Mitch McConnell's new AUMF bill is proving to be a glorified war clause. This bill could allow the president to declare international, martial law. It's not just the war on ISIS that would use this clause to it's advantage, it could also give the government the power to declare war on the people of the United States.
Chris Murphy, a democratic senator, is speaking out against the bill and the harm it has the potential of causing the law-abiding people of the United States. The Authorization for Use of Military Force is meant to target ISIS, wherever it may be. Unfortunately for most of the worlds population, ISIS and ISIS supporters can be found all over the globe and this bill will give American soldiers the ability to enter any country, without opposition, and with little to no rules to abide by. To see why even Democrats like Chris Murphy's oppose this bill, check out his speech on the next page. When even his own party members show this level of resistance, all Americans should be concerned!
