I tried to get this on both the King County and Washington State Republican Party Platforms here but to no avail.
It was partially my fault as I messed up the procedure for submitting it
Nevertheless - here is my suggestion for an amendment to the national platform:
A RESOLUTION concerning U.S. federal foreign aid (financial or otherwise) from the citizens of the United States of America:
Whereas there is no authorization in the United States Constitution to redistribute wealth from American citizens (by taxation) to any foreign nation;
And whereas we believe in the idea of charity, given voluntarily and individually, but not through government force;
And whereas the idea of taxing any American citizen (many of who may be struggling financially themselves), and re-distributing the fruits of their labor to any foreign nation is immoral;
And whereas if even one American veteran is homeless or in financial need after once offering their lives and limbs in defense of America;
We therefore resolve to reject the notion of giving any aid (financial or otherwise), by the United States government to any foreign nation for any reason.
In addition, we demand that any presently elected official or any person campaigning for an elected office sign a pledge to support and adhere to the above resolution which follows closely the principles of liberty as put forth in the American Constitution and various other founding documents.
"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
