An Unlikely Conversation With The Cowards in Congress

Suppose you were an idiot... And suppose you were a member of Congress...
But I repeat myself. -- Mark Twain


What shameful toads you are! Yes you, our elected lawmakers. Yes you, the folks we sent to Washington in our names. Yes you, the most spineless, cowardly and craven Congress people in history. Yes you, the most bullied, gutless and shameful herd of legislators ever elected. And you know exactly who you are.

Where in hell is your integrity? Where in hell is your self-respect? Youve been led by your submissive noses to do the bidding of liars and warmongers. Youve been suckered into applauding some of the most egregious crimes ever committed by a US government. Youve become such a pitiful collection of sniveling sycophants. And you know damn well who you are.

Whats that? You want to know what youve done? Of what odious crimes are you guilty to evoke such striking condemnation? Is that what youre asking? Is that what you really want to know? Youre joking, right? Do you want the American people to believe have no idea what this is all about? What nonsense that is.

But, for the sake of discourse, lets accept your ignorance for the moment. For starters, lets take a look at two provisions in that forgotten document, the Constitution of the United States. Perhaps their significance will ring a bell somewhere in your pathetic and paralyzed minds.

We can begin with Article 1, Section 8. Here, the Constitution clearly states that you, and only you, have the right to declare war. Did you get that? Only Congress can take on the awesome responsibility of causing death and mayhem when there is a need to go to war. Only the Congress of the United States has the Constitutional power do that. Keep that in mind as we go on.
