This is really the job of the State Department which should be promoting peace and diplomacy around the world. Also, the Department of Defense should act like an actual defense department instead of an offense department which supports and maintains wars and military conflicts all over the world. We also need to reign in the influence of military contractors who make money off of warfare.
I’m all for making peace around the world, but the fact is, this is a complete waste of taxpayer dollars! For starters, as long as evil is on this planet, and as long as there are power-hungry leaders, there will be wars and violence. An overpaid bureaucrat will not create world peace.
We have the State Department (when it has proper leadership) and the Peace Corps. We need to have leadership in our government that embraces peace rather than war as a goal to be pursued, and humanity as a precious resource to be preserved rather than destroyed.
There already is a Department of Peace and there always has been. It’s called the State Department — where we keep all our “Diplomats” someone should perhaps point that out to the GOP/Conservatives and especially to Trump he apparently thinks it’s the department of one-sided short sighted “we win you loose” deals or the department of comply or die, our way or the highway department.
It is called diplomacy. Please stop overspending our tax money. We need to start paying back our national debt. If my household was spending that much more, in relation to what we are bringing home, I would not be able to sleep! Why are we not more nervous about our country’s severely debilitating spending problem?
No there should not be another unconstitutional department of anything government related. This means more taxes, more corruption, and more government employees making big money off of the backs of American citizens.
What a joke! Seriously, hasn’t that ALWAYS been our objective? The State Dept., I believe, is already charged with this mission. Besides, with the Idiot in charge inciting such hate and divisiveness, this would be an impossible challenge! Peace building starts from the top down. Get rid of the Idiot and, hopefully, we needn’t worry about this anymore. And who made the Idiot king? Spouting out his edicts, almost daily. His free speech edict, the most current. Allowing right-wing, hate-spouting, lying individuals to invade and disrupt campuses, I believe, is in direct violation of free speech! The First Amendment allowed for civil discourse, NOT HATRED, INCITING TO RIOT AND LIES! Stop his free speech edict immediately! Who, the, hell made him king? Last I checked, nobody!
And people, IF it is true that a sitting President cannot be indicted, (which, to me, is a totally outrageous, incorrect interpretation of the law) then we DAMN WELL BETTER IMPEACH THE BASTARD NOW, because, if he is elected for a second term, the Statute of Limitations will have run in five years, meaning we will NOT BE ABLE TO INDICT HIM AFTER THAT! He will walk free! Is that the message we want to send the world? Come be our President and you can have carte blanche on illegal conduct? So, tell me, does that mean he really can walk down a street and kill someone and get to walk away with no consequences for his actions? People, if this is true we, seriously, need to CHANGE THIS RIGHT NOW. NO-ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. ESPECIALLY NOT THIS IDIOT! CONGRESS GET TO WORK AND FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY!
We should be a Nation Building country where Peace Building is a natural extension of our policies and actions. Call me old fashioned, but isn’t that what “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” truly inspires?
