Can you quote where it says it, Jayhawk? I've already proven you a liar once, lets go for a second time. This "concurrence" idea you have, where is it in your little red, I mean little leather book? The rest of your post is an LSD induced hallucination.
The idea the President can wage war without the consent of the people is the ranting of a crazed fascist. Get some help.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
