We know that activism works. In just the last 24 hours Debra Bowen decertified every DRE (hackable electronic voting machine) in CA, and she did this courageous thing at least in part because of the tens of thousands of messages she was getting from her constituents in the state. We know. We were involved in helping to mobilize those voices. IMPEACHMENT ACTION PAGE: http://apps.facebook.com/fb_voices/ So too with impeachment. The only hurdle between the consensus of the people and restoring Constitutional integrity is our own dedication in speaking out and encouraging everyone else we can to do the same. And as we look for opportunities to reach out to our fellow citizens with calls to action, we cannot help but notice that the fastest growing networked community on the internet is the Facebook web site. In large part this is because they have opened up their platform to member created applications, which in practical use makes their entire base of about 30 million participants accessible to the activism of each other. The directly link above will take you to the new VOICES application created by us on the Facebook Platform, which enables any Facebook member to create their own action pages without limit on any issue of their own they care about. They can be either advocacy pages which take one side of an issue, or voting pages which act as a referendum. Either way these action pages send your messages in real time to all your members of Congress at once, plus a letter to the editor of your nearest daily local newspaper if you like, all with one click. Of course the number one hottest political issue in the country right now is whether Congress should commence impeachment hearings immediately, and against Vice President Cheney in particular, though Alberto Gonzales, Bush and others are also deserving of judgement. In the case of Cheney the votes in the National Cheney Impeachment Poll are coming up fast on 100,000, with 99.17 of those being Yes votes to impeach. And that is why we have chosen this question as the first action page to feature in the new VOICES interface. IMPEACHMENT ACTION PAGE: http://apps.facebook.com/fb_voices/ If you are already a member of Facebook we ask you to visit this page, vote on it, and then share it with everyone else in your personal network. There are applications in the Facebook community with millions of users. That's what it will take to make impeachment happen. Literally millions of people must contact their members of Congress and pressure them to stand up against the Cheney White House. These are feasible numbers. Among the various activist groups we have hundreds of thousands already. Facebook alone could turn the tide. Even if you are not a member of Facebook already please take a look at the action page creation function in the new Voices application. We are throwing the door wide open to democracy here. You can take any stand you like on any issue out there, or throw it out for a fair Yes/No vote. We believe that if the voice of the people were in fact expressed it would be naturally progressive. We are not afraid of democracy. We seek to encourage. Each of us has but one voice. But to bring about true policy change we must join our voices together. Which is why we called the new application . . . VOICES.
