Promoting Peace

I promise to faithfully promote the Green value of non-violence and promotion of peace. We live in a nation committed to freedom, yet we imperialistically build over 800 military bases in 70 countries. Our military and foreign policy has become intimately entangled with the corporate military industrial complex, and we can now be surveilled secretly by our own government. The costs of perpetual war have been paid on the backs of the poor at home and abroad, and those veterans who dutifully fought for our country’s leaders have been failed at home with poor standards of healthcare.
