Furthermore it is also intolerable to hear that the US has troops on the ground in Syria and apparently has for some time without authorization of the US Congress.
It is also intolerable that this government has decided to escalate tensions between China and the US by placing anti missile systems in South Korea.
I want representatives that reject this sort of war mongering by the US government. I want representatives that do not casually vote yes on these absurd military budgets and support the funding of US military bases around the world.
I expect my representatives to take an extreme legislation stance in opposition to the activities above including picking, holding news conferences and anything else to draw attention to these disturbing and illegal activities.
I had heard somewhere that Massachusetts was the most liberal state in the union. So I thought that I would start by reading up on the Massachusetts Delegation to the US Congress, starting with Elizabeth Warren. This what I found at https://www.warren.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=1464

Washington, D.C. - Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Congressman Joseph Kennedy III (D-Mass.) today announced that the House and Senate Appropriations committees have included two additional set orders and awarded an additional $114 million [$114,000,000] emphasis and italics added., for General Dynamics' Warfighter Information Network-Tactical program (WIN-T) in their final version of the fiscal 2017 defense appropriations bill. WIN-T, which is produced at the General Dynamics facility in Taunton, improves the Army's communications systems and provides soldiers with mobile, enhanced and secure information-sharing capabilities on the battlefield. The House is scheduled to vote on the bill next week.
