133. You are being shameless here
The Constitution is not a straw man. Your assertion that I said POTUS has the power to DECLARE war is the straw man. I did not say that, which is why I said, in an earlier post "I did not say that"

both very distinct words which even common sense would accept one - WAGE - normally follows the other - DECLARE - unless perverted by our leadership - both now and ESPECIALLY in the recent (60 years) past - which i am sure you do not support.

US history shows that WAGE does not always follow DECLARE. See Truman, TR's invasion of Panama, the Korean War, and the VietNam War, amonsgt others. History shows that DECLARE usually does NOT precede WAGE
