Considering that Bush, Cheney, and their cronies are still running this nation, there’s a good chance that a lot of American people have just buried their heads in the sand. They likely think of those who call for impeachment as “hippies” that should be summarily dismissed. The facts, of course, lead to a very different conclusion. I recently found a blog forum post (courtesy of Digg), that helps illustrate some particular details. Evidence for Impeachment – 2007 provides dozens of links to news articles and other documents. From the posting:
The past year has seen the public exposure of enough evidence of old, ongoing, and new crimes, abuses of power, and impeachable offenses by George Bush and Dick Cheney that in any remotely representative democracy, these two thugs would be out of office and behind bars. The chief reason this does not shock us is that the same could be said, and was said, of each of the previous six years. It’s been quite a millennium so far for Washington, D.C.
Some of us began this year expecting something different. We had worked to elect Democratic majorities in Congress so that we might move in the direction of impeachment. If we didn’t get to impeachment right away, we thought, at least real investigations with the power of subpoena would push a reluctant Congress in the right direction. With House committees having come within a vote of starting investigations, with the Democrats having shut down the Senate to try to force an investigation, with Chairman-to-be John Conyers having published a book on Bush and Cheney’s crimes and held unofficial hearings in the basement, we had reason to be hopeful.
The links provide some little-needed evidence that highlights the dealings of the Bush Administration. This “Greatest Hits” list covers such topics as Secrecy and Coverups, Signing Statements, Election Fraud, Spying, and (my personal favorite) Torture. Sadly, you won’t see any of this stuff on Fox News, so the American public will likely continue to ignore the abuses of our current administration. If only we had a stained black dress for evidence. Maybe then we could impeach Cheney and Bush.
