"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then, to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in broad daylight!" - Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) -

Betty Hall Beat'em All!

Manchester, NH - At the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention, Saturday, in spite of every possible roadblock thrown in her path by party leaders to prevent it, Rep. Betty Hall's Resolution to Commence Impeachment Procedures was adopted.

The message sent by the people is the first step of this Constitutional Procedure - BEGIN INVESTIGATIONS NOW to determine if there is sufficient cause/evidence to hold our current elected leaders in Washington responsible.

The Governor came and went, Howard Dean came and went, the same for the Congressional candidates and state politicos during a long stint in a packed gymnasium on a glorious spring weekend day which began at 8:30 am. In the very last minutes of the convention, about 4:00 pm, the Democratic party leaders let the vote for the Hall Impeachment Resolution and the town of Newbury Accountability Resolution take place.

Representative Betty Hall gave 2 of her 3 allotted minutes to the only speaker who was merely a citizen delegate. She was the people's one lone grassroots speaker, who was not a leadership pick or an official.

Her name is Nan; imagine her lone, quiet voice finally getting a chance to say something after all the "notables". She spoke, and even sang her support, and the room erupted!

Betty Hall's impeachment resolution asking for the support of the Democratic Party of NH passed. The people's voice was finally heard!

Unlike the rest of the day, it was an unscripted, spontaneous expression of celebration, standing and cheering in support of Rep. Hall's resolution to begin investigations and, at the very least, lay out the facts.

The delegates heard what they wanted to hear and with their vote confirmed, they want truth and accountability from our government!

Above the heads of the speakers was a huge banner that read: HOPE LEADERSHIP VICTORY. The peoples' delegates proclaimed all three.

The People Get It.
