Carl Sheeler for Senate

Carl Sheeler dropped by and left a comment re this post:
"Thank you for sharing this... the REAL issue is not "W" or his impeachment as to bring awareness to the public that our Constitution is eroded everytime the Executive Branch exceeds its executive authority.

There are some who believe that pushing the issue would galvanize the GOP base. I'd argue pushing the issue would galvanize the Democratic and progressive base.

It would put the GOP on the defensive for a change and individual Congressmen and women would have to decide whether backing up "W" is worth their hides in a reelection year.

The point is that our Constitution defines what we are as Americans and was drafted to protect the weak and those in the minority.

It was not popular when the first effort to provide rights to slaves or women was pursued, but some brave souls went against prevailing wisdom to do the right thing.

It is our turn this century to decide to defend what this living document means and hold others accountable or choose to expend hours weekly to do little more than apply words with no action."
I'm with Carl. Drop by his place and do what you can to help.

We are already seeing repug congresscritters running away from the preznit. We need to hang that albatross around their neck - and/or watch them repudiate everything the egadministration stands for.

I love what Carl Sheelar says. I wish all Dem candidates in this midterm would stand for Congress' duty to protect the Constitution from executvie abuse.

W has been actively subverting the Consitution and one party rule has brought about a stealth overthrow of our gov't from one with three co-equal branches to one with a Demander-In-Chief and two rubber stamp branches, the one that chose W in the first place and the one that makes his crimes legal, ex post facto. What a farce.
