Carole Damon (5/24, Letters, “Carter’s comments”) has the right idea about the Bush administration but stops short of the “I” word. Why are we so afraid to say they must be impeached? That is the only logical next step. It will also serve as a warning to the rest of our elected officials who are no longer responsive to the people. Somewhere they have lost the connection to those who elected them. If you watch the newscasts, you can tell that a lot of them are still afraid to speak up. This is due to the post-9/11 motto: Either you are with us or against us. We need to write our elected officials and demand that they stand up for us and stop acting like sheep.
