WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A new grassroots effort is taking place at overpasses across the country in hopes of impeaching President Barack Obama.
The group, Overpasses for Obama, rallies across the country in states including Nebraska, Arizona, California, and Florida. Participants simply gather on overpasses holding signs hoping to garner some attention from vehicles that pass below.
Overpasses for Obama‘s website states the goal is “the removal of the corrupt and criminal President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama”.
Their Facebook page boasts over 34,000 likes. Pictures on Facebook show people of all ages and races participating in the overpass rallies holding signs like “honk to impeach”, or “no hope”.
Their website lists 12 reasons for wanting to impeach the president which include that he “has abdicated his responsibility to enforce the laws of the United States against illegal immigration”, “the push by Pres. Obama to pass healthcare legislation in the Congress of the United States that he was fully aware was unconstitutional”, and ”President Obama has appointed numerous people to cabinet level positions without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate, as is required by the Constitution”.
The group isn’t affiliated with any political party and claims not to be a religious movement. In the group forum on the website, rally goers can discuss and plan upcoming impeachment rally events.
A wide range of t-shirts, sweatshirts and other apparel on their website is listed for sale.
