Arrest bush!

The following is an email sent today to the DNC. I strongly urge everyone to do the same, if you don't have time you can use mine.

Dear Madame Speaker
It comes with great dismay, the news that you intend to reconcile with Mr. bush. Your elevation to Speaker of the House attributable to the great grass roots movement behind the Blue Tsunami that swept the republicans out of office on election day. The people of the grass roots movement believe bush to be a criminal of the highest order and feel that he belongs in jail. I know I speak for many who consider bush to be a mass murderer as well as a fraud in that he lied to the American public in his quest for approval to wage war against Iraq. He is also guilty of violating his oath of office by undermining the very Constitution that he swore to protect and uphold. Mr. bush holds no great love for our country and in fact despises the very priciples it stands for and should therefore be considered a traitor. Ms. Pelosi I ask you in the name of justice to remove Mr. bush from office. To continue to work with him is to be an accomplice to his crimes. Please do the right thing, and see to it that justice is served so that the United States of America can once again take its rightful place in the world as the leader of democratic ideals and freedom. We the people delivered a mandate to our government on November 7th and we insist that you carry it to fruition.
Thank you

Pat liked the idea so here's her contribution,

Madame Speaker,

The Grass Roots movement was well aware directly after 9-11 that the Bush administration's assertions about Iraq were false.

The Neocons had been pushing for action against Iraq for years. They were looking for an excuse that would generate reaction from the public. 9-11 was a perfect happenstance for that response. However, even though the adminstration DID KNOW that there were threats to use planes as bombs by terrorists, the adminstration appointees within the FAA struck language that would have changed crew response to a hijacking. Bush choose what his advisors suggested, do nothing.

I witnessed a FAA adminstration striking the language of a draft of regulations that would have suggested an active response to hijacking rather than the passive response that was in effect. And NO ONE can tell me that what I saw personally was not real.

There was no one on watch. The 9-11 subcommittee supported this fact.

The movement organised, and we saw some of the largest demonstrations and letter writing campaigns ever initiated.

The Democratic leadership chose to ignore the pleadings of the Grass Roots movement and authorized the funding AND the actions against the Iraqi people and their government. Now that the Grass Roots upsurge has replaced this government with new active Democratic leaders, it appears that the Democratic leadership is again making deals that are contrary to the wishes of the very movement that has worked so hard for change.

I will warn you that the anti war movement is strong and growing disatisfied with either of the major parties. The Democratic leadership will face the same music that the Republicans have at the hands of the voters.

Even though you do not say so, you know that Mr. Bush and others lied to Congress.

On another matter, arms merchants are corrupting some members of Congress. Duncan Hunter should be investigated further. His presence on specific subcommittees is a bane for competitive bidding on contracts. We had no help from the Democratic National leadership to replace him in this last election. Most of his funds for running for office come from outside of our district. He does not represent the district at all. Candidates lined up, and it would have assisted in defeating him, had you worked with constituents in choosing a candidate in residence. We might have beat him. We needed you. And you were not there.

I think you are right. At first, I was just giddy that a change had occured and a chance for a real change would happen. I don't think it will without continued pressure. We have already seen Bush hold out an olive branch with one hand and a back-stabbing knife with the other. He is staying true to form and we have no choice, but to put the pressure on. Thanks.

Hey, there's a great rant on the same subject at..

I'm enjoying the prospects of regime change and all the new hope that springs from it but at the same time I'm flashing back to 1992 and remembering thinking that Clinton would eventually go after the iran-contra conspiritors but it never happened. Now we're dealing with the same people all over again and we can't let them get away this time. No more business as usual for these people.

Great letters, Paul and Pat. I'm gonna sit right down and write one myself.

I seriously doubt that the democratic-led house and senate will pursue any bold moves toward justice and accountability for the war-criminal-in-chief and his cronies, especially with a presidential election in a couple of years. But that doesn't mean we should take the pressure off.

Actually it would be politically expediant to pursue impeachment. In our country's history, EVERY time a party has pushed for an impeachment, they have been re-elected the next time around!
