…at present, the United States isn't involved in any 'Wars'.
Hides bloody sleeves beneath table.
Technically he is right. For America to be in a war congress has to declare war and they haven't done that.
this Nation and all of its institutions are under an unprecedented assault against its Sovereignty and now its coming from the Legislature and from candidates for public office; I just expect that soon the culprits will be brought into the light and their motivations and influences exposed.

You're doing nothing but side-stepping, and not doing it very well. Muddying the water as it were.
America is a place where the Founders structured our Constitution to insure, late or soon, that all citizens are treated equitably before the law, regardless of their race, sex, religion, national origin (or any other arbitrary difference one wishes to mention).
That is the issue at hand.
Marriage (as a legal contract with state-mandated benefits, rights and privileges) has been variously offered to American citizens based on their sex.
SCOTUS corrected that long-standing yesterday. That's the end of it.

First we get a Constitutional Amendment Passed that Limits Justices to 10 or 20 years Terms of office and limit the Justices to only 1 term. Then we simply make it where the justices are chosen by election. Take the power away from the Senate and the President. And in the event a justice dies we simply have a vote for a new one next election.
