Learn more about War on ISIS
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) recently proposed declaring war against the Islamic State (ISIS). The declaration would give the President more authority to carry out broader attacks on the militant group without Congressional approval. Opponents argue that the order would give the President too much power by eliminating Congressional oversight. Proponents argue that fighting an organization like ISIS requires an unconventional war plan that requires the President to make quick decisions without Congressional oversight. See recent ISIS news

It would be difficult to declare war on an entity that is not controlled by or centered in one country, by one government, & who has no value for human life. I think it would be a waste of money to an extent but we also have to find a way to stop them. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Winchester, VA
