Eliminate the U.S. Military

WHEREAS THE U.S. MILITARY SERVES NO USEFUL PURPOSE AND IS USED SOLELY FOR IMPERIALIST WAR AND TO ENRICH ARMS MANUFACTURERS; AND WHEREAS THE U.S. MILITARY WREAKS TERRIBLE SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESTRUCTION WHICH IS THREATENING THE FUTURE OF LIFE ON EARTH; AND WHEREAS THE U.S. MILITARY CONSUMES ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF RESOURCES THAT COULD BE USED TO SUSTAINABLY PROVIDE FOR HUMAN NEEDS, THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY OF MASSACHUSETTS RECOGNIZES THAT CUTTING U.S. MILITARY SPENDING IN HALF (OR SOME OTHER ARBITRARY AMOUNT) IS NOT ENOUGH.

 

THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY CALLS FOR THE TOTAL ELIMINATION OF THE U.S. MILITARY AND WEAPONS INDUSTRY AND REDUCTION OF U.S. MILITARY SPENDING TO ZERO.

 

THIS SHOULD INCLUDE THE ELIMINATION OF ALL MILITARY SPENDING WHETHER IT IS PART OF THE OFFICIAL “DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE” BUDGET OR BUDGETED THROUGH OTHER U.S. GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, E.G., NUCLEAR WEAPONS BUDGETED THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY.

 

WE CALL FOR A COMPLETE FEDERAL AUDIT TO FIND AND ELIMINATE SECRET MILITARY SPENDING.

 

THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY WILL NOT SUPPORT SPENDING ANY MONEY ON OFFENSIVE MILITARY ATTACKS, INVASIONS, OCCUPATIONS OR THREATS AGAINST COUNTRIES ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD OR ON PRODUCING OR BUYING WEAPONS WHICH WOULD BE USED FOR THESE PURPOSES.

 

WE ALSO OPPOSE ALL U.S. ARMS SALES TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

 

THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY DEMANDS THAT U.S. FOREIGN POLICY BE CONDUCTED THROUGH FAIR, HONEST AND OPEN DIPLOMACY WITHOUT VIOLENCE OR THREATS, AND THAT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT RECOGNIZE THE SOVEREIGNTY AND INTERESTS OF OTHER COUNTRIES AS BEING EQUALLY IMPORTANT AS OUR INTERESTS.

 

THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY CALLS FOR A COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION OF U.S. SPENDING AND ECONOMY OUT OF WEAPONS, WAR AND COLONIAL OCCUPATION.

 

THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY IS IN FAVOR OF SPENDING NECESSARY TO CARRY OUT THIS TRANSFORMATION AND NECESSARY TO DISMANTLE WEAPONS.

 

THE GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY CALLS FOR REPARATIONS TO BE PAID TO VICTIMS OF THE U.S. MILITARY AND ITS WARS ALL OVER THE WORLD.

 

VETERANS SHOULD HAVE THEIR HEALTHCARE PAID FOR THROUGH A SINGLE PAYER UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM THE SAME AS EVERYONE IN THIS COUNTRY, NOT THROUGH A SEPARATE MILITARY HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.

 

WE RECOGNIZE THAT ELIMINATING THE U.S. MILITARY IS A BIG CHANGE, AND THEREFORE MIGHT SEEM TOO RADICAL TO SOME PEOPLE, BUT WE TAKE THIS POSITION BECAUSE IT IS A MORAL AND EXISTENTIAL IMPERATIVE.
