Groups Across Country Plan for Human Rights and Impeachment Day on Sunday, Dec. 10; Many Events Already Planned, More in the Works

December 10th is Human Rights Day, and this year we're making it Human Rights and Impeachment Day. Here's our slogan: "Putting Impeachment on the Table."

This is a chance to get organized locally and learn what's needed to lobby the new Congress for the investigations and impeachment hearings that will restore the rule of law to America.

You can sign up to attend a town hall forum, rally, vigil, training session, or house party in your area.

Or create a new event and post it online for others to sign up and attend.

If you choose to organize a new event or to help organize one that's already being planned, you'll want to check the list of available speakers and the many useful resources (petitions, information sheets, talking points, tools for honoring fallen troops, dramatic plays, videos, songs, imPEACHment food, shirts, signs, puppets) linked here:

Impeachment's not enough. The whole crew should be tried for crimes against the US and humanity..
Donnie Darko
When has a US President EVER been convicted of his malfeasance?

It's a waste of time. Rather than pursuing sour grapes and wasting years of legsilative time as the grudge bearing Republicans did in 1998, how about we prove ourselves to be the better man and legislate for the constituents instead of our own resentment?

Yes, Bush is a liar, fraudulent to the point of criminality, and in my opinion, so self deluded that he would tell you that the colour blue was pink, but unfortunately people in his position of power are beyond reproach unless we stage a revolution. Even Nixon, who got caught red handed, received no criminal penalties for his criminal behaviour. Using boring old mostly out of touch rich men and women (Congress and the Senate) as your means for overthrowing the Bush regime hardly seems like a promising plan. The best they can do now is thwart his agenda, force his hand on Iraq, then wipe their hands clean of him and his deadly agenda in 2008.

Purty much.

Waste of time and money, all to get back for Blowjobgate.
I think there needs to be investigations and oversight. If the investigations turn up crimes that demand impeachment, then I think it absolutely has to be done. And by crimes that demand it, I don't mean nitpicky, debateable shit or things that many people consider crimes, yet were authorised by congress. I mean big, ugly crimes that most Republicans will even agree cannot be tolerated. Impeachment shouldn't be a goal or purpose to drive toward. It also should never be off the table with any executive.
