I feel abused.
The President should not be Impeached or hanged or any of that sorts, but you should at least be able to vent about his outrageous policies
ou have obviously never studied The Constitution either.
But then again, the People consisted of White, property-owning males when they wrote it.
Lets look at past examples in history:
This is a lie and offensive to me.
Most of the country does not understand our Constitution
Yes. In fact it is our duty.
The electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for two persons, of whom one at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves. And they shall make a list of all the persons voted for, and of the number of votes for each; which list they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates, and the votes shall then be counted. The person having the greatest number of votes shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such majority, and have an equal number of votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately choose by ballot one of them for President;
I'm probably wrong,

Got to disagree. The media favored Obama. But can you blame them. I mean the Republicans nominated John McCain. That speaks for itself. The people elected Obama because they believed in what he said, they believed it was time for change after 8 years, and the economy was pretty much stinking.
Obama deserves more credit than you give him. He worked his butt to earn what he got. Yes the media shined on him, but they wouldn't have if he had not agreed to be so available to the press.
You know what? Overthrowing The President ( any President) by violence is a very dangerous game. If you try, be aware that the rest of reserve our right to put you in the Federal Pen, or into the ground. Just so the rules are clear.
To forget is human, to forgive is divine, to enslave is government at its most basic.

SO let me ask you, why in the hell should anyone CARE what you like or don't? Too freakin bad. The shallowness of thinking like this amazes me. It's not ABOUT YOU spoiled boy!
Obam won. Game over.
Winning a Presidential election in a representative republic is not a referendum or mandate to become or be a dictator.
The democratic process is one that is comprised of debate. Debate is comprised of dissent. People for and against issues arguing the pros and cons of said issues is what comprises and constitutes said debate.
Winning office, just means winning the right to be a representative and advocate of a party, not elevation to a position of authority above all others in a dictatorial manner meant to eliminate or stifle debate or dissent.
Perhaps if you spent more time studying U.S. History, the Constitution, and the American political process instead of playing X-box, and Nintendo you wouldn’t be inclined to think that the American electoral process is a contest and game to elect a dictator?
Maybe you should actually familiarize yourself with said game, and it’s actual rules before declaring it over?

What if over 50% of the people want him out, can we do it then?
Where does it say in the Constitution that we cannot just go in there and toss people out? I believe the founding fathers knew that at any moment the people could toss out their elected officials and elect a new one.
I see nothing unconstitutional, or even unamerican about the people throwing congress and the president out on their behinds. What would be unconstitutional would be if a new leader appointed himself, rather than being elected. Am I saying I want Obama out or for people to actually do this? No, but it would be nice if we got a new congress lol
