According to the Constitution of the United States, Amendment 14, Section 3, John Kerry has no right to serve in Congress, not to mention run for President of the United States.
The Constitution says: "Section 3.
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability."
In 1971, while American troops fought in Viet Nam, John Kerry went to Paris and, by his own admission, said he had talked to "both delegations" and went on to explain that he meant both Communist delegations. He returned from Paris to endorse the Viet Cong's "peace plan" as if the pronouncements of Communist leaders deserved to be taken at face value. The Viet Cong's foreign minister, Madame Binh, had told him, he said, that 'if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal, the prisoners of war would be returned.' The fact that she said so, he suggested, proved that President Nixon was lying: 'I think this negates very clearly the argument of the president that we have to maintain a presence in Vietnam, to use as a negotiating block for the return of those prisoners. The setting of a date will accomplish that.'"
He did not go to Paris as a representative of the US Government, charged with working out a peace plan. He went to Paris as a war protestor intent on undermining the US government. That is treason.
And now this man, this underhanded, sneaking, lying traitor has the effrontery to lead an effort to impeach President Bush. He says Bush wanted Hussein out. So did he (Kerry) and everyone else!
Now we know Hussein actually did have WMDs, as we see now from reports of weapons showing up in Syria, etc. and roadside bombs reconstructed from double-chambered chemical weapons systems. So the Democrats now have to back-pedal, saying that US troops let the weapons get away. (Which is an admission that they existed.)
You'll never get a Democrat to admit he was wrong. That takes character. And honesty.
Reasons for impeachment are: Bribery, treason, “high crimes and misdemeanors." Abuse of power and serious misconduct in office fit this category. The big argument seems to be that the President lied when he led us to war in Iraq. That argument shouldn't go very far since all of the world's intelligence sources claimed Hussein had WMDs, the French and Russians had provided them, and 71 members of Congress voted for the war.
All of these voted to invade Iraq: YEAs ---77
Edwards (D-NC)Ensign (R-NV)
Kerry (D-MA)Kohl (D-WI)
And not a single one voted that way because the President told him/her to but because of the reports they saw from intelligence agencies.
One act that is definitely not grounds for impeachment is partisan discord.
And that's what we have here. Kerry and his Krew, who believed the original intelligence on WMDs and who said for years that Hussein must be removed, now are trying to obfuscate all that, AND Kerry's treason, and turn their disgrace onto President Bush.
