Judiciary Committee contact info, 3 mainstream polls, petition for impeachment

Dear friends:

There's some absolutely good news about the impeachment prospects.

The Aide at my US Representative's office said that (despite the media black-out) they are getting "lots" of calls about Kucinich's 35 articles of impeachment. What's more is that "100% of the calls are for impeachment".

Keep in mind that I live in a very liberal area of the country. However,  the mainstream polls below would indicate that impeachment sentiment is on the rise. MSNBC's poll, only twelve hours after Kucinich filed the articles of impeachment, soared at 89% in favor. AOL's poll as of yesterday was 80% of constituents saying "YES". USA Today's poll was 57% in favor (if I remember correctly) as of yesterday. Check them out for today's most current ratings, and better yet, weigh in! The more, the better. This is centrally important!

Wars based on lies are at issue here. Life and death hangs in the balance. Free speech is under attack in post-911 legislation: Just check out the facts on the ACLU and Center for Constitutional Rights's websites for proof! No foolin' around: Let's all do our part!

Kucinich has promised to introduce yet another "privileged resolution" of impeachment if this one is turned down. Public sentiment for impeachment is currently fueled by the torture and Valerie Plame cases being on the air. As the public finds out more based on Kucinich's 35 articles of impeachment, that sentiment is only going to climb in favor of removing Bush and Cheney from office. Write your editor a letter and help get the facts out there, and that public sentiment will only climb even further. It will skyrocket!

And as public sentiment skyrockets, my friends I disagree with anyone who says that politicians just don't care: Nonsense. Has anyone else here also seen when signatures from come in by the millions, how politicians reverse their positions, 180 degrees? Surely I am not the only one to have seen that, by a long shot! Politicians want to maintain their seat in public office.   It's only if the media blacks out the rave, then they can get away with the obvious. But even then, the power of the Internet is so powerful, and we have a role to play. A centrally important one. In order to prevent Congress from playing any games, we ourselves must take responsibility for doing our part. Email chains, post to blogs, ahoy! Here we come! Look out, world!

If we don't impeach now, then future presidents will "get the message" that they, too, can literally get away with murder. Israeli radio has recently announced Bush's plans to attack Iran within the next few months: A move that could get China involved and finally invoke WW III. Nothing could profit Haliburton more, of course, so that is exactly what Bush and Cheney want.

We've simply got to stop this nonsense! No foolin' around. May I urge each of you to take off a day from work if you have to---call in sick. Treat this as if life and death are at stake, because....they are! 

Please  pass word around. Contact the Judiciary Committee, in its entirety: Contact info below for the COmmittee as a whole, and for each individual member thereof, was posted as a result of the very motivated work of Meryl Ann Butler: Wow, Meryl, what a lot of time you spent! Thank you! I have copied and pasted it, below.

The MSNBC, AOL, and USA Today polls are below: Please take a moment and vote.'s petition for impeachment in support of Kucinich's 35 articles of impeachment is also below: Please sign it.

Then call your US Representative to indicate support for impeachment. The more signatures/statistics they can wave on the House floor, the greater the chances of winning the cause.

Any House member who opposes impeachment, please remind them, in writing and by phone call, that they too are vulnerable to global warming and casualty by WW III. No bodyguard or money or power can protect them from either one. Please remind them that we PAY them to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution, and that the well-being of the entire world is at stake. If they don' t care, we will ALL work with the stroke of our pens to expose their voting records and oust them from public office.

Remember: This is NOT about whether or not THEY support impeachment, which is to imply unilateral powers. Just what they' d love. Their job, instead, is to implement OUR will, as a greater public. Period. Insist on it, and don't ask what THEY want! That's exactly the backward road to go in a Democracy. Thanks!

Finally, please pass this article around. Copy and paste the contents thereof and sign your own name to it: I care not one iota, I repeat: Not one---about my name being attached. I do care plenty that this mission work. Please let's all help and do our part! Then we will have time for complaining thereafter. Repeat: Life and death hang in the balance. Please take the time to do this, and then pass this on by email. Thank you so much for your time and motivation!
