GOP Shell Games

Karl Rove, White House political wizard, is still safe behind his soiled cape. Free to continue his political slight-of-hand illusions for the Bush administration.

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has told Rove that he does not expect to seek charges against him in connection with the outing of CIA undercover officer Valerie Plame.

This leaves former aide to VP Dick Cheney, "Scooter" Libby, twisting alone in the wind on charges of perjury, false statements and obstruction of justice. The 2 1/2 year Fitzgerald investigation has yet to charge anyone with the actual CIA operatives-endangering leak.

As Rove and the Bush administration continue to "dodge the bullet" from the legal system, our "checks and balances" safeguards are being negated by the GOP choke hold over the executive and legislative branches of government.

If you can bear to learn more about how the GOP operates, read the heavily footnoted investigative article by Robert Kennedy, Jr. in Rolling Stone, "Was the 2004 Election Stolen?".

For it's not just total power that corrupts, but also the pursuit of that total power.

It is time for the people to restore this country. The Republican Party is no longer the party of small government.
