Calls for Barack Obama’s impeachment are not just for Texas Congressmen and Republican presidential candidates. A growing number of citizen patriots are taking the Impeach Obama Campaign to their fellow voters in battleground states across the country. The latest example was a letter to the editor published in the Mansfield News Journal on August 9 entitled, “Obama Should be Impeached for Ignoring the Constitution”:
“Excellent speech is not becoming to a fool, much less lying lips to a prince.” (Proverbs 17:7) Our president prefers to give speeches while being a fool and purposely lead us into Marxist socialism with his policies. But, we are also fools to allow him do it.
Our tea party patriots must keep up the pressure on Congress to immediately cut taxes, which will create many millions of jobs. They must also insist on capping the spending and stopping the automatic spending increases year after year in our government. Finally, the budget has to be balanced as is done in our states.
We must also understand we have the indigenous power given by our Creator to decide for ourselves how to handle the important issues that we face. Any surrogate power (legislator or president) that we elect must understand that they represent us the people.
The British Parliamentary form of government allows for a “Vote of Confidence” to remove a leader at any time and to appoint a replacement. It would have been great if our founders had put that provision in our Constitution.
America has a slower impeachment process. But, it should be invoked because of the many unconstitutional acts that Obama has already committed: the secret appointment of czars not confirmed by the Senate, the bribing of senators to pass ObamaCare, the rejection of a judge’s order to lift the ban on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and the deliberate destruction of our economy with his many liberal policies.
Don’t ever forget about the millions of American veterans dead and alive who gave their lives for our liberty and freedom in all past wars. Please God, save and bless your America.
The News Journal is a Gannett newspaper that serves Mansfield, Ohio, a quintessential American town of 50,000 people located between Cleveland and Columbus. Ohio, which determined the outcome of the 2004 presidential election, is the model bellwether state in presidential politics. Articles such as Mr. Roehrborn’s put the state’s leaders on notice that the American people will not tolerate the Democratic President’s wasteful, free-spending policies — nor the Republicans who give him cover.
Letters demanding Obama’s impeachment have been printed in newspapers in California, Florida, Illinois, Virginia, Colorado, and Kansas. If you have had an impeachment letter published in the media, send me a copy.
