Can We Call This Impeachment Thursday?
So I made my call thttp://impeachforpeace.org/impeach_bush_blog/?p=1384o President...err...House Speaker Pelosi to register my support for impeachment of BOTH Cheney and Bush (in THAT order, please). If we can impeach a president for a trivial thing as lying about a consentual extra-marital affair no one cared to hear about in the first place, why not impeach these two incompetant and beligerant actors against our constitution and our security.
Here are Kucinich's documents relating to the impeachment of Dick Cheney for high crimes and misdemenors. Vermont senators voted Friday to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
Quotes of the Day:
"The genius of impeachment lay in the fact that it could punish the man without punishing the office."
Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.
"When people ask if the United States can afford to place on trial the president, if the system can stand impeachment, my answer is, "Can we stand anything else?"
"Impeachment is not a remedy for private wrongs; it's a method of removing someone whose continued presence in office would cause grave danger to the nation. "
"The only conduct that merits the drastic remedy of impeachment is that which subverts our system of government or renders the president unfit or unable to govern. "
"[Imeachable conduct is] misconduct by public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust." - Alexander Hamilton
"All in all, the framers would probably agree that it's better to impeach too often than too seldom. If presidents can't be virtuous, they should at least be nervous."
- Joseph Sobran
Ideas for Protesting The Current Administration
There are emails circulating on A Great American Gas-Out, but this hasn't been verified as a real campaign as yet. I think instead we might want to really hurt the oil companies by pledging to Vacation in the Backyard in the Summer of 07. Instead of taking road trips like the Oil Companies are expecting, just stay at home and spend money at your local tourist traps or hold BBQ's where you talk about organizing politically and getting people registered to vote. 40 Summers ago it was the Summer of Love -- maybe this will be the Summer of Change?
