I've just been enlightened re: The Tran-Paciific Partnership deal. It's a frightening possibility! All of the progress we've made in strengthening our food and agriculture labeling could be eliminated by a closed vote in March! We won't know where, when or how the food we eat is processed. We must make this vote one for the voters, not just for the Congress. More info @ www.stopthetpp.org
Open Borders for immigrants. This will very likely double world GDP (citation: Economics and Emigration: Trillion-Dollar Bills on the Sidewalk? ). It is immoral to confine people to a life of poverty because they were born in a poor area. We could allow immigrants into our country without providing them with social benefits - it is still better for all parties than preventing them from immigrating in the first place. Open Borders.
Greater and stronger support for the State of Israel! Less support and very limited financial support for the Palestinian Authority until it accepts and agrees to the Jewish and democratic State of Israel. And to meet with Israel regarding defensible borders that will protect Israel and its eternal, sacred, and indivisible capital of Jerusalem. The Palestinians cannot set any pre-conditions with Israel before they meet with the representatives of the State of Israel.
America's foreign policy trust issues are revealed through the policies, treaties and compacts they violate with America's Tribal Nations. Stop breaking treaties, stop stealing Tribal lands and stop the food, water and resource colonialism which is the direct causation of poverty to all Native Americans, on and off reservations!
Force all government-contract defense companies to pay for the misery they lobby to create. Make them pick up the tab for every maimed soldier's psychological and medical needs, financially support families of all dead soldiers, and cover all foreign aid and other funds paying damages to destroyed countries.
Establish a Global Anti-Terrorist Strike Force, code named "Excalibur."This elite Special Forces unit would fall under UN jurisdiction and be only elite military operators, sourced from the permanent member States of the Security Council. "Excalibur"would combat extremists across all UN member state's with impunity. Their mandate supersedes State's sovereignty for missions to protect civilians & prevent attacks. It's time to globally unite against extremism to protect the weak and vanquish evil!
Shut down some American Embassies. Why do we need an American Embassy in each country? This is money wasted that could be used for US infrastructure, veteran care and housing. Also, the fact that we hire private security firms to protect our embassies and diplomats. We have trained Military Police in all our armed forced why could they not be doing this? All this is doing is making private security firms wealthy.
Halt drone assassinations. Stop confusing honor killings with political acts and branding them as terrorism. The rules where there are no rules 'in tribal areas' are: hospitality, honor and revenge. Revenge in the (tribal) periphery equates with law enforcement. Anthropologists understand this, our press does not. The book, the Thistle and the Drone explains it. Without understanding this soon Americans won't be able to safely travel.
