Just over one year ago, on 5/16/2007, 288 representatives in our Democrat controlled House voted against the Constitution. They voted against the DeFazio amendment (H.Amdt.187) to the defense appropriations bill H.R.1585. The amendment merely restated Article 1 Section 8.11 of the Constitution by requiring Mr. Bush to get Congressional approval for an attack and/or war on Iran. These representatives included four of our five local representatives; only Bob Filner (D) supported the Constitution.

Darrell Issa (R), in early 2007, was the only local representative who clearly and publicly opposed an attack on Iran. Even Filner didn’t take such a position. Issa then followed the orders of his leadership and voted against his conscience. Susan Davis (D) voted for a similar amendment the prior year in a Republican controlled House when her vote could have no effect. She then flipped and voted against the De Fazio amendment. Finally in December under pressure by local members of Moveon.org, she flopped and co-sponsored two similar bills which sit forever in committees never to come to votes on the House floor.

Duncan Hunter (R) and Brian Bilbray (R) joined Issa in following their Leader, their Decider.

I believe the war on terror is an existential threat, but the greater threat is not foreign terrorism. It is counter terrorism supported by America’s domestic enemies. Whether or not you agree, whether or not you support an attack on Iran, stand for what’s left of our Constitution. Call your Representative and Senators at (202) 224 3121. Demand Congress pass legislation requiring Bush to get Congressional approval for an attack on Iran. This issue should transcend all others until this legislation is passed. I submit, if Congress doesn’t pass such legislation and Bush attacks without Congressional approval, 288 representatives should be taken out and shot as traitors. God bless America and damn these Un-Americans.
