Okay, how about something practical we can all do to oppose the bombing of Syria? First off, take heart. More than any other time in recent history, more people are speaking out against this latest push for war than I can ever remember. You are not alone. See important news updates down below the 1-5 list.
Second, don’t be annoying. Don’t be this guy.
Here are 5 things you can do to effectively oppose the bombing of Syria.
1. Be fact-based and use arguments based on constitutional principles. These tweets from Rep. Justin Amash are a great example. Don’t have Twitter? Copy and paste (and share) this quote:
Congress hasn’t authorized war against Syria. Unless Pres Trump expects imminent attack on U.S., use of force is unconstitutional & illegal.
Be sure to read and share this entire thread from Rep. Justin Amash.
You’re going to hear and read the false, tired assertion that the War Powers Resolution (or Act) allows the president to take offensive military action without congressional approval for 60-90 days. Here’s why that’s not true:
The only mainstream cable news figure questioning the drive for a catastrophic war of Syrian regime change is a right-winger. Liberals are mocking him and MSNBC, NYT and CNN are egging Trump on to bomb. Corporate Democrats and their neocon pals have neutered anti-war politics. https://t.co/54aFHxqyPw
