The US Senate has voted to kill the amendment proposed by Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) which would repeal the 2001 and 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Senate can’t repeal the AUMF without replacing it with a new authorization, said Senator John McCain (R-Arizona).

“It would mean that we would immediately need to start winding down” US forces abroad, said Senator Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), who also opposed Paul’s amendment.

Paul had vowed to delay the passage of the $700-billion dollar National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) if he didn’t get a vote on repealing the AUMF.

“We have been there for 16 years. It is time for [the wars] to end. It is time for Congress to vote on whether or not they should end,” Paul said on Monday.

The Kentucky Republican noted that his protest was for the soldiers, adding that “hypocrites” are happy to “pretend concern over our constitutional duty to declare war”  but are happy to “block any vote on ending any of our 7 current wars.”

        Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. Congress, for example.

          I neglected to add the /s reference for sarcasm. Apparently people will never figure-out that voting is a scam and by doing so they’re only supporting the criminal behavior… until it’s too late. Well… I’ve begun to look forward to novelty, since it appears that the sheeple are incapable or unwilling to see things for what they really are. The system is too corrupt to correct, so let’s tear the mutha down & start over.

            The late Rev. George Carlin got it right. If you vote you are part of the problem. The real winner of most elections isn’t even on the ballot. His name is None Of The Above.

            Ah yes, the late great Rev-rund. I occasionally watch some of his work just to refresh. Cheers.
