Group solemnly commends those voting for impeachment.
On this very historic day in America’s history, I am proud to be an American. I am proud of how the American system of government worked this very day. Even though I do not believe that those who voted for one or more articles of impeachment were
enjoying doing so but they did their duty under the Constitution of the United States of America.
I am fortunate to be an American because I was born in Baghdad, Iraq, but legally immigrated with my parents to America in 1969 as a twelve year old boy. For me, April 30, 1976 was one of my most significant days. On that day I became a citizen of the
greatest country in the world, the United States of America.
When I took my “oath of allegiance” to become an American Citizen in part it said:
“I hereby declare, an oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and
defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;...”
I have taken my oath very seriously and was greatly dismayed at President Clinton’s seeming disregard for the rule of law. What I believe makes this country so great is that we are governed by laws and not dictators. It is the duty of our elected
officials to guard us from ever allowing anyone to be above the law, no matter how popular they are perceived to be.
Today, I am proud of those in the U.S. House of Representatives, and I am especially proud of the stability of our great country. I personally applaud each of the members who voted for one or more of the articles of impeachment. They did a brave thing.
Today’s vote was about the best interests of this country. Some believed that the best interest of this country was to retain a “good and popular President”, even if he had lied under oath. Others believed that the best interest of the country was that,
“No one is above the law.”
I have supported the group that has believed that, “No one is above the law.” That is because it is one of the defining things that makes America great. Today, I am proud of those in the U.S. House of Representatives, that said by voting for articles of
impeachment that the President of this great nation must also defend the same Constitution and laws that I swore in my oath of allegiance to defend.
I am also proud of those individuals and organizations who called for the impeachment of the President, because they too believe no one is above the law. I applaud them for all the work they did by calling, writing, faxing, and e-mailing their U.S.
Representative. This vote showed that grassroots Americans who are morality and values based can have an affect on their government and were being heard by their Representatives.
As I myself have previously written (see “It’s all about a lie”), this is not about an affair but about the President lying under oath. I was moved to solemnly call for impeachment after looking at the facts of the case presented by Judge Starr. And I
came to believe that the investigation should have been more expanded after reading the documents prepared by our Honorary National Chairman, Congressman Bill Dannemeyer who served in the U.S. House of Representatives between 1979 and 1992.
Because of this, we at Citizens For A Better America ® invested our time and money to fax and e-mail those documents to the whole Congress including the U.S. Senate. In those documents Congressman Dannemeyer encourages Congressman Hyde to investigate
other impeachable offenses that began before Monica Lewinsky. Those documents are available on our Internet Web Site at: http://home.earthlink.net/~colaco/aa11000.html. [moved to Impeach Clinton Information (1999) ]
But, the job is not finished yet. It now falls to the U.S. Senate to decide if Bill Clinton committed perjury and or obstructed justice and is thereby guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. I would encourage the U.S. Senate to uphold the impeachment and
remove Bill Clinton from office.
