FOREIGN POLICY

    • DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE GUIDING INTENT: THE PEOPLE FORMED SOVEREIGN STATES TO SECURE THEIR INALIENABLE RIGHTS, AND THE SOVEREIGN STATES FORMED AN INDEPENDENT UNION TO ENSURE THE CONTINUATION OF THEIR STATET'S SOVEREIGNTY.
  • CONSTITUTIONAL FACTS ON TREATIES: ARTICLE 6 SECTION 2, TREATIES ARE THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND AND ARTICLE 2 SECTION 2 TREATIES ARE MADE WITH THE CONCURRENCE OF THE SENATE
  • CONSTITUTIONAL FACTS ON WAR AND DIPLOMACY: ARTICLE 1 SECTION 8 GRANTS CONGRESS THE POWER TO DECLARE WAR AND ARTICLE 2 SECTION 2 GRANTS THE U.S. SENATE THE POWER TO GIVE ADVICE AND CONSENT FOR AMBASSADORIAL APPOINTMENTS

PEACE THROUGH TRADE AND DIPLOMACY


POLICY POSITION ON TREATIES: AVOID, EXIT, REVISE, OR RESTRAIN TREATIES THAT UNDERMINE U.S. INDEPENDENCE, STATE SOVEREIGNTY, AND INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS.  EXAMPLE: NATO IS REACHING FAR BEYOND ITS ORIGINAL INTENT AND IS NOW WORKING TO SET LARGER AGENDAS IN AREAS SUCH AS ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS WHICH MAY LEVERAGE THE POWER OF THE NATO TREATY TO INAPPROPRIATELY INFLUENCE DOMESTIC AFFAIRS.

POLICY POSITION ON WAR: WAR RARELY SERVES THE PEOPLE AND USUALLY RESULTS IN THE DEATH AND DISABILITY OF THE PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES, THEREFORE TRADE AND DIPLOMACY WITH INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES SHOULD BE PROMOTED AND EMPHASIZED.  WAR SHOULD ONLY BE ENGAGED IN WHEN U.S. INTERESTS (U.S. INDEPENDENCE, SOVEREIGNTY OF THE STATES, AND INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS) ARE TRULY IN JEOPARDY.  EXAMPLE: ESCALATION WITH RUSSIA IN UKRAINE HAS BEEN INAPPROPRIATE, AND WAR WITH RUSSIA IS CERTAINLY NOT IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE UNITED STATES, THE SEVERAL SOVEREIGN STATES, OR THEIR PEOPLE.
