Foreign Policy

For too long, U.S. Foreign Policy has been defined by erratic decisions that have upended our traditional alliances and created extreme upheaval. Rash actions, such as rushing into military action without understanding the long-term implications for a particular region, must be prevented. Entanglement in forever wars causes hardship to our service-members and their families, diverts resources for domestic priorities and has too often caused further destabilization of areas around the world. Effective foreign policy requires the United States to take a more proactive and diplomatic role within our global community in promoting peace, creating stabilization through effective foreign aid, protecting human rights, and ensuring open channels of communication with international partners and organizations.
