Kucinich On His Cheney Impeachment Measure: "It's Not Over" [VIDEO]

This post, written by Manila Ryce, originally appeared on The Largest Minority

John Edwards says there are “two Americas”. He’s almost correct. Though there is indeed a huge economic gap between rich and poor, the greater disparity is between the people and their so-called representative government. Public support and political support are so incongruent on issues like the war, health care, the environment, government spending, and impeachment that it’s all too obvious whose interests congress is really looking out for.

The vast majority of Americans have been in favor of impeaching Vice President Cheney for quite some time. The recent attempt to kill Kucinich’s impeachment resolution earlier this week was nothing less than an attempt to kill democracy; to kill the voice of the American people. And that economic gap Edwards talks about? It too would cease to exist if we had real representation. Once again, that small percentage at the top has decided not to listen to us because they claim to know better than we do what is best for their party… oops, I mean what is best for the country.
