I'll list some of the common objections, then, I hope you'll add comments listing some more, with your reply, countering them. And also, please add your comments adding to the counter-arguments I provide, which for the sake of time, I will keep short.
1- That will give us Cheney as president.
Well, of course, we have to impeach Cheney first, but we can and should be INVESTIGATING both.
2-Not enough time. Cheney and Bush will be out of office in 14 months. Why bother?
Lots of reasons. They committed crimes. Investigations will turn up more ugly dirt. Investigations will turn up new, fresh witnesses who will roll over and testify against Cheney and Bush.
3- Impeachment will not succeed in the senate.
Investigations can last until November, if necessary, and they will hurt the right wingers still supporting Bush and Cheney. Gradually, more will see the light, like Hagel.
4- The Dems will be accused of wasting time.
So what. They're already being accused of that. It's a lame, weak, unacceptable argument.
5- There's no clear proof
That's what hearings are for.
Okay, hopefully, I've primed the pump. This is the kind of thing that can be put in a pamphlet, once it's done and handed out all over. What are you waiting for? Add your comment.
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
