Constitution Party on Foreign Policy



NATO serves no US defense purpose; we should withdraw

The United States is committed by treaty to defend foreign nations in all parts of the world, and by agreements other than treaties to defend more.

NATO serves no defensive purpose for the United States, and this country should withdraw from it.

It should be a priority goal of the President and Congress to insist on enforcement of that portion of the 1978 Panama Canal Neutrality Treaty which prohibits control of the entrances to the Panama Canal by any entity not part of the Republic of Panama or the United States of America. Similarly, Congress and the President should take advantage of Panama Canal treaty provisions to negotiate the return of a U.S. military presence at the Isthmus of Panama. At a time when the U.S. Navy is one-third its former size, it is essential that rapid transit of U.S. military vessels between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans be assured.

There is no constitutional basis for foreign aid. These expenditures have won us no friends and constitute a major drain on the resources of our taxpayers. Therefore, we demand that:
