Participate in the National Poll on impeaching vice president Cheney.

VOTING ACTION PAGE: http://www.usalone.com/cheney_impeachment.php

With his usual visionary courage, in introducing H.Res. 333 Dennis Kucinich is saying what we all know, but which most of the rest of our behind the curve politicians are still too afraid to say. The Bush administration, and Richard B. Cheney in particular, has committed high crimes against the people and interests of the United States of unprecedented magnitude. We have created a VOTING action page on this issue which already has over 15,000 submissions just since yesterday.

At the same time you are casting your vote on the action link above, you are ALSO sending a real time message to all your members of Congress expressing your position, together with any personal comments you wish to add, and you can send a letter to the editor of your nearest daily local newspaper, all with one click. We're not afraid of democracy. You can vote yes. You can vote no. We say bring it on. But let ALL those who care about what's happened in this country speak out so that we reflect the true voice of the people on this historic issue.

WHAT WE NEED ARE A MILLION SUBMISSIONS

With a million submissions (15,000 already sent) we can force the hand of Congress to take a stand, to do their Constitutional duty, and to demand accountability from an administration that has brought nothing but death, destruction and financial ruin to our country. It's not as if those voices are not out there, to speak against a president of vice with a 9% approval rating. But it's up to us to reach out to and mobilize the remaining 91% who are not hiding from the truth, and let them know there is a way to effectively make their voices heard.


Who are we going to listen to? Will we listen to the snarky columnist for the Washington Post, who thought she was being just so clever ridiculing those of us who are outraged at the inaction of our Congress to constrain the endless power grabs by the White House. Or will we listen to our hearts telling us that we were deliberately lied into a disastrous, unnecessary, counterproductive and immoral war, the first article of impeachment proposed by Mr. Kucinich?

Will we cower under our beds fearful that only arrogant dictatorship can protect us from some unknown threat of the future? Or will we throw off the intimidation of those who have manipulated the insecurity that they themselves created, when they fabricated operational ties between Iraq and the lone wolf terrorists of 9/11, the second article of impeachment proposed by Mr. Kucinich.

And will we now blunder into an even greater catastrophe by launching another preemptive attack on a country that we could live with in peace with if justice and diplomacy were to prevail. Or will we immediately remove from power the primary architect of both past and future debacles, whose very threats accelerate the drive towards the unthinkable, the third article of impeachment proposed by Mr. Kucinich.

The country is hungry for leadership, for honesty, and for resolution. But most of all the country is hungry for accountability. Elections DO have consequences. Because now at least there are enough votes in Congress to call for that accountability, if only we will speak out in sufficient numbers to demand it. Constitutional crimes MUST have consequences. That is what the Constitution demands if we will honor it. Will we listen to those who have tried to take ultimate accountability off the table, or will THEY listen to us?

One wag observed recently that if Dick Cheney were impeached, that would make George Bush president. Who was it who abused his mandate to vet Bush's vice presidential candidates in 2000 to appoint himself? Who was it whose office personally orchestrated the lies passed off to us as intelligence on Iraq? Who was it who masterminded the outing of one of our best assets in preventing the proliferation of the REAL weapons of mass destruction, and all to keep the high crimes they had already committed from being exposed? Who has been the real acting president of the United States all these years?

Yes, let George Bush just TRY to be president without Cheney constantly propping him up with grim warnings about what would happen without him. He won't last long either, and then we the people will finally be free of their incompetent tyranny.
