Senior Republican Joins Co-sponsors of Jones's H.C.R. 107

Rep. Dan Burton (R-In.), a 30-year veteran of the House of Representatives, has become the third cosponsor of Walter Jones's H.C.R. 107. Burton is the chairman of the Europe and Eurasia Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and a noted "hawk" on military affairs.

Burton's thinking mirrors that of Jones, as reflected in a March 19 op-ed he published in the Washington Times, under the title "Burton: Congress Must Say Go," with the subhead "Air war on Syria requires congressional authorization." Burton directly takes on the lunatic calls for military action against Syria coming from Sen. John McCain, and then launches into an elaboration of the Constitutional mandate that it is Congress that must declare war.

He then argues: "If Mr. Obama is contemplating taking Mr. McCain's suggestion, as I fear he is, he is required before one plane leaves the hangar or carrier or one American bullet is fired to seek the formal authorization of Congress. If he does anything less, he will be violating his oath of office and committing an arguably impeachable offense."

Everyone is encouraged to ask both Congressmen David Schweikert and Ben Quayle, why are they not also signing on as co-sponsors of HCR 107.

Ben Quayle in his election campaign has call Obama, "The worst president ever!"  Why has he not introduce a bill of impeachment for the acts that he has already done?

Why wait until Obama does another impeachable act, the one that Obama is contemplating will end the world as we know it.

Contact they Congressmen and ask why they are not co-sponsoring HCR107
