Foreign Policy Reform

Offensive Wars:

We must not attack another nation when our direct safety is not at risk. Too many times have we "preemptively" attacked another nation only to find out they were not a real threat. Our interests are our citizens here at home, not military adventurism for profits and resources. As we cut our involvement in foreign wars, we will cut our bloated military budget, focus on defensive measures, and fund domestic programs to assist people in need here at home.

No Direct or Indirect Involvement in Foreign Conflicts:

We have proven to ourselves that U.S. involvement in foreign conflicts and "nation-building" has brought zero benefit to the U.S. We cannot get involved any further. The enemy of my enemy is not my friend!

Fund NATO as a Deterrent to War:

We are not naive, nor isolationists. We must build our alliances around the world to strengthen ourselves against rouge states and states that seek power through violence. While we pull back from involvement in foreign conflicts, we must rebuild NATO.

Palestine and Israel:

For the sake of Palestine and Israel, I support a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 borders. While Israel is an ally, we cannot overlook injustices against the Palestinian people.

Stop Arming Terrorists Act (SATA):

I support Representative Tulsi Gabbard's H.R. 608, The Stop Arming Terrorist Act, which prohibits aiding terrorist organizations with any information, financing, or material support. We cannot keep making the enemy of our enemy our friend. This has failed us repeatedly.
