Skip to comments.Is It Time To Recall Congress, Impeach Obama?
Posted on 08/04/2009 10:32:10 PM PDT by mukraker
I have a simple question I'd like to ask of my fellow FReepers.
Has the time come for We, the Peiople, to recall EVERY Member of Congress? Should we then move also to IMPEACH President Barrach Hussein Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden?
Taking a look at what this bunch has done to America in the last 6 months, can We, the People, wait another 18 months for the next election?
Can America afford to wait?
If ‘we’ wouldn’t impeach a Pres for wanting Amnesty, Bailouts, etc. why would we impeach Obama? Let the charade continue, don’t ya wanna see the end of the Movie? /s
I am not sure members of congress can be recalled. Impeached yes.
This Movie Sucks!
To answer your questions, yes and yes.
I don't want to see the end of America.
In this movie, the good guys get slaughtered. And nudity is Michelle Obama...do you want this horror story???
I know here in WI we do have the ability to petition for recall of elected officials. Leads to a new election, one in which the incumbant office holder can run. If they win they stay in office.
When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
Congress people should realize that they are our representative in the fedgov... Slighty more then a sock puppet. Today, they seem not to represent the will of the people but the will of the fedgov ... Coming home for summer break to teach and inform the people of its intent
obviously, they need a lesson on their place in the system
Read the Constitution and crackpot ideas won’t be so easy to come by.
There is no recall of Congressmen. There is only one way to legally get rid of a Congressman: he can be removed by his peers in each respective House of Congress.
Now are you suggesting this crew of trained monkeys is going to throw each other out?
No, members of Congress cannot be Impeached. Only the judiciary and executive are subject to impeachment.
Yeah they can! Every two years they can. But I get your point.
Ummm..., you do know that it takes Congress (the House) to draw up Articles of Impeachment... I hope... :-)
Not being voted back in is not a “recall” such as some states have for their governors ala Grey Davis. Each two years is a new Congress.
1. There is not a recall provision for Congress so you have to wait 16 months for an election to vote out anyone you wat in the House and about a third of the Senate.
2. We can not impeach anyone. The US Constitution gives that power to the House with the trial in the Senate.
I’m all for it. IF they try to pass amnesty through, it will be time! Impeach ‘em, try ‘em, and hang the traitors who have ripped Americans off! We should impose a two term limit for a total of 8 years, and we definitely need to remove federal and USSC Justices life time appointments! That way there won’t be a chance for any of them to take us for a ride. We need to “cap” their salaries and benefits packages. Contrary to what they believe, they are no better than we are. In fact, I dare to say that most of us are better than they are. There are too many criminals in our government.
1) There is no constitutional process to recall Congress critters.
2) This current congress will NOT impeach Zero, let alone convict him.
3) You are better off buying a lottery ticket.
Ya gotta wait for an election. Thems the rules!
