23. It is either a vote for change, or a vote for the same old politics that have brought us to where we
are.

That someone should be rewarded for voting for the IWR is beyond me. The excuse that I was misled doesn't cut it. Everyone who knew the folly of Viet Nam knew the War Powers Act was what held the executive branch in check for undeclared wars.

What the IWR did is over-rule the War Powers Act, and remove Congressional oversight of that war off the executive branch

The Iraq war is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, and is the reason energy and food prices have hurt people so much

A vote for that war is unforgivable
