By DAN HIRSCHHORN | Politico

Ron Paul said Monday that President Barack Obama’s targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki might be an impeachable offense.

Asked at a Manchester, N.H. town hall meeting about last week’s killing of the American-born Al Qaeda leader, the Texas congressman said impeachment would be “possible,” but that he wants to know more about how the administration “flouted the law.”

I was way ahead of the curve on this one...

Proof is here.

Yeah... I'm on the forefront of this thing. Let's hammer it PATRIOTS!

Somewhere there are men planning the next destructive and evil ploy to make this world their own... The common man is not part of that plan as we would see fit... Merely pawns to be used against one another.

As presidential contender...

Ron has got Obombya by the short hairs. Obombya has left Ron with hundreds of questions on the tyranical, usurpations, and dictatorial actions by this out of control president. It is like he has a disease of the mind. Ron will rake this fellow over the coals (if Obombya makes it that far).

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I have one word for you...predator drones. Oh, you think I'm kidding?" Obombya

All I can say is I'm

All I can say is I'm ecstatic. I almost lost my faith, but the old man didn't let me down.

Sad to say, this is the first

Sad to say, this is the first article about Ron Paul on the front page.

Edit: Wait, Ron Paul is now in third place on his own forum.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

In his third day in office, I called for Obama's impeachment...

... on the Randi Rhodes show. On that day, he use drones to drop bombs in Pakistan killing innocent civilians. I called him a war criminal, just like Bush. She didn't like what I had to say... but that's to be expected from a liberal gate keeper.

I'm glad everyone catching up. :)

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson
For all Americans who turn their backs and remain silent while the Government kills its on citizens. Who will remain silent while your liberties are being violated. I rest my case.

His chance of impeachment is greater under "Fast and Furious"

In fact it's a slam dunk !

Obama is directly responsible for the deaths of 2 federal agents, on US soil, as a result of operation "fast and furious"

"Fast and Furious" could not have been authorized without Obama's approval.

Why has no-one figured this out !!@#$!@#$%@#$???

A Pleasant October Surprise

Ron Paul has certainly proved he can pull one off, in the Obama vs. Paul scenario, in 2012.

RP

If RP was to initiate this measure if there were sound evidence to proceed, he would gain tons and tons and tons of support imo. This is the stuff what Champions are made of. Go RP !! :D

More and More Neo-Cons would be flocking to RP then along with principled progressives !!

p.s. Would a Sheriff of a county be able to arrest an impeachment suspect once he left DC and stepped into a county anywhere in the United States?

He won't do it for brownie

He won't do it for brownie points to get elected, he'll do it because it's right. Obama's a confessed murderer with a "hit list" of many more, some of whom also may be American citizens. He can't be allowed to simply declare any American citizen he wants a terrorist and kill him without any evidence or charges filed. He's out of control and he needs to be locked away. Even Bush didn't sink to that depth; if he did, at least he was smart enough not to brag about it on national television.

And yes, contrary to my own long standing misled belief, the president has no immunity whatsoever to arrest or prosecution. If an indictment was handed down and an arrest warrant was issued, the Secret Service would take him into custody and have the luxury of standing guard in front of his federal holding cell.

obama isnt good for america....

i did a search on "impeach obama" a coupla months ago, found and signed a couple of petitions for impeachment. dont know what else to do. but we have got to get rid of our corrupt president and all their crony pals in office. starting at the top till you get all the way to honest government, by the people and for the people! there is so much crime and corruption in politics! its all about money and power.laws are being broken, our government is not above the law! how many of our elected represenatives have grabbed a copy of our constitution as soon as they found out the roll was empty? plenty!
i bet sarah palin was right, the crime and corupption we are starting to hear about is just the tip of the iceberg.heres the ones that concern me, and i bet theres more.....

operation gunrunner
fast and furious operation
16 trillion dollars sent to other countries over the last coupla years by the fed
cocaine allowed by OUR government to be trucked over the border, by the simolan cartel, in exchange for info on the OTHER cartels.....

guys an gals, its gonna be a rough year or two ahead of us. thats why we just GOTTA get ron in the white house! even with him as pres, its gonna be rough. but with him, we have a chance to save our country! remember, he's bringin' a bushel basket of common sense! something a lot of our other politicians lost long ago, replacing it with extreme greed.

i truly believe that ron paul is our last and only hope we have to save our country.

peace.

impeach obama, fire biden, president ron paul, 2011 !!!

ron in 12!

I have no doubt Obama has

I have no doubt Obama has committed several impeachable offenses but the reality is he is untouchable as long as he is the POTUS. Who is going to arrest him? He is over the Military, all Federal Law Enforcement, and the Courts. Yes, he has the power of a dictator. The next President will have the power to bring him to justice. I doubt that will happen. Obama has one to five years left in office unless he decides to stay longer, that is the reality the way things stand today. We must get Ron Paul elected if we want to change the status quo in Washington.

Impeach does not mean arrest. Try this:

Have you read this column by Paul Craig Roberts? It is depressing because it is the truth laid bare.

Excellent article, it is dead on. The collapsing dollar may play a major role in changing the status quo. The masses will not wake up and fight for change until their very existance is in jeopardy.

The Constitution was made soley for a moral people. When the people cease to be moral, the constitution is of no effect.

We have allowed ourselves to be over taxed and over regulated. The founders would be ashamed with what we have put up with.

Ron Paul response in the debates

I would love to see Ron Paul respond to any questions on the subject by re-framing something like this:

"What if the president were to address the nation with the following...
I the president of the United States come to you to ask for expanded powers to keep you safe. These powers are the same powers that many dictators around the world enjoy; however, I assure you I am no dictator and will use the powers responsibly. I need the authority to kill any American citizen who I determine may be threat to your safety. I promise you I will not abuse this authority.
So I ask you, do any of you find that disturbing. If you do I believe you are on my side of this issue and understand why I as well am deeply concerned"

given this Occupant of the White House's record...

It should be blindingly obvious.

I Promise You ? ? ?

This guy has broken every promise he ever made before he was elected your President !
What makes you think he'll keep any pre election promise now ?

Reminds me of Palpatine from Star Wars...

Give ole Palpsy credit; at

Give ole Palpsy credit; at least he pretended to care about the republic, unlike Obama who crowns himself king on a daily basis.

And when you think about it, all he really did was overthrow a bunch of government funded socialist religious zealots who ran around the galaxy taking it upon themselves to kill people without any due process.. well that and a wickedly corrupt senate, so he could bring peace, freedom, justice, and security to his new empire.

Join me and together we will bring order to the galaxy. You don't know the power of the dark side!!!

Yes, that was implied but not

Yes, that was implied but not stated. I think it makes the point as is. You can't trust anyone with these powers. I think the majority of the people would cringe at the thought to hear a president actually state those words. Of course, this is what Obama just did without stating it. I think it needs to be stated in this way to get people to think about the consequences, because too many people seem to be caught up in the idea that the ends justifies the means.
