Why did we vote them in?

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Prosperity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Great words written by great people.

And where are we right now? What was the reason we voted for change? To have the 911 Commission being headed/investigated by another of Bush's cohorts, Kissinger?


Cherish your way of life. It will not continue.

On Election Day, the American people voted overwhelmingly for change. We are thrilled to congratulate Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid and we fully support Pelosi's 100-hour agenda.

But Speaker Pelosi says impeachment is "off the table." How can we let George Bush and Dick Cheney get away with the Constitutional crimes they have committed - and continue to commit?

How can there be real change when Bush and Cheney insist on occupying Iraq forever at incalculable cost to human life and national debt?

And how can there be real change when Bush and Cheney insist the "War on Terror" gives them the power to invade Iran whenever they please?

And how can there be real change when Bush and Cheney break the law every day through torture and warrantless wiretaps?

And how can there be real change when Bush and Cheney nullify every law they don't like with signing statements?

On Saturday, and our progressive allies will launch a nationwide grassroots mobilization for impeachment in Philadelphia near Independence Hall, where the Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. The mobilization is called ImpeachForChange. Our goals include:

  1. A grassroots petition drive to collect 1 million signatures at

  3. Expand our Citizens Impeachment Commission to add prominent citizens, celebrities and bloggers

Transform Political Yard Signs into Impeach Signs

Are there lots of obsolete campaign signs littering your neighborhood? Recycle them!

Plan a sign-painting party to transform those signs into patriotic messages for regime change at home that you can put up all around town. Imagine a thousand signs around your city with such messages as "IMPEACH" in giant letters. Or make a series of them with a single word on each: "Lying" "Spying" "Torture" "IMPEACH!" and plant them in a row along a busy street.
