The Republicrat duopoly has, for far too long, ignored the most important issues facing our nation. However, principled third party candidates Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney, and Ralph Nader agree on four key principles central to the health of our Republic. These principles should be key in the considerations of every voter this November and in every election.
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. "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none."~Thomas Jefferson
Privacy: We must protect the privacy and civil liberties of all people in the U.S. We must repeal 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. “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety and will lose both.”~Ben Franklin
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 seek a 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.
