Rescue Our Democracy is a non-violent, non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the Constitution. Through star-studded mass gatherings, we educate the public as to the need for investigations of crimes committed by the Bush administration and for the impeachment of Bush and other top officials. We thus defend our constitutional principles for which our Founding Founders so gallantly fought and which have so sadly been eroded.
We are affiliated with After Downing Street and ImpeachBush.TV. Our educational efforts are intended to supplement the work done by those groups to lobby Congress and to get state legislatures to petition Congress for impeachment.

This is an historic thing we do. Non-violently we are taking the leadership to revive our Constitution, to renew our philosophical beliefs in a democratic republic dedicated to humanistic law that our founders envisioned, fought for and gave to us as the greatest inheritance ever bestowed on a nation.
God willing we will restore American ideals, away from which we've swerved under George W. Bush's administration.
IMPEACH WE SAY
Impeach the man who sits in the office of the President and who is defiling our Constitution. Impeach the Vice President and all cohorts in office. Protect the office by putting in new leaders who uphold the law.
Impeach those who would lie to Congress and the American People, propagandize us, and remove our rights: to privacy, to counsel, to a speedy trial, to be confronted by our accusers, to Habeas Corpus, to search warrants, and on and on ad infinitum. Impeach those who scare the people into submission.
Trumped up charges of weapons of mass destruction were used to occupy a sovereign country; so we could control and virtually steal their oil, sending our young boys and girls to be mutilated and killed.
Who could imagine our country promoting torture of prisoners? Who could imagine our country endorsing the kidnapping of suspects and "rendering" them to another country where fascist dictators will use the most horrendous tortures in interrogations, usually resulting in the obtaining of misinformation?
Impeachment is not a finding of guilt. It is like a grand jury presenting an indictment. The Senate would then conduct a trial on those charges. There is ample evidence and there are plenty of smoking guns to make a credible case for an indictment. Among these are the President's own admission that he has been spying on Americans and his own words on 750 "signing statements" indicating that he intends to ignore the law.
IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH
BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO!
Impeach because an historic statement needs to be made that We The People will not stand for the destruction of our democracy and the America we love. We will not accept being lied to or being given misinformation. We will speak out. We will stand up for America.
Remember Pastor Martin Niemöller, who wrote about the Nazis going after various groups. Each time, he says, "I remained silent" because he was not one of those being taken away. He concludes, "When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out."
With few exceptions such as the Congressional Black Caucus, our representatives have said nothing. It is time for us to speak out.
We the people will stand up and speak for the America we love and for the young people sent into harm's way under false pretenses.
When the people rise up non-violently, the leaders will follow.
Millions of people are waiting for us to rally them.
Each of us must take a stand for democracy or lose it! Regardless of status, personal wealth, fame, notoriety, all of us must come together -- Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Arabs, Jews, liberals, traditional conservatives -- to stand against the threat of fascism.
We need you in cities and towns across the country. We need you in Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Chicago, Denver, Miami, St. Louis, Albuquerque, and everywhere.
