Pass a Bush-Cheney Impeachment Resolution in the Va. General Assembly sign now

BACKGROUND:

On Jan. 1, 2007, a citizen of Alexandria, Va., e-mailed his delegate to the commonwealth's legislature, the General Assembly of Virginia. In asking Del. David Englin to introduce an impeachment resolution against Pres. Bush and Vice Pres. Cheney, the citizen pointed out that activists in several other states -- including California, Vermont, New Jersey, and New Mexico -- already have embarked on their own journey toward having their legislatures introduce the long-overdue impeachment resolution, a process that the U. S. Congress, under guidelines outlined in the Jefferson Manual for Parliamentary Procedure, can initiate its own impeachment process.

In his Jan. 15, 2007, e-mailed reply to his fellow Alexandrian, Democrat Englin demurred: "While the Bush Administration's shortsighted, incompetent, and overly ideological approach to governance represents the worst of American leadership and may well include impeachable offenses, I agree with Speaker Pelosi that impeachment should not be the Democratic Party's top priority." Englin went on to say that the chief collective aim of his fellow Democrats (currently the minority party in the General Assembly) is to exercise the entitlements system for the social welfare and comfort of all Virginians. For Englin's constituent, however, this response brought to mind the following analogy:

Supposing you're on the roof of your house doing some minor repairs. In a couple of hours, you'll have completed the job, but you now realize you need a special tool for one of its chores. This tool lies somewhere in a cabinet in the basement. So you climb down from the roof and proceed to the basement. Upon nearing the cabinet, you detect the pungent odor of an electrical fire. The sight of smoke and flames gives you pause. Do you simply grab the tool and return to the roof, or do you re-order your priorities? Easy answer, right?

And it should be easy for Del. Englin and his colleagues to realize that the very fabric of our republic has erupted into the searing, disabling flame of corruption, official deception, and gross abandonment of the First Principles of self-governance. This petition alerts us all -- signers and recipients alike -- to the critical-mass state into which Bush-Cheney's arson against all measure of accountability has thrust us.

Our signatures hereon signify our resolve to let the political remedy/process of impeachment run its due course -- unfettered by political expediency, red-herring cowardice, or other distractions. We owe this priority of resolve to the memory of our National Founders, many of whom were Virginians.

By placing Bush-Cheney impeachment on VIRGINIA's table, members of the General Assembly thus can help their Congressional counterparts (1) demand and assure total honesty and transparency of official conduct, (2) adhere fully to the rule of law, and (3) unequivocally support and protect our civil liberty.

TEXT OF PETITION:

WHEREAS, Va. Del. David Englin himself recently has opined (in an e-mail message to one of his constituents) that the Bush administration's approach to governance "represents the worst of American leadership and may well include impeachable offenses";

WHEREAS, one or more recent public-opinion polls show that as much as 51 percent of the U. S. adult population favors impeaching Bush-Cheney;

WHEREAS, the nation's growing impeachment movement is being reflected in the several state legislatures already called upon to introduce Bush-Cheney impeachment resolutions; and

WHEREAS, the current public record -- as exemplified by the recent book by former federal prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega ("United States v. George W. Bush, et al.") -- documents most of the Bush-Cheney impeachable offenses (ranging from conspiracy to defraud Congress and the public -- as to the lead-up to the 2003 U. S-led invasion of Iraq -- to authorizing of a formerly secret program for warrantless eavesdropping upon certain Americans' electronic communications) --

We, the undersigned persons, hereby call upon all members of the Virginia General Assembly to support that body's prompt introduction of a Bush-Cheney impeachment resolution -- and to formally transmit said resolution to appropriate members of Congress as soon as possible.
