Do you really think those people give a rats behind what we think? A few of them care but for the most part it's a buddy system. They influence each other.

What I mean is they are talking behind closed doors saying if you vote no or yes on this then I'll vote on your side the next time you need a vote.

Take McCain for example. It's very obvious most people in AZ are against an attack on Syria but he voted to attack. He's not that much different than any other politician.

We could choose to wring our hands and say it's all too hard and I agree that sort of corruption exists but to do nothing , not to even try is worse than the evil they are committing.

My conscience is clear , I am doing what I can to stop this , in any way I can.
I am not an Americian citizen , but I am married to one and I will also have to deal with all the fallout from another world war. So I am doing my very best to prevent it.

From the Chicago Tribune we have this assessment of the uphill battle that is being waged to bring America yet again to another costly and possibly World War.



According to a CNN count aired on Saturday, just 25 U.S. senators have gone on the record in favor of military force, while 19 are against and the rest undecided. It will likely take 60 of the Senate's 100 members to advance the measure to the House of Representatives.



In the House, where 218 votes will be required to pass the resolution, CNN said that just 24 members are on record in support of military action, with 119 opposed.

Thank you for finding that link, it's going to prove very helpful as I start to let my own opinion be known to our elected officials on the whole Syrian issue.

Since this was a listing for the House, I found one for the Senate as well. Not as nice as the one you found for the House, but it still shows how the Senators are leaning and gives anyone who wishes to speak up a place to start.
