Another letter to my Congresscritter…

I have written to my Congressional Representative on several occasions in the last six years regarding my support for the impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

My support for impeachment has not changed, and I urge you once again to vote to impeach.

Impeachment is NOT a partisan issue. It is an American issue.

These two men have trampled the Constitution and violated the public trust. "Of those to whom much has been given, much is expected." As two of the most powerful individuals on the planet, much has certainly been given to these men.

It is not sufficient to write off their high crimes and misdemeanors by saying they'll be out of office in a few months. That is not sufficient. That is not just. That is not right. That is not in the best interests of the People.

We are a nation of laws, not of men. And as a nation of laws, we rely on the ancient legal principle of precedence. Allowing these two men to go unpunished for their abuse of the public trust sets a horrifying precedent for future presidencies–Republican or Democrat.

G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney must be impeached to send a clear message to all future presidents, including candidates McCain and Obama, that this abuse of power, this abuse of the public trust, these high crimes and misdemeanors, will not be tolerated.

Please support Rep. Kucinich's articles of impeachment. Lobby the Speaker of the House. Congress will not grind to a halt. Go beyond party politics and do the right thing.

Impeach, try, and convict George W. Bush and Richard Cheney for high crimes and misdemeanors. And if the evidence warrsnts, turn them over to the Hague for indictment for war crimes.
