Could not agree more. Impeaching some random president without changing the nature of the game won't do diddly squat. Someone else will get put in his
place, someone with the same level of control ( = 0 ) over the various institutions that do as they please in the US.
Does the president control the economy ? No.
Does the president control employment levels ? No.
Does the president decide which laws get passed ? No.
Does the president control the secret services ? In theory yes, in reality they probably don't tell the white house half the things they've got going
on because there are simply too many, and the president just has to stand there and take responsability in their place when things screw-up.
Impeach him or not, nothing would change, so what's the point ? By impeaching, you're still only playing by rules that you did'nt get to write. Your
still trying to revive the same dying old system, that has allready proved countless times times that it doesn't work. Hell, it's the same system that
actually put you in this mess in the first place...
Obama shares some responsability, sure. But it's easier for most people to point at the puppet on the stage, than to question the reason for the play.
People just want someone to blame. So they blame and point and replace the puppet, and nothing ever changes.
