On the heels of Reuters poll showing only 9% support military action.
September 5, 2013
Millions of Americans are completely overloading the phone lines of Congress in a historical, unprecedented response to shut down the Obama war machine.
This comes in the wake of the recent Reuters poll that found only 9% of respondents back Obama in his quest for a military strike on Syria.
Here’s a sample run-down of statements made by House and Senate members showcasing the almost unanimous opposition from their constituents for a war in Syria:
In two short days, I’ve received 126 calls opposing military engagement in #Syria and only one call in favor.
– Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Az.) admitted to National Review that 498 out of the 500 calls to his office were completely against an attack on Syria.
– Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said that “99 percent of the calls coming to my office are against” a war in Syria. It is interesting to note that 76% of his district voted for Obama in 2012.
– Rep. Rand Paul, R-Ky. said “I’m told the phone calls are 9 out of 10 against a strike in Syria, from my constituents in Kentucky.”
