The US Consitution is clear. Congress must declare war. The War Powers Act is an unconstitutional overreach, since the Constitution says nothing about the ablilty of Congress to give up its responsibilities.
Any President who invokes the War Powers Act to begin a war without prior Congressional approval is committing a grave moral error against the Republic. It is a moral error as great and far-reaching as the use of chemical weapons by a dictator against his own people, because innocents will die as a result. The process must run its course, or the action has no moral standing. That is democracy. I assumed you supported that when you ran for President.
Mr. Obama, those of us who are interested in a return to Constitutional government are pleading with you not to go to war merely using the War Powers Act. You must restore our former respect for our own laws and processes by submitting to Congress a resolution for war and asking for a declaration of war. Anything else submits to the defeat of Contitutional government. You have the power to restore it.
