March 17th, 2008 — 3pm
St Paul, MN, Capitol Building
It is now undeniable that the Federal Government has failed us completely. We have asked our representatives to hold the Bush Administration accountable. Instead, they have blocked the Impeachment movement all over our country.
As we approach the anniversary of the illegal Iraq invasion, we have not given up on the idea of holding the criminals in the Bush Administration or those who enable them accountable. Justice can only come through peace. Since the Bush administration has insisted they will not end the occupation while they’re in office, if we wish for the occupation to end before 1/20/09, we must impeach. There is something that YOU can do. It is now time for Plan B.
Impeach for Peace researched a method for impeaching the President or Vice President using a little known and rarely used part of the Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives (“Jefferson’s Manual”). This document actually empowers individual states to initiate the impeachment process. All that’s required is that the MN House and Senate pass an impeachment resolution.
So spread the word, tell your friends, your family, your coworkers, your allies. We will hold a rally Monday, March 17th, on the steps of the Capitol Building in St Paul. When we are finished with the rally, we will storm the Capitol Building. We shall demand that the Minnesota House and Senate immediately pass a resolution calling for the Impeachment of George W Bush and Dick Cheney (Contact them yourself Now and demand Impeachment!). Our message will be clear to those inside. If you, as a representative do not support this and treat it with all the urgency it deserves, then you will face opposition in the next election cycle. The message that you will face will be simple, direct and clear. It will be that you refused to honor your Oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution from All Enemies, Foreign and Domestic. That instead you, by your refusal to start impeachment actually defend the criminals in the Bush Administration and continue the illegal occupation in Iraq. We will actively work against your reelection to the MN State Legislature, regardless of your party affiliation. We will make this very personal. This is how we will ensure that you listen to the demands of We the People, instead of the lobbyists who fund your campaigns. Oh and before you try and give us excuses, we have done our homework. We already know that according to the Constitution, an impeachment resolution is virtually the only thing that the Governor is unable to veto.
We can do this, we must do this. The future of our children and our democratic republic depends on it. What we need is YOU showing up and demanding accountability.
Let us know if you’re planning on coming.
