Who cares what the American people think? Not our government.

House Speaker Boehner and President Obama can’t agree on economics, health care, taxes, social security, welfare or the color of the sky, but they can agree to interfere in a civil war going on thousands of miles away and drop bombs that will do little to solve anything. Boehner has come out in support of the idea, which, in case you weren’t convinced before, means that the idea is a very bad one.

No one is listening to the American people, who overwhelmingly oppose bombing Syrian targets. We also never wanted a secret surveillance program that would listen in on our calls and emails. Time after time the will of the American people is overruled by politicians with agendas that have little to do with serving citizens and everything to do with worshiping the industrial/military complex in hopes of large reelection checks.

The proposal sent to Congress from the administration outlining the rationale and tactics for bombing Syria is vague and fool of loopholes, yet many representatives already seem to think it’s okay to go ahead and pull the trigger, and this includes a lot of Democrats. Again, no one is taking into account the wishes of the majority of Americans.

Nothing good will come of bombing Syria. It will either be totally ineffective or serve as the catalyst for a much larger war in the region and further U.S intervention. Either way, innocent civilians will die as a result. It’s a lose/lose situation however you look at it.
