Rand Paul Reveals that Congress Seeks to Give President ‘Unlimited’ Dictatorial Power for War

May 9, 2018 Free Thought Project 3

Rand Paul says that Congress seeks to amend the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) by handing over their power to declare war to the president. Moreover, Congress could only disapprove of war, which turns the Constitution on its head! Even worse, any resolution of disapproval could be vetoed, meaning two thirds of Congress would need to disapprove of a war, rather than a majority to approve of one.
