I recently appeared on the Conflicts of Interest podcast hosted by Kyle Anzalone to talk about the pernicious impacts of America’s endless, unconstitutional wars.
Kyle and I discussed the ongoing U.S. military actions in Yemen and Somalia and their constitutional ramifications. We discussed constitutional war powers, how Congress has pawned off its responsibility to the president and why the founders didn’t want a single individual making decisions about war and peace. We also touched on the cost of these endless wars.
Kyle and I also talked about some of the big wins for nullification in the November elections and touched on the growing momentum behind the Defend the Guard bill to limit National Guard deployments to foreign combat zones without a congressional declaration of war.
