|By not trying to impose values or gain influence in other
nations through the use of force, we remove incentives for others to attack
us and can reduce our military spending. The best guarantee for continued
peace between nations is economic interdependence, and that results from
free trade. ||We need to withdraw from Iraq and refocus military priorities
on real threats in Afghanistan and Pakistan, while engaging diplomatically
with countries in the region. As the daughter of a veteran, I am committed
to providing quality medical, educational, compensatory and mental health
services to veterans and their families.||Fully fund benefits for veterans. Stop fighting perpetual war.
Reduce 700+ foreign bases to a number we can afford. Use military for
defense only, unless we are attacked by a Country and Congress declares
war. Pursue terrorist leaders with small antiterrorist units. Get Osama.
Don't fight and die for dictators.|
