Well, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Mr. Barack Obama must be impeached. The problem is that people are scared of being labeled a racist. Sorry, if you are our elected official, your job is to listen to the voice of the people. And the people say: Impeach The President!
Per the constitution: Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
This president has continually taken actions that can be considered ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors’, by usurping the authority of the elected officials. He stated that his policies were on the ballot, even though he wasn’t. And the American public responded by rejecting those who supported his policies. At that point, Mr. Obama then decided to do what he does best: Disregard the plebiscite and do what he wants to do anyway. Mr. Obama, as well as his cronies in the democrat party, blamed the losses on older white people voting and ‘people of colour’ avoiding the mid-terms. Well, Mr. Obama, I’m a ‘person of colour’ and I didn’t abstain. And I know thousands of others who didn’t either.
So, with the rejection of his policies, Mr. Obama does what he does best: throw a temper tantrum and demand that Congress enact immigration policy before the end of the year, or he would. Then, without waiting for the end of the year, Mr. Obama decides to implement his executive action anyway. Mr. Obama, you have pushed executive orders too many times, making laws, although you have no authority or responsibility to do so. Your job is to sign and implement law that the Congress has passed. If you don’t like the law, you can veto the law. You cannot, according to the constitution, create laws whole cloth out of nothing. You have violated your job, and shown that you have no regard for the laws of the land, or for the representatives of the people.
The president claims that congress has done nothing. Yet, when the democrats had both the congress and the white house, there wasn’t even an attempt at getting minor immigration law done, let alone comprehensive immigration change. When the president saw that he would be a lame duck president, however, he decided to show how he truly feels about the congress and the American people. It seems that every time Mr. Obama feels threatened, instead of working with Congress, he goes his own way. The Supreme Court has already identified areas where Mr. Obama has overreached his authority. As the above states, the president can be impeached for ‘High Crimes or Misdemeanors’. If the behavior if this president does not show ‘High Crimes or Misdemeanors’, Congress should not have ever considered the impeachment of Nixon or Clinton.
Mr. Obama has, by his actions, made a mockery of the Constitution, even though he claims to be a constitutional lawyer. He has ripped apart the Bill of Rights, has sliced and diced the Constitution, and ignored both the Congress and the Supreme Court, the other two branches of the US Government.
If we do not hold our president accountable, if we allow the president to run roughshod over our liberties, we shall not be any better than Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, or Venezuela. We must make our representatives stand up to this impending dictator. The presidency is an elected position, one that answers to the American people. We do not answer to the emperor of the US, as there is none. Now is the time to stand firm, and tell Mr. Obama, No more, not another step, no more.
