John Hall Says American People Still the One In Spite of John McCain and George Walker Bush Treachery
NY Former Congressman Says McCain and Bush Had No Respect for Private Property or Rule of Law
When John McCain and George W. Bush disregarded intellectual property laws just as William Walker had disregarded the sovereignty of Central American nations, a pattern of 'the hell with you, what's yours is mine' became so obvious that it could not be disputed," said John Hall. John Hall was the New York Congressman and a founder of the group Orleans. Their song Still The One is an American Rock and Roll classic and both Republicans, McCain and Bush, took Hall's song for their own campaign's music without bothering to ask 'whose is this?'" said Hall.
"Their thievery goes to the heart of all that is wrong with America," said Hall. "Our ancestors came to these shores to create a new life where freedom, honor, justice and liberty were to be respected. These guys are nothing but filibusterers like William Walker whose treachery was confronted in California and then in Central America. They take what is not theirs and smile at you while they spit in your eye. It's high time we put them where they belong. Behind bars. Why? Because as far as the American people are concerned we're Still the One!" said Hall
When asked if John Hall would support an effort by the group Central Americans for the Exhumation and DNA Analysis of William Walker's Remains which is pushing for removal of William Walker's body from the Cementerir Viejo in Trujillo, Honduras so that his DNA can be compared with that of the George W. Bush, John Hall said, "what a great idea!"
