The United States of America. Greatest nation on Earth. One of the most misunderstood structure in the world (States Rights vs. Federal Rights). A declaration of war is a formal declaration issued by a national government indicating that a state of war exists between that nation and another. For the United States, Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution says "Congress shall have power to ... declare War". However, that passage provides no specific format for what form legislation must have in order to be considered a "Declaration of War" nor does the Constitution itself use this term. Many have postulated "Declaration(s) of War" must contain that phrase as or within the title. Others oppose that reasoning. In the courts, the United States First Circuit Court of Appeals in Doe vs. Bush said: "[T]he text of the October Resolution itself spells out justifications for a war and frames itself as an 'authorization' of such a war." in effect saying a formal Congressional "Declaration of War" was not required by the Constitution.
Ron Paul was asked in regards to abortion what should be done.... and he replied the Federal Gov should not have the right to kill..., but the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT does have the right to KILL! In fact the President even has a limited abilty to use force without the approval of either the House of Representative or the Senate. It isn't ideal, but it is legally possible. Ron Paul's criticism is like usual on very shaky ground.
