Whats In Your Water?
The EPA has identified over 800 pollutants in our waters! Do you know what is in your water?
In the last four years, the Bush Administration has consistently demonstrated a disregard for
civil rights by supporting discriminatory practices. It started from the Florida election debacle,
where hundreds of thousands of minority votes were strategically tossed out. More recently, Bush
has supported legislation that makes discrimination based on faith legal, and also attempted to
include an amendment to the Constitution that would essentially discriminate against groups in the U.S.
The Bush Immigration Policy
Does President Bush have hispanics best interests at heart? Voting Registration for hispanics could be more than
just a vote for the presidency. It could also be the governments way of tracking hispanics for later deportation.
Chickens Come Home To Roost
Up to 90% of the Iraqi detainees were imprisoned falsely. Imagine if one or more of these prisoners were family or
friends of yours. How would you feel with no contact or information on them, except for constant rumors? In one
Are Women Dry Leaves on a Windy Day?
Being the underdog is no fun, but having the President treat women like dogs without rights is criminal.
As half of the population we must know our rights and fight for them.
Bush's Mission for God
President Bush seems to be hung up on his job as President being a Mission for God. He seems to think it is
his responsibility to make the US, as well as the World, full of people with "good Christian values".
The only problem is that is violates our rights of Separation of Church and State.
Bush Policy Encourages Anti-American Sentiment
The Bush Administration has fostered suspicion among the citizens of the United States with their
"War on Terror." Just another way to keep fear alive in the US. This, in turn, can cause an increase
in the discrimination existing between Americans.
Love is a reason for unions of marriage. If two people truly care for each other is it anyone else's business
whether those two people are legally married or not?
The United States of Ministry
Religious beliefs are personal matters that are sacred to each one of us. No one has the right to force their
religion on another person. The fate of our Faith should not be decided by our government.
Minority Votes Don't Count
What happened in Florida last election was disgraceful. In addition to undermining democracy, another
issue needs to be addressed, discrimination. The fact is, the majority of these lost votes came from
predominately Black and Hispanic areas. Approximately 1 million black and other minorities voted, and
their ballots were thrown away. The Bushes have successfully silenced and discriminated against the minority vote.
Because Of Your Religious Beliefs, You May Be Discriminated Against
The Bush Administration's "faith based" initiative makes it legal, for religious organizations
to legally discriminate employment by preferring members of their own religion. Bush calls this a
religious liberty, but no matter how you look at it, anytime anyone is judged by the basis of race,
sex, or religion, it's discrimination.
Our Civil Rights Under Threat
The Civil Rights that protect us against discrimination are under threat. The Bush Administration
has not only been rejecting the next generation of civil-rights protections, but also, actively eroding
existing civil rights protections. From weakening the Civil Rights of U.S. workers, to undercutting
anti-discrimination efforts through budget decisions, our Civil Rights are under threat.
Writing Discrimination into the U.S. Constitution?
Bush's support of amending the Constitution to explicitly limit marriage to man and woman is clearly
intended to ostracize gay marriages. And regardless of if you are for or against gay marriages,
we all need to consider the fact that such an amendment is essentially denying the rights of a specific
group only, and that is discrimination. Many conservatives against gay marriages, also agree
with this and believe that such a decision should be left to individual states.
A Brief Background on Civil Rights
Civil Rights are based on the principals of the constitution in which America was founded.
They guarantee our rights to live freely, democratically and without discrimination. Some of
our Civil Rights include, the freedom of speech, press, assembly, the right to vote, freedom from
involuntary servitude, and the right to equality in public places.
