The PLAN and The PLEDGE.

The Plan for Victory strategy is simple and direct. Below is a step-by-step description of how it will work, followed by a copy of THE PLEDGE in Support of Impeachment.

EMAIL ANY CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS THROUGH THE COMMENTS LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. ONCE YOU ARE COMMITED TO ACT PLEASE SIGN A PLEDGE AND MAIL IT IN. YOUR PLEDGE WILL JOIN THOSE OF OTHER AMERICANS ON THE FLOOR OF CONGRESS WHEN THE BILL TO IMPEACH IS INTRODUCED.

Step 1. PUBLIC RALLIES - Hold "Plan for Victory" impeachment rallies for mobilizing the movement to impeach the President and his co-conspirators. At the rallies, describe the plan in detail, take questions, and collect pledges in support of a bill to impeach the President. Direct attendees to spread the word to any friends, relatives, and co-workers in support of impeachment, and bring them to the next rally to sign their own pledge in support of the bill.

Note: See text of pledges below.

Step 2. DELIVER PLEDGES - Once a significant number of pledges are collected, they will be delivered to a Representative committed to introducing the bill, and will accompany him/her to the floor when the bill is introduced.

Step 3. PUT CONGRESS ON NOTICE - The Representative will notify Congress of the intention to introduce the bill and of the consequences that will follow any killing of the bill, or remanding of the bill to committee.

Step 3. INTRODUCE THE BILL TO IMPEACH - If Congress passes the bill, impeachment hearings will begin. If Congress kills the bill, or sends it to die in committee, the Representative will immediately call on all Americans to send in their pledges in support of the bill C/O the Clerk of the Congress. (If even half of those Americans who voted against President Bush in 2004 send pledges we will have 25 million pledges flooding Washington demanding impeachment; not to mention the many disillusioned Republicans who have been betrayed by a president who uses their profound faith in God and country against them).

Step 4. RE-INTRODUCE THE BILL - Once the additional pledges are collected, the Representative will return to the floor and re-introduce the bill, this time warning that unless the bill is passed and impeachment hearings begin, he/she will call in the pledges and those citizens so sworn will stay home from work and desist from any unnecessary purchases, beginning the morning of the next business day and continuing until the bill is passed. The streets of America will empty. Business as usual will stop.

Note: Only in the event that Congress twice defies the people's demand to try this president for offences against the U.S. Constitution and International law will a strike and boycott be called. Also, because there are no demonstrations called for in the Plan, there will be no opportunity for violence against striking citizens, or public or personal property. American's will sit safely in their homes, watching the effect of their actions on TV.

It is the expectation of The Fifth Branch that once our people's pledges have been delivered to the floor of Congress, it will be clear that a sea change has taken place and that power has been returned to the people. Under these circumstances, we believe further proof of America's solidarity will be unneccessary and a strike, unlikely. Still, every pledge must be taken with the full expectation that a brief strike and boycott will be called.


THE PLEDGE.
