Reason.com - "A war fit for a king". As with most Reason.com articles, this one provides an extended narrative that clearly articulates its point. It uses then-senator Obama's own words to contrast his current efforts in Libya, and describes our administration's new-found subservience to NATO and the UN. As we've stated before, it is interesting that Democrats who railed against Bush's foreign interventions are now silent, even though president Obama's foreign interventions are even more extreme than Bush's.

The federal government is obviously uninterested in following the contract; therefore, it is time for states to enforce it.
