Ref: Open Letter to Congress: A Call for Impeachment

On Monday, June 9th 2008, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) made history on the floor of the House by reading 35 Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush. I highly respect his courage and integrity which has exceeded what most members of Congress have shown lately.

If you truly believe in your oath of office, that you are the protectors of the Constitution and of your country you cannot allow lawlessness to continue in the executive branch.

The ball is in your court, Congress. Are you going to play or sit on the bench?

Supreme Court says habeas cannot be suspended. Bush says, "I don't agree with them"

Further proof of how dangerous Bush is to American law and values. He continues to thumb his nose at anything the Constitution says if it does not meet with his personal approval.

Perhaps Congress needs some education into why it was given the power to impeach in the first place. No, it was not to politically punish a President because he messed around behind his wife's back and got caught. That was a blatant miss-use of impeachment for political purposes because nothing that president did put our country or it's Constitution in harms way as Bush has done almost from day one.

Now you are faced with a president who clearly has no respect for the word of law or our Constitution. He has expressed his contempt of Congress and the people of America by lying and cheating his way into war and more. Hon. Mr. Kucinich provided 35 sound reasons to impeach. I bet if Congress is able to obtain testimony from Rove, more will be added. ( assuming Congress has the guts to have him arrested to appear )

Congress cannot let his crimes go unpunished because to do so sends a clear message to future presidents that they can pretty much do what they will because no one has the guts or integrity to stand up to them. America counts on these checks and balances to keep us free. If Congress fails to hold a rogue president accountable, it has lost its credibility and needs to be voted out of office.

No one but Congress can hold Bush and Cheney accountable. If you refuse to do so it is the same as condoning everything he has done and makes Congress equally culpable for the disasters he is bringing to American.

He can't be allowed to leave, knowing he bested Congress in a war of wits. What would that really say about the intellect of Congress !?

I invite you to view this poll online where 98% say impeach them both. True it is a small sample so far but I would bet the bank this is the results you would obtain in any similar poll.

Will you stand up to him or will you continue to bury your collective heads in the sand? Are you going to continue to protect Bush or will you protect the American people and our Constitution?
