[Uploaded soon - Outlook presentation - why elections are the only way a small group can change American Foreign policy. How to pressure American politicians to vote for peace through blue state elections]

Because the only way to change American foreign policy is through elections, the only focus of an American peace organizations and individual advocates should be around the next congressional election.

If you are a peace organization

The National Rifle Association is the most powerful lobbying organization in the United States. The NRA focuses on one issue, and one issue only. They will support any candidate, no matter what the party, if that candidate supports gun rights. An effective American peace organization should focus only on American international foreign policy. This organization should embrace any viable candidate that supports peace, even if that candidate has domestic policies that members do not traditionally support.

The peace organizations should focus on only one Blue/Purple State Congressional race. Focus the entire budget of a peace organization on one congressional race in which the pro-war democrat candidate in a tight race. This will be the first step in a marketing campaign for the peace organization. An election victory that the peace organization can show to donors, volunteers, the media and most importantly, future candidates that an anti-war platform is important to the electorate and change is possible.

In a congressional election

Does the Republican candidates for Congress (including the Tea Party) support peace more than the Democratic member?

Actively pressure your blue state democrat congressman to make a firm statement in support of peace. Meet with your congressional candidate. Tell them if they do not actively support a pro-peace campaign, you will fervently support their Republican opponent.

If you are living overseas

Every person, organization and country has an Achilles heel. The larger the person, organization, or country, the bigger the Achilles heel. As the 2016 election showed, Russia is acutely cognizant of many of America's Achilles heels.

In 2016 the U.S. Commerce Department released a comprehensive report, “Intellectual Property and the U.S. Economy: 2016 Update,” which found that Intellectual Property intensive industries support at least 45 million U.S. jobs and contribute more than $6 trillion dollars to, or 38.2 percent of, U.S. gross domestic product (GDP).[1]

The more copyright law is weakened abroad, the more weaker America is economically and therefore militarily. China in particular understands this, by requiring technology to be shared and by actively stealing technology.

In the country you are living in abroad:

  • Write a letter to all of the embassies hostile to the United States. See sample below.

If you are living in a country hostile to the United States:

  • Email, call, regular mail or visit the leaders of the country you are living in. As an American, especially in third world countries, American soft power makes you very prestigious and your voice will be heard much more than the average American. See sample below.

The death of others.jpg
The major wars the United States has fought since the surrender of Japan in 1945 ... we do not have an accurate sense of how many people died, but a conservative estimate is at least 6 million civilians and soldiers.
This book "provides conclusive evidence that the extermination of European Jewry engaged the energies and enthusiasm of tens of thousands of ordinary Germans."
The parallels between "Good Germans" in Nazi Germany who supported the Holocaust and ordinary Americans today in how Americans condone the death of 6 million people overseas is striking.
