Carol Kolar: “I’d like them to say that they’re — that they want the Department of Peace, that they want to promote peace, that they don’t want to promote war, they want to end the war in Afghanistan, they want to bring the soldiers home. I’d like them to say that. Realistically, I know that they probably won’t. But I want them to also — also address the fact that war is the big contributor to our deficit, and it is never addressed. And that’s something that I think, as far as foreign policy, war is killing us.”
