They encourage the “string of pearls” strategy for US bases that cause $300 billion per year to go from the US to foreign countries through lease payments, shipping of supplies and personnel, and paychecks for troops who go to towns in their host countries to spend portions of their pay. This allows other countries, like China, to use replenishment ships for their navies to spend more money on more modern equipment and move ahead of the US militarily.

Then you know which building to hit.

You don’t destroy your brother’s sandcastle by plucking sand grains from the beach ahead of time. Let him build it up first. Then stomp it and run like hell.

Those people need to self-police better and wipe their own arses for a change.

They should also include a sunsetting of the rules that give the president the right to imprison US citizens without a charge or trial. Now, that said, the fascists fought long and hard for these changes and they meant them to be permanent. These were vital steps needed to implement the NWO and a fascist corporate state which feigns at capitalism and freedom. So, there is likely to be no repeal of the tools of fascism when they are so close to completing the coup of the minds which has the fear of the people demanding their own enslavement.
