CITIZENS' LETTERS to CONGRESS + Fire-Starr Petition Signers

Signers by Pen..... ----- indicates new record
--- : To the House of Representatives from Juliette Vos - a U.S. Citizen living in London: I would like very much for our elected representatives to stop wasting our money and their time pursuing the President for sexual peccadilloes. There must be more pressing matters on the agenda of the House than this. As an American abroad, I have been continually embarrassed bythe behavior of the House, Senate and the press. We are fortunate here to be able to escape the constant television and print discussion of such trivial issues. The president made a mistake that I'm certain many of you have as well. If his wife can forgive him, isn't that really all that matters. Censure him if you must, then get on with your jobs.

---DIANE BOYD" Please sign me up on your petition to stop the impeachment of President Clinton (who is no saint) by the Republicans (seeking to gain the White House at any cost). I am more worried over the future of our country by the Republican actions than by Mr. Clinton's sex life. SIGNED: Diane Boyd, 446 W. Harter Ave, Visalia, CA 93277, (209)625-4229,,

Walt Innenberg" This is a government "OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE", NOT OF THE REPUBLICANS BY THE REPUBLICANS AND FOR THE REPUBLICANS! THE PEOPLE RULE AND WE WIILL SPEAK AT THE NEXT ELECTIONS SHOULD YOU CONTINUE ON THIS PARTISAN COURSE! Are you listening Rep. Jerry Lewis?? As a registered voter, I will never again vote for another Republican if your actions continue, and am sure I am speaking for numerous others who are offended by your partisan approach to theproblem. Finally, I will say, IT'S THE PEOPLE, STUPID!! ROBERTA INNENBERG

To Congress + House of Representatives:Impeaching our president, President Clinton, on these charges and against the will of most Americans is outragous and should be stopped immediately!

---The campaign affords a simple way for anyone to express the point of view that impeachment of President Clinton is "Not the Way"; and, asks participants to wear a symbol - specifically, a simple overhand knot, made of any material - that tells others, everyday, that impeachment is "(K)not the Way".

----No one has done more for the total overall good of the family, local governments, and our country than Bill Clinton. And absolutely no one has done more for educational opportunities of all Americanyoung people and the down-to-earth "Fred Flinstones" of America than Bill Clinton. His personal life has had no detrimental bearings on his accomplishments whatsoever. Bill Clinton has transformed ourcountry from the ground up, righting obsolete and uncaring formerly "establishment" approaches all the way. With whom he spent inappropriate sexual moments is irrelevant. We need Bill Clinton. We need him desperately. What we do NOT need are envious "Holier than thou" people in office who do not pay any attentionwhatsoever to what the American people are indicating what they want. And the American people are screaming. The message trying to be conveyed is to KEEP BILL CLINTON IN OFFICE. The very foundation of our democracy indicates that people will rule, and rule through their chosen representatives. How long can these representatives who ignore the wishes of the American peoplestay in office. Why should they? Can they be so blind that they think that their way is the only way, regardless of what their own people are telling them! Not for long, is the answer. These electedofficials will meet their demise at the next election opportunity. THEY UNDERMINE THE MEANING AND FUNCTION OF DEMOCRACY. HOW CAN THE PEOPLE TRULY RULE IF THEY ARE BLATANTLY IGNORED?!!! We need Bill Clinton. No one has done more for good and been judged so harshly for evil alone. DO SOMETHING!!!! VOTE AGAINST IMPEACHMENT OF BILL CLINTON! YOU WILL BE VOTING TO RETAIN DEMOCRACY AS IT WAS INTENDED TO FUNCTION: BY THEPEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLE, AND FOR THE PEOPLE.

---Dear Friends: As the publishers of Cleis Press since 1980 and lifelong passionate advocates of political rights and personal freedoms, we urge you to oppose the movement to impeach President Clinton. The Republican campaign to oust a twice-elected President amounts to nothing less than a circumvention of the democratic process. In any other country, we'd call it a coup d’etat. We find the Republicans' sudden concern for constitutional politics suspect at best. Lying about sex is far less dangerous to constitutional government than ousting a democratically-elected president. That the Republicans are once again using sex as a political weapon, hiding a conservative political agenda beneath a blanket of fake morality, we find reprehensible. Whatever your opinion of Clinton’s policies or personal choices, we encourage you to make phone calls, write letters and send email to members of congress and other government officials. Please do everything in your power to rally support for the President and against those who are trying to oust him. Sincerely yours, Frédérique Delacoste and Felice Newman, Publishers, Cleis Press

--- Thu, 17 Dec 1998 00:08:35 -0400 Please do everything in your powers to stop this political sham and to get on with the country's real business. Nothing Bill Clinton did amounts to any impeachable offenses. Further, I think Ken Starr should be investigated for entrapment. I read a newspaper article that stated Ken Starr and company, by detaining Ms Lewinski and preventing her from calling her attorney to stop him from filing her affidavit that Starr(because of Tripp) knew was false.

----Dear Congressperson, I am appalled that you possibly are caught up in the blood frenzy that is on the verge of tying the country up in a stupid impeachment trial that trivilizes the constitution and makes partisan mockery of the impeachment process. Please consider your vote carefully. There is simply no way that history will view recent behavior by right-wing zealots in congress as anything other than the political vendetta that it is.

---January 6, 1999, Dear Senator: I am part of no group, I am an American citizen and voter who does not particularly condone the President's personal actions while in the White House. But this national situation has progressed way beyond any reasonable debate between reasonable people. We are an INTERNATIONAL joke, due to the way that we have handled this situation. And this has occurred while the world teeters on political and financial instability around the planet, where other countries look for leadership in a United States that is totally obsessed with a rebuke of their President for wrongdoing in a non-national-security private affair and his actions thereafter... If this process was a legitimate question of impeachable offenses, THERE WOULD BE REPRESENTATIVES OF BOTH PARTIES in support of impeachment..... As witnessed in the House Judiciary Committee and the House votes on impeachment, this is not the case, and you are our LAST CHANCE to AVOID an international spectacle of unprecedented proportions, a trial in the Senate. Please give your strongest consideration toward REJECTING impeachment as a solution to this problem and, on behalf of most logical-thinking Americans, I believe, please let me request that Senate Republicans and Democrats together work toward the resolution of not only this situation, but also on the other major issue that have suddenly become global while we tinker with our problems... I am particularly outraged at House conservatives, whose undue influence, even now in the Senate, has held this country hostage while they have been on their relentless hunt to bring down this President. The American people will not forget what has happened here, and as one voter who has voted for a fair number of Republicans in the past, I may NEVER vote for another Republican again. I'm sure that I am not alone... Please restore some common-sense to that which has been partisan insanity. Respectfully, Lane B. Holt, 11983 Alderbrook St., Moorpark, CA 93021, 805-523-8747
--- You have hijacked the will of the majority of Americans who elected President Clinton. You have chased me from the Republican Party as a result of your un-American and hypocritical behavior. You and the rest of the Party will be punished at the polls in 2000, resulting in the Democrats controlling the Executive and Legislative (and by appointments, Judicial) Branches of the government, which is a very unfavorable result for our country. Stop this nonsense now!! Mark Kaplan
