Its not outside the realm of possibility that Trump is going to get us into another war…he is a hot head with no intelligence. He just shot 40 cruise missles at Syria, a move that the majority of republicans (including Trump) were against when Obama was thinking about doing it. This is a fucking mess, the military industrial complex wants profits, and to get profits they need wars, and wars breed terrorism, and terrorism comes home to hard us. Its literally a pattern we have been repeating for decades.
The real way to help the Syrians would be at accept a bunch of them as refugees, but Trump has predictably taken both sides of that issue.
Fuck everything about this, the president shouldn’t be able to unilaterally start wars, the congress must declare war, time to revoke these powers so that we don’t have left and right wing presidents running around like kinds with a pocket military. It was wrong when Bush and Obama did it, and its wrong now.
I was the lone vote against 2001 AUMF. Syria strikes are far beyond the scope of this war authorization. @SpeakerRyan needs to bring a vote.

Meanwhile Trumps idiot policies are causing less jobs to be created, and hundreds of millions to be lost from tourists, and university students too afraid to come here.
Sen. Warren: Blame GOP for future Supreme Court rulings, also blame the dems for not fighting AT all for a real progressive nominee when they had the chance. Instead the put up garland and then sat on their thumbs for a year.
Schumer And Pelosi Break From Colleagues, Back Trump’s Missile Strike On Syria. With dem’s like this, who needs republicans.
Oil prices jump after US launches missile strike in Syria. If we had someone like say the former CEO of Exxon Mobile as the head of the secretary of state that might be a good thing…
I don’t really know whats going on over there, but I don’t trust Trump to not be easily tricked into something.

Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.
Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:
Call the White House:
Call the “White House”:
Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).
Do a little Slacktivism:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
