Impeach him. Impeach him now.

I'm not much of a joiner, but I've just joined up here, with the Impeach Bush Coalition.

Why? Well, it was a confluence of events. I'm pretty sick about Democrats and Progressives equivocating about impeaching George Bush - the only President, in the words of James Dean, to admit to an impeachable offense. If you do not wish to be rid of him for the stupidity, say I, bid him farewell for the incompetence.

And there is enough outright fuckuppery, cronyism, incompetence, malfeasances and injustice - not to mention the vote-rigging and the looting of the treasury to outrage even a pretty hard-line Conservative.

But this is nothing new for me. It was seeing the box on "and yes, I DO take it personally" that tipped me over the edge, beside a post that said this:

it's driving me crazy that the full gravity of what is happening in the u.s. is still not sinking in... yeah, there are liberals and progressives working their fingers to the bone to bring about a change next week... yeah, that's a good thing... but a lot of those same people still haven't fully gotten their minds around the fact that we're dealing with pure evil... there is nothing that these people won't do to win, and that includes rigging the election... i will have to ask friends to apply physical restraints if i have to sit there and listen to pundits explain how the bush team "engineered a dramatic come-from-behind win..." the physical restraints will be to prevent serious harm to both myself and those around me...
Both they and I are Nevadans, and we are dealing with the same evils: Jim (the bitch tripped me) Gibbons and John (Cripple Kicker) Ensign.

Our chosen candidates are either to wily in a political sense or personally too nice to say what needs to be said, but there it is. I've been saying it for some time: By their fruits you will know them.

I haven't studied religion, ethics and morality for most of my life to be unsure of my stand here. Anyone who is THIS wrong, for THIS long, with such obviously harmful outcomes is evil - or so close that you pretty much need to chop down their treehouse anyway.

Do-It-Yourself Impeachment, no joke.
The Citizens' movement.

The day the nation demands impeachment is almost upon us. On Jan 3rd, sacks and sacks of mail will be sent to congress demanding impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635).

There's a little known and rarely used clause of the "Jefferson Manual" in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.

That's where we come in. In addition to the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial., part of the movement to impeach the president, has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.


You can initiate the impeachment process yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information in the blanks (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.
