There are many groups who are calling for the impeachment of George W. Bush. But is this enough? Impeachment, while both warranted and desirable, will certainly take time...and how much damage will be done before that happens?
  • How many lives will be lost, both American and Iraqi?
  • How many more assaults on the environment will take place?
  • How many more cronies will be appointed to key positions that make life and death decisions?
  • How many more wars will be started in the name of terror in an effort to boost Bush's ratings?
  • How many more "enemy combatants" will be rounded up and sent to Gitmo where they will have no rights of Habeas Corpus?
  • How long will it be before anyone who speaks out against the Bush Administration is considerd "enemy combatants"?

We need to be moving with a sense of urgency. It is this sense of urgency that is lacking in most of the dialog regarding the movement to impeach Bush. We need ordinary people from all across the political spectrum--Greens, liberals, progressives, moderates and conservatives-- to come forward and demand that he step down, while we still have the ability to speak out. The World Can't Wait movement expresses this sense of urgency. Here we can join with others who want to demand that Bush step down.
