Foreign Policy: The Iraq War
must end as quickly as possible with removal of all our soldiers from the region. We must initiate the return of our soldiers from
around the world, including Korea, Japan, Europe and the entire Middle
East. We must cease the war
propaganda, threats of a blockade and plans
for attacks on Iran, nor should we re ignite the cold war with Russia over Georgia. We must be willing
to talk to all countries and offer friendship and trade and travel to
all who are willing. We must
take off the table the threat of a nuclear
first strike against all nations.
Privacy: We must protect the
privacy and civil liberties of all persons under US jurisdiction. We
must repeal or radically change the Patriot Act, the Military
Commissions Act, and the FISA legislation. We must reject the notion and practice of torture,
eliminations of habeas corpus, secret tribunals, and secret prisons. We must deny immunity
for corporations that spy willingly on the people for the benefit of
the government. We must reject
the unitary presidency, the illegal use
of signing statements and excessive use of executive orders.
The National Debt: We
believe that there should be no increase in the
national debt. The burden of debt placed on the next generation is
unjust and already threatening our economy and the value of our dollar.
We must pay our bills as we go
along and not unfairly place this burden
on a future generation.
The Federal Reserve: We
thorough investigation, evaluation and audit of the Federal Reserve
System and its cozy relationships with the banking, corporate, and other financial
institutions. The arbitrary power to create money and credit out of
thin air behind closed doors for the benefit of commercial interests must
be ended. There should be no taxpayer
bailouts of corporations and no corporate subsidies. Corporations
should be aggressively prosecuted for their crimes and frauds.
