My congressman & both senators are getting a photocopy of the list with a notice, "Things cannot get much worse anyway. If you do not follow this guide, do not expect my vote again. I can go green or libertarian if you cannot uphold The Constitution of the United States of America by removing these criminals."
The book is written as separate essays by various authors on different subjects that could lead to the impeachment of the President. Each of the articles, alone, would stand nicely and be a valuable piece in a magazine. When grouped together, however, there is a repetition of information that slows the book down and makes it tiring to read. Better editing could correct this problem.
A more serious flaw is the promotion of rather abstract theories to use in an impeachment procedure. Voter fraud in 2004, for one, probably happened, but it would be almost impossible to investigate thoroughly and incorporate as an impeachment article. And, while global warming is occurring, I don't think you can impeach a president for lack of action. That would be a policy decision, and if it were an impeachable offense, it will make every president a sitting duck for everyone that doesn't like their particular policies.
Finally, use of arguments such President Bush's campaign in Haiti are flawed. It will be difficult to get an impeachment with traditional charges, let alone on something that most Americans haven't heard about and probably don't care about either. Muddying the water with these items will make impeachment more difficult, and failing to get a conviction a near certainty. In addition, the writings are too "liberal" for most main stream Americans...the same ones who get their news from Fox and their ilk.Read more ›
The chapters are about 20 pages each and the sequencing of topics is also noteworthy. One leads to the next with insightful explorations of the topics and the consciousness or lack of by the current administration.
I have already begun to mail copies to people who can carry this important issue forward. The book is a motivator to get involved. There is too much at stake and the time is too short to wait for someone else to carry the ball.
Other contributers, including one of the editors, are familiar to those who follow the important PRoject Censored series. This book is a great rallying cry for one of those most under-reported events, the swelling movement to impeach this currently seated president. It carefully examines all of the well-known causes, including the voter fraud in both national elections, the flip flopping reasons for war with Iraq, this administrations crimes against humanity internationally, negligence at home including around 9/11 and the willfull criminal negligence leaving our elderly and infirm to die in the rain in New Orleans after having taken on responsibility days before, demonstrating nothing effective had happened to protect us since 9/11. For these and several other reasons the writers find reason to Impeach the President.
If you want a brief and legally sound presentation of the facts, just the facts, go for the Center for Constitutional Rights. But certainly supplement with this more elaborated and longer study which combines impassioned voices like the famous March on Washington forty years ago which is notable now under more dire circumstances only in its absence.
