As someone who opposes Islamophobia, why should I vote strategically for a party that drafted a dog-whistle bill around it or that voted for it, over the NDP who didn't?

If you have been tuned into what's happening in Yemen, you may have heard something about "war powers" or a "war powers resolution". Now, there are renewed calls for @RoKhanna & @SenSanders to introduce a War Powers Resolution. But what is the WPR? 🧵 #WarPowers
The War Powers Resolution was introduced in 1973, during the Vietnam war to reemphasize something the Constitution already makes clear: Congress has war making powers, not the president.
Article I and Section 8 of the Constitution clearly outline Congressional war-making powers. The President can't do a lot of those things unless specifically authorized. For example, Congress passed an AUMF (Authorization for the Use of Military Force) for Iraq.
