When will this administration begin to understand that just because we are not at there "class" level doesn't mean we can't out think them.All you have to see is our commander and chief with that smug smirk on his face to know that he thinks he is above 90% of the people around him. How much BS will it take before he is brought up to stand before us and is impeached for lying and invading Iraq for oil. As far as I'm concerned it can't be soon enough!

Please,for so many reasons, CALL DC!

http://www.votetoimpeach.org/ does not work it won't accept my vote.

YOu cannot prepare for and prevent war simultaniously

What is wrong with the democrat leaders, they won't lead this efert? It appears they have forgotten who they are supposed to take care of.

IMPEACH BUSH AND CHENEY NOW. TODAY. THEY HAVE DONE ENOUGH TO BANKRUPT OUR COUNTRY. GET THEM OUT NOW.

ENUF IS ENUF !!!

I called Pelosi's office today, and asked that she join the progressive caucus, and sign on to end the war in Iraq. She really is doing a terrible job, as minority leader. Where has she been for the past 5 years....you'd think she would be embarrassed by her record! I am very worried, even though the House could gain some seats, the Dems have done as bad a job as the Republicans.( not this caucus, of course) I wish that each State would put an initiative on the 2006 ballot, demanding that we end the war in Iraq, as well as telling BushCo, that we do not have confidence in him to bring this about. We don't need Republicans to get enough signitures. If enough States sign on, it would be a clear message to both the Dems and Reps, as well as to any future Presidential candidates.

It's so frustrating to me that we have to depend on Congress to do this thing. I don't want to wait anymore. Can't we just do it ourselves? We have the numbers. We're in the majority. He'd be out by now if it was up to us. Good idea on the Iraq initiative. We just have to take matters into our hands now.

I agree 100%. But how? There are MILLIONS of us, but we aren't being heard. The media could change things tomorrow if they wanted-- but they won't. If 500,000 people can demonstrate in front of the White House and barely get mentioned in the press, it's pretty hopeless. Not that I'm giving up. I just wish we had some forceful leaders. Where did the energy of Howard Dean go? Every one of last year's Presidential Hopefuls should be yelling in the House and Senate. We need to have one voice and a clear message-- all the progressives need to be on the same page. Too many feel they have to push their own particular agenda while we need the strength of everyone combined to fight the neo-con monster.

None of our Reps in arkansas signed on either, even though
they were asked. So, you know who we won't vote for again.
We voted out one because he didn't respect our views on not
wanting china in the trade agreements.
And it can be done again.
We want Bush,Chaney, Rumsfeld, and condi out with a purple passion,
or more soo Red fiery one.
So, anyway we can do it, were all for it.

If you over write it doesn't make the fact that one religion made the decision to pre-emptive strike the American public. In 1984, this same religion in protest to seeking world approval before producing product tried to force Iraq to build the car bomb. Iraq told them no, no matter how impoverished the country they were not going to build a nuclear device for daily use. The LDS promptly came back to Utah and "did it better" themselves. The first pre-emptive nuclear strike by one religion ever seen.

What's left of them are trying so hard to learn how to be republicans.

I'm voting GREEN from here on out -- the Democrats are a joke! I'm from Indiana; Evan Bayh votes more republican than some republicans!

I know how you feel, and I've been grappling with this very issue. But the conclusion I've come to is that we'll either have a Republican or a Democrat in the White House. We're still better off with a Democrat. Our work is to replace our "Demicans." We need to find and support progressive individuals to run for office, all the way from local elections on up. The neocons want us to become frustrated and give up. That's how they'll win. Don't give them what they want. If we stick together and fight harder than we've ever fought before, we can win.

Is this about us and them, or is that a program which keeps us divided and conquered by the more insidious powers that seem to have our government at their bid and call?

The Green Party does seem to see right through the Electoral sports event, which has kept us focused on the two-team battle rather than accountability for running the counrty. Green addresses the real issues on a path of sustainability, conservation, reform, and progress.

The third party intervention worked well in Germany, cleaning up the political muddle and enforcing the better interests of the people and our environment. When Americans are ready to dissolve the charade and take responsibility for managimg their nation, I believe that this may be the simplest path, short of a new Constitutional Cnvention.

I am very proud of my Representative, Lynn Woolsey. Many Democrats have failed to commit themselves but she is doing a great job. Let's make sure we tell the good ones how much we appreciate them. A little positive reinforcement can help.

www.impeachbush.tv

and ask the others to represent the ~67% of us who do not agree with our occupation of Iraq! If Rove can "Swift Boat" Kerry, we could "Tea Party" the candidates in 2006 who make wishy-washy statements about Bush's foreign policy. Throw 'em overboard.

When will Congress wake up and vote to Impeach President Bush and his whole administration?
Earl J Prignitz

We'll never impeach Bush so long as the Repubs control the House, and not convict while they control the Senate.

We have GOT to get back control of Congress before we talk seriously about impeachment. Now, I'm all for talking about it among ourselves, signing petitions and so forth. But there are quite a few Congressional Dems are working behind the scenes to prepare for the opportunity. It's of utmost importance that we give it to them, by giving them a majority in Nov 2006. That's where can make the most difference.

If the subject of impeaching President Bush doesn't get on the front page of America's Newspapers soon, they "the powers that be" will make a law or laws that will make it impossible to do so. Now is the time to make this happen-not later! The sooner he and his PNAC CABAL are out of the picture, the sooner our troops can come home where they belong! Let's do this America, while we still have the freedom to speak up and make this happen.

My feeling is if any leader, president, or otherwise purposely fabricates the truth they should be held accountable for there actions because no one is above the law. Social status should not give them the right to decide this great country's response to terror issues. We all what it stopped, but lying about the reasons to invade a country. Should not be tolerated it only undermines the trust that we should have in our political leaders for which we elect to be the voice of the people and for the people not themselves. If President Bush did fabricate reasons for going in to invade Iraq he and his cabinet should be held accountable. I personally do not trust a man who lies and then hides behind his self proclaimed christianity.

Pre-9/11 criminal neglect, lying to Congress and the American people in order to launch an illegal pre-emptive war, condoning the use of torture, criminal neglect before, during and after the Katrina disaster--there is no question but that the "legal" basis for impeachment already exists. But impeachment is more than a legal act. It is a political act requiring articles of impeachment to be passed by the House and a trial in the Senate. Given the Leninist-like solidarity of the Republican right wing, impeachment cannot be accomplished absent a removal of the Republican majority in Congress. Impeachment must become a core issue of the 2006 Congressional elections.

At the time of the castastrophies occurance, it was termed, by the current President of the time. The first pre-emptive nuclear strike of the American Public by one religion. This was grounds enough to list as a domestic terrorist. Instead, the President chose to list as a domestic terrorist Utah's welfare system, the same state that launched the nuclear strike. It is a civil service failure when all the systems developed to prevent this failed it detect before it occurred, and failed to stop once it had been verified illegal product. There was not a military or civil system that ever looked among ourselves for a pre-emptive strike scenerio. Nuclear testing had been stopped, the booster was identified as the next largest to stop as it is deployed for use on a regular basis without a declaration of war. Then the LDS decided to put into use, on a daily basis, in everyone's front seat, largest quantities in use became the target. If you don't ever put into use is it a crime???? Stop the daily use on this side of the ocean and don't ship off the Continent.

Impeachment has to be initiated in the judiciary committee of the house of representatives. The Chairman is a republican because republicans hold the majority in the house. In order to impeach Bush we must win a majority in the house in the 2006 elections. Work for that.

What a delicious idea. My favorite would be for exceding the real power of the office by starting a war. Let's see if wecan build a case for Crimes against humanity by being born or stupidity in office.

Implicit in "we" is only current opposition to the Republicans in Congress, the Democratic Party. This national socialist party is an enemy to our founding principles, the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments, as demonstrated at WACO.

You burned twenty children alive at WACO. Now you will burn in Hell FOREVER.

A Betrayed Democrat

We all watched in horror as Bush showed you what he would do about a cult. Meanwhile, the LDS listed as the largest cult on the planet, is still blowing everyone up in the front seat with a failed nuclear device since 1985????? How about we disarm both the cult and Bush, pass a no war/no nuke amendment.

Support our troops; bring them home NOW! We need no "exit strategy"; we only need to bring them home before one more American soldier is killed or maimed, before one more Iraqi is killed or maimed. Bring our troops home NOW.

Since the first war in Iraq was determined to be an intelligence failure with no justifications for deployment armed, why is going back with no justificaitons going to fix the unjust armed deployment the first time. Like father, like son????? The first President Bush chose not to run for a second term rather than reveal the findings of the first intelligence failure investigations. He also would have rather believed it was an election failure. I feel the election failures are a result of not being able to generate the constitutional no war amendment, further misinformation is sure to follow unless we close armed deployment as an option for all time.

Bush, Cheney and their entire staff should be held responsible. They must be forced to tell the truth and to face a strict inquiry.

Spend the militaries expeditures in America, not in Iraq. The money being spent can't be expaianed to the penny and that's the second action needed, balance our budget! Bring to justice the fraud in our government!

I agree, but removal of the troops is paramount, first, as It has been substantiated there were no justifications for deployment. Stop the devistation over more misinformation. Then, impeach Bush on war crimes to bring to the conclusion, what all of us have been a majority on since the end of the Vietnam War, a no war constitutional amendment. This country has had a 3/4 majority in favor of a no war ammendment for far too long. I like unilateral disarmament too.....the no nuke amendment next??????
