I do not wish to embroil you in academic debate, however RP's view is that we should declare war not bypass congress. What part of that do you disagree with?
I don't disagree with any part of that. Actually, that's the only part of his foreign policy I DO agree with.
I don't believe US should close overseas bases or be completely non-interventionist. I don't want US to be the world's police but if asked to intervene I want that option on the table. After all, it could be US that needs intervention one day. I wouldn't like an ally to turn it's back on US if US needed help. Would you?

They have been acting with impunity for so long they have no fear of consequence.
Much like France in 1789-1799 the aristocrats will pay the price when the peasantry rises up.
