Unilateral Wars

From the never-disappointing blog, Lawyers, Guns & Money, a post called "Death and Taxes,", by Paul Campos. 

This goes along with a previous post of mine, euphemistically called Kinetic Military Action (as though a war by any other name isn't really a war), about how the expenditure of millions of dollars--when we theoretically are BROKE--was scarcely acknowledged, much less vigorously debated:

I suspect James Madison et. al. would be appalled to discover that it would eventually become much harder for presidents to pursue even the most modest aspects of their preferred domestic policies than it would be for them to launch, with no congressional participation of any kind, unilateral wars against nations that hadn't attacked America, and posed no threat to our security.
