Ed. note: U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) announced that she would run for president during an interview on CNN's "The Van Jones Show" on Fri., Jan. 11 (program aired on Jan. 12).  This announcement video appeared on Jan. 24 and she is to officially launch her campaign at a rally on O'ahu on Feb. 2.


We are being torn apart by self-serving politicians who foment fear and bigotry for their own selfish gain, putting themselves and party politics above service to our country and the American people.

They wage costly and counterproductive regime change wars, without considering the consequences or who pays the price.

The truth is, every single one of us pays the price.

Where is the conversation about the needs of our people? Where is the conversation about peace?

It is with a heart full of aloha that I ask you to join me in building a movement for peace at home and abroad that will fulfill the promise of America for freedom, justice, equality and opportunity for all.

When we stand together, united by our love for each other and for our country, there is no challenge we cannot overcome.
