To the editor:
This week, Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, in a display of heroic courage and true patriotism, delivered in the U.S. House of Representatives a reading of 35 articles of impeachment against President Bush.
In the several days since Kucinich's reading of those charges, the Journal-World has not reported a single word on the subject. That is disturbing. The public is not being duly informed about this matter of huge national importance.
All citizens who are concerned about the very costly and deadly consequences of President Bush's dishonest, wrongful and illegal behaviors in office should be clamoring in offering of backing and support to Rep. Kucinich and other sponsors of the proposed impeachment process.
President Bush has consistently acted as if he is accountable to no one for his actions. That must change, and it is not too late to bring justice. Accountability must also be required of members of the House of Representatives who shirk their sworn duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution and to defend the country and its citizens from harm when there is evidence of egregious behavior by a sitting president.
Unfortunately, most members of both houses of Congress who could make a difference seem to lack the courage and a spine that is sufficient to assume any individual stance that might be viewed as unpopular by their peers or constituents. They need to hear from us.
