I just may have to move to Vermont. This is what needs to happen in this country. According to a report on CNN:

A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community.

“This petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence, and it draws on that tradition in claiming a universal jurisdiction when governments fail to do what they’re supposed to do,” said Kurt Daims, 54, a retired machinist leading the drive.

Not surprisingly, the Vermont Attorney General thinks it would be “uphill sledding” for such an indictment to be enforceable, but I say why not. An indictment is an indictment. The Republicans themselves claimed that to be the case during the Clinton impeachment, and made all the ruckus about no one being above the law.
