    These days, there appears to be growing support for the premature departure of the current administration. As towns and localities pass their own impeachment resolutions, public opinion polls show that substantial numbers of Americans are in favor of impeachment for Bush and Cheney.

    Change in this country occurs only through movements. Frederick Douglass said that, "power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." Similarly, John Pilger said that, "true democracy is never handed down by elites. It is always fought for and struggled for." Civil rights, voting rights for African Americans, women's suffrage and reproductive rights all came about because people were firm and resolute about their demands, and mobilized at the grassroots level in order to force the politicians to take action.
