Representative Walter Jones of North Carolina has presented a resolution stating that should Barack Obama use offensive military force without the consent of Congress, this act should be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor”.

Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution delegates to Congress, alone, the power to declare war.  This element of the Constitution has been abused more and more over the years, most recently in Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.

“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations.  This led to Representative Walter Jones introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”

It’s not so much that this is a big deal or that it will actually hold any weight, but as a matter of principle, the fact that American decisions, which we are all financing with our tax dollars, are being decided collectively by the entire world rather than by those who represent our nation makes no sense.

358.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day195.
