scherzo♫ (pjreads) | 35 comments "Support HR 198 - Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force - legislation that will reexamine and ultimately repeal the flawed blank check authorization to the President to wage war, anywhere at any time.

Now is the time for the U.S. Congress to repeal the overly broad 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF)."

Victoria Stoklasa (victoriastoklasa) | 8 comments I won't tell you guys not to sign this petition, but really, a personal letter or call (or, heck, even a face-to-face visit, if possible) to your congressperson will work a lot better. Making it personalized will make it more real to him or her. You won't be just an unverifiable, faceless name on an internet petition.

Side note: Probably a "well, duh" thing, but make sure the address you put is the one where you're registered to vote!

Signed! Thank you for sharing. I hadn't heard about this bill.
