For those of you who would question the political expediency of impeachment, for those of you who would claim that we must deal with "more important issues" while we have a chance, and ESPECIALLY for those of you who would say that impeachment is simply not a realistic goal, I say this: What sort of example would NOT impeaching set for the future direction of this, our great country? To tacitly permit crime after crime, lie after lie, the murder and torturing of people by the stroke of a pen, the gutting of our freedoms and rights, the shredding of our constitution, and setting our country on the brink of totaltarianism. I don't know about you, but to me impeachment is not one issue among many issues, it is THE ISSUE.
Can you imagine George Bush, Dick Cheney, and all the other lying murdering theives and scoundrels among them simply walking away in 2008 and retiring in places like Crawford, Texas? It makes me sick to my stomach even thinking about it. It is, in fact, simply UNthinkable. We must never, ever allow their crimes to stand. We must take a stand here and now. We will never, ever allow this to happen again. Not in our country. Not now. Not Ever.
We are the ones who must now prosecute this war at home. And what we must seek is simple: Justice. For the sake of our nation and the future of our country, we must impeach.
