To all Democrats running in the November, 2012 election to serve in the House of Representatives of the 113th Congress of the United States of America, I require that you sign onto the following pledge:

I pledge that if I am elected to serve in the 113th Congress of the United States of America and if there is a Democratic majority in the United States House of Representatives, I pledge that I shall do all in my power to move to begin impeachment proceedings against the following justices now serving on the United States Supreme Court: Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Justice Clarence Thomas and Justice Samuel Alito.
Why?

The five to four decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in regard to Florence v. County of Burlington, No. 10-945, on the second day of April in the year Two Thousand Twelve.

Background: In 2005 Albert W. Florence was in the passenger seat of his BMW when a state trooper pulled his wife, April, over for speeding. A records search revealed an outstanding warrant based on an unpaid fine. The records were wrong and Florence was falsely arrested. He was held for a week in jails in two counties, and he was strip-searched twice.

He sued, of course, and the case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

By the way, Florence is black. I wonder if that has anything to do with his arrest and mistreatment -- I wonder if that has anything to do with the decision of the fascist five of the United States Supreme Court.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
