High Crimes and Misdemeaners

The Resolution presented by Tequesta , Florida Councilman Basil Dalack, calling for the immediate withdrawl of U.S. troops from Iraq, and the Impeachment of Bush and Cheney, and the trial and prosecution of Bush and Cheney for war crimes, are completely valid and covered in detail in a document called the United States Constitution.
In Article II , (the Executive Branch), section 4 , it states ; The President, Vice President, and all Civil Officers of the United States,
shall be removed from office on Impeachment For, and Conviction of,
Treason , Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.
If there is any doubt as to the blatant violation of the rule of law, both Constitutional and International , there can clearly be no defense for Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, in their role as war criminals, and war profiteers after three years, (happy anniversary ), of chaos and mayhem in Iraq.
Furthermore, on March 13, 2006 , Senator Russ Feingold , introduced a resolution to Censure Bush for his role in approving the illegal wire-tapping of American Citizens by the N.S.A.
Censuring is a step short of Impeachment, and is meant to imply guilt without formally passing a law or cutting funds.
All members of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, both Democrats and Republicans ,must present a bill and vote on that bill to stop funding the war in Iraq, and immediatly withdrawl the troops from Iraq.
Then, they must draft a Resolution ,(similar to Mr. Dalack's Resolution ) for Impeachment proceedings.
Until Congress steps up and accepts it's Constitutional responsibilities, it will be up to people like Basil Dalack ,and hundreds of other Councilmen throughout this Nation , to carry on the rich traditions of a Democratic Republic , by holding those whom we have put in power, accountable.
