January 6, 2007 -- Over 1000 people gathered in Nancy Pelosi's district, on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, to spell out the message "IMPEACH!" "America is a great country," said event organizer Brad Newsham, a local cab driver and author. "But President Bush has betrayed our faith. He mislead us into a disastrous war, and is trampling on our Constitution. He has to go. Now. I hope Nancy Pelosi is listening today."

A majority of Americans share Newsham's sentiments. A 2006 Zogby poll found that 52% of Americans agreed with the statement: "If President Bush wiretapped American citizens without the approval of a judge, do you agree or disagree that Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment?"

As an aside, almost 60% of voters in San Francisco County approved Proposition J, which is a "Call for Bush/Cheney Impeachment, Adopting a Policy Calling for the Impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney"

To me its pretty clear that the Democrats are enablers of fascism. But lets get this idea out that they either do their constitutional duty by the removal of these war criminals and usurpers of representive democracy or "we" start the beating of drums for breaking up the empire. Hell they have no people's military backing them .. ofcourse there is Blackwater USA and DynCorp, but using them would esculate a "divorce".

Look where is that mighty army?

ok start chanting "Either They Go or We Go! Impeachment or Divorce!"
