John Conyers is starting a town hall meeting tour where he is attempting to silence the public on Impeachment. He started the meeting by asking all those holding Impeachment signs to put them down.
The following is a report from a DUer
On impeachment: It is not practical right now. It will never succeed, as they don't have the votes. They would just tie up the legislative process for 4-6 months if they got bogged down in impeachment and they wouldn't get anything done. Then, of course, people would say they didn't get anything done and throw them out.
Instead Conyers will pursue what he calls, get this "A New American Agenda"
where they will pursue anything but Impeachment...
*international law issues and how our country does not follow may of them
*reintroduce legislation to establish the Department of Peace
*We need to work on a single-payer, universal health care bill
*Reform the new bankruptcy law
*We need to do something about Darfur.
*We need to reform the criminal justice system.
*We need to create a whole new paradigm ? we need to change what the U.S. means to the world.
*Go back to the civil rights movement: jobs, justice, peace.
I doubt I need to state the obvious, but does anyone thing anything will be accomplished with Bush in office? This is more stalling.
Conyers is holding his "A New American Agenda" meetings around the country, I suggest that everyone attend them but when he asks you to put your Impeachment signs down, say NO!
IMPEACHMENT IS OUR POSITIVE AGENDA.
How can anyone who is sworn to uphold our constitution think they should just overlook blatant violations of the law and just move on to other things?
We cannot allow John Conyers and Nancy Pelosi to lead our country into stupidity.
I think we should give our Congress a 'Christmas in Iraq' by visiting them this Christmas season and giving them a Christmas like the Iraqis and our troops are experiencing. Show up at their local offices with pictures of the carnage they helped create. Visit their homes with a crowd, signs and read the stories of the reality in Iraq over a loudspeaker. Why should they enjoy a peaceful holiday while they are still ruining the lives of so many?
As some celebrate the birth of Christ, wouldn't it be nice to act in his behalf? Would Jesus be sitting at home enjoying his wealth and privilege meanwhile being responsible for the killing of so many? Take the time to stand outside your congresspersons home reminding them just who they are celebrating. Shout loudly "Thou shall not kill" Thou shall not steal!! Demand Impeachment and cutting the funding off to Halliburton and the other looters.
Let them know that we are not going away. This outrage will only grow until they answer to the will of the people.
