*A good test of a candidate's seriousness and courage is their position on war, if they have such a position at all. *Cori Bush does. She promises to bring U.S. troops home, and to "oppose our imperialist foreign policy and the runaway influence of the military-industrial complex." Bush says, "We can resolve conflicts not with war but with international diplomacy."
"I believe," she says, "there is too much power and corruption amongst defense contractors and Pentagon officials. We have seen billions of dollars allocated to the military budget and yet as a nation our security concerns remain the same. Something is not right. There is a conflict of interest behind closed doors. . . ."
* Why is Cori Bush running?*
In her own words: "Our justice system over-incarcerates and our education system under-educates, while millions of children live in poverty and thousands live in cages."
Here's something else that Cori Bush said in the Netflix documentary ""Knock Down the House": ""The person I'm running against is complacent, but I'm not." She's running against uninspiring Congressman William Lacy Clay Jr.
