"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

"Do-It-yourself" Impeachment

Impeach for Peace is asking that everyone who believes that the President has committed impeachable offenses and wants to see public hearings download, and mail, petitions to ask the Congress to hold impeachment hearings.

The “Do-It-Yourself Impeachment” is based on the Jefferson rules and has been used before (1830).

October 12th is the National mail in day for all of the Impeachment petitions. 2-3 copies need to be mailed. One copy to Sensenbrenner, Chair of House Judiciary Committee, one copy to Conyers, Ranking Member and Minority Chair of the House Judiciary Committee and one copy to your own Representative (optional).

I do not know what kind of an impact that it will make, but it is worth a try. We must do anything and everything possible. They want to mail them all in one day so that the offices will be flooded. If they receive enough it will hopefully garner media attention.

There are many resolutions that have been passed all over the Country and several jurisdictions have an Impeachment Initiative on their ballots. There are instructions here on how to have your local city/board/organization pass one.

There are many sites on the Internet dedicated to Impeachment and documenting all of the crimes of the Bush Administration. Here are just a few:

After Downing Street dot org Documentation of impeachable offenses and a tremendous amount of activism.

Impeach Bush dot tv Features arguments and talking points for impeachment.

Impeach Pac dot org Representatives who are running on an impeachment platform.

A previous post where I outlined the Case for Impeachment.

There are so many reasons for impeachment and I am increasingly concerned that we will never get our Country back or regain any credibility in the world until impeachment occurs. The crimes are immense and the world has suffered greatly at the hands of this regime. This is necessary and it is the right thing to do. It is our responsibility to end the tyranny.

    Hey Anjha,

    Read Bagley's comment. He's an idiot who simply fails to comprehend that you have a devoted following.

    I'm reading/visiting often and trying to follow the majority of links you provide. Sometimes several days pass between visits but I typically manage to review the current week's articles. You give a lot of homework and that's usually why I fail to post. Don't let the limited # of comments stop you. The valuable info you provide is more important than the comments. Your intelligent readers realize this.

    OTF, that really means a lot.

    I hope that I am reaching a lot of people but the numbers do not say so.

    As always, please feel free to link my site anywhere or email it to as many people as possible.

    The number of petitions alone that I am gathering have to make some kind of a difference.

    I am so limited on what I can do. My brain and heart want to do so much more than my body will allow; this site it the only thing that I have to attempt to feel like I am making some kind of a difference.

    Thank you again for your support.
