Commander in Cheif

That is the title given to the president of the United States. That title reflects the primary and fundamental duty of the presidency. It is the primary duty because if the United States is not protected and defended from our enemies then we will fall.

It is, therefore, troubling and more than troubling to see that Mr. Obama has ceded the command of the United States military to a foreign entity. Some may argue that NATO is part of the United States. Unless they can show anything that proves that NATO is under the legal authority of the United States, then NATO is a foreign entity.

For Mr. Obama to have ceded the command of the United States military to a foreign entity is a grave breach of faith with the American people, a betrayal of our military, and a violation of his oath of office.

Our military is made up of free men and women who have chosen, voluntarily, to give up many of their constitutional rights to be allowed to protect and defend this nation. To protect and defend this nation. Not to protect and defend the world. Not to be put under the command of a foreign entity. But to serve, protect and defend this nation.

If Mr. Obama is willing to cede the primary, fundamental duty of the office of the president of the United States of America, that of Commander in Chief, then he is unfit to perform any of the other duties of the presidency. Because he has done this, ceded the command of the military, for the first time in American history, Mr. Obama must be impeached and removed from office.

Call your senators and representatives in the United States Congress and let them know how you feel about this.

"If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth." ~ Num 30:2

One more reason to call for impeachment:

I had read that article when it came out and agreed with it then. Yet, not one of the members of the 111th Congress brought those charges. (One of the reasons I am less than enthusiastic about the possibility of Michelle Bachmann running for president in 2012.)

I have called every single WI legislator in DC in the last week,(along with a few who are not WI legislators)to call for them to impeach and remove Mr. Obama.

So far, nothing, I know it takes time, but when I called back our senators to see if they were taking any action, they seemed surprised that I wanted to know. I did ask for a written response, so I'll see what they send, but I am not hopeful.
