Bring the Troops Home and Iraqi Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2007, H.R. 508
The "Bring the Troops Home and Iraqi Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2007," H.R. 508, was introduced last week by Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D - CA6), Barbara Lee (D - CA9), and Maxine Waters (D - CA35), with the following intent: "To require United States military disengagement from Iraq, to provide United States assistance for reconstruction and reconciliation in Iraq, and for other purposes."

Troop escalation without congressional approval is already an impeachable offense. The Repugs and the Dims have been destroying the Constitution for decades for their increase in government powers. IT'S TIME TO START DOING YOUR JOBS of representing the People and not your self interests. Return our historical background Consitution. Make voting accurate and secure. Impeach Bush/Cheney. Investigate 911. Get rid of the un-Constitutional and illegal Federal Reserve. Get rid of graft and corruption. Stop nuclear proliferation and nuclear plants which are spewing radiation all over the globe. Support Tesla cars. Support individual alternative renewable energy for independence from energy corporations. Support Peace. Stop interfering in other people's governments. Get rid of the CIA involvement in our news media. Return our Free Press from the propaganda Corporate press. START SUPPORTING THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND CONSTITUTION AS YOU HAVE SWORN IN YOUR OATHS OF OFFICE. "Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government." --- James Madison.

This bill - which Peace Action Education Fund was involved in creating - mandates that all U.S. troops and military contractors in Iraq return to the U.S. or redeploy outside of the Middle East within six months of the date of enactment, at which point funding obligated or expended to deploy or continue to deploy U.S. forces in Iraq will be terminated. H.R. 508 would also repeal the 2002 authorization of force resolution approved to go to war with Iraq.
A truly comprehensive piece of legislation to end the war, H.R. 508 would also do the following:
* authorize U.S. support for replacing U.S. troops and contractors with an international stabilization force
* prohibit any permanent U.S. military bases in Iraq
* accelerate U.S. troop and contractor assistance for training of a permanent Iraqi police force
* authorize a wide array of non-military U.S. bilateral and multilateral assistance for reconstruction and reconciliation in Iraq, including a compensation fund for Iraqi noncombatant civilian casualties
* guarantee complete health care for U.S. veterans of military operations in Iraq and other conflicts.
This is very important: even if this bill does not pass, the amount of support we can generate for it will help push the debate, and any legislation Congress does pass, in our direction.

Peace Action Education Fund, along with our members, supporters and colleagues, has lobbied long and hard for many of the provisions in this act, and its introduction represents a shift toward real security based on international cooperation and the defense of human rights - as opposed to the endless war strategy of the Bush Administration. It would build trust with the Iraqi people and others in the Middle East, guarantee that the federal government meets its obligations to the many veterans who have sacrificed so much in this war, provide reparations and reconstruction for the Iraqi people, and offers a formal avenue for members of the House to admit their error in authorizing Bush to use force in the first place.
This is the bill we have been waiting for, and working toward, for a long time. Please take a moment to send your Representative an email and let them know that non-binding resolutions are not enough - demand that the co-sponsor H.R. 508, the "Bring the Troops Home and Iraqi Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2007." http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/Peaceact/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=6579

"Right now, it is easier for us to embrace the status quo, than it is to take a different course - we as a people see these alternative courses of actions as more painful than the status quo - but someday the status quo will be more painful and difficult than the change and then we will embrace the change. People change when they are ready to change - when it is time to change - the same can be said for the masses." "America does not need a Regime Change, America needs a Regime Removal."
