    It's Obama that gets us into war in Libya and they blame John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

    Petition from Democrats.com Not one dime for Libya.

    For the past year, rightwing billionaires Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers have insisted Congress slash spending on everything - except enormous tax cuts for themselves.

    Last month, their Tea Party Republican henchmen demanded $100 billion in immediate cuts, and $4 trillion in cuts over 10 years.

    Yet last week, Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham had the nerve to demand a brand new war in Libya - one we can't possibly afford.

    As economist say about lunches: there's no such thing as a free war.

    The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have cost over $3 trillion, with no end in sight.

    And every single penny was charged to our uncontrolled national debt, even as Republicans endlessly denounced the immorality of that debt.

    At a time when tyrants are murdering civilians in numerous countries, why are we bombing Libya?

    Is it just because McCain, Graham, and Joe Lieberman went on TV to demand it? Why do three TV Senators get to demand wars?

    The Constitution requires majorities of both houses of Congress to authorize wars. Tea Party Republicans insisted they would strictly follow the Constitution. So why didn't they hold a vote?

    Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) will introduce an amendment to upcoming bills to block any funds for attacking Libya. Every "progressive," "fiscal conservative," and "Constitutional defender" who opposes this amendment will be exposed as an utter fraud and should be defeated next November.

    Thanks for all you do!

    This whole thing just comes across as liberals being good and angry that conservatives aren't willing to fund all their pet projects and entitlements in an effort to curb spending.

    Of course these are the same folks bitching about the killing of innocent people by government forces, then they turn around and bitch about the NO FLY ZONE over Libya.

    I want to know who actually thinks McCain, Graham, and Lieberman are Tea Party Republicans. I don't ever recall such an accusation.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
