The impeachment is coming, get ready
In its new book, Articles of Impeachment Against George W. Bush, the Center for Constitutional Rights makes it clear that by illegally spying on U.S. citizens, lying to the American people about the Iraq war, seizing undue executive power, and sending people to be tortured overseas, Bush is unfit to lead this country.
GW Bush's crimes make Watergate look like an afternoon in the sun playing on the slip-n-slide. A despot like Bush needs to be removed from power quickly before more damage is done. Congress must stand up to this tyrant now, the hearings should begin immediately. No more debate! Prosecute!
"Vic semper tyrannis," screamed John Wilkes Booth as he jumped down to the stage at the Ford Theatre after putting a slug in the back of Lincoln's head. "Thus unto tyrants."
Mr. Bush, we will refrain from blowing open your skull (but you should probably watch your back if Cheney is in the room). Instead, we will kick your ass to the curb as an example to the next generation of leaders who threaten our constitutionally protected freedoms.
The best article I've read on the reasons for impeachment was in The Nation by Elizabeth Holtzman. You'll definitely want to read that one.
There's a lot of information on the Impeach Bush Coalition blog.
"Bush will go down as the worst president in our nation's history. In a ferocious attack, his adminstration has launched over 300 major rollbacks of US environmental laws, rollbacks that are weakening the protection of our country's air, water, public lands, and wildlife." - Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
