To Ms. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House
US House of Representatives
Washington, D.C.

Dear Ms. Pelosi (for now on I am addressing all individuals as Ms. or Mr., as the use of titles is anti-democratic):

We have implored you to begin impeachment proceedings against both the US president and the vice president. You have not budged from your position, declaring that impeachment is off the table, even though surveys show more Americans are for than against it. In the meantime, incredible abuses are being perpetrated on the American people, using the excuse of a virtually non-existent "terrorist threat."

It appears that you must be taking your marching orders from the president or his club of thugs. Even Bill Clinton was impeached for virtually nothing. But Bush and Cheney commit horrendous crimes, spit in the face of the American people, and YOU just let it go down. We should thank you for this? I don't think so.

Right now, there are 22 detainees in Guantanamo who are being force-fed. This is a disgrace. At least one medical commentator states unequivocally that this is against medical ethics. It is certainly torture.

I hope you can prove that you are not one of the gang who have terrorized this country in the name of fake terrorism, destroyed the framework of human rights in this country and abroad, and who continue to act with total contempt for the average American. There's still time for you to change your mind, to pursue impeachment aggressively and save this country.

Please support Dennis Kucinich's bill to impeach Richard Cheney, the vice president.

Please do NOT support any legislation that will further erode the rights of Americans for the sake of a bogus terrorist threat.

Thank you for doing everything in your power to stop the US occupation of Iraq. Please support Dennis Kucinich's peace plan for Iraq.

Kindest regards,

Peter Duveen
