It has never seemed to matter to Congress that the erosion of States Rights and the disregard of the 10th amendment have crippled this countries' power to be fully self reliant, self governing, and truly free. I wonder how they feel today, knowing that they too, now have no real authority in matters of self defense and warfare?
In my opinion, this is only one of the reasons why the media and political downplay of US Republican Presidential candidate, Ron Paul, is so vicious and relentless. Ron Paul is a US Constitutionalist - were he to be elected to the White House, his strict Constitutional policies would surely interfere with US/International plans.
But it is not only Ron Paul. Anyone who is a supporter of the US Constitution or States Rights is disregarded and ultimately dragged through the mud by media if they dare take a legal or political stand.
However, Rep. Walter Jones, North Carolina, has taken a stand. On March 7th, he introduced H. Concurrent Resolution 107.
[Excerpt - Resolution Calls for Impeachment if Obama Does Not Seek War Authorization from Congress]
Rep. Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican, has introduced H. Concurrent Resolution 107, which calls on the House, the Senate Concurring, to prevent Obama from starting another war without authorization from Congress. The resolution was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary on March 7.[End of Quote]
Full text of Resolution 107 can be read here.
I'm not so sure that I even approve of Resolution 107 - it's hard to be sympathetic toward a Government Body who have been so neglectful of its own people and the law of its own land [the US Constitution - States Rights], instead, focusing on power, power, and more power, until finally, they are losing that power.
Congress - Europe owns you!
