstone, “for Americas laws, is as good as you get”.  The right to know a reason they have chosen to arrest you, it is very American to have the great writ. Still this administration, without hesitation, removes habeas corpus somehow to fight terror.  Removing this right, should have put up a fight, from Americans who saw this incredible error. Some leftists reporters, say drugs from our borders, have links that tie our own Cheney and Bush, would explain two patrol men, locked up for their role in arresting a drug lord for drugs that they push. 

They pay off the media outlets, reporters and think tanks. They fire district attorneys that do not share their views, the propaganda’s so thick it sticks to our shoes.  The views of the few become the facts of the many. Individual reporters fight the embedded view. Stories used to be filtered but never were censored; stories once primetime are now kept from you. There are Journalists with photos but no photojournalists. Stories have become neutered, fixed on words filled with fear. Some even implanted, like September 11, No interviews with anyone asking real questions here.   Do not mention dead soldiers, death tolls, or coffins. No pictures of the war, or drills on 7/7, do not use the word invasion, instead call it occupied. Or how the same eerie drills ran on 9-eleven. Lose all our emails along with a smooth trillion. While sneaking a billion packed on crates on a ship.  Lie again about weapons of our own mass construction and then use the same chemicals on more than one trip. No one mention Fallujeh we did not just spray napalm.  M-22 is just white dust at best.  Bush decides he is the decider and he de-sides how he is doing.  His mind is made-up, to the wrong choice again. His final decision is that he has not yet decided. Either you agree with these decisions or the terrorist win.  He accomplishes nothing but he has drained all our resources. In addition, spread out our Forces incredibly thin. We hear temporary involvement, and build permanent bases.  Announce mission accomplished, but increase troops again. No levels or benchmarks we know our results, and repeat the same mistakes until there is no end. 

Our results? Low ended! Our resources? Gone! We have no real advantage and we have no more friends. 
 Our future is bleak and tomorrow uncertain. But, they have certainly cashed the blank check we gave. How can we give what is readily taken.  You use men like toy soldiers until they lie in their grave.  I cannot fight for you. I will rise against you.  The policies you offer I do not choose to save.  You may be the president, but you cheated and bought it, with your Arabian friend’s money and oil, you accomplished nothing, you are the disaster, and one day you will stand trial on American soil.
