Perhaps An Alternate Would Be...
Re the new ContractfromAmerica outgrowth by some in the tea party movement, perhaps an alternate path would be using the Articles of Confederation as a starting place for those "temporary autonomous zones" formed in the sequential ruins of the FedGov financial collapse, followed closely by the consequent War of the Foreign Creditors Against the Deadbeat American Debtors (a/k/a "The Repo War").
Alternate #2 would be for someone at ContractfromAmerica to explain to me, in detail, what realistic political means exist to defeat House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel at the ballot boxes of New York's 15th Congressional District, unless impeachment were a more expeditious remedy. Those arguing for impeachment should outline in detail the realistic steps needed to achieve that goal.
I'd like to hear those plans.
