I like this guy- I like his style! But he could go a little further than veiled threats.
If Democrats will not impeach this president, if they in fact actively undermine attempts to express the popular will of the party's grassroots membership, I quit.
I’m giving my party notice. Effective immediately, I’m going to my local voter registrar’s office and changing my registration to Green Party, and I won’t be back to vote for Democrats until they take a stand of principle and begin impeachment hearings to remove President George W. Bush from Office. I will be sending word of my resignation to the Democratic National Committee, and to Speaker Pelosi.
I urge every Democrat who cares about the future of the country and the survival of the Constitution to join me. It doesn't matter whether you join the Greens, the Socialists, the Populists, or just go unaffiliated. What matters is that you quit the Democratic Party.
Elections in the U.S. of late are being won and lost by narrow margins. If the Democratic leadership sees that hundreds of thousands, or maybe millions of us, are not going to play their game anymore, maybe they’ll finally start acting like real Democrats again, if only to win back the progressive voters, like me, who I’m suggesting here should abandon them.
If you do decide to quit, and to notify party leaders of your decision, please also send me an email with just “I quit” in the subject line (no messages please!) at: I_Quit_This_Party@yahoo.com
I’ll be publishing the results at my site, www.thiscantbehappening.net
, on a weekly basis, and if the numbers get large enough, I'll be going to the mainstream press and the DNC with them.
And please spread the word.

This is a winner. With elections so close like he says, and people this divided we need more of you to write in and end this farce of a government in power today. With what we know now about subterfuge from within, the constitution must be reinstated with the checks and balances reinforced so no one can alter the intent of the Paper it's written on. That they won't have power in '08 may not be as important to them as it seems to be, as they may be in collusion with the Repugs over power. Either way, we will be a lot wiser to do it and see what their reaction is, so we can move on and get better representation.
Go Green and don't just threaten it! Go all the way!!! Tell the Republocrats that their form of politics just doesn't cut it anymore- BOTH Parties. Time for a new approach. They had their chance and they blew it again. We want someone who can bring the dream of America into the reality of a world gone mad from greed. The reality now is just an illusion to encourage hatred for the delusional acquisition of world power. Stop these madmen and women before it's too late!
