Misuse of Political Power Signals Abuse of Democracy

The Republican move to impeach President Clinton is an abuse of political power. It shows a dangerous shift of priorities of our Congress and Senate from real issues, like the corporate destruction of the environment, corporate welfare, loss of funding for education, military spending waste, and the expensive high-tech hobby of the space program.

Perhaps the media is partially responsible. Most foreign news services do not cover the impeachment proceedings, and many have expressed their dismay at the Congress's misuse of government power.

The government should stay out of people's private affairs, including their sexuality. There are many bigger problems to work on, rather than piddling details about one's private life.

When Congress people use their office to turn a private sexual encounter into a major waste of taxpayer's money, it must be for a reason. Obviously, their motive is purported to be Truth, yet it's pretty obvious that the party line division of the voting makes it a political power play. Once again, their greed is revealed. The untold truths of the corporations cause far more damage to society and the environment. Shouldn't government get out of bed with business and get back to working for the common people?

The impeachment movement has done tremendous damage to the productivity of the government. This is a far greater damage to the integrity of the government.

Preserving the institution of the law in this case has become the red flag of the greedy politicians, when in the everyday lives of the people, it looks like a lynch mob. When the government spends huge amounts of time and money on such a trivial issue, it shows a disrespect of the common people and the real issues.

Congress and Senate: Get back to the real work, in the cause of the common people, not your political party.
