by the Constitution Party National Committee – November 2010 – Fort Worth, Texas
WHEREAS, military forces of the United States have been deployed in combat operations in Afghanistan since 2001; and
WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States has yet to issue a declaration of war as required by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States; and
WHEREAS, the current deployment of U.S. military forces in Afghanistan is thus contrary to the clear meaning and intent of the Constitution of the United States; and
WHEREAS, the Constitutional foreign policy of the founding fathers known as non-interventionism is clearly violated by continued combat operations in Afghanistan;
THEREFORE, be it resolved that the Constitution Party calls upon the President of the United States to terminate combat operations in Afghanistan and honor our valiant fighting men by bringing them home to perform their rightful role of defending the borders of the United States.
