I hope you Dems get it together and try to impeach Bush.
Sun Nov 12, 2006 16:14

I fully agree with foxboy1313, and have held this view for a long, long time now. The American people, and the world, are being duped, and if you don't believe it, you're being duped as well.

I hope you Dems get it together and try to impeach Bush. When I read what Pelosi said about impeachment being "off the table", it just confirmed everything I've believed all these years. And Pelosi is from my district in San Francisco, one of the most left-leaning areas of the entire country! I was born and raised in SF and am a proud radical lefty. There's no way you'd convince me the Dems are serving the interests of the people of the world, or the world/environment itself. They are, for the most part, also in the hands of the elite/rich and serve their interests. Anyone in this country who threatens in a serious way to do otherwise is "neutralized", either by defamation, imprisonment or assassination. Think I'm off the deep end? Read your history!

And foxboy, while I'm not a great fan of the "founding fathers", this is a great Jefferson quote. Thanks!

2. Form Impeachment Committees in all 435 Congressional Districts to lobby every Member of Congress by:
delivering books & videos on impeachment

The best case I could make for City Council to act on Bush's Impeachment
Submitted by dem4christ04 on November 12, 2006 - 2:13pm.Hot Topics | ImpeachForChange

I recently reported on this site regarding my intentions to urge my local government - here in Newark, Ohio - to intervene regarding Bush's illegal actions as Chief Executive/Commander-in-chief/Diplomat-in-chief/etc. After three preceeding speeches before City Council, the following is my final and best case that I could make (as reported on my blogsite):

"I come here tonight with a promise as well as a message; the message being the best case that I can present regarding whether or not Mr. Bush and his administration should face impeachment, removal as well as any and all future punishments for the crimes that they have been accused of; I’ve come to refer to the following presentation as the “Seven Points”.

Outstanding Kickoff for ImpeachForChange!!
Submitted by Bob Fertik on November 12, 2006 - 6:44am.ImpeachForChange

I wish you all could have been in Philadelphia on Saturday for the launch of ImpeachForChange at the National Constitution Center. Our speakers and bloggers were outstanding!!!

We're working on uploading the video. I'll post links from bloggers as I find them. We even had a freeper mole - the poor guy sounds very depressed, as do the rest of his freeper buddies. I think they need big hugs!

Don't squander my vote or my tax dollars on impeachment until the important things are taken care of!!
Submitted by snoweymom on November 10, 2006 - 9:36pm.Impeachment Forum | ImpeachForChange

I'm shocked at this initiative and can't help but wonder whether there's a wolf (neocon) in Democrat's clothing behind this. I can't think of a better way to ensure that the Democrats will have a short-lived Congressional term than to pursue impeachment. Americans do want REAL change. I'm thrilled we Democrats won. However, the "...mobilization called ImpeachForChange..." might better be termed "IMMOBILIZATION for change". An impeachment initiative would literally squander the results of this election. Speaker Pelosi has it right: our newly elected Congress needs to focus on more important initiatives such as developing exit strategies from Iraq; putting an immediate halt to mistreatment of prisoners (including denial of due process and, first and foremost, putting an end to torture); beginning the real work of cleaning up the environment; enacting universal health care; securing social security; supporting Mexico in developing economic initiatives to lift half its population out of poverty and at the same time working out equitable means (e.g.

9/11 Truth investigation would lead to Impeachment
Submitted by larryschoon on November 10, 2006 - 7:10pm.Impeachment - General Discussion | ImpeachForChange

I think that a new and truly independent investigation into the attacks of 9/11 would be the best way to move toward Impeachment. There is more than enough evidence of high level government involvement in the attacks to Indict the entire Bush Administration for High Crimes and Treason. This would be a better way to get rid of them since any possibility of a future Presidential Pardon simply couldn't happen. Another benefit is that we wouldn't appear to be playing partisan politics or just out for revenge and therefore draw from a much larger number of people for support. I would appreciate you

No Unitary Executive
Submitted by richardmathews on November 10, 2006 - 3:48pm.Dick Cheney | George W. Bush | ImpeachForChange | Impeachment

I just sent the following letter to my Congressman. Feel free to re-post it (with attribution) or use it as a basis for your own letter.

Richard M. Mathews

We must act as quickly as possible to start investigations that could lead to the impeachment of George W. Bush.

This is not about revenge. This is not to get Speaker Hastert or Speaker Pelosi elevated to President (in fact, I recommend only impeaching Bush, not Cheney). This is not a coup.

This is about setting a precedent that there is no such thing as a Unitary Executive.

Impeachment FAQ

Q. Shouldn't Congressional Democrats try to work with George Bush in the spirit of bi-partisanship rather than impeach him?

A. Of course they should but Bush never practiced bi-partisanship when Republicans controlled Congress from 2001 to 2006. And one day after he sat with Speaker-elect Pelosi and promised bi-partisanship, he assaulted Democrats with outrageous partisan demands:

* legalize his illegal wiretapping program and gut the law that limits a president's ability to abuse his power in this way
* ratify his recess appointment of John Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations, who is deeply divisive and opposed by nearly every Democratic Senator as well as moderate Republicans
* immediate approval of his administration's deal to sell civilian nuclear technology to India despite that nation's refusal to sign or abide by the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty

Q. Aren't you dividing the Democrats when Nancy Pelosi, John Conyers, and Howard Dean all oppose impeachment?
