"Thomas Paine": An open letter to Barack Obama

Yeah, this guy again. Don’t blame me; you love him, so I’m happy to give you new vids. My quibble this time is with his insistence that formal declarations of war in Afghanistan and Iraq might have made a difference to soldiers stationed overseas insofar as they ensured those troops went to battle with “the full support of we, the people.” Would they have? If so, how? The Authorization of Military Force in Afghanistan drew exactly one no vote, which is more than enough to pass a war declaration. Does anyone here think war, formally declared by the U.S. Congress, would have deterred any of the nutroots shrieking or protests we’ve seen over the years? If not, I don’t know what to conclude about this guy … except that he’s a likely Ron Paul voter.
