The Republicans released their congressional members to vote their consciences regarding the strike on Syria.
I can’t swallow this, even though it’s nothing new.
I would hope that all members of Congress — Republicans and Democrats — have been elected to vote their consciences first, such as upholding honesty and integrity to their moral principles first, the national interest second and the party line third.
We are in deep trouble when our elected representatives need to be released to be true to their consciences.
