Pass This On

While a lot of towns and cities have passed or tried to pass
pro-impeachment resolutions, only one so far has put the question of
impeachment on the ballot for voters to address in November - Berkeley
CA.
It may not be too late to ask your town or city to place
impeachment on the ballot. Some local governments may be more willing to
do that than they are to pass a resolution themselves. Some media
outlets may also find it more interesting. And it's good for our
democracy:
it's bound to boost turnout at the polls. Here's information on how
you can do it:

nothing but excerpts from the Declaration of Independence (plus a few
words in parentheses). It reads as follows, and should be read at
picnics and protests on the Fourth of July:

Support Suzanne Swift
Suzanne Swift completed a tour of duty in Iraq, where she was sexually
harassed and assaulted. Her efforts to report her treatment were met
with disrespect and dismissed.
When her unit was to be deployed to Iraq a second time, the
21-year-old Specialist Four Military Police Officer, who was being
treated for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, realized she could not
return to Iraq and resume her duties in the same unit with the same
commanding officer who had sexually assaulted her. Swift remained in
Eugene, Ore., for several months. On June 11, 2006, the Eugene Police
Department responded to a request by Ft. Lewis officials to pick Swift
up and take her to jail, where she spent two nights before being
returned to Ft. Lewis. At Ft. Lewis, she was at first confined to her
barracks, with the same sergeant who sexually assaulted her, and is now
confined to the base. The army is investigating her case. Because of the
way Suzanne was treated while serving her country, Swift, her lawyer,
and her family are calling for an Honorable Discharge
with full medical and veterans' benefits.

Thank Congressmen Ron Paul and Walter Jones for Speaking Truth
Watch this video and see two Republican Congress Members, Ron Paul and
Walter Jones, provide a stunningly honest critique of the war, and
demand an end to it. Rep. Jones stresses the importance of the White
House Memo that AfterDowningStreet promoted.

Rep. Walter Jones with Cindy Sheehan
THANK Congressman Jones by Email and phone 202-225-3415.

Thank these men for speaking truth to power. And, just as importantly,
ask them to take the step that matches their words: ask them to
co-sponsor H. Res. 635, which would create a select committee to
investigate the Administration's intent to go to war before
congressional authorization, its manipulation of pre-war intelligence,
encouraging and countenancing torture, and retaliating against critics.

If you are interested in particpating in a delegation to thank Walter
Jones in person and ask him to sign on to H. Res 635, contact David

was referring to articles of impeachment and war crimes charges. Let's
bring those on. Have a productive Bring Em On Day!
