HCR 107 is a resolution of impeachment against Obama, based on the President’s history of circumventing Congress in launching wars of aggression, as well as Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s recent testimony that Obama doesn’t require constitutional authority to wage war.
Presidential candidate Ron Paul, as well as several moderate Republicans, have signed on as cosponsors.
If progressives are at all serious about ending government by corporation and preserving the last vestiges of our Constitutional government, they need to cut the umbilical cord to the Democratic Party once and for all and support the Republicans in this effort.
HCR 107 is currently in front of the judiciary committee. We all need to lobby the Republicans on the committee (they hold the majority) to hold hearings. It will be interesting how many of them are serious about getting their boy Mitt into the White House. As I see it, this is the only strategy that gives him a shot at it. I am also curious to see what excuses I suspect some of them will give for not upholding the Constitution. We need to make sure they get well-publicized.

If you live in a Republican District, you should also contract your congressional representative and ask them to sign on as a cosponsor. Forget the Democrats. Kucinich is the only one with enough integrity to support this.
