In 2002, Congress authorized President Bush to invade Iraq without declaring war. Any representative who voted in favor of this measure should have been ejected from office immediately. To attack a nation without just cause has to be among the highest atrocities that can be committed by a government. Thousands upon thousands of human lives have been stamped out because of this obscene abuse of power.

I am vehemently opposed to risking the lives of our soldiers in any military conflict where the United States is not directly threatened. If I had my way, we'd be bringing the troops home tomorrow. No phased withdrawal, no timetable, no nothing. We would just pick up and go- no amount of foreign nation-building, no matter how positive it sounds, is worth the life of any American soldier. We have problems on our own shores more deserving of our attention.
