An Open Letter to the Democrats in Congress 

Regarding Dennis Kucinich's 35 Articles of Impeachment against George Bush: This is something that should have been done the same day the current Congress was sworn in. In fact, it is one of the reasons the Democratic Party was voted into the majority in November, 2006. Nearly two years later, the Democrats have done nothing that the people expressed demand for in that election. Our troops are still fighting -- and dying -- in Iraq, the Executive Branch is trying to lie us again into another war in Iran, more evidence of very high crimes and misdemeanors in the Oval Office surfaces every day with nothing done about it. All the while, the economy has gone in the tank because we've squandered America's good will abroad, along with a large part of her treasury, destroying her reputation and the dollar in the process.

And yet, the person responsible is still in power. By not taking action, it just tells the rest of the world that all Americans agree with the course this country has taken, endangering Americans everywhere. Of course, this proposition is not true -- the vast majority of Americans support impeachment. Congress is elected to serve the Will of the People, not lobbyists and their own possibility of re-election.

I have little doubt that the Democrats will win elections by landslides this fall, because of what the Republicans have done to wreck this great country in the last seven years. I have no doubts that if the Democrats don't work to repair the damage and punish the perpetrators, the president elected in 2012 will be a member of neither party.

Listen to your presidential nominee's motto: "Change."
