SIGN THE PETITION.
That's right, we said the "I" word. And you should be saying it too -- to your family, your friends, your neighbors, your pets and the hearty 26% of Americans who somehow still believe the Bush/Cheney team more worthy of sitting in the Oval Office than an undisclosed location stripped of all authority to further damage the country we love.
You'll want to say it even more after watching our video [below] with the evidence for impeachment right there.
Dick Cheney has been a malevolent force on the checks and balances of American government for over six years. He has
subverted government processes to lead us into this tragedy in Iraq, and is now seeking to do the same with Iran. Two
countries, mind you, he did business with while CEO of Halliburton.
We are at an important moment in American history. For if we don't take action in light of the High Crimes and Misdemeanors committed by one Richard Cheney, we might as well throw the word away. Because there will never be a time when it is more justified.
SIGN THE PETITION.
14 representatives already support H. Res 333, the articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney. Your signatures will be used to get other House members to to sign on. We are working with a substantial and growing coalition led by Democrats.com and AfterDowningStreet.org.
Let's make this travesty a turning point in our history. Please join us in restoring democratic principles to our government by
IMPEACHING DICK CHENEY.

- Why impeachment of Cheney and Bush is imperative:
"Impeaching, convicting and removing Dick Cheney and George W. Bush from office goes beyond punishing them for their crimes. It goes to sending a message to their successors, assuming there will be successors come January 20, 2009, that no one is above the law and failure to 'preserve, protect and defend' the US Constitution, criminality and corruption will not be tolerated...."

- Time Is Right for New Pentagon Papers:
"Sitting next to West and Gravel, Ellsberg repeated the plea that he is making in speeches all over the United States: 'The equivalent of the Pentagon Papers exist in safes all over Washington, not only in the Pentagon, but in the CIA, the State Department and elsewhere. My message is to them: Take the risk, reveal the truth under the lies of your own bosses and your superiors, obey your oath to the Constitution, which every one of those officials took, not to the commander in chief, but to the Constitution of the United States.'..."

- The Subcommittee on the Constitution | AfterDowningStreet.org:
"Dennis Kucinich did an end run around Nancy Pelosi, introducing a bill to impeach Cheney in April (HRes 333). It is aquiring cosponsors and has now been referred to the subcommitte on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties. Here is a link to the subcommitte's web page...."
- Editor & Publisher | Editorials Hit Libby's Get-Out-of-Jail-Free Card:
"The bloggers, politicians, and TV pundits weighed in quickly Monday after President Bush took the surprisingly sudden step of commuting Lewis "Scooter" Libby's 30-month prison sentence for perjury and obstruction of justice in the CIA leak case. Now newspaper editorials are appearing, and nearly all of them have condemned the Bush act...."
- The Historical Origins of Impeachment | The Intentions of the Framers
The following is from a report written and released by the Judiciary Committee in 1974 in the aftermath of the Watergate crisis: “In the [Virgina] convention George Mason argued that the President might use his pardoning power to ‘pardon crimes which were advised by himself’ or, before indictment or conviction, ‘to stop inquiry and prevent detection.’ James Madison responded: ‘[I]f the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds tp believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty.’”
- David Sirota: Why Washington's Pundits Are Scared of You:
"...at some point in the last few years, things changed. The people - those sheep that the Heroic Herders like Krauthammer and Will bravely corralled, those unwashed masses that the Courageous Cleansers like Klein and Friedman valiantly scrubbed down - the people found their own power through the Internet, through thousands of blogs like this one, through newsletters, through alternative media and - gasp! - through actual organizing. The pundits have lost their ability to order the people's representatives around. They have lost their ability to rule. In short, they have been stripped of their 'ocracy' - and we are led to believe that means we are experiencing a national or even global crisis...."
