If the federal government is supposedly still deriving its authority from the people and we, the people, do not have the authority to occupy and steal from our neighbors, then from where did the federal government get these powers? Why did Donald Trump flip-flop on his decision to pull our troops out of Syria? Is it even legal for the United States to have troops in Syria? Remember, speaking out and calling a wrong a wrong doesn’t mean you automatically want the other team in office. It means you are living by a set of principles that means no matter who violates them, you speak out against the action occurring.
