Obama got his deal. This deal, to many, borders on treason. If it is not treason against America, it certainly is a stab in the back of our greatest ally, Israel. Obama needed 34 votes to pass the treaty through the Senate. This is a blow to the stability in the Middle East.
How we can ignore the threat of a nation, who vows to destroy Israel, and vows to break the agreement in said treaty, is beyond me. The Senate should treat the deal as a treaty. They still can according to Andrew McCarthy. However, they have allowed themselves to push this dangerous deal through. The main issue with this deal is that we cannot trust Iran to comply.
Also, there are apparently some incredibly bad concessions in the deal. Iran is allegedly allowed to inspect themselves, which makes it easier for them to hide nuclear weapons. If this allegation is true, the American leadership has let down the world. Iran with nuclear capability makes the world a more dangerous place.
All of this aside, since when, in America, are government officials allowed to hide important information from voters and not heed their concerns? Since when do we bypass our legislature and appeal to the United Nations? We the people of America should be the priority of our diplomats, not some personal goal or feel good mission.
American patriots have been promoting a Convention of States to reel in our government. This action needs to be taken sooner than later, so that we can retain our rights, and have the government work for us. We need major reform in our government, and the people should stand up and demand it. Hopefully Republicans in the Senate fight in the next week, but i doubt that they will.
The GOP loves to promise action, but always seems to fail. The GOP is just as responsible as the Democrats. If we use our majority we could actually challenge the establishment. However, too many of the Republicans are part of the establishment. The Republican Majority in the Senate would surprise me greatly if they took a stand. Hopefully they will.
