Ghostly images of liberal Thomas Jefferson’s words,
John Hancock signature for American independence,
Signers of the free speech Constitution, of freed people,
Haunting declaration, governmental checks ‘n balances,
Three branches supporting Lady Liberties Bill of Rights.

They call it a 911 day Patriot Act, where citizens lost.
Totalitarian spying entered to dictate Republican policy,
Corporate type of creative Halliburton accounting,
No bid policy of invading our houses without warrant,
To be above the law of the land by executive privilege.

Slaughter of a word Patriot that never gave in to tyranny,
Colonial Patriots would fight to the death for its spirit.
That 911 Politicians want to bankrupt the working of
The greatest constitutional words of all time uniting US.
Religion of faith joining the diversity of “We the People”.

Civil rights slaughter by Republican Conservative Congress.
That the pulpit is now the presidency of segregated wealth.
Human right slaughter of International and American treaties,
White “Father Knows Best” of Fifties segregated moral values,
Reversing ourselves to an apartheid principle of class separation.

Lord, the hurricanes has shown the divine truth of the streets.
President’s “War on Poverty” diminishing food stamp spending,
While increasing Halliburton’s presence bulldozing hopes.
Exportation of exploited citizens, shipped off to only be forgotten,
Left to fend on broken promises of the “Great White Father”.

Oh the tears, of the true Patriots of the past, whose graves fought
For the principles, they are now taking away by “At Will” laws.
Terminating workers of the Constitutional values of labored law,
Those we teach our children to defend with our blood of patriotism.
Now drafted by executive order of Weapons Of Mass Destruction.

Truth the religion of pure conscience, something politicians forget.
Compassion of green-blooded corporate lobbing political corruption,
Corporate government of creative accounting ‘n open door policies,
For suckers who believe in honesty but find Watergate conspiracies.
Politicians taking our Patriots past, present, and future, defaming them!

Poetic words of American Patriots imprisoned by executive order.
Words that must be spied upon, put on “Do not fly American” lists.
Poetry that will terminate the creative art within a liberal mind,
Given from Above and guaranteed as a Republican promise.
Words that will starve into the consciousness of Lady Liberal-ty.
Mr. W do not give me a ticket to conformity, the cost is too great.

Note: Please Congress tell me what books that I cannot read from the public library or possess in my own library for fear of my own country. Will books of the great Watergate fiasco now become obscene? Will reading it or any other book put me on a list as a traitor unable to be employed for being unpatriotic.

Congress has no right to use the word Patriot against US, among other words like freedom, democracy, truth, and others. We must change the terms to Presidential Republican Patriot, Presidential Republican Freedom, Presidential Republican Democracy, Presidential Republican truth and other Presidential Republican cloned words.

Cheney Act, Bush Act, Republican Act, McCarthy Act, Hoover Act, Watergate Act, so many names to use, but to shame our country by Patriot Act is obscene. A true Patriot would object to the use of that name with anything destroying the Constitution especially by a Presidential life sentence. That email, libraries, medical records, and private records be made available for political destruction for all time, look at the dirt of Texas politics they use now. That one has to be off the conservative blackball list in order to gain a living wage that artists would starve into conservative exiled existences. Like the past communist list, the liberal list would ban minds.

We must get a Constitutional Amendment that will ban our government from destroying civil liberties without the okay of all the states of the union that the “We the People” have to have a referendum never to abolish the human right of our citizens here and abroad. Each state must stand tall in states rights against the federalism of totalitarianism especially within the greater merger of world corporations into a governmental union like the adoption of Halliburton no bid contracts. Corporations must not become Presidential stooges of a White House handing over private data of intercepted freedoms of individual speech. That just by questioning for the truth of facts to come out after Weapons of Mass Destruction tactics of lies are used no one is terminated from their right to question their own government. That private emails of all American citizens, along with the European Union, and other countries be respected by laws demanding privacy from “At Will” attitudes by an American dictator. That law, spying, and even kidnapping are not inherited rights of a Republican Presidency.

Just think that all these words could cost me my constitutional freedoms for questioning from my Patriotic right of free speech. I was terminated for writing poetry, so will corporate workers lose their rights to question the exportation of American jobs, and the abortion happening to our schools. Why is it that religion wants to invade the public schools in prayers and intelligent design but abort they funding opting for segregated private religious schools of wealth and other segregated things. What words can I use for a Republican President when he banned all poetry from the White House? Can you please find out what poets he likes to read, or are they all too liberal for him, in need of being spied upon?

In exaggeration, could you imagine a country so divided by wealth that people on one side never fight the war they create for the Democracy of world commercialism that they use the other side of divided America to send off to war, so they can eat the words of freedom. It is like politicians wanting a war but excluding any of their family members to fight. True American Patriots, went to the front battle lines, and joined in the family of American independence, by putting their lives at risk.

It is scary that a President has the absolute power to override any law without the consent of Congress and the courts, absolute power of dictating their terms of Freedom and Democracy, using one meaning overseas and another under a Patriot Act. The True Patriot Act is always to question all the politicians without fear of termination to find a beauty of the divine truth that needs no more Patriotic questions or a Presidential pardon.

I wish I could sue Congress for degrading our departed Patriots, it is like comparing White House compassion, Congressional compassion, Republican compassion, Oil Company compassion, and Red Cross compassion. Only one bleed in the color of all its citizens hurricane needs, joining conservatives and liberal heartbeats of a love that unites with its compassion not divides within its discrimination.

Climbing Wings Of Democracy

Climb eagle wings, climb,
Claim your patch of blue sky.
That the dagger of freedom
Lives beyond horizontal time,
Penetrating eyes reaching out
To vertical extremes of questioning,
To find a pure truth in Democracy.
