    They would never agree to either.  And if the '06 election goes our way, then impeachment could possibly pass the House.  My point is that a formal impeachment resolution, even if it has no chance of passing, will put this and future presidents on notice.  And maybe they will think twice about acting as if they were above the law.

    Impeach the bastard.

    •  Which is precisely why (none)
      Congressman Conyers should not only call into focus his new report on Iraq manipulations (galore) but he should also (in his other hand, so to speak) hold up his Ohio '04 elections report.

      The Dems have a full-court-press coming at them and there are a great many "issues" that they need to fight.

      They have GOT to eat their "wheaties", get their sleep, and FIGHT each and every single day from here until the "tide" changes.  Otherwise, I think these repubs will steamroll right over us.

      They haven't seemed to be slowed very much at all thus far, and a TON of fit has hit the shan.  They have a goal in mind and they won't stop unless forced. (my opinion/fear)

      Election Integrity has to be a top priority, otherwise '06 will just be "manipulated" just like every election since '00.

    •  We must take back the House (none)
      50 State Strategy Taking the House puts the necessary force behind holding them accountable for all that we know and for all that we learn in the future.  There is more that we do not know.  I am running against Mike Pence in Indiana's 6th, and we are planning an extensive grass roots effort, supplemented by a frugal advertising campaign including one direct mail piece.  We need to raise $185,00 for the ad campaign.  I need 18,500 people to donate 10.00
      Consider helping put me in place to help check and balance this unbelievable Neo Con regime.
      Go to Barry Welsh for more information and to contribute through Act Blue.  Thanks for reading this and supporting Congressman Conyers.

        We need to focus an awful lot of attention on the Demon Diebold machines before 2006.  That work should be going on NOW!!!
      •  one direct mail piece? (none)
        One??
        That scares me!
        Having worked in the political arena as a consultant and graphic artist for political literature, a one piece direct mail campaign stands a good chance of failing.

        You cannot target with one piece. it's cost ineffective and will not target people's hot buttons enough to get them to vote.

        People vote when they think they are going to lose something.

        The majority of people do not vote for, but vote against. ( ex. " I voted against that guy cause he wants to take away my guns!")

        How do the republicans win? by targeting every demographic out there. And this is how they do it:

        Got old white people? scare em with social security and perscription drugs.

        Got african Americans? Scare em with lack of education advantages and civil rights and jobs.

        got soccer moms? scare em with security and education

        got nascar dads? scare em with gun control.

        got middle class joes? scare em with jobs and security

        Wrap all that under the morals and values umbrella and you have the GOP strategy.

        In a single campaign for a city of 100,000 over 700,000 peices go out.

        While I am not saying to abandon tv and radio ads, keep in mind direct mail stays with the voter longer. With tv and radio, to receive the message, the target has to have the tv and radio on at just the right time.

        A campaign with limited funds is better served by spending more in direct mail (it's inexpensive if you look around and get estimates) and you can target your constituents more accurately. You can also use direct mail as a vehicle for absentee voting. Half the piece is the ad for the candidate, the other for the form to fill out.

        You will hear conflicting opinions and strategies from people. Some will object to my methods, andthat's ok. Actions and results speak louder than words and I have a winning record of 90 % candidates elected from school boards to city council to mayor to governor to congressmen and senators.

        Think very carefully before you spend your limited funds. You can get freelance graphic artists to do your graphics for reasonable prices.

        We have no future because our present is too volatile. We only have risk management. The spinning of the given moments scenario. Pattern Recognition. ~W. Gibson
