Impeach Bush yourself! This is much more than just a petition.

There's a little known and rarely used clause of the in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.

That's where we come in. In addition to the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial. ImpeachforPeace.org has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.

You can initiate the impeachment process yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information in the blanks (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in.


More information on the precedent for submitting an impeachment
memorial, and the House Rules on this procedure, can also be found at
the above address.

If you have any doubts that Bush has committed crimes warranting
impeachment, read this page: http://ImpeachForPeace.org/evidence/

If you're concerned that impeachment might not be the best strategy
at this point, read the bottom of this page:

REB 84 said...

After watching THE DARK SIDE, I say Impeach Cheney first.

The Unknown Candidate said...

Reb 84, I had the same thought. Although I think I'd impeach Cheney, Rummy, Bush at the same time. They are all culpable. Ignorance and inexperience (on Dubya's part) are no excuse for the lies and abuses of power that have transpired.

"The Dark Side" included all the makings of a Shakespearean or Greek tragedy. Lots of "fatal flaws" to go around: Tenet and Powell especially, having traded their integrity for power (Tenet) or loyalty (Powell). It's quite tragic, really.
