I have been a fan of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard since she came out in support of Bernie during the primary season last. Then I was behind her trip to Syria. I am in full support of her antiwar legislation and I am pleased to find that she has an ally in the Senate…
This week, U.S. Senator Rand Paul introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act (S. 532) to prevent American taxpayers’ money from being used to directly or indirectly support armed militants who are allied with or often working under the command of al-Qaeda, ISIS, or other terrorist groups. The legislation serves as a companion bill to H.R. 608, which Representative Tulsi Gabbard (HI-2) reintroduced in January.
“One of the unintended consequences of nation-building and open-ended intervention is American funds and weapons benefiting those who hate us,” said Dr. Paul. “This legislation will strengthen our foreign policy, enhance our national security, and safeguard our resources.”
Although I am not a strong supporter of Paul I will admit that some of his Libertarian views about war and nation building are along those of my feelings….I am pleased to see that Ms Gabbard has a Senatorial ally….we normal Americans need to give her and her bill all the support we can muster.
She is showing a spine something too many Dems and most Repubs to seem to have lost somewhere along the donor line.
She has my support and she deserves yours.
