King George Redux

The people who do the work of this website began their trek a couple years ago with a petition to the Democratic members of the House of Representatives and to the Democratic members of the United States Senate for impeachment of George W. Bush for treason, high crimes and misdemeanors. Our case was, and still is, that the war in Iraq is illegal, being based on deception, lies, and outright disregard for the annoying details of the Congressional resolution that authorized the use of arms against a real clear and present danger to the United States.

We were soon disabused of our notion that the Constitutional checks and balances were still in effect, for we had ignored the obvious fact that the framers of the Constitution had overlooked the possibility of political parties forming and holding their members to strict adherence to monolithic points of view. Clearly the contemporary Republican Party is incapable of governing under the Constitution because it holds its own opinions and goals more dearly than the Constitution.

Now, we have an admission of multiple felonies committed by President Bush. In effect, Mr. Bush has crowned himself King of the United States by ignoring the Constitution, which we have on good authority he believes to be nothing but "a goddamned piece of paper," anyway.

Folks, the time has come. Bush and Cheney must be impeached! The very existence of our Republic hangs in the balance! Failure to impeach is to say that it's okay to ignore the Constitution. There is no going back from that position, no matter how hard you try.
