I have called the offices of my congressman and senators to simply ask their view on the new war in Libya, that their party leader, our president, is taking us to. In every case, the aides said that there was no opinion forthcoming.
The word “shocking” is overused in today’s press, but what other word is there to describe a situation in which, as we begin a third war, those who are constitutionally empowered to declare war have no opinion on the subject?
We are unable to provide health care to our own people, build a modern train system, provide jobs or even educate our young. Yet we venture full throttle into yet one more war, and my representatives have no opinion.
Shocking, yet sadly not surprising
