WHO WE ARE GET INVOLVED CANDIDATE SURVEYS C4L FOUNDATION ON THE ISSUES ABOUT AUDIT THE FED

Senate Vote on Libya

Around 5pm this evening, the Senate will vote on S.J.Res. 20, a bill to authorize the "limited use" of military force against Libya for up to one year, or until the end of NATO operations.

This whole process is more than a day late, and several hundred million dollars short.

If America were to bomb Libya legally, according to our own laws, the President should have sought military authorization from Congress before engaging in any hostilities -- and yes Mr. President, dropping bombs on a country, any country, constitutes hostilities.

60 votes is the threshold the Senate needs to proceed on with consideration of the AUMF against Libya.  Contact your Senator today, make sure they know you're opposed to the President's illegal war in Libya.  Tell them you've had enough of the Orwellian double-speak put forth by the administration and contained in this resolution and demand they vote NO on this, and any other future authorization for the unnecessary military adventurism in Libya.

"Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be.

But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.

She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all.

She is the champion and vindicator only of her own."

-- John Quincy Adams, July 4th 1821
