    if he proceeds without authorization from Congress, the President has no reason to respond positively to your call. Since Congress has failed to assert its authority on these matters for DECADES and with "leaders" like Pelosi basically saying "full steam ahead," I think we know how this is going to turn out.

    •  Demanding impeachment would be a disaster... (0+ / 0-)

      no matter who it came from.

      We've got a black man who happens to be a corporatist at the head of state and we have to work with what we've got.

      I think the important thing is that everyone join up and demand that we don't start another war.  Sign as many petitions as you have to.

      The President will respond however he responds.

      Just get bodies in the streets and behind the petitions.

      Just do what you have to do because you're on Teevee, dummy!

      •  Petitions won't do jack. (0+ / 0-)

        Bodies in the streets might, but massive turnout would be required.

          you have to get the attention of Obama's puppet masters. Obama will care if they care.
