With an election right around the corner a lot of people say, "Why seek impeachment now? - Bush will be out of office soon, and the government needs to focus on other things." Impeachment is an official filing of charges, equivalent to to the process of indictment. This attempt is not so much to remove Bush and Cheney from office BUT to hold them accountable for their crimes, and create a record to prevent similar abuse of our democracy in the future. Are we really going to let Bush and Cheney off the hook? If we allow the President and Vice President to 'get away with it', we are openly saying that their type of conduct is permissible in future administrations. Any and all crimes committed by the President and Vice President must be put on the official record to create an historical account, to facilitate future pursuit of law enforcement activities concerning the crimes, to remind future Administrations to adhere to the law, and to avert another looming illegal war - this time against Iran. The Articles of Impeachment put the Administration's crimes officially on record and hold the individuals accountable under domestic and international law, even after they leave office.
What is impeachment?
Impeachment is an official investigation of the conduct of the President and Vice President. It is a Constitutional responsibility given to Congress to prevent the abuse of Executive power. Impeachment is a formal filing of charges, similar to the process of indictment. The person impeached would then be subject to a trial in the US Senate.
I am trying to help give Dennis Kucinich 1,000,000 signatures to bring to Congress by Sept 10 to show that we want the Bush Administration charged for it's violations of the Constitution, and that we will not tolerate further crimes.
