Calls for Bush’s Impeachment - From the RIGHT!



”I. George W. Bush, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Those were the word spoken by President Bush at his Inauguration in 2001, and again in 2005. As President, Bush is expected to uphold the laws of the United States. For the most part, he has fulfilled that duty. However, he has not performed so well in all areas. For example, Bush has done a very poor job at protecting our borders – particularly the Mexican border.

Each year, approximately one million people attempt to illegally cross the Mexican border into the United States – and many of them are successful. Most are decent people who come looking for work. Some are not. Regardless, illegal immigration brings with it many problems for Americans to deal with (joblessness, crime, and a disintegration of our culture) – not to mention the trafficking of drugs and of humans. Illegal immigrants also place an undue burden on our medical, judicial and law enforcement systems. In addition, there is evidence that al Quaeda operatives have also crossed the border and may have brought nuclear weapons to be detonated in American cities.

In response, Governor’s of some border states (Arizona, California & New Mexico) have declared states of emergency. President Bush has responded by revealing his intentions to introduce a worker amnesty program – a program which essentially rewards illegal immigrants and does absolutely nothing to safeguard the border.

Why would Bush intentionally neglect his sworn duty to safeguard the border? It appears that the REAL powers that be (i.e. corporations, not the President) want it that way. And Bush seems more than happy to concede.

Corporate proponents of the President’s border policy defend their stance by duping us into believing that the Mexicans are “doing the kind of jobs that Americans don’t want to do”. But anyone with half a mind knows that it is not true. Find a man or woman who needs a job and ask them if they would be willing to take one of the jobs currently granted to an illegal alien.

Truth be told, corporations support the “open border” policy because it is a source of cheap labor for them. They can exploit the migrant workers. They pay them substantially less, and they offer them little or no benefits. It is you, the tax payer, that absorbs these costs. You may not be able to afford your own health care insurance, but you are paying for theirs. In addition, you are paying their social costs – schools, courts, prisons, etc.

Due to his pitiful actions in safeguarding our border, some have begun calling for a member in the House to step forward and introduce of bill of impeachment charging President Bush with a willful dereliction of duty. Surprisingly, these calls have come from the RIGHT – from the President’s own base.

Some may argue that it is pointless to pursue such a plan of action. The Republicans control the Congress and it is unlikely that such a bid would succeed.

Perhaps this is true, but as Joseph Farrah and Pat Buchanan point out, this may serve as a kick in the pants for the President, as well as his successor.

For that reason, I think the impeachment idea has some merit!

While I definitely think Bush is far from perfect, I think impeachment is unrealistic and unwarranted. No president has protected our borders. The democrats seemed to have sensed the void because they have been talking borders lately. I can only hope that borders are a big issue next election. It is time to enforce our laws.
