When NAFTA was being developed I was aghast that chapter 11 of it let a corporate tribunal extort "anticipated profits" from the treasuries of our country, states, counties, cities, etc. And those of other countries.

Sums in the hundreds of millions or billions of dollars.

It also gave subsidized US corporate factory farms free rein to bankrupt small farmers in Mexico and other countries. Which led to desperate people migrating into our country, legally or not.

As Ross Perot warned, the act resulted in massive losses of factories and jobs from the USA.

The transfer of power from the US government to corporate tribunals is clearly in step with what president Bush I referred to as a "New World Order". The elites are so contemptuous of us that they'll state their treasonous intents openly.

Since NAFTA, there have been others. See Bernie Sanders article. And now there's the Trans Pacific Partnership, which would form new corporate tribunals to overrule our republic.

Wars have been fought for less.

Clearly advocating these acts from the position of the President is not acting to "maintain and uphold the US Constitution" as he swore to do. Quite the contrary, it is treason. Which is grounds for impeachment.

Why are Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Rand Paul and others not calling for the impeachment of Obama for treason?

If we call and advocate impeachment for Obomber, it might at least elevate the topic to a visible level. Certainly the TPP warrants it. Why not? I see it as a duty and have started.
