Peace

One of the Four Pillars of the Green Party is Peace. 

At the start of a new century, we stand poised between the geopolitical conflict of East versus West; a future marked by the aftermath of the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001; the dangers of global terrorism; the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan followed by the unprovoked invasion and occupation of Iraq; the escalation of conflict in the Middle East; and the continued research and development of nuclear weapons and the stockpiling of bio-chemical weapons.

One of the Four Pillars of the Green Party is Peace. 

At the start of a new century, we stand poised between the geopolitical conflict of East versus West; a future marked by the aftermath of the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001; the dangers of global terrorism; the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan followed by the unprovoked invasion and occupation of Iraq; the escalation of conflict in the Middle East; and the continued research and development of nuclear weapons and the stockpiling of bio-chemical weapons.

In the area of trade, third- and fourth-world economies and resources are being ravaged and our own economy and job security undermined by global corporatization, which concentrates greater power in the hands of fewer interests who are unaccountable to the vast majority of the world's people.

No War in Syria - Petition

We will be sending this petition to the White House to demonstrate our opposition to the War in Syria as well as overall American Imperialism. 

Dear Speaker Paul Ryan,

Speaker Ryan,

We ask that you lead the House of Representatives in condemning President Trump's military strikes in Syria. As an outgoing Member of Congress, we ask that you use your political leverage to address an overextended American military and inflated military budget.

American imperialism has led us to a place where we are concurrently bombing several countries and still have troops on the ground in Afghanistan and Iraq over 15 years later. American military escalation in another country is simply retribution and not a solution.

It was Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower who warned of the growing military-industrial complex. We have seen this play out under both Democrat and Republican administrations, and it is playing out right now in Syria.

Please help the United States find ways to lead peacefully, to not arm those on both sides of conflicts that fuel further violence, to use more of our taxpayer dollars at home and for diplomacy when used abroad.

At minimum, Speaker Ryan, please help curtail this escalating American involvement in Syria.
