"Impeach Bush!" Resounds Across the Country

Across the Country the Call for Impeachment is Heard on March 20
To Every Congressional Candidate that Wants Your Vote: Demand They Support Impeachment
Spring is Here - a Time for ImpeachBush.org Lawn Signs to Blossom Everywhere

Dear Liberty Forum Member,

Congratulations on making March 20 such a powerful success! On the first anniversary of the attack on Iraq, people came into the streets united in huge numbers to repudiate the Bush administration. From coast to coast, in New York, in San Francisco and Los Angeles, in Chicago, in Crawford, TX the call to Impeach Bush also rang out. Demonstrations were held in more than 250 cities and towns throughout the U.S. and VoteToImpeach contingents and individuals carrying the Impeach Bush message were out in full force.

It is no wonder that so many more people are joining the campaign to remove Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft from office. Each and every day a new lie promoted by the administration unravels in full public view. It is no longer a secret, if it ever was, that the administration was planning to carry out a war to conquer Iraq from the first day it took office. While the people of the country were in a state of shock and mourning, Bush and high administration officials saw September 11 as an "opportunity" to escalate its plans for war against Iraq. (See the accounts of former Secretary of the Treasury Paul O'Neill and those of Richard Clarke, Bush's former top counterintelligence official.) Bush's war of aggression has led to tens of thousands of deaths in Iraq, nearly 600 deaths of U.S. Gi's and created a climate of hatred.

Over the past months, impeachment activists have worked to introduce impeachment resolutions in their local city and town councils, and have undertaken letter writing campaigns and delegation visits to their representatives to push for impeachment. All of us have built this grassroots movement across the United States, reaching neighbors, friends and co-workers to build the campaign.

March 20 was built from the ground up. As people distribute leaflets, flyers, bumper stickers, wear t-shirts, and display lawn signs, each of us is making a difference. During the months ahead every candidate running for office (and all 435 members of the House of Representatives are up for election) should hear the message from the people that they demand that elected officials uphold the Constitution and impeach George W. Bush, Cheney and the others.

Let's get the word out there as far and wide as possible. Spring is not only a time of renewal (and hopefully warmer weather) it is also a time to make sure every block has an ImpeachBush.org lawn sign, that for every median strip cluttered with candidate signs the bright yellow ImpeachBush.org sign is prominent, and that the Sticker it to Bush campaign goes into full bloom.
