Friends, we’re known as the Peace Candidate, and that’s not something we pulled out of thin air. Longtime supporters may recall our 2014 campaign for the US Senate when some robocalls went out declaring that I was the only peace candidate on the ballot.

In today’s video we talk about that and what it means to be a Peace Candidate: that you do not support the US fighting or taking part in any war that hasn’t been declared by Congress. That is what is mandated in the Constitution: Congress declares war, not the president, the UN, or anyone else. It doesn’t mean Congress authorizes war or passes a resolution agreeing to pay for one.

Congress has not declared war for 80 years, since World War II.
