The President should be able to use military force in the event of an imminent threat or attack, but should have Congressional approval for longterm operations.

@97ZPNXY from Texas answered…1 day

The president shouldn't be allowed to invade other countries without congressional approval, he should only be allowed to authorize military force if the government of the country being invaded says its ok.

@97ZMBGL from Colorado answered…2 days

Yes, but only short term. Anything longterm needs congressional approval

NO, there is a checks and balances program in place for a reason. Although the legislation branch at both federal and KY state level needs a huge reality check.

 @David-Cooper-KY from Kentucky answered…2 days

No, I believe we have three branches of government for a reason, to balance powers. Legislation bills should not be allowed to be re voted on if the governor or president veto's them.

No, Congress helps with check and balance process in making sound decisions.

No, I'd rather that countries stay out of others' businesses -- ESPECIALLY when each of the two are from different continents. Endless wars suck!

@97Z9Z23 from Oregon answered…3 days

Immediate military action should be determined by one man in extreme circumstances in order to expedite the process. It should reviewed and decided by congress ASAP in order to withdrawal or proceed.

Within the next month, maybe two, of the attack, sure. After that, maybe leave it to Congress.

Yes, but Congress must approve/ratify any sustained use of military force.

@97YTLKS from Georgia answered…5 days

The only time our military should be used without any approval is if we are in imminent threat of being attacked. Any military commitment to an overseas war must have congressional approval. If we would have stuck to this principle, we would not be in the situation that we are in today.

@97YPRSX from Minnesota answered…5 days

I do not have enough information to answer accurately and informed.

@97YN2YW from Ohio answered…6 days

Yes but only in the situation where we need military force right then and there and congress won't be able to provide an answer at that moment.

@97YLLYC from New Jersey answered…6 days

I do not recall military policy to an extent large enough to answer

@97YLCBLIndependent from North Carolina answered…6 days

I feel like it depends on the threat level and how urgent forces are needed

@97YKDXQ from Colorado answered…6 days

If absolutely necessary but I believe he should try to get it first

@97YHXLH from Wisconsin answered…6 days

the President should only be allowed to use military force without Congressional approval during an emergency where there is no time to wait for Congressional approval to come through
