Our Political Action Committee is committed to critically reassessing the United States’ approach to foreign aid and its role as the world’s policeman. We believe that the hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign aid sent by the U.S. government each year warrant a thorough evaluation, especially considering these funds are sourced from taxpayer money. The distinction is drawn between private philanthropy, as exemplified by individuals like Bill Gates, and the use of public funds for foreign aid. The former is seen as a personal choice, while the latter raises concerns about the appropriate allocation of US taxpayer money.

Furthermore, we question the long-standing role of the United States in international conflicts and interventions. Historical involvements in countries like Nigeria, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Ukraine, are cited as examples where U.S. intervention may have been misguided. The involvement in these regions is contrasted with situations deemed more justifiable, such as the intervention in Iraq to liberate Kuwait. However, the subsequent prolonged involvement and obligations to rebuild are viewed as over-extensions of U.S. resources and responsibilities.

We advocate for a foreign policy more akin to Switzerland’s, focusing on prioritizing national interests and the well-being of our own citizens over international policing and supporting roles. This stance includes a reevaluation of the U.S.’s approach to foreign conflicts and the criteria for engaging in international military and humanitarian efforts.

Our goal is to foster a foreign policy that judiciously uses taxpayer money, carefully weighing the benefits and implications of foreign aid and interventions. This approach seeks to ensure that U.S. resources are primarily directed towards addressing domestic issues and improving the lives of American citizens, while also responsibly engaging in global affairs.
