Calling All Patriots!

Calling All Patriots!

Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram

America’s horror and our responsibility.

What evil gave rise to secret wiretaps, secret courts, secret prisons, torture, war crimes, the trampling of our Bill of Rights and way of life?

America under Bush committed these acts in defiance of its Constitution. Torturing innocent humans isn’t pointless evil if the idea serves to enslave the passive citizens of the United States into individual prisons of fear and inaction.

Who will call it by its name? How much deeper into lock-down before thought prisons become stone prisons, and the fantasy of escape is forgotten?

Stand up America in fearsome non-violence immediately. Show the world the American ideal. Move, now. Our responsibility is to the future.

The straw man has no brain, no heart, and no courage. If need be, I will be silenced as an individual, in my own name, Steven Mark Welch.

I will not go quietly, as part of some faceless mass. I will not be corrupted by proximity to an evil vacuum.

Pray! Speak! Write! Publish! Assemble! March! These are the first of our inalienable rights as citizens of the United States of America. Never before have they been threatened as now.

Stand Up. Speak now, or forever hold your peace.
