Election 2016: Keith Ellison: ‘I would love to see Elizabeth Warren’ run
Yes, we have our share of moonbats in the red state of North Carolina, too:
CHAPEL HILL – President Bush should be impeached, Town Council members unanimously decided Monday night.
The vote was the local body’s latest foray into national politics. A local Republican dismissed it as a “move of desperation.”
Council members supported a petition from the grass-roots Elders for Peace group, which laid out three charges to justify impeachment:
* Bush “lied to Congress and the American people to launch an illegal war of aggression”;
* Bush violated human rights by torturing prisoners at home and abroad and detaining suspects with no due process;
* Bush “unleashed a massive unconstitutional wiretap and spying operation against the people of the United States.”
“I think this compels us — you and all thinking people in the United States — to move for impeachment,” said Nancy Elkins, an Elders for Peace member. “If we don’t, what are future citizens of our country going to think we were doing when we were allowing all of this?”
With little discussion, the council passed a resolution that said, in part, that Bush “‘has acted contrary to law, and violated his oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States.”
They had also passed a resolution in October calling for an end to the war in Iraq. And previously they had lodged a protest resolution against the war before it was launched in 2003.
Council member Mark Kleinschmidt thanked the group Monday for “so eloquently distilling what so many people in our community think.”
I think the town council of Chapel Hill (I should note – even though it’s obvious – that Chapel Hill and the surrounding areas are solidly liberal) should pay more attention to what’s going on in our own back yard, oh like the charges of massive corruption that have been alleged against NC House Democratic Speaker Jim Black and some “associates” of his (some of whom also serve in state government elected positions).
Instead, they choose to ignore it and engage in a ‘symbolic’ vote against the President that holds no weight with anyone outside of the Democratic base in Chapel Hill. Yet another instance of Red Meat Democrats in action.
