Last Hope For Impeachment?

I doubt it. Bush, I'm sure, will probably keep providing us with valid reasons to impeach his ass--whether or not the American people will be willing to do something about them. But, the fact that Bush has admitted he authorized the leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame, as a political stab in retaliation for Joe Wilson's refusal to lie about WMD's (Bush has not admitted to this as of yet), is to many the " final nail in the coffin proving we have a dictatorship in Washington."
Dictatorships are not just defined as 'Hitler-esqe' with hand salutes and gas chambers. The dictionary's definition of "dictatorship" is : " The office or goverment of a dictator; a country governed by a dictator; absolute power; ruler with absolute authority, usually acquired by force; tyrannical; domineering."
Bush has argued on several occasions that he can do anything, whether it breaks the law or not, and his White House staff agree. Is that not absolute power??
Alberto Gonzales has again placed Bush above and beyond the law when he said that the administration could outright authorize wiretaps of domestic American citizen's phone calls without a warrant. Read the U.S. Constitution's 4th Amendment.
If "dictatorship" seems to harsh a word for you ( seems spot-on to me), how about the defintion of " totalitarianism"? : "Relating to a system of goverment in which one political group maintains complete control, especially under a dictator." " A form of goverment in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a Constitution or laws or opposition)."
Are we just going to let Bush's clock run out, or are we actually going to pursue an impeachment? It's truly time for the latter, but who will have the balls to stand up? Why are American's such tools? In any other country, the people would have risen up against a president and/or goverment, why not here??
So many questions, yet no organization, no answers, no accountability, no leader to stand in Our behalf.
