By Robert Kennedy

The highway to battle: Congress' ancient Abdication of Responsibility is a thought-provoking dialogue of the ramifications of a shift within the stability of powers among Congress and the administrative department in regards to battle and peace. To underscore his argument, writer Robert Kennedy outlines the highbrow origins of the U.S. structure and examines the reason of the Framers at the courting among Congress and the administrative department within the formula of international and protection coverage and judgements of struggle and peace.

Kennedy lines the erosion of congressional energy from 1789 to the twenty first century, concluding that Congress has usually talented away its struggle powers to the president, who prefer to go away judgements on his shoulders, instead of settle for the accountability for a complete exam of the problems and the cruel judgements that such efforts may possibly entail. This abdication by means of Congress of its constitutionally mandated tasks dangerously threatens the structures of exams and balances validated less than the structure. strength now not exams energy. Ambition is determined unfastened to take the line to War.
