An Open Letter to My Congressman, Jim Moran

I submitted this to Congressman Jim Moran's website just a few moments ago:

Congressman Moran, 

From what I understand, you intend to back the president on Syrian intervention. I implore you change your mind. You have encouraged me with your stand on marijuana and other social issues, but I see no reason why we should get involved in Syria without a measurable and articulable objective. 

Right now, the best the administration has done is to make the case to quite literally just throw ordnance at the problem. That is a waste of resources that takes no real account of unintended consequences. 

I urge you to reconsider your position, 

Jonathan Blanks 
Alexandria, VA
