Support Bringing the Troops Home

As adopted at LAMA July 2019 Convention:


WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party acknowledges that a military is necessary to protect against foreign aggression, but that it must be limited to scope in defense, and that this is codified in the Platform of the Libertarian Party which states “The United States should both avoid entangling alliances and abandon its attempts to act as policeman for the world”, and that our policies should be based on the principles of peace, as stated in our Platform which emphasizes “American foreign policy should seek an America at peace with the world”;

WHEREAS, the United States government has engaged in physical and economic warfare against foreign nations, through armed conflict and imposing of sanctions, and has established military bases in over 100 foreign countries, and placed offensive weapons on foreign soil and sea;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts calls for the immediate cessation of all physical and economic hostilities against foreign nations, and for the closure of U.S. military bases in foreign countries and for the redeployment of all military personnel to U.S. territories.
