Syria - Where are the Republicans hiding?

UK Parliament says no to war.
Can someone check down at the local bar for GOP Speaker
John Boehner?  He is missing in action as Dear Leader 
Obama rapes the Constitution.

The U.S. is the only democracy on earth with no opposition party.

Like a pet dog, the Statist Republican Party rolls over on its back and our Dear Leader rubs its belly saying, "Play dead. Good dog."

So while Obama eagerly takes the nation to an unconstitutional war in Syria, the "small government" GOP either acts as mindless cheerleaders for dictatorship or are hiding under their desks in fear.

But there is still a bit of freedom in the United Kingdom as Parliament rebelled against authoritarianism and war.

British Prime Minister David Cameron lost a vote endorsing military action against Syria by 13 votes Thursday, a stunning defeat for a government which had been poised to join the U.S. in strikes to punish Bashar Assad's regime for an alleged chemical weapons attack this month.

Cameron's nonbinding motion was defeated 285-272 and he conceded after the vote that "the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action," reports the Associated Press.

Obedient Republican Lap Dogs.
GOP Speaker John Boehner (left) and Senator Mitch McConnell are well trained
lap dogs for the Beltway Elites.  While the Constitution gets raped on a daily basis
the GOP leaders are either in hiding or helping Democrats pass their agenda. 
The GOP lap dogs are too frightened to speak up or they act as ball-less
and brainless cheerleaders for the unconstitutional Imperial Presidency.

The prime minister said in terse comments while he believes in a "tough response" to the use of chemical weapons, he would respect the will of the House of Commons.

As one of the few Constitutional Federalists out there, Texas Senator Ted Cruz said it’s “unacceptable” that members of the British House of Commons are having a vigorous debate about that country’s policy towards Syria but Congress is staying home.

The Republican tweeted an image to his 116,000 followers on Thursday of Prime Minister David Cameron debating the topic on top of another photo showing the empty floor of the U.S. Senate.

“We should ascertain who used the weapons and we should have an open debate in Congress over whether the situation warrants U.S. involvement,” Kentucky Senator  Rand Paul said Wednesday. “The Constitution grants the power to declare war to Congress not the President.”
