Nelson-Pallmeyer wise on foreign policy
Before Bush’s Iraq war, Barack Obama attempted to head off the disaster that he foresaw by addressing the Illinois Legislature.
At the same time, a professor at the University of St. Thomas, Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, toured Minnesota warning of the disastrous consequences he foresaw. Jack is the only candidate for U.S. Senate from Minnesota to oppose this illegal attack on innocent people from the beginning.
He has studied and worked in many foreign countries, where he experienced the effect of U.S. imperial foreign policy on the peoples of the world. As a result, he offers a foreign policy agenda heavier with cooperation and lighter with aggression. He is the only U.S. senatorial candidate to advocate a decrease in U.S. military spending, which is greater than all that of other nations combined, something the majority of Americans have advocated for decades.
A professor of peace and justice studies, Nelson-Pallmeyer has studied, taught and written on issues vital to America and the world. He arrives at these positions from his personal experience rather than political expediency.
Jack, a friend of and adviser to Paul Wellstone, continues the Wellstone legacy with his articulate ability, his intellectual curiosity, and his passion and compassion.
