What the Democrats need to do, is to propose an emergency resolution in Congress to stop Bush from starting a war in Iran until after the elections. They can word it anyway they wish. It could be a resolution to prevent an attack on another country unless in self-defense until the elections are over or it could be to try to suspend his authorization to use military power in any new areas until the elections. The Democrats have good lawyers, they can think up the right way to put it.
Now I know what you readers are thinking, this would NEVER fly. You're right. With a House and Senate controlled by the Republicans, it probably wouldn't. It might however, if enough Republicans are in jeopardy of losing their seats because of their loyalty to someone that is seen as a warmonger by a majority of the American people. Maybe Bush couldn't actually muster the votes to stop the resolution. It would be awkward for a politician to vote against it. Maybe the Democrats should listen to somebody else for a change. Somebody like me.
The Democrats should start raising hell NOW. They should be on talk shows on the radio and on TV. They should be inserting these possible Bush plans in their campaign spots. They should go to the American people and make them aware of what is happening. Even if these resolutions haven't got a chance in hell of getting out of committee, they should try to legislate us out of another foreign war by this president. It will serve a myriad of purposes. It will possibly be voted for, and then it will have stopped hostilities until we get a Democratic House and maybe a Senate in Congress. It will bring awareness of how this President uses War and conflict for political purposes. It would, if the President does attack Iran, prove that what the Democrats said he would do, HE DID. Lastly, it would serve as a reminder of how the Democrats tried to stop another ugly war, and won't be held accountable if it happens. They will probably lose a lot less votes if we happen to be in a conflict with Iran at election time.
