HARRISON, N.Y. - Pedestrian traffic along Halstead Avenue was a little different on Tuesday afternoon. Locals were asked as they entered and exited the Harrison post office by political organizers if they were ready to help impeach United States President Barack Obama.
"We're here to help save the republic," organizer Chris Sare of Hackensack, N.J. said.
Sare and another political organizer stood beside a table full of pamphlets and posters promoting the LaRouche Political Action Committee and calling for the impeachment of the president.
The group stood outside of the local post office to collect signatures, email addresses and phone numbers to assist a grass roots movement courtesy of Lyndon LaRouche.
The Harrison visit was one of an ongoing tour of the metropolitan area, Sare said. As a resident of New Jersey, Sare said he was able to reach different areas throughout the region and spends a day in different towns across New York.
"We've received a good response out here today," Sare said. "A lot of people have been receptive to what we have to say."
The booth included several calls to impeach the president and images of endorsed political candidates, promoted political issues, and shopped images of Obama with an Adolf Hitler mustache.
The LaRouche PAC is an international political movement that works to promote LaRouche's political ideas and ambitions.
