At 9 pm New Jersey time, Tuesday, October 23rd, in a nationwide phone call to Progressive Democrats of America, New Jersey Impeach Groups and other impeach organizers, presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich announced he will go before the U.S. House of Representatives in a point of personal privilege to force the impeachment of Dick Cheney. Mr. Kucinich stated he will bring impeachment forward next week on November 6th. Town hall meetings will be held across the country, where citizens gather to organize a massive phone campaign to contact all members of the U.S. House of Representatives to tell them to support Mr. Kucinich’s motion to save our country by impeaching Bush and Cheney for their violations of the constitution and their many criminal actions.

VIDEO: Republicans support impeachment too:
How Dennis’ motion to bring H.R. 333 to the floor will work: Dennis will rise and ask that the bill on the impeachment of Cheney be brought to the floor on a point of “privilege,” which is every congressmember’s right on important matters. Someone will rise and motion for a vote that the bill be “tabled” – killed – THIS IS THE VOTE. If enough congressmembers vote against the motion to “table” it, Dennis will speak and it must go forward for debate . NOW is the time to tell your congressmember you want the vote against “tabling” the bill, so it can go forward.
Town hall meetings are happening across the country to demonstrate that we want the vote against “tabling” the bill , to make sure the bill goes forward. Here’s an easy-link to email, and see above for toll-free phone numbers to call your Congressmember in Washington:
Easy online tool for emailing your local newspapers:
Print out the literature (below) which gives the town hall meeting focus, and serve its educational purpose. Put these out on your literature table. The upshot of the meeting should be an agreement by verbal acclaim that the citizens here tonight direct their congressmember to co-sponsor and support H.Res.333, the Resolution to begin impeachment proceedings against Vice President Richard Cheney, or something to that effect, yea or nay. You can also note “passed, with reservations by some” if people don’t agree with all the articles of impeachment but agree with most of them.
Print-out the Synopsis of House Resolution 333
We recommend that you print out and make copies of the following pieces of literature, which contain the basic, open-and-shut case against the administration, as well as talking points. Put them on your literature table and get them to your newspapers along with the basic press release.

Talking Points for the “Unconverted”
Be sure someone brings a camcorder to the town meeting so you and we can post parts on YouTube and elsewhere on the world wide web. The Northeast Impeachment Coalition is available for assistance in this. If you do it yourself, PLEASE BE SURE TO SEND THE LINK to ALL your contacts! For us, send to email@example.com. When you visit your congressmember be sure to get that on a camcorder too. See How to Put Your Congressmember on YouTube
