Dear Congressmen

Dear Congressman,

I write to you because of the considerable influence you have in this Congress. I am dismayed by your current refusal to investigate and confront, via Impeachment, the violators of our Constitution.

With the introduction of articles of impeachment by Congressman Kucinich on Tuesday, November 6, 2007, you are presented with an historic opportunity to act on your oath to defend the Constitution. I demand you seize this opportunity.

Support the resolution calling for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney that is now awaiting action in the Judiciary Committee. Heed the call from a member of the committee, Congressman Robert Wexler of Florida:

"The American people are served well with a legitimate and thorough impeachment inquiry. I will urge the Judiciary Committee to schedule impeachment hearings immediately and not let this issue languish as it has over the last six months. Only through hearings can we begin to correct the abuses of Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration; and, if it is determined in these hearings that Vice President Cheney has committed High Crimes and Misdemeanors, he should be impeached and removed from office. It is time for Congress to expose the multitude of misdeeds of the Administration, and I am hopeful that the Judiciary Committee will expeditiously begin an investigation of this matter."

Exposure of the Vice President's many misdeeds will enlighten others to the damage that is being done in our name, and to our Constitution, creating a groundswell that may very well lead to enough votes in the Senate to impeach. By opening hearings in the House you begin that process, moving our nation out from under the cloud of this administration,

Should you stop Kucinich’s resolution in committee, you will fail your own oath of office: "To defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic." With such precedent, you will allow this current administration - and any future White House - to commit additional high crimes and misdemeanors without consequence.

The remedy to the abuses of the Bush administration is in the Constitution. The Congress has the power to impeach the Vice President, and the President - Use It! Failure to act is irresponsible and unacceptable.

The American people will be left with few peaceful actions to pursue justice in this land and peace abroad as we were in the Vietnam Era. Do we have to return to those days before you are willing to do that which is simply right and just, because we will not stop and we will not be denied justice?

Every member of the House must stand for reelection in 2008 and I will personally place this issue above any loyalty of party. I will support all who support the process of at least initiating the necessary investigations and will oppose all who do not.

I extend my hand of support here and now to those members of the House who have already demonstrated their personal integrity in their support of H. Res 333 and encourage them to continue their advocacy of justice.

This is my oath and I will be faithful to it.
