Mark Levin Gets Mopped By Tom Woods On War Powers

I'm not going to get much into the commentary on this one.  Mark Levin (who I'm a fan of by the way) makes a pretty weak and incoherent argument on presidential war powers and gets thrashed by libertarian columnist and author Tom Woods.  Simply put, Levin thinks that it is proper for a President to start offensive wars without a formal Declaration of War.  Tom Woods makes a very succinct and coherent argument to the contrary.  Woods challenged Levin to back up his position with evidence that the Federalists approved of the President entering non-defensive conflicts without consulting Congress.

Disappointingly, Mark changes the subject and does his name-calling thing.  Link to the debate below:

A well thought out piece by Tom Woods on the subject:
