    Exclamation Rand SLAMS Trump on Syria bombing

    Released just a few minutes ago:


    Sen. Rand Paul Releases Statement on U.S. Cruise Missile Strike

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, U.S. Senator Rand Paul released the following statement regarding the United States’ strike on a Syrian military airfield:

    "While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked. The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate. Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different."

    I don't think that constitutes "SLAMS," but I do hope Rand Paul, who seems to have a good relationship with the President, can get his ear on this.

    He needs to make a big stink tomorrow before they leave DC.

    Demand that they stay to debate repealing the 2001 AUMF.

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "The monarch is a responsible person. The fact that a monarch is responsible "to God alone," rather than to an assembly or a popular majority, is rather shocking to an agnostic mind; but while God cannot be fooled, the masses can. While it is perhaps true that "one cannot fool all the people all the time," it seems one can fool millions for centuries."

    -Ibid.

    Trump don't need no stinkin' declaration of war. Just like all of the past Presidents that set the precedent.

    This is the sad truth. There is no rule of law.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    Rand is right. I think there's still a small chance to turn this around, unlike the zero percent chance there would've been with Hillary launching a similar attack. But it's going to take a lot of luck for Rand and other non-interventionists to get his ear, plus public pressure to make him listen.

    In the heat of last night . . . after the McCain-Lindshey statement and the blinketity-blinking Marco Rubio interviewed in the Capitol Rotunda -
    the newscaster mentioned some are against this - "Paul Rand" mentioned first.

    What's worse is that Congress already spoke on Syria and REFUSED to authorize Obama's request for military action. Trump didn't even bother.

    And if our reps are to be believed, when it came up before, the American people flooded the phone lines of Congress and were adamantly against action in Syria. Would these new videos have changed our minds??? Who knows? Because Trump didn't bother to ask us.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the strike "appears to be a proportional response" to Tuesday's attack,
    while Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) praised Trump for taking decisive action.

    The Trump administration said the strike was a one-off, but some lawmakers said Trump already had violated the Constitution
    .
    "While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tweeted.
    "The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution."
