Can We Fire These Clowns?
By George Washington
I say we immediately take action to remove from office all congress people who are impeding the will of the American people.
Is there a mechanism for removing/impeaching/recalling/firing federal senators or house members who are derelict in their duty, or who are incompetent, or who are not loyal to the interests of the American people? Just for example, congress members who won't allow impeachment to go forward or won't investigate 9/11?
Can any lawyer with expertise in constitutitional law shed some light on this question?
If the answer is "yes", then I say we immediately take action to remove from office all congress people who are impeding the will of the American people.
As a political activist for decades, I have rejoiced in victories for the people and mourned in defeats. I chose the pen name "George Washington" because - as Washington's biographies show - he wasn't a very good strategist, but he was incredibly persistent. He hung in again and again during the worst setbacks and bleakest winters for years. That is what made him great: he simply refused to quit. George Washington therefore inspires me to be a life-long activist.
As an attorney and former law school professor, I am a firm believer that no one - even the high and mighty - are above the law.
As someone trained in environmental systems analysis, I am always looking at how different trends influence each other ... and the big picture.
