A Day That Will Live in Infamy
On June 22, 2007 George Bush declared both he and Vice President Dick Cheney above the law.
This demands a response.
I am attempting to organize a letter/email campaign with the help of Janet and Ron who comment on Crooks and Liars and everyone else is welcome. The idea is to set up a webpage where people can go and click/sign/send the following letter to every member of Congress, all the newspapers, radio and TV stations across the country. We will also be encouraging people to send letters through the US Postal service to their own representatives and local news outlets.
Here is the letter:
America was founded on the basic principle that Tyranny had no place in government. Suddenly we are faced with a President and Vice President who think the exact opposite. We, as Americans have a choice to make. We can dishonor those who founded our country. We can dishonor those who have stood on principal to defend the values of our country (many with their lives) or we can stand up and demand that the Congress start impeachment proceedings on both the President and the Vice President of the United States of America. On Friday June 22, 2007 both the President and the Vice President of the United States stated that they are not subject to the law; that somehow they are above and beyond the three branches of government. They apparently feel they exist in yet a fourth branch never mentioned in the United States Constitution. They do not specifically name it, but I think we know its name and its name is Tyranny. To all members of the Congress and the media, those who seem to wield the majority of what is left of what little power this Administration has not yet seized we urge you to respond before our nation as it was intended to be by our Founding Fathers ceases to exist entirely.
Anyone interested in helping out should contact me at email@example.com
We have found a list of all news outlets across the country, 24,000 in all for $330.00. If you feel inclined to contribute to that cost it would be appreciated. We are also looking for ideas on who else should recieve the letter, Federal judges come to mind. Any thoughts or ideas are encouraged and welcome.
