    U.S. Government Ignores Geneva Convention

    Dear Editor,

    It is intolerable for a U.S. citizen to have to live under a government that refuses to support the Geneva Convention, international law, U.N. decisions, test-ban treaties, the Kyoto Accord, civil rights, an independent judiciary system, federal law and the Constitution of the United States. It is equally intolerable to have a government that opposes science, birth control, Plan B pills, evolution, conservation, alternative energy and preservation of endangered species while refusing to take action against global warming, acid rain and smokestack pollution.

    It is treasonous to support a government that favors unjust and unjustified warfare, torture of prisoners, illegal detentions, war profiteering, sky-high trade deficits, illegal surveillance, corporate control of elections, political and corporate corruption, dishonest federal agencies and governmental unaccountability.

    It is intolerable for a U.S. citizen to have to live under such a government.

    As Abraham Lincoln said in 1848, “”The right to rise up and shake off the existing government is a most sacred right.””

    The time has obviously come when this right should be exercised.
