I am not interested in liberal nor conserative talking points. and Americans only objective should be to ensure those who take the Oath of office uphold that law, and the other laws of this land, that they are not violated by those in power, (by the way; the oath of office is a US Code, violating it is a violation of the US Code- it is therefore a crime called perjury).
John Kerry, John McCain, Nancy Pelosi, Lindsey Graham, Hillary Clinton, the New York Times and the French Government all support this attack. Constitutionalist understand what’s wrong with that picture.
It is obvious as the nose on ones face. They are all the same rotting fruit falling from the same tree.
In accordance to the Powers of War Act 1973, this administration has clearly committed war crimes by launching an attack on a sovereign country that posed no threat to the US and who did not properly address Congress, other than sending them a "letter" . This action It is not only a violation of the Constitution. It also subverts the very laws that were passed to preserve and prevent such actions from occuring. A person usurping too much power away from the People and Congress.
Though Bush did go to Congress, all he obtaines was an "Authorization for the Use of Military Force", rather than a declaration of war. He cited Section 4 of the POWA which gave him 60-90 days to complete the mission. 7 years later we were still involved in Iraq, (Not quite Constitutional I would say), but better than nothing, At least Mr. Bush did go before Congress. Not to say the Iraq War didn't violate the law, but still when Mr. Bush cited section 4 of the Powers of War Act. If memory serves correctly. This gave him 60-90 days to complete the mission. And after that time expired, he was then acting in violation of the Powers of War ACT, until congress decided to pass a resolution to extend the time of our military involvment. Yet he never gave an accurate exit strategy. And that little photo op "Mission Accomplished" was nothing more than subversion of the definition for use of military forces. The entire administration, in my opinion should have been charged with war crimes by Congress. They falsified records, lied before the UN Counsel, and lied to Congress with the doctored letters that did not show the facts that Saddam Did NOT pose an imminent threat to the US. In violation of Section 2 of the Powers of Wars Act. Just as Obama has clearly done in the illegal use of US military and its equipment against a sovereign country that has not posed an imminent threat of attack against the US.
Despite having a crushing $14 Trillion national debt, and Congress even thinking about raising the debt ceiling, with a $1.5 Trillion annual budget deficit, and a dire 15.9% unemployment rate (using the real but still underestimated u6 rate); the financial drain to help Japan, Obama committed America to yet another war in the Muslim world. Our military and national budget are already stretched to the limit and all he seems to think about is playing with military ordinances which goes completely against the very campaign he ran on to be elected.
Perhaps the Nobel Peace Priz Committee should also consider giving Obama another Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences since he’s driving the U.S. into insolvency.
John Kerry, John McCain, Nancy Pelosi, Lindsey Graham, Hillary Clinton, the New York Times and the French Government all support this duplicitous attack. Conservatives understand what’s wrong with that picture.
The Constitution Party of Delaware openly opposes
America’s involvement in yet another war during these dire economic times. Benjamin Harrison a signer of the Declaration of Independence once said that we are not to be the Police of the world. This includes meddling in a civil war of an Arab country that has little strategic value and for which Congress was not officially consulted.
Benjamin Harrison stated that America serves the world best not as a policeman (or benefactor), but rather as a beacon of hope, liberty and that comes only through the knowledge of Who Christ Jesus is.
None of those missiles and none of those coalition jet pilots will be able to discern the difference between pro-Gadhafi civilians or anti-Gadhafi civilians since they all have weapons. We have no real idea who the rebels are or their true political agenda; some even having ties to Al Qaeda. Obama like his predicessor has no clear objective, no clear definition of victory and no clear exit strategy .
Former first lady Laura Bush Recently, went public with a plea that foreign aid be spared in pending budget cuts. Here is the reason why I oppose republicrats. her lavish banquets and hobnobbing does not qualify her to be statesman (woman) anymore than visiting the NASA Center makes her an astrophysicist.
Like many political insiders, and make no mistake Mrs Bush, you are one, you like the others with a D or R behind your name find it easy to give away other people's money. We should remember, the money we give to foreign lands is borrowed, and to be paid back by future generations with interest. Also, let American voters not forget, contributions to foreign beneficiaries by no means is voluntary - They are forcefully collected through taxes.
As Congressman David Crockett once said Mrs. Bush, It is not yours to give. feel free to donate all the money you wish to your worthy mission...
"Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week's pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks."
