To impeach or not to impeach, that is the question. Listen to what some people think in regards to the impeachment of President Bush and/or Vice President Cheney.
Now I know that newly chosen Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has stated that "impeachment is off the table". My question is why should it be 'off the table'? Have crimes not been committed by the President and Vice-President? Has the statute of limitations run out on those crimes? More importantly, if these crimes are allowed to go unpunished, what is to prevent a future President from committing even greater crimes without fear of being held responsible?
An example must be set--that no President is above the law or the constraints placed upon him/her by the Constitution. Otherwise we no longer have a free democratic system of government, but a dictatorship ruled by one person, unanswerable to no one but him/herself.
I say if that table is too small too accommodate impeachment, maybe it's time we got a larger table!
And think of this, Speaker Pelosi : As third in line of succession, if we impeach and remove from office both Bush and Cheney, you will be the next President of the United States!
Sounds like a pretty good incentive to me !
