We're in for a wild ride. Exponentially accelerating technological, cultural, and socioeconomic evolution means that every year will see more developments than the previous one. More change will happen between now and 2050 than during all of humanity's past. Let's explore the 21st century and ride this historic wave of planetary transition with a confident open mind.

Impeach President Obama

The Constitution, Article II, Section 4:  
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

It has become clear that the federal government has lost legitimacy. Mass scale impeachments (and/or Egypt style calls for resignation via mass strikes) should be pushed for immediately. Let's detail why the first to go should be the president of the United States.

President Barack Obama guilty of:

1) Multiple counts of mass torture, accessory to torture, and reckless endangerment

- Knowing full well that United States possesses the technology and transportation/distribution systems to supply healthy food to all the citizens, Obama still has not pushed to end the practice of paying farmers not to grow and still has not pushed to supply food to the starving (50 million people, 1 in 6 of Americans in 2008, it appears to be getting worse now even by major rail hubs)

- Knowing full well that overcrowding is unsafe and leads to higher instances of torture such as rape, Obama still has not pushed to end the drug prohibition that feeds the 2 million+ prisoner gulag system (as well as pushing to release those prisoners doing time for consensual acts)

- Knowing full well that the large scale military aggression abroad leads to painful mutilations of thousands of soldiers, Obama still has not pushed to withdraw thousands of Americans out of harms way

- Knowing full well that United States can cover everybody with decent healthcare via expansion of Medicare for all, Obama still has not pushed to provide relief to chronic bodily pain and distress that millions of uninsured suffer from

- Knowing full well United States possesses the technological and logistical ability to construct decent shelter for everybody, knowing full well that homeless and dispossessed face greater risk from exposure to elements and crime, Obama still did not push to end homelessness (as millions of houses in the country stand empty, foreclosed, and/or facing foreclosure)

2) Multiple counts of bribery

- Knowing full well that the "lobbyist" system within United States is legalized and structured bribery, Obama still has not pushed to end it and to use the executive to begin mass arrests of all involved in the "lobbying" bribery system

- Knowing full well he is taking bribes, Obama has still taken millions of dollars of them, often directly meeting with those bribing him or their agents

3) Multiple counts of theft and accessory to theft

- Knowing full well the financial bailout will transfer billions of dollars abroad to European banks, Obama still has not stopped the process and actually expediated the looting

- Knowing full well the Ponzi scheme fraudulent nature of the financial sector, Obama still did not push for mass arrests, has actually provided public cover for the thieves, and has allowed their agents into his cabinet

4) Multiple counts of mass homicide and accessory to murder

- Knowing full well that escalation of aggression in Afghanistan will lead to more civilian deaths, Obama still ordered it, much less scale back the homicide (in fact he allowed his generals to go back to heavy aerial and artillery bombardments of Afghan cities and villages, a practice that was scaled down before he took office)

- Knowing full well he got the political power to stop the death penalty in United States, Obama still allows it to continue

5) Treason

- Knowing full well that the imperial debt burden cannot ever be repaid, Obama still did not push for an inevitable default and in fact allows interest payments to foreign (potentially hostile) powers to continue (increasing the severity of the economic calamity that will afflict the nation)

- Putting the country at risk by conducting himself in a manner that makes a mockery of the office of the president and that further delegitimizes the federal center of force, namely, blatantly and speedily going back on every campaign promise

6) Lying under oath

- Having sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States, Obama still continues the drug prohibition and the "war on terror" which routinely violates (or makes obsolete) majority of the Bill of Rights

- Having sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution to the best of his ability, Obama has actually not fully tapped into the range of his ability as the nation's biggest bully pulpit (in fact this goes beyond gross incompetence into the realm of using his ability to do the opposite [see above])

2/3 of the Senate needed to convict this repugnant criminal and national backstabber

We can go on and on about various crimes of this administration (not only violating ban on assassination but actually assassinating an American citizen, Gitmo remaining open, kidnapping abroad, etc) but they are well known at this point. As their last act (before we start mass action calling for resignation and impeachment of congressmen themselves) US congress can go out with a shred of dignity and proceed to remove the oligarchy's sock puppet scumbag.
