On October 3, 2002, Rep. Paul — in an attempt to hammer home the point that only Congress has the power to declare war — made a motion to declare war on Iraq. The chairman of the House Committee on International Relations, Henry Hyde, rejected the motion by declaring:
“There are things in the Constitution that have been overtaken by events, by time. Declaration of war is one of them. There are things no longer relevant to a modern society. Why declare war if you don’t have to? We are saying to the President, use your judgment. So, to demand that we declare war is to strengthen something to death. You have got a hammerlock on this situation, and it is not called for. Inappropriate, anachronistic, it isn’t done anymore.” [Emphasis added.]

I guess requiring Congress to make sure a candidate for president of the United States is a natural born citizen is no longer relevant to a modern society, is inappropriate, anachronistic, and isn’t done anymore. Obama has made a monkey out of the American People. I guess treason is no longer relevent if the constitution is no longer relevant.
