The United States is a nation in debt. We have no right to send the earnings of hard-working Americans overseas in the form of foreign aid – especially to nations hostile to our own.
President Trump had it right – we need to stop letting other countries take advantage of us. We need to stop wasting precious lives and resources on endless wars.
Most importantly, the Authority for Use of Military Force must be dramatically revised. I will not stand for sending our men and women overseas to risk their lives, when those in Congress will not even risk their political career to properly declare a war. If no declared war, then no dead American soldiers. The war authority is given to Congress, not the president. We must also work to reduce our military footprint around the world in places in which it no longer serves a national security purpose.
