    The subject at hand!
    “Congress could end Obama’s wars”
    And yet no one seems to hit the subject going on and on about nothing. Though some points are creditable, but we are missing the point. It’s not Obama’s war as that of it being Bush’s, just as Kosovo wasn’t Clinton’s war, and so on. So let us look into our CONSTITUTION; of the powers at bay have along with their limits of power.
    At the end I have more to say on the fact.
    Article I – The Legislative Branch Note
    Section 1 – The Legislature
    All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
    Section 2 – The House
    The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.
    No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.
    (Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.) (The previous sentence in parentheses was modified by the 14th Amendment, section 2.) The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct. The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made, the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to chuse three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations one, Connecticut five, New York six, New Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five and Georgia three.
    When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies.
    The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
    Section 3 – The Senate
    The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, (chosen by the Legislature thereof,) (The preceding words in parentheses superseded by 17th Amendment, section 1.) for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.
    Immediately after they shall be assembled in Consequence of the first Election, they shall be divided as equally as may be into three Classes. The Seats of the Senators of the first Class shall be vacated at the Expiration of the second Year, of the second Class at the Expiration of the fourth Year, and of the third Class at the Expiration of the sixth Year, so that one third may be chosen every second Year; (and if Vacancies happen by Resignation, or otherwise, during the Recess of the Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make temporary Appointments until the next Meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such Vacancies.) (The preceding words in parentheses were superseded by the 17th Amendment, section 2.)
    No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.
    The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.
    The Senate shall chuse their other Officers, and also a President pro tempore, in the absence of the Vice President, or when he shall exercise the Office of President of the United States.
    The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
    Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
    The above is to show how this group works. The part below is to show their power and their limits to power.
    Section 8 – Powers of Congress

    To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; And
    To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
    Section 9 – Limits on Congress

And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President.

    The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

    ________________________________________

    Unless I misread or misunderstood this, it says nothing to the fact that our President makes wars or keeps the funding for wars.
    It is our CONGRESS who sets such stage for war and keeps it going. Now however once in said a conflict or war; yes our president can at any time pull us back to the states. Yet we focus on Iraq and Afghanistan alone. What about Korea, well that’s heating up again and we can thank the UN for the post and pre Korean War? Then we have troops in Kosovo, Africa and other places. Yet there is little or not talk about these soldiers coming home. And these said places where our soldiers are; it’s no secret. So instead of thinking that one person has unlimited power. This would be a dictatorship not that of a democracy which leads to a dictatorship, which we are neither; A REPBUBLIC WE ARE. REPBUBLIC!
    Educate yourself!
    The people shall not fear their Government; Government shall fear their people.
    But wait there is more.
    Article III – The Judicial Branch Note

    He’s one of the few members of cONGRESS that can spell the word Constitution. The first sign of a third world country is the selective enforcement of it’s laws. Enron, Wall Street, BP can get away with felony after felony. But, the poor shmuck printing $20’s in the basement goes directly to jail… FedGov.Inc (note domain suffix) is naked shorting us into third world status. We’re gonna hafta save ourselves.

    I’m sure the majority of public agree with what Paul is saying and would probably cast their vote for him. Unfortunately voting for your favored candidate is not how this system works. Politicians in both political parties are bought and paid for, your vote doesn’t mean a thing. Make no mistake about it this system IS a dictatorship.

    As Orson Scott Card, a novelist wrote in 1951: “If pigs could vote, the man with the slop bucket would be elected swineherd every time, no matter how much slaughtering he did on the side.” Unfortunately, our soldiers who are being slaughtered, are not asked whether they want to go to war, for the meager salary involved, as I found out when I served as Advisory Team Leader in Vietnam.

    Obama can’t stop something he isn’t in control of. The president doesn’t run this country. The banks run this country not to mention the rest of the world. Obama is just a pawn piece in a calculated chess game. He just a puppet just like every other president. Any president that doesn’t comply gets executed.

    How and why would Congress end Obama’s wars?

    The majority across both supposed sides of the aisle in DC…the RCC
    On the Supreme Court…6-3 RCC.
    On Presidential Cabinets since the late 50’s…majority RCC.

    Obama has been very busy seeding RC’s in key positions, just as Bush did, and past Presidents have. Praemunire, the insertion of govt within govt to the benefit of papal process and at the expense of liberty.

    DC serves Rome…not the States…or base liberty anywhere.

      A neocon called George Bush who Ron Paul harped against the whole time he was in office, especially when he was promoting preventive war.

      Now, he’s harping against a socialist called Obama the whole time he’s been in office, especially when he is promoting preventive war.

      Preventive war (definition): give me all your oil.

    “Ron Paul: Congress Could End Obama’s Wars”

    I am sorry Dr. Paul for losing hope but….

    If Obama, a top high ranking figure in this country is a puppet, what can I except from congressmen?
    Did congress voted to audit the Federal Reserve? 198 Yea or 229 Nay
    What do we think they would vote for Obama’s war? Yea or Nay? I will expect the same number 198-229

    We all know that the congress is bought and paid by the foreign banks, If they ever happen to vote Yea to end Obama’s wars, they would lose that extra paycheck for sure. The congressmen won’t let that happened on their watch.

    On a recent Peter Schiff video I stated in my comment that “Schiff and Paul were wrong about history, economics and political reality”. I was promptly banned. I am not going to comment further on this point, but I wonder if Ron Paul also agrees with limiting free speech and other/different ideas. Being banned was a shock to me because I had (I guess) a false idea that libertarians were champions of free speech.

    It is unfortunate that in today’s Department of Defense, “classified” = “covering up failure”. They wonder why they have lost credibility with the American people, but everytime the American people find out what’s been classified as something “secret” or “top secret” it often has nothing to do with saving lives so much as it does saving some high ranking dolt’s career or saving face.

    Some classic examples of this kind of cover up include the Advanced Tactical Fighter program, where out of three airplane options the worst of the three was chosen, the airplane that became the F-22. The F-23 was a better option, but some of its strengths that were demonstrated late in the prototype evaluation were not considered in the competition. In fact, they were classified and covered up, and a phoney story was concocted to discredit the performance of the YF-23 prototype. Even at that, there are those who hold that Grumman’s version of the ATF that never left the drawing board was even better than either of the 2 prototypes. We’ll never know because the General in charge of the program made a brainless edict that took that airplane out of the running. Now the performance predicted by the Grumman engineers for that plane, even it’s shape are all classified.

    The airplane rumored to be the Aurora that was supposed to replace the SR-71 was a failure. You can’t know why or how much was spent because all that information was classified. Much of the aerodynamics that made the SR-71 successful are classified and thus these features have not been used on follow on aircraft such as the F-22, which is much of why it is such a poor performing airplane compared to what it could have been. You’ll never know that because all this information is classified. Who are they really saving?

    Ron Paul is losing friends in Congress…its unfortunate that he wont even be elected after the machine gets to him. Remember, Obama had good intentions, then the machine got to him too. Ron Paul should flat out run as an independent, so he can stay away from the ‘strategists’ who will eventually destroy his goals and turn him into another typical president

    I agree with everything except that the wars are Obama’s doing. They were Bush’s wars. Obama didn’t end the wars but he never promised that he would. He pandered to the defense industry and lost.

      I agree with you that he didn’t promised to end it. As matter of fact he said he would send more of our boys and girls to Afghanistan. He also stated that he would pull troops from Iraq in 16 months.

      We have to ask ourselves some serious questions related to Afghanistan

      1- what did we achieve in the last 9 years in Afghanistan?

      The answer is nothing. we kicked the so called Jihadist Taliban (US version of Islamic fighters) which we promoted and created them back in the 80s indirectly via Pakistan against Russian in Afghanistan. Back then we called them the “mohajadeen” The freedom fighters.

      Now we installed another (US version of Islamic) government that is far more dangerous to peace and prosperity in the region then the pathetic Taliban.

      Osama Bin Laden killed 3000 people in New York but the current drug issue that propped up ever since our invasion of Afghanistan, the Russian are losing 30,000 people due to Afghanistan drugs – PER YEAR THAT IS.

      So if US has the right to respond to Bin Laden in Afghanistan, Don’t you think the Russian should invade that country and treat the US like Osama Bin Laden and kick them out of Afghanistan?

      Basically the Nato is in charge of Afghanistan just like Bin Laden was in charge of Afghanistan. If we have the right to fight for our loved one and innocent one in New York, Why shouldn’t the Russian fight for their kids that are dying to Afghanistanies Drugs?

      You can check on some archived news from any source that when the pathetic Taliban was running that country, They almost eradicated the drug issue completely but ever since the US invasion, the drug flourished the region.

      The Iranian has complained to UN. The Russian Complained to UN because of the Afghanistani drug flow to their country.

      SO, If nothing was done right nothing will be done right – It is time to bring our boys and girls back home and keep them away from harm way.

      RON PAUL 2012

    Ron Paul- A Right to Many Wrongs
    We DO need him, and WE the people need to support the shit out of him and help him to continue to lead us. Come 2012, we must put him above the rest, where he belongs, and work with him to restore our own dignity as a nation. We need to see how much politics has effed up and hurt this country more than it has helped it.
    We are strong together, and I truly believe we can collectively change the ways we live here on earth, for the better. Who agrees with me?

    Hey citizens,
    American has the best friends MONEY CAN BUY,
    Yep, we can count on they’re friendship as far as we can throw them, sure nuf!

    Dr Paul is correct that if we were a little more selective on who we try to buy, we might actually have a halfway realistic foreign policy. As it is now we throw money around like it was cow manure dropped from a helicopter.

    The time is fast approaching when $100 USD will be used primarily as kindling to ignite yak dung overseas and toilet paper here at home.

    Obama’s Afgan war is a miserable half heart attempt to “appear” to be politically tough, while here at home B. Hussein O. does everything he can to promote Islam, just short of an outright conversion and flying the Muslim flag on the white house lawn.
    I swear this man Obama is priming the fuse in the powder magazine below the deck of the Constitution and fiddling with matches.

    Just smile and wait for the flash… BOOM!

    What I love about Ron Paul is that this man INSPIRES loyalty, by being truthful, constitutional, sensible, and principled. Our current leadership attempts to manipulate people into loyalty. “An army of inspired soldiers always wins against an army of manipulated soldiers.”
