In case you wake up Monday morning staring out the window wondering what you can do today to make a difference in the world...

Call your Representative and both Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them: "I insist that Congress act immediately to bring all U.S. troops home from Iraq NOW!" It almost certainly will have no effect, but go ahead and do it. It'll make you feel better. Hundreds of thousands of your very best intentioned fellow citizens are calling their Representatives and Senators today insisting that the United States end its Iraq aggression immediately and good for them for doing so. In case the number above doesn't work out, here is a resource site to locate your Representative and Senators to place a call immediately along with other Action Steps you can take: http://pdamerica.org/articles/news/2006-11-29-08-47-58-news.php The vote of November 7th was a mandate primarily against governmental corruption, but opposition to the Bush Administration's illegal war of aggression for profit in Iraq was a close second. It is almost as if they are closely intertwined - governmental corruption and war for profit... Who'd a thunk? Here is just a smattering of organizations participating in this noble effort: http://www.votersforpeace.us/call-in-day.html http://www.wnpj.org/node/5412 http://www.insteadofwar.org/site/more.php?id=1607_0_1_0_M http://www.codepink4peace.org/ http://democracyrising.us/content/view/651/165/ http://www.envirosagainstwar.org/know/read.php?itemid=4952 http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?id=3459 http://sacramentofordemocracy.org/?q=node/view/4777 http://www.mandateforpeace.org/article.php?id=1299 http://wilderside.wordpress.com/2006/12/01/call-in-to-bring-the-troops-home-12406/ http://www.impeachforpeace.org/ http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/ By all means, please call. It is the right thing to do. But while you're at it, go ahead and call for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney because your call will be totally in vain as long as they are in power. Period. Ten thousand, a hundred thousand, a million, six point five billion calls won't matter one iota. These soul-less corporate cretins have no intention of letting go of this boondoggle. It is far too profitable for the crony corporations to which they bend a knee. They already know that they are unpopular and that their policies are not supported by the American people. They don't give a Shiite, a Sunni or a Kurd what you think or want. They don't work for you. So by all means make your call, but please consider saying instead: "I insist that Congress act immediately to bring all U.S. troops home from Iraq NOW!, AND I demand full accountability of the President, the Vice President and their entire Administration for the lies that got us into this mess in the first place. I insist that impeachment be BACK ON THE TABLE immediately. You work for us. We brought you into this office and we can damn well take you out! Do your job and serve the Constitution of the United States of America to which you will swear your oath of office in January or stop pretending you are a free standing multi-celled vertebrate". Calling for peace without justice is like operating your car without a drive train. The engine revs and the fuel is burned, but the car goes nowhere. Be very careful how you expend your precious energy. There will never be peace without justice.
