impeach for peace

thought this was worthy of a seperate thread.

 

Impeach for Peace, a Minnesota-based impeachment group, has researched a method for impeaching the president using a little known and rarely used part of the Rules of the House of Representatives ("Jefferson’s Manual"). This document actually empowers individual citizens to initiate the impeachment process themselves.

 

 

"Jefferson's Manual" is an interpretive guide to parliamentary procedure, and is included (along with the Constitution) in the bound volumes of the Rules of the House of Representatives. The section covering impeachment lists the acceptable vehicles for bringing impeachment motions to the floor of the House.

 

Before the House Judiciary Committee can put together the Articles of Impeachment, someone must initiate the impeachment procedure. Most often, this occurs when members of the House pass a resolution. Another method outlined in the manual, however, is for individual citizens to submit a memorial for impeachment.

 

After learning this information, Minnesotan and Impeach for Peace member (Jodin Morey) found precedent in an 1826 memorial by Luke Edward Lawless which had been successful in initiating the impeachment of Federal Judge James H. Peck. Impeach for Peace then used this as a template for their "Do-It-Yourself Impeachment." Now any citizen can download the DIY Impeachment Memorial and submit it, making it possible for Americans to do what our representatives have been unwilling to do. The idea is for so many people to submit the Memorial that it cannot be ignored.

Feel free to download it, print out TWO copies, fill in your relevant information in the blanks (name, State, etc.), and send in two letters today (One to the Speaker of the House, and the other to John Conyers of the House Judiciary).

Hold on to the other copy of the two letters until October 12th when we're having everyone send them in.

That's right — to make a big impact, we're having everyone send it in on the same date. We hope to flood the Judiciary Committee and John Conyers office with sacks of mail and cause a newsworthy event to further pressure the Congress to act on the memorials. Although, it's important to keep in mind that in the 1826 precedent, impeachment resulted as a result of a single memorial. Yours might be the one.

my only question is... if he gets removed from office' date=' is the guy who takes his place going to be any better?[/quote']

 

well, maybe not. what i would hope this would do is put

the "fear of hell" into poltiicians.

 

what it might do is install another businessman/politico

into office.

it's an issue of straight Presidential selection... if the Pres cant perform then it's the Vice-Pres and so on.

 

Chances for an actual impeachment are almost nil. No matter what though, all this, or even the traditional process, can do is get an impeachment investigation happening. After 6 months or so there will be an initial hearing.

 

So, even if the process started on Oct. 12 then it would be April 12th or so before the first hearing. Then they would decide wether to continue the investigation, so another 6 months and then Bush would only have 1 year left in office.

 

I doubt the taxpayers are going to rise up and support the kind of spending that happened during the last years of the Clinton Admin. Too much cost for ZERO return.

 

If they coulda figured this out in 2001 though...
