Go ahead. I dare ya!

There are arguments and arguments out there about why Congress won’t impeach Bush and there’s a growing body of people calling for impeachment. I know all the arguments from Congress: “impeachment would distract from the Democratic legislative agenda and provoke an electoral backlash”. 

The truth is: they don’t have grounds for impeachment so, instead, they’ve embarked upon a course of undermining the president at every turn. They’ve used misrepresentations of facts, half-truths, and outright lies to effectively neutralize him, his cabinet, and all others who fall under his command. The only goal of these actions are the self-aggrandizement of their political party. They have no concern for the United States; none whatsoever. They would rather endanger the entire country instead of supporting the opposition party in its endeavors to keep us as safe as possible in a world gone militant.

In the same article :

And now, with the Administration’s troubles mounting, they’re preparing to tell Pelosi that America and the world cannot wait until January 20, 2009, to put an end to Bush’s reign of error. When Pelosi arrives at the California Democratic Convention in San Diego on April 28–the same day that activists nationwide will rally for presidential accountability–she’ll find on the agenda a resolution that declares that the actions of President Bush and Vice President Cheney “warrant impeachment and trial, and removal from office.” Delegates are expected to endorse the measure.

I, for one, hope they try it. I, for one, want to hear the whole truth. I, for one, want to see the egg on the faces such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, and others. No, they are better served by the MSM allowing their half-truths and outright lies to continue undermining the office of the presidency. When they do this, I want to see the documentation where the Democratic Party moved to cause failure of every measure put forward to defend the United States, including the now infamous Memo of the Democrats’ strategy in effectively undermining the president.

Perhaps, if they had put as much energy into working for the nation instead of undermining it… who knows wht might have and could happen?

Since Congress is so concerned with numbers and manipulate them to prove their points, I thought I manipulate a few of my own.

The price of not going to war (in billions of dollars) from 9/11/01 for NYC:

  • Economic loss to New York in month following the attacks    $105
  • Estimated cost of cleanup      $0.6
  • Total FEMA money spent on the emergency       $0.97
  • Estimated amount donated to 9/11 charities     $ 1.4
  • Estimated amount of insurance paid worldwide related to 9/11     $40.2
  • Estimated amount of money needed to overhaul lower-Manhattan subways          $7.5
  • Amount of money recently granted by U.S. government to overhaul lower-Manhattan subways       $4.55

Total           $160,220,000,000

Time Frame: 102 minutes. Cost per minute: $1,570,784,313.73.


The War on Terror

Cost:  $725,000,000,000

Time Frame: 1825 days or 525600  minutes. Cost per minute: $1,379,375.95.

The price of not going to war is 1000+ times more costly than going to war. Do the math yourself and you’ll see.

Congress is “concerned” with peanut storage, spinach farmers, education(?), highminded building projects, and amnesty for illegal aliens. Why build anything when the terrorist will destroy it easily with the “Democratic” way of foreign policy?

The war on terror has been going on a long time… many decades, in fact. Bush just named it is all. We cannot live in a vacuum or a “feel good” bubble. The world doesn’t work that way. Congress uses the excuse that nothing that large has happened since 9/11/01 while ignoring the fact that our inattention to those who want to destroy us allowed 9/11 to happen. Can we really afford to go back to pre-9/11 inattention, which is Congress’ goal?
