It is time for Democrats to get up off their jelly backbones and impeach George Bush before his Imperial Presidency completely dismantles what is left of our democracy! But first, they will have to find the courage to aggressively campaign and expose his fear mongering for the demagoguery that it is! Second, they will have do their homework and take no prisoners when confronting the evangelical fascists and the media that is imbedded with the Imperial Presidency. Third, in this campaiagn, they should name and confront every Republican who voted to impeach Bill Clinton and expose them with a comparison of the charges!
President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to illegally spy on Americans inside the United States, without obtaining a warrant and bypassing the court that was specifically established to sanction (or prohibit) such domestic activity.

Moreover, President Bush has orchestrated an assault on U.S. citizens' civil liberties and constitutional protections. This includes the construction of the Patriot Act provisions that facilitate broad scale invasions of privacy--- entering a home when occupants are not there and, without notice, snooping thru library records and other private papers. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about sex.
He has also presided over the authorizing of FBI intelligence operations against citizen’s protest groups active in causes such as the environment, animal cruelty, poverty relief and those protesting te Iraq war.
In his hubris, he defines the law as being what he declares it to be. He assumes presidential powers that makes Richard Nixon look like a piker. And with monumental comtempt, he looks us in the eye and announces he will continue down his imperial path whether we like it or not.
It is time to say NO MORE to the slicing and dicing of the core values that made this a great nation. It is time to stop curtailing the very freedoms we say we are fighting for in Iraq!
