JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As a Congressional vote for military action in Syria approaches, some in Jacksonville are vocal about their opposition to President Barack Obama's plan.

Constituents of Ander Crenshaw marched from Memorial Park to the Congressman's office, imploring him to vote "No" by posting notices on his office doors and windows.

The Congressman is undecided on his vote, according to a recent Associated Press poll.

Meanwhile, at Terry Road Baptist Church, a congregation with a large population of Syrians, some attending a church service were also against military action.

In Jacksonville, the vote seems to be split down party lines. The poll reveals Senator Bill Nelson and Congresswoman Corrine Brown would vote "Yes" with Senator Marco Rubio and Congressmen Ron Desantis and Ted Yoho would vote military action.

I received an email telling me that Ander Crenshaw was going to support a strike, to which I responded by saying NO! Many of these miserable 'leaders' need 'to go', but not by our troops! We CANNOT change the minds of the brainwashed and need to stop killing OUR OWN children by trying. With the right leadership, we can collaborate with other leaders to send 'contractors' in to deal with these monsters. It's time to quit 'dabbling' in war everywhere.

Assad needs to go. Strange that people would condone the killing of children with gas and by mercenary execution squads. Collateral damage is one thing but intentionally targeting children is war crimes. While we need to scale back wars this is something that cannot be ignored.

Brown & Nelson pull the lever that produces the "money pellet"...
