America! If You Will Not Impeach This Tyrant, Who Will You Impeach?

By Sherwood Ross

Quote:
If you, my fellow Americans, will not demand the impeachment of the worst president in American history, a man who is a traitor to our Constitution, an instigator of unjust wars, a destroyer of worlds, a strutting global tyrant, and a threat to the very survival of human life on this planet, who will you impeach?

This George W. Bush, this wastrel, this smirking twister of truth, this volcano of lies, this heinous torturer, this killer of innocents, this Thief-of-Baghdad, this mass murderer, this open sewer of aggressive militarism, in short, this blot on the very name of America, must be compelled by Congress and the American People to answer for his alleged and apparent crimes.

He, and every culpable member of his cabal must be impeached and made to stand trial before the Senate for the Genocide of Iraq and countless other criminal acts. One of the least of his crimes, ordering wiretaps without court order in violation of the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, entitles him to a five-year incarceration at Leavenworth for trampling the Fourth Amendment's protection against unreasonable search and seizure. His most heinous crime, the War of Aggression upon Iraq, violates the United Nations Charter and other convenants to which the U.S. is signatory, a war when unleashed then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan denounced as "illegal." Surely, Americans who are too timid to sign a petition for impeachment might well consider there are 650,000 Iraqis who, had they lived, could have written their signatures in their own blood. Far from being the war of self-defense it was claimed, the war on Iraq is a crime of aggression since exposed as a mechanism for stealing Iraq's oil wealth, and a war that has brought about the destruction and dismemberment of an innocent nation.

In October, 2005, an Ipsos Public Affairs poll found 50% of the public agreed with the statement, "If President Bush did not tell the truth about his reaons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should consider holding him accountable by impeaching him." A year later a Newsweek Poll found a majority favored impeachment. Now, as new evidence comes to light each day documenting how Bush and his aides lied this nation into a criminal war of aggression, yes, just as Hitler lied when he invaded Poland, just as Stalin lied when he invaded Finland, just as Mussolini lied when he invaded Ethiopia, just as Japan lied when it invaded China, the numbers of Americans who want George W. Bush impeached is swelling by the millions. Passively favoring impeachment, though, is not the same as actively demanding it of the Congress.

Sherwood Ross certainly doesn't hold back on his feelings about W. Read more at the link.

there are no secret gestures in his handwavery. Mr. Bush is not nearly smart enough to engage in such things.

Like all severely mentally handicapped he does inexplicable and utterly retarded things as a matter of course because that's just what he is. Retarded, a congenial(mostly so long as he isn't questioned and they hold off the tantrums with drugs) retard who can be easily handled by those in his immediate circles. A convenient puppet for Cheney who is the real purpose and direction behind the vacant eyes of our presidential tool. Bought and paid for by Cheney's corporate allies and sponsors.

EDIT: I would truly like to see impeachments, they're long overdue. But they won't happen, the system has become too ossified to actually change on more than a superficial level.

Too bad they don't bring back the Iroquois form of impeachment. They gave the chief 3 chances to change his mind, and if he didn't , they beat his skull into paste and used his brains to paint the longhouse wall!

It has been surmised that the Iroquois League was the source of the impeachment doctrine in the constitution.

We were taught much of the Constitution was based on Iroquois teachings. I have no idea if that is true but it sounded good when I was in school.

If the Iroquois way was followed for George's impeachment, there wouldn't be enough of his brains to paint a square inch of the longhouse wall.
