Sign the Petition to Congress here!
And, David Swanson, reminds us “It’s Not the President’s Decision!”
The U.S. Constitution leaves the decision to wage war to Congress, and Congress can enforce its decision not to wage war by refusing to fund it. Blocking a funding bill for wars requires the House of Representatives alone, and both Democrats and Republicans in the House are rapidly joining us in saying No to war funding.
It’s time to finally get serious, to lobby, to protest, to sit in, to nonviolently disrupt and resist in local district offices until enough Representatives commit to voting No on any bill to fund more war.
Here’s a link to a rapidly-changing whip list in the form of a google document that you can embed* on your own website:
Public Opposes Wars, Will Our Representatives?
Please call your representatives and find out they will vote on funding the wars, urge them not to, etc. and post responses from them in the above site beneath the chart. The chart is regularly updated. This is a great way to keep a running to “track” of our representatives

Support over 100 outstanding, leading peace activists in their “Emergency Anti-Escalation Rally,” on December 12, 2009, at the White House, by going to Ends the Wars Org and signing the letter to the President. It’s easy, send them an e-mail and ask that your name and state be included.
JUST FOREIGN POLICY!
Tell President Obama: No More Troops for Afghanistan! – AND –
Demand a Congressional Debate on Troop Escalation
And to think that there are a couple of bills in Congress, that ask for taxing the American people for these wars??
