Bush Creates Danger for All of Us

RECEIVED Wed., March 14, 2007

Dear Editor,
    Well another week, another letter. Before the Bush administration, I had never ever written a political letter in my life. We are in a dangerous time because the danger comes from within. I had felt the judicial branch was safe and off limits from political intrigue, but this is another dangerous Bushism. On Dec. 7, seven duly appointed Bush administration district attorneys were all fired on the same day. Then lies were told about their ability to perform officially. This is because they failed to give into political pressure to use their office to attack political opponents. No president has ever had the ability to place permanent interim district attorneys into office without any Senate approval. Also Bush fired people he appointed to office himself ... one more time, Bush fired guys he appointed into office himself, without just cause. We as a nation need to ask ourselves: How much longer can we stand by and do nothing? The question is: What is going well? Have we progressed or digressed? If you do not sense the change, then you have not been paying attention. We’ve had constitutional rights forfeited, unnecessary war in Iraq started, our wounded soldiers neglected, and now our justice system corrupted, and I can go on and on. Bush is becoming a luxury we can no longer afford, because it may already be too late.
