Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

...There was also gneral agreement that Congress could not reject the President's requested resolution without giving an impression of disunity and nonsupport that did not, in fact, exist.

There was no support for the thesis on which Senators Morse and Gruening based their opposition- that the resolution was "unconstitutional" because it was "a predatead declaration of war power" reserved to Congress.

Nevertheless, many members said the President did not need the resolution because he had the power as Commander in Chief to order United States forces to repel attacks.

Several members thought the language of the resolution was unnecessarily broad and they were apprehensive that it would be interpreted as giving Congressional support for direct participation by United States troops...

Figure it out?

Today, August 7, in the year 1964, Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the "Gulf of Tonkin" resolution taking our country to war against North Viet Nam.

It would be 10 bloody years before common sense intervened and we pulled out, maimed and beaten. Leaving behind massive slaughter of the humanity, Agent Orange defoliant that still denudes the forest floor and may do so for another 500 years, and a mass migration of the poor and hungry of Viet Nam to the shores of America.
