The Houston Foreign Policy Alliance (HFPA) has released a resolution that they hope will get widespread support from all parts of the political spectrum, and which basically calls for greatly reducing US military spending and intervention, while relying more on diplomacy to resolve international disputes.
The HFPA is a new left-right convergence group, along the lines suggested by Ralph Nader and Ron Paul, that grew out of HPJC’s peace conference last spring. It’s made up of Democrats, Republicans, Greens, Libertarians, and independents who agree US foreign military policy is often counterproductive, creates large amounts of blowback with very negative consequences to the US, is very wasteful of taxpayer dollars, and should be significantly changed.
