When It Comes To War Their Is One Political Party

by | Dec 6, 2019

Are you a Republicans or Democrat?  In Washington D.C. their is no distinction when it comes to war.   Both party’s support it .

Presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, could force a House vote next week that would require President Donald Trump to withdraw the roughly 1,000 remaining US troops from Syria. But there’s just one problem — the House’s No. 2 Democrat firmly opposes her effort.

“I intend to vote no,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told Al-Monitor today. “We haven’t whipped this, but I think our members think an immediate withdrawal would not be appropriate.”

Hoyer’s opposition, coupled with a lack of buy-in from some progressive Democrats and anti-war groups, could significantly hamper Gabbard’s ability to pass the legislation.

Where are all the “constitutional conservatives, antiwar progressives, and libertarian members of congress?  Are they joining Gabbard in trying to end this?  An illegal occupation of a foreign country not authorized by Congress and most likely counter to international law and she can’t get a single co-sponsor.
