Constitution Party candidate for Oregon Senate seat criticizes McCain/Palin foreign policy

Dave Brownlow criticized Sarah Palin’s unpreparedness and “dangerous” intention to expand NATO in a recent press release. Brownlow also calls for NATO to be disbanded, saying that “whatever usefulness NATO may once have had is long gone.” He went on to criticize the Obama/Biden ticket for not offering a true alternative to these positions.

The rest of the press release, including a call to action for his supporters, follows:

“There is no provision in the U.S. Constitution that authorizes our military to be used/abused to solve border disputes between Georgia and Russia – or any place else. This is exactly the kind of belligerent attitude that drug us into the unconstitutional occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. It is time to begin the complete withdrawal of the 500,000 American troops we have stationed on 700+ bases in 130 countries.”

“Thomas Jefferson had some very sound foreign policy advice for our young nation. He called for, ‘peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none…’ That advice was valid at our founding, and it is even more relevant today. Removing ourselves from the likes of NATO would be a good start to making America, and the world, a safer place.”

Rather than discussing the real challenges facing our nation, such as the inclusion of Georgia and Ukraine into NATO, Jeff Merkley and Gordon Smith have chosen to talk about office furniture, golf clubs, hotdog eating habits, and other trivial nonsense. Oregonians deserve better. One way to turn this into a real election would be to end DAVE BROWNLOW’s banishment from the upcoming Senate debates scheduled for October 10th in Portland and October 13th in Medford.

We would ask Oregonians to contact the debate sponsors: The Oregonian, KGW-TV, KOBI-TV, KOTI-TV, KLSR-TV, KEVU-TV, the Medford Mail Tribune, and the Grants Pass Daily Courier; and ask that all the candidates, including DAVE BROWNLOW, be included in these debates so that the looming McCain/Palin foreign policy disaster is discussed.

    Decades after the implosion of Soviet Russia we are still looking for a fight. Missiles in Poland and chest thumping and bumping all over Euasia, boy we sure know how to play the school yard bully.

    If I were king of Amerika, I’s appoint some second Lt to be NATO ambassador and VOLUNTARILY reduce the USA role to non voting ASSOCIATE member ship!

    We are not the world’s police man.

    Well, you’d have to keep the military industrial complex alive and thriving and rolling in dough, so keeping the US as the world policeman would be in your interest.

    MormonGordon Smith came out against Iraq “early” to try to pre-empt something like this.
