Can action at the state level take on the endless unconstitutional wars? Yes, it can, as I explain in this interview on the Foreign Policy Focus Podcast with Kyle Anzalone.

When it comes to stopping unconstitutional wars, most people reflexively assume they’ll have to work through Congress. But as I explain in this interview the Defend the Guard Act creates a mechanism at the state level that could force Congress to do its job and declare war before sending troops into offensive combat operations overseas. This legislation would prohibit the governor from activating state Guard units without a formal, congressional declaration of war.

The movement is growing as more states will consider the bill in 2020. I explain how the legislation would work and most importantly, how you can help get it passed in your state.

Kyle and I also touch on some other issues including the unconstitutional drug war and asset forfeiture.
