IMPEACH BUSH-CHENEY

Q- What can ordinary people do? Isn't it up to the House to impeach?

A- Under the US Constitution, ultimate authority is vested in WE THE PEOPLE. The members of the House are our Representatives, and they are supposed to represent the will of the people. Polls show that the majority of voters want Bush and Cheney impeached if they lied us into war in Iraq, and/or wiretapped illegally. There is plenty of evidence to warrant investigation into impeachment by the House.

Q- Since Congress is Republican, how can we expect them to impeach?

A- All 435 seats in the House are up for election this November. It's the job of WE THE PEOPLE to make sure that an impeaching candidate is running in every district, and gets elected, so that we will have an impeaching Congress coming in.

Q- If Bush is impeached, wouldn't Cheney become president? He'd be worse.

A- John Conyers' HR 635, 636, 637 call for censure of Bush and Cheney both, and investigation into impeachable offenses of both men. Cheney will not survive an impeachment inquiry.

Q- Who is next in line? Wouldn't it be Hastert, Republican Speaker of the House?

A- Yes, right now, but if we elect an impeaching Congress, then the new Speaker will probably be a progressive Democrat. The most senior Democrat is John Conyers.

Q- With Bush controlling the media, isn't impeachment an impossible dream?

A- Through word of mouth and the internet, the impeachment movement is growing rapidly. News of it is now breaking into the mainstream media. We have 7 more months to build it. How can we fail, with more news of impeachable offenses coming out almost daily?

Q- What good will getting rid of Bush and Cheney do? The whole system is corrupt.

A- If we can put a progressive, impeaching Congress in place, we will have cleaned out much of the corruption. We will have a Congress beholden to the people rather than to the corporations. The new Congress, after changing the Executive Branch, can undo much of the harm that the Bush administration has inflicted on the world, and can start to deal with real problems, like global warming.

Q- You are starting to make sense. Is there a way of doing this?

A- As we get more organized, we are identifying the candidates in every district, and will support and publicize impeachers through the internet, word of mouth, radio call ins, etc, until the mainstream media has to take notice. Impeaching candidates for Congress may be progressive Democrats, Greens, even an occasional Republican. Where there is no impeacher running, we will run and support a write-in candidate, who will bring impeachment into the debate.

Q- What can I do to help?
