Dear Fellow Veterans,
We want to share four quotes from General Dwight E. Eisenhower;
“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.”
“You don't lead by hitting people over the head—that's assault, not leadership.”
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.”
“Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”
His words are as poignant and meaningful today as the day he first verbalized them. As veterans and soon-to-be veterans, we can no longer allow political elites with no military experience to dictate policy on our behalf. With gerrymandering, redlining and segregated communities, America has never truly been the melting pot it claims to be.
The military is truly America's greatest melting pot. We trained, fought, laughed and loved people from all walks of life. We visited far away lands to experience cultures that most people only dreamed of visiting. More importantly, integrity at all times was the standard.
Fellow veterans, today is the day we rise up and take political and economic control of our future and our loved ones’ futures. We are a group of veterans, historians and social tourism activists who are starting the Travel in Peace (TIP) Political Party—it’s the Democrats’ counterpoint to the Republican Tea Party. We simply want all people to Travel in Peace no matter their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation.
Our ultimate goal is world peace and to have compassionate veterans with thoughtful worldviews run the White House and Veterans Administration for the good of veterans and all citizens. Just like we came together in strategic planning sessions, we can come together to lead this great country to eternal peace. It's time for us to collectively remove the Party of War (with no veterans) from power and replace it with the Party of Peace. For those who served under President Obama, the majority of the world greeted you with opened arms and smiles, not so much today.
But we aren’t just about politics. Economics is also key. We understand the economic power of travel and the 100 billion dollars plus shared economy. That’s why we created Tipbnb, Tipcruise.NYC and TipTours—collectively known as TipNation.NYC—to assist in funding TIP Party and getting corporate lobbyists out of our policy decision making process.
We also started Vetbnb and Veterans Adventures divisions specifically to support our veterans—both as travelers and hosts. We know that there is no more knowledgeable or honorable ambassador or tour guide than a veteran. These bnb divisions will assists veterans in purchasing homes using your VA benefits and supplementing your family income by hosting our cherished guests.Vetbnb will offer our troubled veterans a vast network of fellow veterans nationwide to stay with when times become challenging. TipTours will give each veteran their wings to guide groups again in the faraway lands that you know intimately. We also will fight for each and every veteran to receive Universal Basic Income. Veterans will be the first to receive the freedom dividend when we take the White House from Trump. Our mission is to connect veterans and soon-to-be veterans worldwide, we believe this is the first step in creating Vetbnb.com. We also envision creating a climatechangebnb.com response team of qualified veterans who can assist anywhere in the world when disaster strikes.

We are declaring Civil War ll-Cyber Edition against the 13 original slave holding states with a travel boycott. We will not allow Republicans voters to hide behind their elected officials without inflicting pain on their economy, businesses and eventually their livelihoods. #ShutdownGeorgia
In 2019, pain is a two-way street. Our #FeelThePain travel boycott is designed to block tourism to Red States, cripple their trillion-dollar tourism industry, redirect that money into progressive places, boost our shared economy and unite Democrats and the world against oppression. This boycott will give us—the people—leverage over the outcome. And leverage over the alt right. We'll start the boycott against the true enemy of progress and racial harmony the sons and daughters of the Confederacy.
We can no longer wait years for government to step in. It took the entire world to stop the Holocaust and South African Apartheid. And now we need that global help again. You can make a difference today. We ask each of you not to visit or support the places that oppress us, both as an act of solidarity and for your own safety, which we fear could be in jeopardy if you visit the heart of Trump’s America. (Vetbnb hosts are exempted)
Red states clearly do not desire our continued economic support and tourism dollars. So, let’s not give it to them. This movement is growing. When California ends all official travel to the confederate states, others will follow. When New York ends all official travel, even more will follow.
America and citizens of the world, this is our generation’s Montgomery Bus Boycott and South African Apartheid Embargo. And the TIP Political Party is leading it.
The Slavery Economy Era is dead. Tippoliticalparty.com is embracing and harnessing the economic power of Shared Economy Era. Our “Resistance, Reparations and Travel Movement” not only punish the slave states we redirect tourism dollars to progressive states.
Fellow veterans, let's take our destiny in our own hands and heal our troubled and broken comrades in arms. We are the only special interest group that America owes. Together, with our 2020 Presidential candidate Andrew Yang we will ensure our fallen brothers and sisters are always treated with honor and the respect they earned. You can read all our policies at Tippoliticalparty.com Let's end the practice of brave men and women returning home in body bags for corporate interests. Or taking their lives when they return home.
Veterans, Rise up and join the movement!
