Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

Surprise!! I Actually AGREE with Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)!!

King Barack Hussein Obama announced strikes on Libya today in response to Qaddafi's crackdown on anti-government forces.

Sounds okay, right? After all, George Bush did it in Iraq, right??

WRONG! This move is 100% unconstitutional! The Constitution SPECIFICALLY requires a formal declaration of war to carry out military action against a foreign country-PERIOD! Obama has NO authority to do anything without the consent of the Congress.

The fact that the United Nations--a corrupt and vile organization-- has "authorized" these strikes is all the more reason they should not be undertaken! Obama and all in Congress that support this action are COWARDS. Don't misunderstand, I am disgusted at the brutality and lunacy of Qadaffi and I wish Reagan had succeeded in taking him out in the '80's but he didn't. So have some balls, and go get an authorization if you can, otherwise stand trial for treason!

So back to the title of the post, read the link in the first sentence. Congressman Kucinich agrees with this position. I can't believe I am saying this, but I agree with Dennis Kucinich. Wow.
