Self-proclaimed "President for Life" Bush and his supporters celebrate the begining of the Thousand Year Term

Washington D.C.- In a stunning move, President Bush has declared himself "President for Life" and announced numerous changes in the American way of life. Using his inaugural speech to tell the country about the new "Freedom Reforms", President for Life Bush spoke about the many things that will be changing, for the better. "Now is the time to show America's resolve, not only overseas but here on the homefront as well, you are either with the party, or against us." As protesters at the inauguration begin to protest and shout profanities at the president, members of the Department of Homeland Securitys', Freedom Legion quickly arrested them and they were swiftly placed in to large holding facilities. "We must show the terrorists a united America, without all this partisan squabbling." President for Life Bush said.

All citizens will now be required to carry identification cards, join the republican party, and become Christians. Newly appointed Minister of Truth Dick Cheney announced that starting next month, trials will be held for enemies of the state. "We have uncovered a plot at the Democratic National Headquarters and we were able to capture their fiery leader Howard Dean. Let the people of America breathe a sigh of relief, the terror of socialism is being extinguished." Other Democratic leaders who have been arrested include, Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy and Hilary Clinton as well as most of the democratic wing of the House of Representatives. All citizens who are a part of the Democratic party or Green party are being rounded up and sent to re-education centers around the country.

President for Life Bush has also announced that he will not leave office in 2008. "It would be completely irresponsible to leave the Oval Office in the middle of war. I will stay your exulted leader for as long as it takes." The President has also suspended all institutions of secondary education and all men ages 18-28 are involuntarily signing up for the armed forces. "Wherever freedom is threatened you can expect the feared armies of the United States to be there." Chief of Armed Forces Donald Rumsfled boldly stated.

Critics have called Bush's new moves to be unconstitutional and that he is really just eroding freedom to enhance his own power. Senator John McCain a Vietnam war veteran was enraged, "Everything I fought for in that war is being completely destroyed, I can not believe the President is doing this." Shortly after that, Minister of Truth Dick Cheney announced that it had been discovered that Sen. McCain was a part of an Al-Qaeda cell and that he was unfortenately shot when he fought against officers from the Freedom Legion attempting to question him.

All television services have been taken over by the government and now citizens will be able to choose from two channels, BushTV1 and BushTV2. In a televised speech, President for Life Bush encouraged citizens to "Look forward, to the time when the American empire spans the entire world and when we will no longer have to fear the deeds of the evil-doers."
