Senate Candidate Diane Sare Briefs Sputnik on Fight against Nuclear War

Nov. 8, 2022 (EIRNS)—Under the headline “U.S. Senate Candidate: Most Americans Deeply Unhappy with Biden Admin & Hyperinflation amid Midterms,” Sputnik ran an interview with Diane Sare, candidate for U.S. Senate in New York.

Asked why she ran as an independent, Sare responded,

“Because I did not want to compromise with either party. If you run on a party line, generally, they would expect you to go along with their platform.... And frankly, I think we have to get beyond party. The nation is in deep trouble. There’s enormous hype in the social media and the regular media to get everybody very divided. But all of us are facing hyperinflation. All of us do not want a nuclear war with Russia or China. So we have some very overwhelming common interests. And I think there needs to be a voice for those interests.”

“It says in the Constitution that the reason we have a government is to establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare,” explained Sare. The administration is

“promoting the interests of a tiny group of billionaires at the expense of the vast majority of the American people. They are not providing defense, because they are encouraging offensive wars, as in the provocation of Russia with regard to Ukraine and then the insistence of sending billions of dollars’ worth of weapons and aid and refusing to allow even when he was inclined to negotiate back in March-April, refusing to allow Zelenskyy to negotiate.”

A Nov. 2 statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry reiterated Russia’s commitment that “a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” Why, asked Sputnik, “have we heard nothing but silence from the United States, the U.K., and France?”

“I think that is the question of the hour,” responded Sare.

“I think it should be asked everywhere. And I don’t know if you have seen, but I’m very pleased that volunteers with my campaign, and even myself, have begun asking our officials that. In fact, Biden has now been asked twice at two public rallies—once in New York and once in the, I guess, Maryland area: will he reiterate that nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought? This was a group of young people in New York City, about five or six of them, most of whom are known to me, and then again at a second rally. And now I understand this is picking up on the West Coast, where a person who had seen what has been going on here contacted José Vega, the young man who intervened on AOC.... So I’m hoping we’re going to have a movement in this country where no politician is going to be allowed to get up and threaten the world with nuclear war or remain silent on the commitment that we cannot have a nuclear war.”
