Petition is to call for the Impeachment of President George W. Bush.
President Bush has lied to the American people and to Congress about weapons of mass destruction and the purported "grave and imminent" threat Iraq posed to the U.S. So far, no weapons of mass destruction have turned up, and the only imminent danger we've seen is the danger of our Soldiers, Sailors and Marines being killed in a country that doesn't want us there.
President George W. Bush, V.P. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld have carried out a preemptive war of aggression, attacking people who did not threaten the United States and killing and maiming thousands. Their actions violate the U.S. Constitution and the U.N. Charter which prevents countries from waging attack on other countries except as an attack of self-defense in response to an imminent threat.
The Bush administration and Attorney General John Ashcroft have treated the Bill of Rights with contempt and have sought to roll back decades of hard won civil rights and rights for working people. This President has claimed for himself the authority to jail citizens and residents of the United States indefinitely, without any charge against them, without trial and without access to a lawyer.
More than 250,000 people have called for the impeachment of George W. Bush at www.votetoimpeach.org This campaign has drafted articles of impeachment for introduction in the US House of Representatives and Congress and the impeachment movement is gaining great momentum in the US. There are also many other campaigns, including www.impeach-bush-now.org, www.impeachbush.tv, and of course, this petition. Lets stop being the sterotypical mindless Americans who believe that the government is always acting in our best interests. If we don't stand up for our rights as Americans, who will?
