Ok so I went ahead and wrote to my reps.

I know it's a waste of time, but here's what I wrote to both senators and the house rep:

Sir, it seems that our President is contemplating starting WWIII, and Congress is allowing him to do it through the AUMF. I am aware that bombing Syria is extremely unpopular amongst American citizens, and I am no exception to this line of thinking. I am also of the understanding that the bombing could begin any time, possibly within the next 24 hours. I respectfully ask what you are thinking and why you have not stopped him from using our honorable troops to commit what appears to me to be war crimes? Please introduce and pass the immediate repeal of the Authorization to Use Military Force and stop this right now. Signing a petition in protest is not good enough and does not alleviate you of responsibility for the President's actions that have been illegally delegated to him by Congress. Thank you for your attention to this crucially important matter.

That's what I wrote. At this point, I don't really care what these people think about me. They certainly don't seem to care what I think about them.

I can't keep up with watching both the left hand and the right hand these days. There is just so much going on that it's hard to tell what's a distraction and what's on purpose. This thing with Syria seems pretty serious to me. Thank you all for the information you've been posting today.
