Rand Paul: "I Will Do Everything I Can To Stop" Obama From Attacking Syria

SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): Absolutely he needs congressional approval, the Constitution is very clear on this subject. In fact James Madison explained in the Federalist Papers, he said the executive branch is the branch most likely to go to war, therefore we vest the power to go to war in Congress. Without question Congress should vote on this and he is going against the Constitution and it will be an unlawful act if he actually takes military action without having Congress vote on the issue.


PAUL: The American people are not excited about a new war. We are horrified by it. People gassing their own citizens. We would like to know who did it. Which side did it but we are not excited to get involved in a new war right now. And so, I would do everything I can to stop the president and we should not engage in a war and we certainly should engage in it, in an unconstitutional fashion
