Impeach President Barack Obama

Published 7:18pm Monday, June 30, 2014

Dear Editor,

I am calling for the impeachment of President Barack Hussein Obama.

Impeachment is the peaceful and legal process given to us by our Constitution for removal of our president. We must have the courage to call on our Congress to impeach our current president. Our Congress must have the courage to pursue the impeachment process. Whether this process is successful or not, we need to stand up, speak out and defend our nation. We must protect our right to govern ourselves.

The current president’s plans for fundamental change, redistribution of wealth, lack of border defense, using the federal government to intrude on individual liberty and rights and circumventing the constitutional process (among other policies) are destroying the framework of our society. His policies are rapidly weakening our power and standing in the world and undermining the integrity of our founding principles.

The president’s apparent disdain for our Constitutional government, our Judeo-Christian heritage, our spirit of individuality and entrepreneurship, and national integrity has placed our nation in a steep spiral. Without a change in leadership of our country soon, our future is in doubt.

The calls for impeachment of President Obama need to be deafening and unrelenting. The phones in the offices of Mike Rogers, Richard Shelby, and Jeff Sessions should be ringing incessantly. Their emails should be saturated with impeachment demands. We should not stop our outcry until the current president is removed.

Americans are the beneficiaries of a constitutional system “endowed by our creator”. In my opinion, our nation is a divine creation inspired and blessed by God. Our unique rights and privileges exist only in concert with our responsibilities to defend them. The courage to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States is one of the most important of those responsibilities. While principles are important, principles without the courage to defend them are without value.
