The People's Media
It's my firm conviction that if Kerry were President right now the Republicans and the media would be howling for his impeachment, probably over missing office supplies. "Paperclip-gate" would be all over the news. Anyone remember "Whitewater"? Okay, maybe lying us into a war where thousands are dying, draining the national treasury of every last drop, sanctioning torture, and illegally spying on our citizens doesn't quite measure up to an iffy real estate deal and diddling of an intern, but I believe people should at least be aware of the concept of impeaching this president. As it turns out, the framers of the constitution saw fit that I, or any other U.S. citizen, should be able to express this. Freely. Remember, if you feel your country or its democracy is in danger, speaking out is not only your right, it's your goddam duty as a citizen. That's why I can do what I do without fear of getting arrested for it. That's why you can too.
These signs went up yesterday in SF and the East Bay. I'll be doing more today.
