My Letter to Pelosi: How Will You Fulfill Your Oath, If Not Impeachment?
by laserflight, Tue Jul 31, 2007 at 02:49:08 PM EDT
If you were to somehow become President, Mrs. Pelosi, would you use the unConstitutional powers Bush/Cheney have amassed for the Unitary Executive Branch?
Would you torture? Illegally spy? Lie to get the US to occupy more countries to steal their resources? Kill hundreds of thousands of people for no right reason? Retain the right to martial law for no real reason? Imprison and seize the possessions of those who disagree with your policies? Declare yourself the only Definer of a National Emergency wherein you could take totalitarian power?
Would you keep Bush's recent Executive Orders in place? Refuse all subpoenas and accountability to the American people? Fire government employees for political gain and get away with it? Keep corrupt and incompetent "leaders" at the highest level of government?
Would you support the next Democratic President, whomever he or she may be, to use these powers?
Explain to us why your refusal to even open the topic of impeachment and begin the investigations doesn't leave this country wide open to these kinds of power abuses forever.
I am not writing to bug you. I am writing to get an answer. This is my country too, and I am your constituent in your role as Speaker.
For God's sake, and America's, please explain somewhere in public how you can protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights without even TRYING impeachment.
If there is another way, tell us. And do it. If not, I and many others will unceasingly demand that you RETHINK YOUR REFUSAL TO IMPEACH. Now.
Before the country we know is is dead. Before Iran is attacked. Before the US is attacked from the sheer hatred of those whom it has illegally attacked and exploited.
For God's sake, Mrs. Pelosi. Tell us how you WILL fulfill your oath, not how you won't. Put SOMETHING real ON the table.
