I really need to move to Vermont. Kurt Daims, a resident in Brattleboro, VT started a petition to have Bush and Cheney arrested for crimes against the Constitution. The petition received enough signatures to have the Select Board of Brattleboro consider it and they voted in favor of allowing it on the March 4th ballot.
It reads:

"Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictments for consideration by other authorities and shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and prosecute or extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them?"

Unfortunately, even if it passes it will have no legal standing as the town's attorney and police have no authority to write an indictment against, or arrest the President or Vice President.
