Just in case we have all forgotten, the president is supposed to ask permission to declare war, and that’s what legally Congress has the authority to grant. What the president is actually asking and Congress is considering is asking for permission to commit an act of terrorism.
If either the president and Congress were representing the American voter rather than the Pentagon and corporations, the Congress would vote no and the president would not use military force. So this will be an opportunity to see if we still live in a democracy or a fascist country.
Do you want your tax dollars spent on an illegal war or on our economy and our domestic issues? The big question is do our representatives represent the American voter or the Pentagon and corporations?
