Party Calls for Bush Impeachment

Boulder, CO - At its October 25, 2003 National Committee meeting, the America First Party passed a resolution calling for the impeachment and removal from office of President Bush for taking our Nation to war without proper constitutional authority. This resolution is in keeping with ones passed at the 2002 Convention and in April of this year.

National Chairman John Francis described the party's action: "Unlike Republicans and Democrats, the America First Party believes that the Constitution is the foundation of freedom and good government which we hold so dear. That same Constitution declares that only Congress -- not the President -- may declare war. When President Bush violated his oath of office, and started his war in Iraq, he shredded our Constitution, he trampled upon the very basis of our liberty. The President's betrayal of fundamental principles of American government renders him unfit to hold the office to which he was elected."

The America First Party opposes the war in Iraq, because the regime of Saddam Hussein, brutal and evil though it was, nevertheless did not threaten the people of the United States or their interests.

National Press Secretary Romelle Winters added, "With our own borders unsecured, our United States Armed Forces continue to die policing the streets of Iraq. It is now clear the President's judgment ignores the Constitution, the best interests of our Nation, and the best interests of our troops. It is time to follow President Washington's advice to stay out of the affairs of other nations unless our Nation is threatened. It is time for Congress to do its duty."

The Resolution states in part: "We demand that no actions be taken that would endanger the lives and well being of our troops currently involved in combat; we demand that Congress refuse to fund preemptive wars of colonial conquest; we demand that our government refocus its national security efforts on securing our ports and our borders to prevent future terrorist attacks; and we demand that Congress immediately impeach the President and remove him from office for waging war without constitutional authority."

The entire text of the Resolution Calling for Impeachment of the President is attached to this release, and may also be read on the America First Party web site at "http://americafirstparty.org/impeach.html".

 

 

RESOLUTION CALLING FOR IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Whereas, The America First National Committee has adjudged the War Against Iraq to be an unnecessary, improper, illegal, unconstitutional, and immoral misuse of the power and might of the United States Armed Forces and the brave men and women who have volunteered to serve as protectors and defenders of the United States of America and her people; and,

Whereas, The America First National Committee has adjudged the War Against Iraq sets a dangerous precedent for our nation that must be resisted and never allowed to happen again; and,

Whereas, It is only through assuring that the brave fighting men and women of the United States Armed Forces are not misused that we can best support their mission to protect and defend the United States of America;

Now Therefore Be It Resolved by the America First National Committee on this 25th day of October, in the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Three:

That We demand that no actions be taken that would endanger the lives and well being of our troops currently involved in combat; and,

That We call upon the Joint Chiefs of Staff to refuse orders they know to be immoral and illegal as required by the Uniform Code of Military Justice; and,

That We demand that Congress refuse to fund preemptive wars of colonial conquest; and,

That We demand that our government refocus its national security efforts on securing our ports and our borders to prevent future terrorist attacks; and,

That We demand that Congress immediately impeach the President and remove him from office for waging war without constitutional authority; and,

That We pledge to work for the replacement of every member of Congress who aids, abets, or shields the President in these impeachable offenses.
