    I suppose now you are young to say he should be tried, found guilty of war crimes and be executed.

    Precedent does not replace the Constitution.

    He violated the Constitution and should be impeached for it. I hope he will be impeached for taking the nation to war without a declaration of war by the Congress.

    This is tyranny.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Begin with impeachment. If removed from office, then move to a criminal trial.

    Mr. V sees himself as the utmost authority on any topic. He's also judge and jury...he'll leave executioner to someone else.

    The box is called the Constitution. Do you need a link?

    A very plain, simple reading indicates I am right. I frequently stand, right and alone.

    If you really need for me to be a trigger puller I am willing. But it is clear that thinkers are needed far more than trigger pullers. I am a thinker.

    9/11 we were attacked by al Qaeda. The difference is that we were not attacked by Syria; no provocation on their part. Under the War Powers Act, the President cannot draw us into war unless he goes to congress and requests permission to do such or if we are attacked by a foreign power.

    I got a bad feeling about this; it could have extreme consequences for his administration.

    I will contact my representative and request that he support Trump's impeachment.
