Oh, They ALL Do That… Bullshit!

I want to address all those citizens and pundits and reich-wing defenders who throw their hands up in the air and simply say, “Oh, they ALL do it,” when we citizens with common sense and a desire for justice demand impeachment.

While it may be true that many politicians and corporate executives are on the take and are involved in various underhanded dealings to “get things done,” I want to remind everyone that that is no excuse to let them off the hook for their misdeeds.

If a man who lives below the poverty level robs and assaults YOU, dear reader, would you accept the excuse that “Oh, ALL men who live below the poverty level commit petty crimes such as that?” Never mind that that is a sweeping generalization (because not ALL politicians are breaking the law either remember,) but even if that were true, what bearing does that have on your desire for justice in this case?

Just as you would want to see your assailant/robber caught by the police and sentenced to jail for his crimes, so too should you want to see politicians sent to jail for their crimes.

What? Impeaching a President is so very traumatic for the country, expensive and detrimental to the reputation of the office? We should avoid that at all costs, you say?

Fuck that! Crimes were committed. Justice should be sought.

Impeachment exists as a valid recourse in the event of such actions that would result in the punitive measure committed by those that hold office. In other words, we CAN impeach politicians because we are SUPPOSED to impeach them when they deserve it.

I can only hope that since the Dems have stated in no uncertain terms that “impeachment is off the table,” one or more of their investigations into alleged misdeeds by this Bush/Cheney crime syndicate leads to their inevitable impeachment. For since the Dems have stated that investigations are forthcoming… the results of these investigations are our only hope of seeing justice brought to bear on the current corrupt administration’s criminal behavior.

    Yes, we cannot and should not live in a society where it’s considered ‘normal’ for the highest elected official in the land to be a criminal psychopath.

    Nor is it acceptable for people to say ‘It’s too much trouble’ for such a person to be brought before the bar of Justice.

    And as for ‘get over it…’ I look forward to using that on the next ReichWinger who whines about how rude and nasty the Democrats are.

    We’ve got the ReThugs in the surf. Let’s push them under.

    Well, our chance to convince Nancy Pelosi to Impeach Bush/Cheney is this Monday Jan. 15th..

    Pelosi most likely said impeachment was “off the table” to remove any appearance of conflict-of-interest that would arise if she were thrust into the presidency as a result of the coming impeachment.

    What we need to do is to pressure Pelosi not to interfere with impeachment maneuverings within her party. Sending her Do-It-Yourself impeachments legitimizes her when she is forced to join the impeachment movement in the future.

    Sacks and sacks of mail are about to arrive in Nancy Pelosi’s office initiating impeachment via the House of Representative’s own rules this Monday January 15th. 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 a House Resolution (635), or 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. ImpeachforPeace.org 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 and simultaneously help to convince Pelosi to follow through with the process. Do-It-Yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.
