Impeach Jeb Bush!

The story cited below, if true, demonstrates a lack of respect for the law by Governor Jeb Bush that can only be corrected by removing him from office. Whatever happens to Terri Schaivo will not change the fact of the Governor's misconduct and impeachment is an appropriate solution.

"Hours after a judge ordered that Terri Schiavo wasn't to be removed from her hospice, a team of Florida law enforcement agents were en route to seize her and have her feeding tube reinserted - but they stopped short when local police told them they would enforce the judge's order, The Miami Herald has learned."

Whether or not one agrees with the string of consistent court rulings regarding the Schiavo case, any thinking person is going to be more comfortable leaving that kind of determination to the court system which is designed to ferret out facts and keep it out of the political process where the influence of lobbyists and publicists is much greater than that of facts. In this case, the governor has let his official acts be influenced by lobbyists and publicists who have played on his religious beliefs. This is simply not acceptable in a free society.

The Florida democratic party has itself been on life support for the past few years; maybe the outrageous conduct of this out-of-control governor will cause them to spring back to life.
