From local sources

Demonstrators were outside the Jasper and Huntingburg post offices this morning passing out literature and protesting President Barack Obama. They said they planned to be there most of the day.

The group represented Virginia-based LaRouche political action committee, named after political activist Lyndon LaRouche.

At the Jasper site, an “Impeach Obama” sign was staked at the street corner. Another sign said “Pull Over — Dump Obama.” Alan Egre and Carolyn Johnson, both of Detroit, sat at a table where passersby could pick up free literature. Egre said other demonstrations have taken place in Seymour and Kentucky.

LaRouche PAC has three platforms, according to its website. One is to impeach the president.

The second is to reinstate former president Franklin Roosevelt’s Glass-Steagall Act, which was part of the Banking Act of 1933; Indiana is one of 16 with resolutions to do such.

The third platform is to enact a water and power alliance and a credit system that could be used to determine which actions and projects would be a more productive state of economic activity.
