August 9th marks thirty two years since Richard M. Nixon, confronted with the threat of impeachment, officially resigned as President of the United States. It's time to post plans to organize committees, rallies, vigils, etc. in commemoration of this event for Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. We need to show that the success of that impeachment proceeding conducted thirty-two years ago can be repeated again in 2007.

Seldom and with a dark pallor are good citizens forced to reflect on the poor choice of the electorate and realize that a grave mistake was made. That the voting majority, as it were, voted wrong. That people around the world and at home have lost family, friends and livelihoods. That we are battling more than just one man's vendetta against a largely invisible army of globally disfranchised people. That there exists an insatiable war machine, much fueled by an industrial military complex that Americans were warned against by Eisenhower. This madness must stop. Human rights must be restored.

In anticipation of the House being taken back by the Democrats in the Fall, grass root planning must begin to push for impeachment proceedings now. Impeachment is the last recourse of a democratic and civil society to make right an onerous wrong.

As blood runs unabated in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, Asia and now Lebanon fueled by religious zealots and greed-driven military industrialists, small organizing committees will be forming across the country to tap resources from the many political factions opposed to this administration. The common cause: impeachment of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

If for one day only in world-wide events we pull away from our own strategic causes, be them left, right, center, or progressive, and resolve to depose of this social pathogen for the good of the U.S. and indeed the world, it will speak volumes of our resolve to see that George W. Bush's last act of his tyrannical presidency will be his resignation.

Make this August 9th 2006 a memorable date. Know that impeachment is not a moot point. That there is evidence and intent. And that the first order of business of the new Congress must be to impeach George W. Bush before more lives are lost and irreparable harm to the world goes beyond the point of repair.
