U.S. relations with the rest of the world should be based on respect, cooperation, and diplomacy—not war. We are asking presidential candidates to agree to:

1. Reduce Military Spending, Invest at Home 

Instead of over $700 billion dollars to the Pentagon, invest in sustainable energy projects, infrastructure, care for veterans, education, housing, tax cuts for the lowest incomes, humanitarian aid, and payment of the federal debt. Create a transition program for workers to move from military to peace-based jobs.

2. End Wars, Use Diplomacy and International Law

Invoke the War Powers Act to end U.S. involvement in the Saudi and UAE-led war on Yemen. Cease the practice of launching wars not authorized by Congress or the United Nations. End U.S. sanctions against Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and instead use peace-making efforts and diplomatic solutions. Abolish the presidential kill list and stop using weaponized drones. 

3. Work for a Nuclear-Free World 

Abide by obligations under the NonProliferation Treaty (NPT) to cut the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Remove the missile defense systems from Europe. End NATO expansion on its borders. 

4. End Weapons Sales to Human Rights Violators 

Stop the practice of giving or selling weapons to countries that violate human rights, such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and Israel.

5. Close Overseas Military Bases 

Close the nearly 800 U.S. military bases located in more than 70 countries and territories abroad.

6. Grow a Green Local Peace Economy 

Work towards a peace economy that respects people and planet — a feminist economy of giving and sharing that’s local and relational. Enact the Green New Deal and develop and enact a New Peace Deal.

7. End Support for Israel’s War on Palestinians

The U.S. government should hold Israel accountable for its violations of international law and Palestinian human rights. Commit to ending financial, military, and diplomatic support for Israel's policies of occupation and apartheid. 

8. Promote Women in Peacemaking

Uphold U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325 that calls for the full involvement of women in preventing, resolving, and recovering from conflict.

9. Stop Militarization of the Border and Police 

End the militarization of our borders and attacks on migrants and refugees. End the policy of transferring military-grade weaponry and surveillance equipment from the military to local police departments, which only serves to further criminalize communities of color.

10. No Campaign Donations from Weapons Companies

Refuse to take any contributions from weapons companies that make billions on spreading death and destruction including, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Boeing, and Elbit Systems.

    My name is Randall Foltyniewicz and I am running for President.

    1) The DOD budget will be reduced from $600B to $50B.

    2) Within the first 5 minutes upon my inauguration, I will issue an executive order ending all wars.

    3) All nuclear activity will be required to end by 2022 otherwise $1M a day will be taken out of employees salaries/fees charged as penalties.

    4) I am actually OK with weapons sales.

    5) All US military bases located outside of the United States will be closed within 6 months.

    6) All nuclear activity will end by 2022. Free energy systems will be introduced.

    7) I see zeto reason why we will continue to fund anyone else’s war. Likewise, we will move the US Embassy back to Tel Aviv.

    8) Without question, my cabinet will be 100% female.

    9) I agree that military grade equipment does not belong in the hands of the local police nor border security.

    10) I am actively rejecting any donations.

    I agree wholeheartedly with all 10-points. However, I would add one additional, catch-all comment: Become a True Patriot for Sustainable Peace instead of a Warrior for Senseless & Endless Violence!

    This is a great strategy for peace. Without a peace movement, Presidential candidates could get distracted by other issues. Our movement has to make it clear, that the people want a President with a peace agenda.
