On December 8, 1941, only ONE member of Congress voted
Thu Dec 7, 2017 3:56pm

AGAINST declaration of war.

Amazingly enough, the same member of Congress voted against US entry into World War 1.

On this day, Montanan Jeanette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress and a dedicated lifelong pacifist, casts the sole Congressional vote against the U.S. declaration of war on Japan. She was the only member of Congress to vote against U.S. involvement in both World Wars, having been among those who voted against American entry into World War I nearly a quarter of a century earlier.

On December 11, 1941, Germany joined its ally Japan by declaring war against the USA. She abstained from the vote for war against Germany.

THIS is what stupidity looks like.
