Platform, Resolution Push for Impeachment

The party faithful approved a platform calling for the impeachment of President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. They also approved a resolution pledging to hold organizational meetings to get county and municipal referenda on impeachment and the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

A section of the party platform reads:

We must do everything possible to prevent our enemies from attacking us, but we believe that this can be done without sacrificing the civil rights guaranteed under the Constitution. Therefore, we call upon Congress to begin impeachment proceedings immediately against President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld.


Resolution 06-PG-03 reads:

WHEREAS, the DPW in 2005 passed "impeachment" and "expeditious withdrawal of US troops from Iraq" resolutions and now the high crimes and misdemeanors and war are much worse;

THEREFORE, RESOLVED, the DPW shall act on these resolutions by conducting organizing meetings throughout Wisconsin to get county and municipal referenda questions on impeachment and withdrawal on the 11/7/06 and 4/3/07 ballots; cooperate with other organizations seeking the same objectives; provide financial and legal assistance as necessary; and appoint immediately after the 2006 State Convention an implementation committee to see that this effort is conducted with serious determination.
