War Powers Act, keep it or rescind it?

I keep wondering why, if we want our Constitution back, that no one is looking at the real problem. " The War Powers Act" It used to create a " State of Emergency" and thus suspend the Constitution. We have been in a state of emergency since good ole honest Abe. With the Constitution suspended there is no real Joint session of Congress and therefore the impostor in the White House creates Executive Orders faster than we can read them. The true cure is getting the War Powers Act rescinded and this can be done at the State level. I'll kick back and see what responses if any come from this.

  • Here's how Wiki describes the War Powers Act:

    The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war.

    Problem, though, is that this is directly opposite to what the Constitution requires and authorizes.

    The Constitution delegates the power to declare war (state that war will state) to the congress....and the power to wage war (conduct the war itself) to the president.

    The War Powers Act gives both to the president - albeit for a period of only 60 days. But a war waged for just 1 minute without a congressional declaration is just as unconstitutional as one wages for 10 days or 60 days or 6 years.

    Thus, we consider the War Powers Act to be a violation of the constitution....it should be repealed, resisted, ignored - and driven off a cliff.
