    That bans congress members from voting to send the military into ANY actions unless they themselves had served? Maybe then they would know what its like to go to war and it would stop a good bit of this needless war mongering...yes or no? Why or why not?

    No.

    Should we also demand that any member of congress voting on a budget, provide their bank records to prove they balance their checkbook?

    We don't want a goverment made up of only soliders. While I think the idea comes from a good place, it's not something I would support.

    Typical. Lets just let draft dodgers and hippies send our sons and daughters to war when they were afraid or they cheated their way out of going...makes perfect sense.

    By that logic then no member of congress should be able to vote on any law unless they are personally experienced.

    No.

    1 - I would not support any law that limited the voice of one elected representative over another under any circumstances concerning a given issue.

    2 - Prior military service is no guarantee against poor military policy.

    3 - Such a law would encourage military service as a means to Congressional authority as opposed to the defense of one's family and Country.

    Not at all. The flip side to your dumb poll is that congress also has the option to vote against sending our troops to war.
