Below is a short, concise essay by one of my favorite cogitators, Adrian Douglas. Although I find the entire piece relevant, it closes with yet another endorsement for Ron Paul.

Independence from which "King George"? By Adrian Douglas
As Americans celebrate this Fourth of July they should contemplate the current state of their government.
Greg Palast of the BBC has obtained 500 of the thousands of "missing e-mails" that the Administration claims have disappeared from White House computers. These were instructions to various officials to "cage" democratic voters in order to rig the 2004 elections. Ohio was lost by John Kerry on the official vote count while the Exit Poll showed Kerry had won! Exit polls are extremely accurate because they ask "how did you cast your vote?" It appears that George rules by some self-proclaimed birth right not by the popular vote of the people. Isn’t this the definition of a Monarch?
King George just commuted the prison sentence of Scooter Libby such that he will do no time behind bars for lying to a Grand Jury and obstruction of justice. These are serious crimes which will now go unpunished. The whole justice system can only work if people are obliged to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Libby is a lawyer and knows very well this fundamental tenant. King George, through his actions, has reduced the importance of perverting the course of justice to less than that of driving on a suspended license that received so much attention recently. Even Miss Hilton did 23 days! But the Royal Knights are above the law.
But this is not the only tampering with the judicial system. King George and his courtiers are being investigated for having removed Attorneys because of their desire to investigate Republican corruption and replace them with pro-Bush Attorneys by Royal Appointment.
The Royal Court of King George is refusing to hand over documents that relate to eavesdropping on American Citizens without having used the correct Judicial System procedures of obtaining a warrant. King George has cited executive privilege.
Vice President Cheney has claimed by Royal Decree that his office is not part of the Executive branch of the Government, riding roughshod with his cavalry over that quaint document called the "Constitution".
And just like many Kings of Yore, King George has led his country into War. Does anyone remember the royal slip of the tongue after 911 when he proclaimed he would mount a "crusade" against terrorism?
It now appears that all the justifications given for going to War in Iraq were false. It appears that King George just wanted some foreign real estate to plunder. Bloody battles fought for the sake of building an Empire are viewed as the hallmarks of tyrants, but a small name change to "Nation Building" can certainly fool the proletariat for a while!
In 1988, The Washington Times ran an article about the royal ties between the Bush family and all 60 royal families of Europe. It stated, "Vice President George Bush is a distant cousin of Queen Elizabeth, 13th cousin twice removed, and has blood ties with every other European royal family on or off the throne" according to Harold Brooks-Baker who publishes Burke's Peerage which is a directory of British aristocracy. Furthermore the publisher stated, "Without any shadow of doubt, Vice President Bush is connected to more imperial, royal and noble houses than any previous president."
There appears to be something in the genes of he who would be King!
231 years after the Declaration of Independence from England, the Royal Court of King George seems to have as much respect for the Constitution as the last one did!
The only way that Government can exert tyranny over the people is to control their money. The Government has hijacked the financial and monetary system through the "strong dollar policy" which was essentially a suppression of the gold price. They have enslaved the American people with credit, more credit, and even more credit and are now repossessing their homes because the bankers have sucked them dry.
Thomas Jefferson warned of what would happen.
"The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." -Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
I have no political leanings for any particular party but from a big picture perspective this country needs to regain its moral compass, and reassert the freedoms and liberties that were afforded to all citizens under the Constitution. The only Presidential candidate who has the credentials to do this is Ron Paul.
My best wishes for this Independence Day July 4, 2007. Adrian Douglas
