• George W. Bush has DISOBEYED OUR LAWS and declared himself above them. His administration has stated that he has the power and "reserves the right" to ignore laws if he so chooses.
• He lied to Congress and to the American people to justify an invasion of a country that did not threaten us. In the year and a half leading up to the war, G.W. Bush knew that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction and no relationships to 9/11, al Qaida or Osama bin Laden.
• He ordered the National Security Agency to execute secret and illegal spying on the telephone and internet conversations of millions of Americans. To hide this illegal activity, the Bush administration has directed the NSA, the same agency that was ordered to execute the spying, to block an investigation of itself. Congress needs to investigate this government intrusion immediately.
• He is systematically eroding civil and human rights, along with our Bill of Rights. Our government now holds thousands of prisoners without due process of law, and more are handed over to nations acting for us. These prisoners are subjected to torture and degrading, inhumane treatment that violate international law.
• He has selectively leaked classified information for purposes of political gain.
These are all impeachable offenses.

We must not allow this or any future President to undermine our Constitution.

We must not allow this administration to launch further illegal, pre-emptive wars in Iran or elsewhere.

We must reestablish democratic procedures that have been suspended by the administration's exploitation of 9/11.

The survival of our democracy depends on us.

What can we, the people, do?
1. Educate ourselves. Read the 'Articles of Impeachment Against George W. Bush, published by the Center for Constitutional Rights. Visit websites such as or

2. Write our congressional representatives demanding they initiate immediate impeachment proceedings and support Rep. John Conyers' resolution (H Res. 635) to investigate impeachment.

3. Write letters to the editor of our local newspapers, stating our views and making our case to our fellow citizens.

4. Initiate or support local resolutions calling for impeachment of Bush/Cheney, as towns in Vermont, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and elsewhere have done.

5. Support candidates running on an impeachment platform.
