Hear, Hear: "History Will Hold Us Complicit If We Don't Impeach"

Ill: The Wizard of Whimsy
Tilting Toward Tyranny in America, & How to Fix It Constitutionally
Some Democrats (centrists & neo-con lites) have fallen under a spell of mass amnesia, or perhaps perceive themselves the defenders of an imaginary mass American Uniparty, it seems, when it comes to remedying wrongs that our Founders foresaw~ fresh from the trenches & fights with King George as they were. Politics will always tend toward authoritarianism, tyranny, & covert campaigns to cover it up. That's why they gave us the gift of impeachment.
The "can't we all just get along" route works only if one assumes one is dealing with reasonable persons, & your Demon would argue that's not the case with by-hook-or-crook-or propaganda power-at-any-cost Neocons. They've been very bold about it, after all, & we who still believe in democracy should push back with equal force. Else "democracy" be perverted into something unrecognizable ~ say, a campaign slogan for a war on terra.
Watch Representative Robert Wexler's speech about the support for impeachment (despite all the attempts to keep it off the table) & the fact that history has taught us (Watergate), that we really can't expect to learn the full extent of what really happened until we commit to investigate. Seems we have plenty of preliminary evidence to suspect some really rotten stuff at the core:
Read the WaPo's series on Dick Cheney, and the radical changes to the office of Vice President under him:
Watch the PBS Frontline documentary The Dark Side online. "Amid revelations about faulty prewar intelligence and a scandal surrounding the indictment of the vice president's chief of staff and presidential adviser, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, FRONTLINE goes behind the headlines to investigate the internal war that was waged between the intelligence community and Richard Bruce Cheney, the most powerful vice president in the nation's history."
