Resolution of the National Convention To Condemn any Unlawful and Improper War with Iraq

(Adopted by overwhelming vote of the National Convention of the America First Party on August 10, 2002)

Whereas, the United States Constitution vests the power to make war exclusively in the United States Congress; and

Whereas, the making of war by the United States of America may only be justified when the safety and security of our people and our homeland are imperiled; and

Whereas, our nation has experienced the bitter fruit of adventurous and undeclared wars that have sullied the rightness of our cause, damaged our reputation abroad, imperiled our brave fighting men and women, and shed innocent blood;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED BY THE NATIONAL CONVENTION:

That it is not the business of the United States to solve the world's problems, babysit bickering factions abroad, or defend the interests and safety of any nation other than our own; and

That this nation has no cause for war with Iraq, her people, or their leaders, unless they seek to harm our people or this beloved land; and

That unless and until the nation of Iraq lifts its hand against our people, our homes, or our countryland, there can be no just, moral, legal, or practical cause for armed conflict between us; and

That we deplore the growing efforts to foment hatred and fear of the nation of Iraq solely for the purpose of fanning the flames of war hysteria; and

That calls for armed attack against Iraq are at present unjustified; and

That the President's plan to launch an unjustified war against Iraq without the mandatory Congressional Declaration of War is repugnant to our Constitution, to the principles and ideals of our nation, to basic principles of morality and justice, and to the peace and security of the United States; and

That should the President institute unlawful and improper use of the armed forces of the United States, the America First Party shall call for his immediate impeachment and removal from office.
