House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi telling us that
Democrats will not try to impeach Bush now or later, we
have an admission that the rule of law is now dead in
America. At least it's dead with Nancy Pelosi. She wants
to appease us with legislative perks. Her strategy: It
doesn't matter that we've lost the Constitution, we'll
make it up to you with a better drug prescription plan.
(She smiles… Applause!)
I don't see any real signs of life anywhere else in
Congress either. Apparently we are to accept and believe
and his cabal did not commit impeachable offenses, or
have entered a new chapter in America where some
people are now above the law. In fact, what she is
telling us is that the Constitution doesn't matter any
more, that administrations rule rather than serve, and
from now on some government officials will be
accountable to no one… ever.
impeachment should have been well under way by now. The
problem is that there has been a political coup, and the
government of the United States has been overthrown.
This is not hyperbole. If you think such a pronouncement
is over the top, it's only because you are uninformed and
not paying attention.
How come no Congress person has stated publicly
that Bush and Co. have committed impeachable offenses and
why have no Representatives filed articles of impeachment?
Is it too late now that they are all complicit? Allowing
Bush to trample the Constitution is treason.
Individual members of Congress have given up their
autonomy and instead of honoring their oath of office,
they've subordinated themselves to party leaders. By
sticking together either as Democrats or Republicans, they
no longer represent the people they took an oath to serve.
They are afraid to tell the truth or do their jobs for
fear of something… fear of losing committee
appointments, the next election, a bright career,
blackmail, worse. Are they afraid of being "Swift
boated" or "Wellstoned?" Maybe all of the
They have succumbed to a political apparatus that now
operates outside the framework of the Constitution itself.
House and Senate rules give some representatives more
power than others… so much so that most representatives
have lost their autonomy and sense of self. That was never
the intention of the Framers.
There is nothing in the Constitution that suggests that
newly elected representatives should have less ability to
represent their constituents or defend the Constitution
than more senior or better politically connected members.
Every member has a duty, an obligation, and a right to
know what he or she needs to know to represent the people
and defend the Constitution. They've neglected their duty,
defied their obligations, and utterly failed to protect
