Another Undeclared War
By James Wilson


Quote of the Day: ‎"The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation." - Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, 2007

I sent the following letter to Congress this morning.

The President has gone to war with Libya, WITHOUT a declaration from Congress. He has violated the Constitution and his oath of office.

He has not only broken the law, he is also creating new enemies for me. Here we are again, attacking another Muslim state. This will inflame fanatical minds throughout the region, recruit new terrorists, and make me less safe.

And here we are again spending more money we don't have on a military adventure with no clear goal. We could even end up leaving Qaddafi in power, or opposing those who replace him. This is insane.

I withdraw my consent to be governed in this way. I demand that you restrain President Obama. Please introduce legislation requiring him to withdraw our forces from combat in Libya. Only Congress can start wars. I demand that you finish this one, NOW.
