Neocon "Philosopher" Urges Bush to Declare Himself "President-for-Life" by Emulating Julius Caesar With A Military Coup d'état

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons. - Philip Atkinson, neo-crazy author.
UPDATE: This is not the first time this same author has advocated genocide and enslavement of a foreign population. Back in May, in another article published on the Family Security Matters site, Atkinson advocated the enslavement or execution of all illegal aliens and the invasion and subjugation of Mexico. Hit that hyperlink above to read the full story, which I have likewise preserved.

So, I think it safe to say that this article advocating extermination of Iraqis and an American dictatorship was not some mistake that simply slipped through the cracks, but was perfectly A-O.K. with the neocons at FSM until they started catching flack for it from bloggers on the broader internet. -Stewart Rhodes

NOTE: I know it sounds like something written up by The Onion, but this neo-crazy
Philip Atkinson, Contributing Editor of Family Security Matters, published by The Family Security Foundation, Inc., actually thinks it is time to just scrap the Constitution, scrap elections, scrap the other branches of government entirely, and scrap any remaining restrictions on presidential power and have Bush, with the backing of the military, just declare himself El Presidente Bussshhh for life. Really. This guy is serious.

Well, at least he is honest. As I have written about before, other neo-crazy government supremacists try to "re-interpret" the Constitution to give the president absolute power, as if the Founding Generation, in all the debates about the proposed Constitution, somehow missed Article II granting totalitarian war powers to the executive branch. This guy at least comes out and admits that his brave new fascist world has nothing whatsoever to do with the Republic the men of April 19, 1775 founded when they stood their ground against tyranny.

This article first appeared on the Family Security Foundation, Inc. website, but has since been pulled. You can read the google cache page of the article here.

Since Digg will not let me submit the article in cache format, I have pasted it below, to preserve it and make it available for Digg readers to read in its entirety. Freako Phillip Atkinson can sue me if he doesn't like it. Fucking traitorous fascist pig. I consider him a mortal enemy of the Constitutional Republic I swore an oath to defend as a soldier, and I will treat him accordingly.

PS - I'm not sure this guy even knows the difference between Julius Caesar, who was assassinated by Roman Senators in 44 B.C. , and his nephew, Augustus Caesar (
Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus).

While democratic government is better than dictatorships and theocracies, it has its pitfalls. FSM Contributing Editor Philip Atkinson describes some of the difficulties facing President Bush today.

Conquering the Drawbacks of Democracy

By Philip Atkinson

President George W. Bush is the 43rd President of the United States. He was sworn in for a second term on January 20, 2005 after being chosen by the majority of citizens in America to be president.

Yet in 2007 he is generally despised, with many citizens of Western civilization expressing contempt for his person and his policies, sentiments which now abound on the Internet. This rage at President Bush is an inevitable result of the system of government demanded by the people, which is Democracy.

The inadequacy of Democracy, rule by the majority, is undeniable – for it demands adopting ideas because they are popular, rather than because they are wise. This means that any man chosen to act as an agent of the people is placed in an invidious position: if he commits folly because it is popular, then he will be held responsible for the inevitable result. If he refuses to commit folly, then he will be detested by most citizens because he is frustrating their demands.

When faced with the possible threat that the Iraqis might be amassing terrible weapons that could be used to slay millions of citizens of Western Civilization, President Bush took the only action prudence demanded and the electorate allowed: he conquered Iraq with an army.

This dangerous and expensive act did destroy the Iraqi regime, but left an American army without any clear purpose in a hostile country and subject to attack. If the Army merely returns to its home, then the threat it ended would simply return.

The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life.

The simple truth that modern weapons now mean a nation must practice genocide or commit suicide. Israel provides the perfect example. If the Israelis do not raze Iran, the Iranians will fulfill their boast and wipe Israel off the face of the earth. Yet Israel is not popular, and so is denied permission to defend itself. In the same vein, President Bush cannot do what is necessary for the survival of Americans. He cannot use the nation's powerful weapons. All he can do is try and discover a result that will be popular with Americans.

As there appears to be no sensible result of the invasion of Iraq that will be popular with his countrymen other than retreat, President Bush is reviled; he has become another victim of Democracy.

By elevating popular fancy over truth, Democracy is clearly an enemy of not just truth, but duty and justice, which makes it the worst form of government. President Bush must overcome not just the situation in Iraq, but democratic government.

However, President Bush has a valuable historical example that he could choose to follow.

When the ancient Roman general Julius Caesar was struggling to conquer ancient Gaul, he not only had to defeat the Gauls, but he also had to defeat his political enemies in Rome who would destroy him the moment his tenure as consul (president) ended.

Caesar pacified Gaul by mass slaughter; he then used his successful army to crush all political opposition at home and establish himself as permanent ruler of ancient Rome. This brilliant action not only ended the personal threat to Caesar, but ended the civil chaos that was threatening anarchy in ancient Rome – thus marking the start of the ancient Roman Empire that gave peace and prosperity to the known world.

If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results: popularity with his military; enrichment of America by converting an Arabian Iraq into an American Iraq (therefore turning it from a liability to an asset); and boost American prestiege while terrifying American enemies.

He could then follow Caesar's example and use his newfound popularity with the military to wield military power to become the first permanent president of America, and end the civil chaos caused by the continually squabbling Congress and the out-of-control Supreme Court.

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.

Its sickening and shocking to read things like this. Its hard for me to understand. These folks are doing whatever the &^$%$&*^% they want to do and nobody seems to care, or even think that they can change things. For the apathetic, no sympathy for what lies ahead but its sad to see those passionately trying to protect our country get the same.

I am not surprised to know this is what neocons are thinking; I am surprised that they would have the nerve to make it public.

Maybe they don't quite understand that "internets" thing.

Anonymous, your comment reminds me of the tail end of a very famous quote by Alexander Solzhenitsyn - ..."We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

But I feel sorry for both the apathetic and for those who are trying to stop the slide toward despotism. Stewart

Paul, that is not a surprise. Google Cache is not forever. However, since I have it posted in full on my blog, with screen shots, it is not going away. Ha,ha!
