The Cheney Impeachment Resolution: http://impeachforpeace.org/impeach_bush_blog/?page_id=4468">Cheney found on our website is specifically designed for use at the Minnesota caucuses this coming Tuesday, but can be easily altered to fit your state's system. If you are new to showing up at your precinct caucus or political party house parties, just alter this slightly to work for your location, print out multiple copies and bring it. The rest will be explained to you. Remember that the Peace Corp was initiated by a single resolution introduced by one Minnesota citizen. You can make a difference. Accountability is never too late! This illegal and immoral Executive Branch abuse of Power precedent must not be allowed to stand!

WHEREAS, Recent proclamations and actions have led us to reasonably suspect that Richard B.
