Charlie Hardy on Foreign Policy

 


Most military people want peace-making foreign policies

Homeland security requires a strong defense, and good foreign relations. But since 9/11, we have made more enemies than friends in the world. It's time for a new era of peacemaking and diplomacy.

I support a strong national defense, but I am also very anti-war. Wyoming is highly militarized, including many retired military personnel. Yet most military people I have met share my interest in peace-making foreign policies.

Goal of foreign policy should be to make friends

Hardy said American foreign policy has only resulted in making more enemies than ever before. "That is not foreign policy," Hardy said. "We should try to make friends. I don't think we're accomplishing that."

Served as Catholic missionary in South America

I was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the son of European immigrants. As a citizen of the United States, I feel I have been a very fortunate person--and I've dedicated myself to helping others get the same opportunities.

For nearly 30 years, I served communities throughout Wyoming and in South America as a Catholic priest, missionary, and educator. During the twenty years I ministered as priest in the Diocese in Cheyenne, I served pastorally in the communities of Cheyenne, Laramie, Rock Springs and Casper. I was also the Superintendent of Catholic Schools in Wyoming and executive director of the Diocesan Pastoral Council. Then, from 1985 to 1993, I ministered in poverty-stricken areas in South America--living for most of the eight years in a pressed-cardboard-and-tin shack in a barrio on the edge of Caracas, Venezuela.

Rejuvenate the Peace Corps

Hardy, 72, has moved back and forth for years between Wyoming and Venezuela. He has been a columnist and is the author of "Cowboy in Caracas: A North American's Memoir of Venezuela's Democratic Revolution." He also is a speaker on foreign affairs, primarily dealing with Venezuela. Hardy said he decided to run because of his unhappiness with America's foreign policy. One of his goals would be to rejuvenate the Peace Corps.
