Who Am I to Question the Commander-in-Chief.

  One of the other basic fundations of the United States Constitution is found in our Bill of Rights:

  Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

  As I said, war is a serious thing; a very serious thing. Now is the time for debate, for the expression of your views, for exercising your voice, and your right of free speech.
