Oppose War with Syria

ACTION ITEM

Do you oppose war with Syria? If so, don’t be a bystander while crimes are committed in your name. Use our system to tell Congress that you deny consent.

The hardwired message for this campaign reads

Defend America only. Do not manipulate or police the world.

You can borrow from the personal comments I added to my letter to Congress

Take immediate action to prevent President Obama from launching any military action in Syria.

The war-making power belongs solely to Congress. It cannot be delegated to the Executive Branch, in any blanket way, through any kind of war powers act.

If you fail to restrain the President, then you will be complicit in the President’s crimes. His planned actions violate the Constitution. They also break other written laws. This makes them inherently criminal. Even worse…

The President is trying to fix something that cannot be solved by outsiders dropping bombs. This will not protect innocent people. It will kill innocents. Their blood will be on the President’s hands, and on your hands, unless you use your powers to resist.

I am doing what I can to resist. I do not want these criminal acts committed in my name. I deny consent!

The institution in which you serve is losing legitimacy every day because of an unrelenting disregard for the law and for moral principles. Reverse your course!

– END OF SAMPLE LETTER –
