Missouri's 7th District, U.S. House of Representatives




Congressional Issues 2010

The 112th Congress should:
  • refuse to commit American troops to defend interests of global oil corporations in the Mideast.
  • follow the policies of America's Founding Fathers by eliminating government-to-government aid for Israel, Saudi Arabia, and other governments in the Mideast.
  • end policies against private aid to and commerce with Iraq and other Mideast nations.
  • direct that U.S. military forces be withdrawn from Saudi Arabia;

  • adopt a more even-handed approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by removing U.S. military and economic support for Israel and ending active mediation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict;

  • end support for despotic Arab governments, such as those in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

On American aid to Iraq and other terrorist nations, see terrorism.

  • Smart Bombs, Dangerous Ideas -- multi-billion dollar arms sales to Islamic dictatorships that ban Christianity?
    "And unlike some past sales, no conditions are attached. And with no strings attached to the assistance no democratic reforms, human-rights conditions or peace-making obligations the arms sales do nothing to change the behavior of the authoritarian regimes in the region."
