On the basis of this crime alone, Bush and his inner circle should be impeached by the House of Representatives and tried in the Senate. Bush and the rest of his gang who were aware of the lies used to get the US into this war must be impeached, unless you dont consider what they did treason. Greens do.
Even if you can see your way through to call Bush and Companys lies leading up to war in Iraq acceptable, how can you excuse the Presidents lying about the leak of Valerie Plames status as a CIA agent? First he apparently allowed Cheney to leak Plames name, and then lied to all of us, doing his song-and-dance of I will fire anyone who was involved to I will fire anyone who broke the law to I forget...what were we talking about again?
Is Bushs impeachment assured? We Greens dont believe the question is one of likely success, but of what the Constitution demands. When the President and his cohorts break the most fundamental laws of our nation, the very Constitution itself, questions of success or failure are irrelevant. Either we stand for and by the Constitution or we give up on the idea that the people count for anything at all. Bushs unconstitutional wiretapping is but one demonstration of the disdain he has for our basic system.
In calling for Bushs impeachment, the Green Party also called on the American people to protest the medias unwillingness to ask the hard questions and the quite agreement of both Democrats and Republicans to let George Bush get away with the crimes he has committed and has authorized others to commit.
In words that ring like a true patriots bell to me, the national party said in a press release in 2005 that Bush administration policies have brought disgrace to the United States. Now, with more than 2400 dead and many more wounded, we remember Bushs arrogant swagger and from-the-hip diplomatic style that brought us Mission Accomplished and Bring it on to the terrorists in Iraq, who promptly brought it on.
With an agenda like this, Greens obviously need more shoulders at the wheel. If you think that the nation would be better off with new leaders, drop by the website and let us know.
If you want the United States to stand against torture instead of dancing around the issue, visit us and think about joining. If you believe that deceivers should not lead the country, even if they are The Decider, we sure would love to hear from you.
