Dear President Obama

Dear President Obama and Members of Congress:

The wars in which the United States is currently engaged–in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Libya–are harming U.S. national and economic security, degrading the standing of the United States in the world community, fueling hatred abroad for Americans and undermining the rule of law. These unconstitutional wars have been justified on false premises, and most recently in the case of Libya there was not even the pretense of a congressional declaration of war, making it an impeachable offense. We urge you to end the current illegal wars and start a national dialogue about shifting U.S. foreign policy away from dominance through military might, and toward being a member of the community of nations.

    It is still very urgently necessary for the United States of America’s national security for our official government to correct the obvious intentional cover up of what actually happened on September 11, 2001, as well as who actually did that treason of mass murder and destruction that was fraudulently and wrongly used to begin the ongoing and still expanding criminal US lead NATO wars of terror. This country must prosecute those in our supposed “representative” government for their crimes of treason, a first step in bringing us back to true Independence that guaranteed by our Constitution. We must again be able to have freedom without the degrading Patriot Act that wrongfully destroyed the meaningful Bill of Rights.

  3. Robert Stephens says:

    This must be done for those who have already lost their lives in war as well as well as for those who are in harms way at this time. We must always be prepared for war but to continue doing what we are doing now is insane, unproductive, inhumane and lastly, it is financially destructive to everyone in this country except for the select few who profit from war.

    Please add my signature to the letter. America is spending vast amounts of wealth it does not have, creating historic deficits, bankrupting its economy, undermining its own laws and constitution, undermining its credibility, restricting the civil liberties of its people, failing to create jobs at home, in the pursuit of a destructive militaristic foreign policy with dubious goals that extends endlessly into the future. How will these wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, (Iran?), resource wars that seem intended to surround the ME oil region with a permanent military presence, make America safer and more secure? Are we safer today, the ME more stable and the petroleum lifeline more reliable as a result of these wars? It never did make a lot of sense and it makes less sense today. It’s long overdue that we adopt a sane foreign policy.

    Dear President Obama,

    I worked on your campaign and believed in your message. I ask that you re-connect with the person that you were and your beliefs and save this great nation and it’s people! Bring our troops home and put those billions of dollars back into services for those suffering here in the United States!!

    The USA is 14 Trillion Dollars in Debt, mostly to other nations, and the monthly interest alone is over 100 Billion Dollars, which had to be borrowed from other nations.
    Yet, the US government transfers over 1 Trillion Dollars a year to Wall Street corporations known also as the Military Industrial Complex.
    The US government also transfers the wealth of the nation to other nations through financial aid and loans.
    This is not sustainable.
    The US Empire is expanding like a Wall Street Bubble, and it must stop expanding or it will collapse, like the US Dollar is collapsing, and hyper-inflation is taking hold of our lives.
    Can you see the problem?
    Stop spending our money, and our future, on never ending wars that serve only the corporate interests, and shut down all US military bases around the world, and return all military personal back to the USA.
    Peace.

    One has to have a grip on social theory and history to understand what is to come. I called for Obama’s impeachment, the first week he was in office for two reasons, namely 1 plus 1 equals 2 and it could only get worse. First reason was that Obama was surrounding himself with Wall Street, Goldman Sachs criminals as his corporate, class advisors, proof he bought into the same class dogmas, of free markets, free trade which were in fact class tyranny, class deformed markets and appeasement of Wall Street criminals.

    Reason two was his order to the fascist CIA and military to carry out illegal aggression, illegal drone attacks against countries that involved hundreds of innocent victims. Such Nazi behavior SUGGESTED TO ME that Obama believed in military might of Amerika, fascism itself, and breaking international laws. It took 3 years for the liberal and progressive community to put 1 plus 1 together, that these corporate and military fascist policies would only widen, extend throughout the world until Obama became Bush ‘s third term presidency, a BI PARTISAN FASCISM. Welcome to rationality, morality, logic and impeachment of the two party criminal system. The Liberal class/empire whores, appeasers of Fascism, began with the Weimar regime appeasing Hitler and fascist capitalism. Today the corporate /NATO west appeases global fascism, both corporate and military despotism.

    This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

  15. Willie says:

    The very root of your writing while appearing agreeable initially, did not work perfectly with me after some time.
    Someplace throughout the sentences you actually managed to make
    me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while.
    I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do well
    to fill in those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that,
    I will definitely be fascinated.

  16. Regena says:

    Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when
    I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using
    WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, good blog!

  17. Demetra says:

    hello!,I love your writing very much! share we be in contact more approximately your post on AOL?
    I require an expert on this area to solve my problem.

    Maybe that is you! Looking forward to peer you.

  18. Vera says:

    Thanks for your write-up. Another point is that being photographer
    entails not only problem in capturing award-winning
    photographs and also hardships in getting the best photographic camera
    suited to your requirements and most especially challenges in maintaining the grade of
    your camera. It is very correct and clear for those
    professional photographers that are straight into capturing a nature’s engaging scenes – the mountains, the forests, the particular wild or the seas. Going to these exciting places certainly requires a digicam that can live up to the wild’s harsh area.

  19. Tod says:

    Thanks for the new things you have revealed in your article.
    One thing I would really like to touch upon is that FSBO connections are built after some time.

    By releasing yourself to owners the first end of the week their
    FSBO can be announced, ahead of the masses start calling on
    Friday, you develop a good link. By mailing them instruments,
    educational resources, free reports, and forms, you become a good ally.
    By subtracting a personal fascination with them plus their
    circumstance, you create a solid relationship that, in many cases, pays off in the event the
    owners decide to go with a broker they know plus trust preferably you actually.

    Great – I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your site.
    I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly
    easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all.
    Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for
    those who add forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate.

    Nice task..

  21. Dorothy says:

    Excellent web site. Plenty of useful information here.
    I’m sending it to a few buddies ans also sharing in delicious.
    And of course, thank you on your effort!

  22. Tonja says:

    Thanks for the useful information on credit repair on this excellent web-site.
    A few things i would offer as advice to people will be to give up the
    actual mentality they will buy at this point and shell out later.
    As being a society we tend to make this happen for many things.
    This includes trips, furniture, in addition to
    items we really want to have. However, you have to
    separate the wants from the needs. While you’re working to raise your credit ranking score you really have to make some trade-offs. For example you’ll be able
    to shop online to save cash or you can turn to second hand retailers instead of highly-priced department stores to get clothing.

    “and toward being a member of the community of nations. ”

    I cannot sign this otherwise appropriate letter to the megalomaniac-in-chief.
    The above excerpt should be the warning to all and sundry that this is yet another attempt to steer the american public into accepting the UN and the “One World Government” model of tyranny.

    Each nation should be its own individual sovereign entity and responsible to its citizens.

    IF YOU don’t stand and resist tyranny who can you blame when it is thrust upon you?
