A Doubt About Ron Paul

I'm concerned to hear that he did not vote to Impeach Cheney last week. I would have preferred that he take that route, but he appears to have "played it safe" in the way that politicians do. I wondered how far he would take it.

here's the story The Pen told
The Pen is at <democracy@peaceteam.net>

On Nov. 6, 2007, Dennis Kucinich brought a privileged resolution
calling for the impeachment of Vice President Cheney, based on just a couple of Cheney's constitutional high crimes. And for two hours the House of Representatives was tied up in knots trying to figure out how to try to shut him up.

In their contempt for the people, the Republicans committed the
colossal tactical blunder of trying to mock the momentous occasion. When the Democratic so-called leadership tried to table the Kucinich resolution, as we expected them to do, the Republican big shots suddenly directed their underlings to change their votes, to start voting AGAINST the motion to table, thereby forcing the very vote Kucinich sought.

The entire House of Representatives was thrown into a turmoil. It was high drama as the motion to table suddenly was being rejected numerically, with Republican help. The scheduled 15 minute vote extended into two hours, with nobody in a leadership position knowing how to deal with the crisis of one man standing up and speaking the truth. And did you hear about this incredible drama on your cable TV? No you did not.

Now the defeatists out there, and we know they are out there, will
try to tell you that because the impeachment resolution was
ultimately sent to the Judiciary Committee that nothing more will
happen. That's like saying because the indictment was given to a
judge and a prosecutor, that will be the end of it. But whatever the vain intent of certain so-called Congressional leaders, the Judiciary Committee is exactly where we want the resolution, for that is where the actual impeachment articles must emerge from.

Look at what's actually happening, and not what the right wing
spinners are trying to tell you is happening. Progressive talk
personalities are calling for action all over the dial. They are
giving out toll free congressional phone numbers and calling on their listeners to now put real pressure on the Judiciary Committee. This is happening only because your voices forced the issue in the first place, by calling those shows and talking about impeachment and the necessity for it.

Look at what's actually happening. Members of the House are being forced to justify why they have not yet acted to defend and protect the Constitution. And their lame and pathetic excuses are exposing just how poorly represented the people of the United States are. More people are realizing that their voices do count, and that Congress has no answer to defend their failure to do their sacred constitutional duty.

It is only because of the impeachment movement that attention is
being focused on Cheney's insane fixation on bombing Iran and
starting the last World War of them all. It is only your voices that
can stop the secret march to Armageddon, as they make up new lies to sucker the American people into yet another, and even more monumental, military debacle.
