MSNBC Poll Shows an Overwhelming Majority Supports Impeachment

At present, an MSNBC Poll is collecting public sentiment about the impeachment of George Bush.  Currently, the overwhelming majority of of the ~660,000 respondents say “Yes”.  For reference, here’s the question:

Do you believe President Bush’s actions justify impeachment?

  • Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial.
  • No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
  • No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching.
  • I don’t know.

The “No” options are almost funny – how could anyone believe that the Bush Administration is not responsible for numerous disasters and mismanagement of the United States?  Thankfully, the total “No” responses add up to less than 10%. 

If nothing else, the results of this survey (which is, admittedly, non-scientific), this illustrates the huge disconnect between a supposed democracy and the people that are governed by it.  I hope it makes it obvious that a government “Of the People, By the People, and For the People” requires us all to hold our elected officials accountable.  If justice prevails, Bush won’t be able to sneak away without having to answer for his many crimes.

    Americans of all parties.

    Take to the streets.

    Over ride the obstruction of a compromised congress and media.

    Demand Impeachment to restore Lawful Government, the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Act.

    Pass it on.
