Senate Candidate from NY Jonathan Tasini Opposes War Funding

War And Peace

The majority in Congress in the past two elections has been elected to end wars. If you elect me I will put your money where my mouth is. I will vote against funding to support the continuation of foreign occupations. I will oppose any new wars of aggression.

I will vote No on every procedural vote to advance unnecessary wars and occupations. I will work toward the closure of US military bases around the world that are hurting our relations with other nations at great financial expense and undermining our national security—which, in my view, is enhanced not by wars of aggression but through diplomatic dialogue and economic engagement based on fair, not exploitative trade. I will speak out on these issues and lobby my colleagues to vote as I do.

And I will not accept a dime from weapons makers or other military contractors.
