  •  Our use of Presidential Imperialism you mean.. (1+ / 0-)

    where a President gets to make war on his own, and then, almost as an afterthought, ask Congress if its ok. The War Powers Act of 1973 is the worst piece of Reactionary-NeoFascist legislation ever enacted, and the results are now plain to see.. Perpetual War, a Standing Military 17 times larger than the top 10 nations COMBINED, a National Debt running out of contol, Lobbyists writing laws and paying for their passage, an Executive pre-chosen by the top Fortune 500 International Executives, and declining wages and standards of living for the peasants.

    Wake up, America. Its not our character flaws which are killing us, it is that insane law we live under.

    Gut the War Powers Act of 1973. Start today. Stand up for the Constitution and Human Rights. We may yet be allowed to take out Assad's Chemical Weapons use, but in any event, we will have re-established oursleves as a Government of the people, by the people and for the people.
