Tulsi Gabbard a Patriot for President
Tulsi Gabbard is running for POTUS. She is currently serving as the U.S. Representative for Hawaii's 2nd congressional district.
Tulsi served in a field medical unit in a combat zone in Iraq from 2004 to 2005 and was also deployed to Kuwait from 2008 to 2009.
Gabbard was a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee until February 2016, when she resigned to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination.
Gabbard opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership. She is critical of interventionism in Iraq, Libya, and Syria. She also opposed the attempts to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power by force.
Below is one of her campaign videos:
Serving 6 years in Congress and as a member of the Armed Services, Homeland Security, and Foreign Affairs Committees, Tulsi has been a leading voice fighting to end regime change wars.
According to her campaign site:
She is a champion for protecting our environment, ensuring clean water and air for generations to come, investing in infrastructure and a green energy economy, civil liberties and privacy, support for small businesses, criminal justice reform, sustainable agriculture and breaking up the big banks. She has approached every issue through the lens of what will best serve the American people, secure our country, and promote peace.
Regime change wars are bankrupting our country and our moral authority. We need to redirect those resources into a renewable, sustainable economy that works for everyone and bring about an era of peace. We must put service above self and reclaim our great democracy from the forces of hatred and division.
_ Tulsi Gabbard on Syria and Regime Overthrow efforts of the US:
“Our military’s mission and purpose is to keep the American people safe. Our troops deployed to Syria initially to work with the Kurdish forces on the ground to go after and defeat ISIS, and that mission has largely been accomplished. Unfortunately, as this was happening since 2011, covertly initially with the CIA, there was a regime change war that was launched during that time as part of that war, and many of you might not be aware of it but our taxpayer dollars were being used to provide both direct and indirect support to terrorist groups in Syria like Al Qaeda and others in order to go in and topple the Assad government.
I had a chance to go to Syria where I heard from the Syrian people, I heard from religious leaders who pleaded and begged for the United States to stop its support because they knew whether there were some that supported the Assad government, and others wanted to see him go, they knew that if the United States and other countries were successful in this regime change war the most powerful force on the ground would fill that vacuum and the most powerful force were these terrorist groups whose sole mission was to wipe out Christians and other minority groups…”
To date, the U.S. has spent over $6 trillion dollars from post-9/11 related conflicts around the world since 2001.
During Obama's 8 years America deliberately toppled the Egyptian government and installed the Muslim Brotherhood (which itself was overthrown), toppled Libya, and attempted to topple Syria through supporting the most inhumane and heinous terrorist groups in the region, these are all verifiable facts.
No one knows the truth of this better than Tulsi Gabbard. And she wants to ensure such wanton destabilization and destruction is never again approved of by a sitting President.
Tulsi even has her supporters outside of the Democratic Party, Ron Paul is a supporter and believer:
“Tulsi Gabbard is by far the very, very best,” Ron Paul said. “She is very, very liberal when it comes to economics. We probably wouldn’t agree with too much on economics. But she is good on foreign policy. She does not want these engagements, which is an economic issue. We’d save a lot of money by not being engaged.”
“But she’s the most intelligent, and would be the best. If we had to pick one of them to be our president, I think she would be giving us the best chance for bringing about peace,” he added.
