    This may be a stupid question, but I don't care, I just want to know.
    Do we still have the power to impeach a President and if so, does anyone know how it is done?

    the congress has to do it.
    republicans control the congress.
    vote them out in 06 and you might get some action.

    That is correct...the people don't elect a president either...the electoral college does. The US is not the democracy that it advertises and which most Americans believe it to be. However we do have the power to elect congress people (as brother James illustrated), so those who disapprove of the way Bush is destroying the country better show up at the polls next year!

    I don't know how large of a task this is, and since you're more knowledgeale in this area, is that a task to far out of reach? I'm thinking it probably is, but again I have no clue.

    by the 06 election enough white people may have endured enough pain they will be willing to part with some of them republicans.
    the best thing you can do is vote every republican out in 06.

    Okay, so what I'm gathering is we need to be out when the time comes and attempt to vote out congress. Can that we be something we all agree to work towards with an intent to impeach him?
