The Pro American Party believes our military needs to be the best in the world. In a world that does not respect anything but power, we cannot afford to have anything less. However our foreign policy should be weighted in favor of providing non-military assistance as a primary component of our policy. The use of our military should be a last resort and only for clear and limited purpose that is the best interests of the vast majority of citizens and not of the elite or special interests. Educational and cultural exchange opportunities should be encouraged for citizens and at all levels of government. The Pro American Party believes that cartons of food that say “USA” show more good will than military options and should be pursued when advantageous. When American goods are sent to a foreign country it is incumbent upon the State Department to devise a method for ensuring those goods are actually delivered to the people of the country and not simply to those in power.
Should it be necessary for the military to engage in war the Congress is authorized to collect an additional tax to pay for this expense. The immediate negative view of an extra tax will, by itself, ensure that all Americans are involved in the decision to go to war. Politicians will have to be able to explain why a war is in our best interests.
If I Had The Power is comprised largely of veterans who have great respect for our military. We want our military reserved as a last resort, not a first option. Future tenets will further enhance the status of our veterans, to create a better path for them once they return home from their military duty.
