41 Cents for Cheney Impeachment ... RIGHT NOW

We're often sent emails or read requests on the web to sign onto some petition to add your voice to some cause or another. It's never clear just how much impact your actions will have on each of these.

Here is something specific and timely that you can do with the potential for tremendous impact.

As you may know, there is an impeachment resolution on the floor in the House of Representatives, hanging on but needing Nancy Pelosi's support to really move forward. This resolution calls for the impeachment of Dick Cheney, who is in my opinion the true criminal of the current administration. The list of impeachable offenses is tremendous, and exposing his actions will start to put the brakes on this administration like nothing else can.

Pelosi has said that if she receives, before Thanksgiving, 10,000 handwritten letters supporting the current resolution (HR 333) to impeach Dick Cheney, she will proceed with it.

This is absolutely the best chance that impeachment has ever had. And with Thanksgiving just a few days away, it is vitally important that we act quickly.

I just popped a greeting card in the mail with "I support House Resolution 333 to impeach Dick Cheney" scribbled on it. You might want to make your case in more detail, or less. But flooding Pelosi's office with letters is of vital importance.

Won't you take just a few moments and 41 cents' in postage, and pop a quick request in the mail right now?

Cindy Sheehan is collecting the letters, and will count them and drop them off at Pelosi's ofice (without opening the letters). Send them to her at this address:
