Vermont Ballot Initiative

Cindy Sheehan praises Vermont but mentions nothing of 9/11 ballot measure in recent press release

Cindy Sheehan focuses on "impeachment resolutions" and does not specifically mention the Vermont 9/11 ballot measure:

"Dozens of towns in Vermont will be voting on impeachment resolutions in their town meetings this Tuesday, March 6th as a people's antidote for the political temerity of Congress. If Congress won't do their constitutional duty, then, we the people will.

Vermont, the world is watching. Be the glowing beacon that leads our country down a path of justice and peace.

The hope of the world is counting on you."

In the name of 9/11, our government has invaded, detained, tortured, and spied. It’s undermined the Constitution and shredded the Bill of Rights. And it shows no signs of stopping.

Skeptical? Ask yourself, without the 9/11 induced “war on terror,” would the Patriot Act have been enacted? Habeas corpus suspended? Torture legalized? Without 9/11, would the American people have allowed the president and Congress to illegally invade a sovereign country, spending billions of dollars there while ignoring major issues like healthcare, global warming, and the growing gap between rich and poor?

Maybe you’re hopeful that a new Congress will right these wrongs. But bear in mind, the president’s agenda has enjoyed bipartisan support. And, it remains unclear whether growing opposition to the war is because it’s illegal and unconstitutional, or simply because we’re not winning.
