Senate Considering Legislation to Shift War Power to 20 person Legislative Committe

Standard

I made a mini documentary that shows John McCain present the legislation and reveals the motives behind the bill. 

 

The Ron Paul Institute For Peace And Prosperity has an article out to bring awareness to this issue as well.

The Senate is considering legislation to shift the war power largely to the president and a 20-person legislative committee. The result would undermine the constitutional role of 515 other members of Congress and the duty they have to represent the interests of their constituents.

The stated purpose of S. 1939, introduced by Sens. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Angus King (I-Maine), is to repeal the War Powers Resolution of 1973 and create a procedure that allows for rapid responses to emerging threats. The bill would make matters worse by strengthening the president at the expense of Congress and representative government.

Despite the claim of S. 1939 that it is “not meant to define, circumscribe, or enhance the constitutional war powers of either the executive or legislative branch of government,” without question it substantially enhances presidential power.

The 2014 Elections are more important than 2016

Standard

Why?

Imagine Ron Paul had won the presidency…. Do you realize that congress would be treating him the same way as they do Obama?
Ron would have a hard time getting anything done.

Imagine the the congress is controlled by the (R) club. 
The House and the Senate are a majority Republican which by the way happen to be led by Tea Party….. 

If the Tea Party has that much influence Obama couldn’t stop them.

So before you get too excited about the 2016 election remember that this year is FAR more important.
