U.S. Foreign Policy
We must place equal value on all lives and focus on listening and respecting other countries and their leaders, whether they are our friends or foes. Our security lies in the collective security of the world. We must be cognizant that we alone cannot solve all of the problems around the world, nor can we dictate our will to others.
It behooves us to strengthen multinational institutions such as the United Nations, the World Court, and the World Bank. A return to the traditional, pre-World War II policy of active private engagement—without government intervention — would restore our moral and fiscal health.
- Our foreign policy shall be based on empathy and humanity.
- We shall disengage from the Middle East and our oil-centric foreign policy.
- We shall engage by focusing on education, the eradication of hunger and poverty, and access to affordable healthcare around the world.
- We shall help strengthen all international institutions.
- We shall remain patient with the Muslim world and stay out of their domestic affairs.
- We shall take the lead in eliminating the veto power of the five permanent Security Council members.
- We shall not use foreign aid (donations) to sell arms.
- We shall utilize two-thirds of our foreign aid to bring students to the US, to help develop human capital for underdeveloped countries.
- We shall encourage the American Diaspora community to replace US direct aid.
- We shall maintain adequate hard power but will not rely on it to solve international problems.
