I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
But I bet none of them had any problems with the outright lies the Bush administration used to invade Iraq nor any problems with the amount of Americans killed as a result of their lies. Nor do they seemingly have any issues with the 6.6 billion tax payer dollars stolen in Iraq. Nope, the #1 killer of Americans over the past decade is living peacefully in Crawford, Texas. The #2 killer, Bin Laden was not so lucky!
It needs to be scrapped and redone.
It should not be the case that we can be at war for years and years under the auspices of the WPA. That's not what the intent of the things were and it circumvents the vital checks on the PotUS's powers.
I may be wrong.
The idea that Congress is some sort of moralistic balance on the PoTUS' powers is fallacious. Congress will go to war if it makes them richer and they can spin it into a good thing in the eyes of the American Public, whether or not it's actually good for the rest of America.
Congress is corrupt.
I think the Bush Administration and the Congress while he was in power proved that.
War, actual war, is something that should be voted upon by the American People, just like the election for President.

My point is that you say 'after he gets Congress' approval'. Like Congress approving a war automatically makes the war a justified one, a good one, one that is for the best of America and the American People.
This isn't so.
My point was sarcasm. The 'War on Terror' was terrible for America and for the American People. The only people it really benefited for a surety were the military-industrial complex and politicians with ties to said military-industrial complex.
That was my point.
