Well, show me a crime he has committed. Not a theory based 'crime' but in the federal code of criminal statute and within the elements necessary to
prosecute the crime, show me one he's actually, literally violated. I don't know of any. I honestly don't.
Yes, we're on the same side as far as the Constitution goes. I also can relate to how powerful the feeling is to see something done or to 'do
something' for the sake of doing something. However, doing the wrong thing in the atmosphere we're entering in this nation is far worse than doing
nothing while waiting for a clear path to act...if one appears.
As far as what 'needs to be done'? I do hope you don't mean armed force of any kind. I wrote a thread on that myself awhile back. It's been quite
some time though so I don't expect many to recall it.
Calling for revolution is the worst kind of ignorance!

Armed action, for those who would consider it, may some day come. I don't know and that's my biggest point on that right now. I'm 39yrs old with no
armed forces experience. I'm not delusional. Even with all the private sector tactical training my finances could allow, I might last 5 minutes
against a well trained and proper military unit. More likely? Less than a minute. That's just flat out honest and pragmatic.
(Few outside the Vets here are better equipped..and among those, I doubt many are anything like they were while carrying a rifle and standing a post

So...What to do.... Well, I'm not sure at this moment. I suppose I'm in a holding pattern like millions of others. Another movement like Occupy
would have my energetic physical and logistical support. It may not come. A 3rd party run with a viable candidate will absolutely have my electoral
support from campaign to caucus to general election as Ron Paul's people helped show me the way to accomplish. That may not happen though.
Given what may never come? We may well be on our own to solve our problems without outsiders to save our day for us. For that? I don't even know
where we stand. Given the NSA revelations? They may well know our thoughts better than WE do. In which case, we need to assess the level and extent of
that before moving ONE STEP further on anything , lest we just casually walk into the slaughter, re-education camp or prison, whistling as we do.
I just know impeachment isn't a viable option when charges don't exist under actual, specific law to pursue it under. Without that CLEAR and
provable violation in a hostile Senate chamber? There is NO chance. As I said in my other note. Attempting that and failing is worse than not having
