Foreign Policy

The US should get out of the U.N., all of its subsidiaries, NATO, and all other such world organizations that would impose unconstitutional restrictions on the Federal government. The U.N. should be forced to relocate its headquarters and all of its other operations out of the U.S. Terminate all government funding to such organizations. No treaty, alliance, or agreement should be held above the Constitution, and should not take effect unless approved by the Senate by a two-thirds vote. The U.S. should not belong to any world organization that could potentially require taking part in some action that would sacrifice the freedoms its citizens. No decision made by a world organization should ever be binding on Americans without approval of Congress and the President, or with enough votes in Congress to override a veto. The U.S., likewise, should not impose its will on other countries. Any kind of agreement between the U.S. and another country should have to be an official treaty subject to constitutionality.

The U.S. should avoid getting involved in foreign conflicts. Congress should have the sole authority to declare war. This is the only way that the U.S. should ever use military force outside our borders. This is also the only way that taxpayer’s dollars should ever be used to fund a use of force involving U.S. troops. The President should be the Commander in Chief of the armed forces when war is declared. U.S. troops should never serve under foreign commanders. No weapons should ever be sold by the U.S. government to any country without a peace agreement, and they should never be sold to any non-nation groups, such as the Contras or any other revolutionary group trying to overthrow a government. The U.S. should never negotiate with terrorists.

The U.S. should remove its military presence from all nations where it is not welcomed or where this would cause the U.S. to become involved in unnecessary foreign conflicts. The United States should no longer support foreign despots who utilize torture, murder and genocide to control their people. Rather than supporting these regimes we should utilize pressure through international cooperation, including volunteer boycotts. Tough financial sanctions against nations or banks that engage in money laundering or fail to act against it should be imposed. If nations do not respond, they should be shut out of the U.S. financial system.

All government subsidies, tax preferences, and investment guarantees to encourage U.S. businesses to invest in foreign lands should be immediately terminated. I am against all foreign aid and lending. Debts currently owed to the U.S. should be collected in full as soon as possible. Under no circumstances should such foreign debt ever be forgiven. No foreign entity should be allowed to tax U.S. citizens. The U.S. should get out of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, WTO, NAFTA, GATT, etc. Substantial penalties, civil and/or criminal, must be imposed upon any corporation or government entity, to include those personally responsible, found to jeopardize national security as a result of technology transfer or other actions.

Americans traveling abroad should be subject to the laws in the nations they are visiting. But no non-national organization such as the World Court should ever be allowed to enforce laws against the U.S. or its citizens.

Ambassadors should be approved on merit, not quid pro quo for political donations. They should be recalled if they do not act on behalf of American citizens or are profiteering from their position.
