Today's Reason To Drive Out the Bush Regime

Thursday, October 27, 2005

On the withdrawal of Harriet Miers’ nomination to the Supreme Court:

While Harriet Miers is no champion of the fundamental rights of the people, the withdrawal of her nomination is extremely ominous.

Simply put, Miers was forced to step down because the hardcore base of the bush regime demands an even more aggressive, rapid, and openly fascist remaking of society. Faced with mounting difficulties, bush has signaled that he will now move even more quickly and forcefully in this direction.

The Miers withdrawal drives home the urgent need for people to be in the streets Nov. 2nd, the anniversary of Bush's re-election, raising the slogan “Drive Out the Bush Regime.” Silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. Unless people mount a decisive challenge to this whole direction – NOW – we will find ourselves in a far worse position once the dust clear on this nomination.

At the same time, the fact that people do not want this fascist overhaul of society underlines the real possibility to drive out the bush regime, repudiate his political program, and reverse the whole direction he has been taking society. This can only happen through the mobilization of millions of people who know in their hearts that in fact they must, and are coming to see that they can, change the course of history through their own independent historical action.

November 2nd it begins.
