Vermont Congressional Candidate: Arrest Bush and Cheney

Dennis Morrisseau, Independent Congressional candidate in Vermont, is calling for the arrest of Bush and Cheney in the event they illegaly invade Iran:

The antiwar Vietnam vet is a Republican, but he has won approval from the State of Vermont to run on the ballot line “Impeach Bush Now,” rather than Democrat or Republican.

[…]

Morrisseau said any order for an attack upon Iran or to deploy naval forces to its coastal waters is illegal, and called upon officers of the American military to “First, refuse to obey such an order. If the president persists and insists on ordering our forces into combat in or over Iran without a formal Declaration of War, then I call upon you, General Pace, as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and upon such other military officers as clearly see their duty in these circumstances to detain both the President and Vice President, until such time as the Congress shall act.”

Morrisseau is running for Vermont’s at-large seat vacated by socialist Bernie Sanders, who has held the seat since 1991 as an Independent. Although Morrisseau helped create the socialist Liberty Union Party, he claims to have been a Republican until recently in an interview with Daryl Bradford Smith. He first entered this race as a Republican, but dropped out of the primary to run as an Independent.

Liberty Union candidate Jane Newton, Independent candidate Keith Stern and two representatives from the mega-party are also in the race.
