I am alarmed at the numerous illegal actions by the Bush/Cheney administration, including the issuing of hundreds of “signing statements”, their warrantless spying, torture and extraordinary rendition of prisoners, suspension of habeas corpus, the compromise of a covert CIA agent, defiance of both the United Nations and the Geneva conventions, - and apparent lying in regards to all of the above, as well as many other serious issues.

With eighteen months remaining in which this rogue administration can do further grave harm to the nation, harm which even a future administration may be unable to right, I believe that action must be taken.

Because these illegal actions constitute an assault on the U.S. Constitution, and because of the administration’s refusal to respect Congress, the separation of powers or the rule of law, I believe that the only recourse is impeachment and removal of the President and Vice President.

I am writing to point out that, when you were sworn into office, you took an oath to defend the United States and its Constitution. I believe that the current, ongoing crisis compels you to act to uphold that oath, and that you are required to use your assigned powers and take all appropriate steps to defend against these threats to our nation and its system of government.

I wish to further specify that these issues, the defense of America, and any means used to halt these assaults, including impeachment, are non partisan, and should not be dictated by political expediency or strategy regarding elections, etc.

I again remind you that your oath makes it your duty to act in this matter, and to do so in the strongest possible way. I recommend that you do so by joining with the 85 cities that have approved resolutions calling for the investigation and impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

Thank you.

I agree with every statement made in the above letter. It is past the time that impeachment of Chenry and Bush takes place.


Please do not discount this momentous act of Dennis Cunnich, the most clear-headed of
of men in Congress. Every day that Cheney is free to make pronouncements about what the Bush Regime can and cannot do is dangerous for not only the United States but also the rest of the world. What is Pelosi thinking when she disregards an act of sanity by Cunnich in a
time of political madness. Do you not hear Cheney whipping the winds of war AGAIN? How
can any one in Congress sit by and let that demon do and say what he wishes. Can you forget the lies about Iraq; the foul name calling he addressed in Congress to the senior Senator Leahy?

The Democrats must not be lulled back into the post 9/11 stupor which brought the USA
to its knees, wasted our international goodwill; drained our financial resources and most of all allowed Bush/Cheney/Rice to talk almost all of you into a war which killed thousands of Americans and even more Iraquis.

Make up for lost time; save what's left our our country, our constitution, our courage to
right the wrong.

S. 1328 (H.R. 2221), The Uniting American Families Act

Dear Senator (Congressman) [insert Member’s last name]

I write to ask you to cosponsor the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA). The UAFA seeks to fulfill the pledge of family unification under current U.S. immigration policy by adding the term “permanent partner” where the word “spouse” currently appears in the Immigration and Nationality Act. This would allow gay and lesbian citizens and permanent residents the ability to sponsor their same-sex partner for immigration benefits without challenging the Defense of Marriage Act.

In addition to helping my partner and I remain together the UAFA would deter fraud and not cost the federal government a penny. The UAFA remains the only hope for me and my partner to be together and I hope that you will cosponsor this bill. Thank you for your time in this important matter and should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
