Power to the People


While the Vermont Legislature comes closer to ending their session, I personally want to remind my fellow readers and bloggers that it takes a lot more than just protesting to receive the positive results we may desire. We must write to the local media and most importantly give thanks to those who supported our cause. Our representatives work very hard in representing us so when they do we must openly thank them for their service. The following is a letter I wrote in not only expressing my opinion and thanks. If we want to see change please remember to say thanks and do it openly.

Dear Editor Times Argus,

Last week we witnessed a historic occasion, in which hundreds of Vermonters approached the statehouse to urge the Vermont House to pass a resolution to urge impeachment of the President and Vice President. The resolution unfortunately did fail, however a message of deep concern has been broadcasted.

There are those critics who state that the Vermont Legislature should not get involved in national issues, however I disagree. The last six years the country has been hijacked by overzealous individuals who have determined that it is their right to do whatever they deem necessary without regards to the United States Constitution or International Law. At a time when we here in Vermont are faced with an increasing tax burden, higher costs in education and health care we have a federal government that has no quarrels in lying to the public in supporting spending billions of dollars on a deceitful war. The federal government is costing Vermont billions of dollars.

I am proud to live in a state who’s Senate courageously voted to recommend impeachment. I would like to thank Senate President Pro-Tem Peter Shumlin for bringing up the vote and Senator Cummings for voting, yes. In addition I would like to thank House Speaker Gaye Symington for at least allowing the vote to take place and my representatives Warren Kitzmiller and Jon Anderson for voting yes. While the resolutions were non-binding, I hope that Congressman Peter Welch sees the deep concerns we Vermonters have and support the move for impeachment.

Peace
