We the People must act. Institutionalized tyranny approaches. It's a hair's breath away. Freedom's on the chopping block for elimination. Humanity may not survive Obama's second term.

Articles of impeachment are essential. Growing calls say so. In August 2011, Veterans for Peace (VFP) urged it. Waging illegal direct and proxy wars were cited.

"Therefore Be It Resolved," said VFP, "that Veterans For Peace call on the US House of Representatives to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against President Barack H.
