Anti-war Stance Is Right, Not Left

Anti-war Stance Is Right, Not Left
:
"Unlike the left, we recognize that the president's powers as commander-in-chief are limited, as well they should be. Under our system of government, we have a president entrusted with certain specified powers; we do not have an elected dictator or a king. As Alexander Hamilton explained in The Federalist Papers (No. 69), the president's authority as commander-in-chief amounts "to nothing more than the supreme command and direction of the military and naval forces, as first general and admiral ... while that of the British king extends to the declaring of war and to the raising and regulating of fleets and armies-all which, by the Constitution under consideration, would appertain to the legislature."

Wow the big brave righties over at Free Republic jerked my posting privileges right after I posted on this article. I must've really got their whitey tighties in a real wad. What a hoot!

Obviously, Free Republic ain't so free. Well, if a man can be judged by who yanks their post...you're doing alright. Kick @ the whitey tighties! ;)

The Free Repuke-lick is a right wing circle jerk, I must've caused someone over there to drop his buddy's dick! :)

Wow, I wish I had known sooner, I would have rushed right over. Well, there's a certain sense of honor getting kicked out of an establishment, ay?

I've been kicked out of plenty of blogs too, Mike. Either that or ignored. :)

Shows their true metal--or lack thereof.
