    "Two Vermont towns called their residents to endorse a measure that wound (sic) direct the police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for “crimes against our Constitution,” Reuters informs.

    Vermont is a state known for taking liberal positions regarding national issues. The voters in Brattleboro and Marlboro voted for the enforcement of the measure allowing police to arrest both Bush and Cheney if it ever occurs to them to visit Brattleboro or nearby Marlboro. Moreover, the measure instructs town police to “extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them.”

    I agree with the National Republican Committee spokesman (which is an uncomfortable position to be in).

    These people are idiots. Like the town in Colorado whose city council drafted articles of impeachment. Morons.

    Yeah, good luck on that. Unless there are two other towns full of idiots in Vermont, this is old news and was already posted a couple months ago or so.

    I would say this qualifies as Treason. The town officials should be arrested and tried for treason and Cheney should visit so that any police or citizens dumb enough to try and arrest him can also be arrested for Treason.

    Since the only real "powers" that would try Bush and or Cheney are our enemies the bolded part applies.

    The voters in Vermont, as part of the United States of America, have spoken. While symbolic it is a powerful indictment of the worst administration in the history of modern times. Those who voted for the Cheney/Bush administration will one day tell their children, "I was sick and didn't vote that year." "But Grandpop he was elected twice." "Yes, strange but I was sick both times." :rofl:

    "In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012-1,795. In Marlboro, which held a town meeting on the issue, it was 43-25 with three abstentions."

    No one with any knowledge of the elections will ever be ashamed to admit they voted for Bush. The two people that ran against him ensured his victory.If Gore were President when 9/11 happened a couple tomahawks would have been launched at a couple empty training camps and we would have faced even more attacks.

    If Kerry had been elected we would have depended on France to tell us what our foreign policy should be.

    It's not a powerful anything. All but other partisans will take it for exactly what it is - a bunch of partisan nonsense.

    RGS, you need to use that crystal ball to get lottery numbers. Your reasoning is the typical negative baloney. Now be man enough to admit this is the worst administration in history. We don't know the other story it didn't happen.

    Steerpike, I disagree as it speaks to actions that were dishonest at the minimum, and it writes into history how some people felt about the C/B admin. The fact the vote happened at all is a powerful statement.

    Which means they, like most liberals, only care about (supposed) violations of the Constitution when Republicans do it.
