Media Release: Jesse Fullington, candidate of Tennessee for the House of Reps. 79th LD, Military Action from President Trump on Syria 4.7.2017
Jesse M. Fullington is seeking election in the 2018 State Representative Race in the 79th District in Tennessee.
Official Release: April 6, 2017
It saddens me deeply to hear the news that tonight, Donald J. Trump took military action against Syria. I say Trump and not America, simply because we didn't ask for another war. No approval by either Congress or the American people was given for these actions, though four years ago it was something he criticized about Barack Obama. It is deplorable and a very threat to our Liberty as Americans to condone this kind of behavior from a Commander-in-Chief. We should be considering this as an affront, not as a justified action. We had the power to help these people by giving them a safe haven, but yet we turned them away and attacked what they have left. This will accomplish nothing more than another endless war, with a body count neither side should want on their hands.
Now is not the time to blindly support actions, it's time to critically think as individuals to make informed decisions. The government is to be held accountable by us and to be the voice of the people NOT the other way around. We are literally seeing our voice CRUMBLE before our eyes. The question that remains is, are we going to let it? Furthermore, I would call on all Libertarians to join me in standing against these, or any acts of aggression, that could lead to further conflict.
