Gary Swing is a longtime supporter of the New Progressive Alliance, having endorsed the Unified Platform in 2012. This year, the Green Party candidate from Colorado is running for U.S. House, District CO-6. Swing recognized early on the importance of cooperation between truly Progressive organizations and candidates. We endorsed him in 2012 and proudly endorse him now. Here is the full text text of his statement to the Coalition Against War Spending:
"The United States has been engaged in an undeclared state of war for most of its history. The real objective of American foreign policy is to maintain world domination. The United States has the most powerful empire in history with American soldiers stationed in 156 countries. Since the end of World War II, the U.S. has launched illegal military attacks against the people of more than 70 countries, killing millions of people. These undeclared wars of aggression are always sold to the public on a foundation of lies and doublespeak. In the name of freedom, the United States sponsors dictatorships and death squads throughout the world.
“We must end all foreign wars, abolish the CIA, remove all American soldiers from foreign countries, and limit the military to non-offensive defense of U.S. territory. I call for the abolition of all weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear, biological, chemical, and conventional weapons of mass destruction.
“I support a National Truth Commission to publicly expose the crimes of the U.S. government, prosecute American war criminals, and a [undertake] real criminal investigation into the U.S. government's role in the 9/11 attacks. It's time to end the fake war on terror, the fraudulent war on drugs, and the perpetual war on truth. The American foreign policy of imperialism and genocide must be replaced by a nonviolent foreign policy based on respect for human rights."
