Through the joint efforts of the LYM and the rest of the population, relevant congressmen are realizing that continuing to kiss the ass of Felix Rohatyn will only leave them with gonorrhea.</p><p>At a recent town hall meeting in Vermont, what could easily be described as a mob for impeachment of about 200 people showed up at the town hall meeting of Rep. Peter Welch. Welch is a freshman congressman, and has said he disagrees with his constituents that impeachment is the way to stop the war. Did he disagree with his constituents when they chose to elect him, too?</p><p>When the LYM arrived, there were quaint signs from those constituents saying things like, "Peter Welch: the Wizard of Pause," "Peter Welch needs a surge in his pants," and "Peter Welch: the next Joe Lieberman." At the LYM table outside, the Children of Satan books were flying out of organizer's hands.</p><p>Inside, there were immediate disruptions of Welch's short address by people yelling, "We're here to discuss impeachment!" and other interventions, to the point that Welch wasn't able to talk about how he's trying to help the farmers or trying to lower college tuition. The "Raging Grannies" started off the event with an impeachment song that the entire crowd began singing and clapping along to. That set the tone for ever-escalating tension throughout the next few hours. Many concerned citizens brought up the trampling on of the Constitution by this administration. One woman even had Welch re-recite his Constitutional oath as a congressman. Three LYM organizers addressed the meeting, with one laying down this challenge: "If you don't sign on to Kucinich's bill to impeach Cheney, how are you going to get re-elected when you have members of the young generation running against you who are willing to do what's right?"</p><p>The only applause while Welch was speaking came when he mentioned the section of the Constitution on impeachment, to which the entire crowd interrupted him, stood up and started clapping, stomping or banging their canes.</p><p>At a town hall meeting on the other side of the country that same day, Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) was confronted by the LYM on impeachment as well. Although Stark tried to claim that impeachment "would be a distraction" (from what?), the LYM, while pointing out that the Sophistry which destroyed Greece has also corrupted politicians today, persisted in posing the danger of the real estate-driven financial collapse and the urgency of impeaching Cheney as the Constitutional responsibility of the Congressman. This sparked a dialogue that included other constituents at the meeting, who joined the LYM in confronting Stark's evasions.</p><p>In Houston, Rep. Al Green (D-TX) was confronted with the same nationwide demand for impeachment from Democratic community leaders. The LYM circulated a resolution in support of Kucinich's bill.</p><p>Obviously, LaRouche was right when he said that "the impeachment of Cheney is more popular than ice cream."</p></div></body>
