One of the reasons that Impeachophobia is so persistent is the ability of people to carry on in willful ignorance -- as though "all is well" and that winning the next election will solve all problems. Injecting a bit of reality into this delusion can go a long way toward curing Impeachophobia and promoting impeachment.
Polls show that 80% of rank and file Democrats support impeachment...
...despite their DC "leadership's" decision to remain the firewall against accountability for the war criminal regime. So, public demands for impeachment at "business as usual" campaign events are usually met with vocal approval from the event attendees.
There are many types of campaign events that you can "crash" with a demand for impeachment. And since the purpose is simply to point out the disgraceful "elephant in the living room," it's something you can do alone or with a few friends -- no "show of numbers" is really necessary.
Here are some suggestions for how and when to "crash the party."
- Target any events that include "leadership" officials. They often attend local fundraisers to meet and greet with "local money."
- If you will be attending an event, you can bring the Talking Impeachment QuickGuide to distribute discretely to attendees.
- Ask a direct question about impeachment if the opportunity is given. Particularly if you get a shot at Pelosi, Conyers, Reid, or even Candidate Obama himself:
For example, "Given that torture and other Geneva violations are ongoing at Guantanamo. And that failure to stop such ongoing violations is in itself a war crime. Are you proud of your position on impeachment?
Or for the Obama campaign. "Mr. Obama: Since you refuse to confront this war criminal regime with impeachment, do you still maintain that you "don't do cowering?"
- Even if there is no formal Q&A, you can confront the candidate or other officials with a direct question. Be sure to be heard by those nearby -- or by media if possible.
- Any "private" fundraising events can be picketed at the entrance to the venue. Be sure to have the Talking Impeachment QuickGuide handy to pass out to attendees. Try to be visible to any media that is covering the event.
