Yes, it is!! Wars give America's powers-that-be a kind of erotic sexual pleasure not experience by any other nation throughout our planet's history.

All in the name of fighting ISIS, Congress is about to crown the president with unlimited war powers. In today's Liberty Report we discuss the dangers of the incredible shrinking Legislative branch of government:
