Impeachment Question

I think on principle impeachment is important. We have never seen lawlessness and defiance of the Constitution like this. It is important to make the statement that leaders cannot do this,
But a question: What happens if the House impeaches and enough Republicans in the Senate block conviction. Wouldn’t that mean that Bush is excused and is free to continue on as he pleases? Does it set a very dangerous precedent?

  1. I am not sure of the answers to either question. The precedent might be dangerous. However, not doing it is ever more dangerous — the precedent is set that the ‘Publican machine can do whatever it wishes — even to the point of overthrowing our government, and everyone will be too chicken to oppose them.
    Idiots will interpret the failure to convict however they choose, such as idiots have twisted Darwinism to produce Social Darwinism — or idiots have used the First Amendment to deny others their First-Amendment rights — or idiots have used a warranty to breach the warranty. There’s no reason to let the idiots control us. The more intelligent will recognize the reason for failure to convict.
    The importance of impeachment is that it gets the evidence and puts the ‘Publican atrocities in the public view. It may generate an immediate Constitutional crisis where the threat is immediately obvious — as opposed to the wearing away of our liberties that can always be whitewashed away as natural security.
    An attempted impeachment now will preempt the otherwise inevitable attack on Democrats this fall, that will build toward the 2008 election.
    This year might be the only opportunity we have to impeach. In 2008, control of Congress might return to the ‘Publicans, and a new ‘Publican President might be elected — using various tactics to destroy the Democratic vote, of course — hackable voting machines, removing voters from the rolls, police intimidation of black voters, etc.
