Tell Congress No $54 Billion for War!

To Congress,

We urge you to oppose a budget that increases military spending. The massive increases in Pentagon spending being proposed would come at the expense of foreign aid, the Environmental Protection Agency, the US State Department, and more. We need schools, health care, green jobs, and diplomacy, not more tanks, warships, and nuclear weapons!

Sincerely,

    Putting the profit motive aside, if the scope of current US wars, i.e. money spent, lives lost, bodies devastated, problems solved/resolved, benefits reaped/ not reaped etc. were placed into a context; a simplified hypothetical first graders could grasp, they would be able to look at each other and say, “Wait, this doesn’t make sense and doesn’t seem to help anybody. Maybe we should spend our money and lives on this or this or this”. They would very likely be able to come up with a better solution to endless war. Our “best and brightest” can’t or more accurately will not solve this problem. If it weren’t so damn sad and serious it would be laughable. Look what we’ve become.

    For my entire 64 years we have been involved in some kind of conflict!!! And not one of these countries has succeeded in physically assaulting the American continent. We are sacrificing our lives and treasures to benefit only the elite!!! President Trump put a stop to it now!!!

    Peace is the central issue of our times. End the Forever War now. It is a strategic failure and there will not be a future for out children and grandchildren if the resources wasted on the military are not redeployed to creating a sustainable infrastructure.

    I’m a combat veteran from the Viet Nam War. Look at how that ended. I took them in standing up and brought them out laying down so they could be transferred home and their families could put them to rest. We don’t need more WAR, we need to spend the money here at home. NO to $54billion for WAR! Rich people don’t fight wars, poor people do. Oppose Trump at every turn and stop the bluster.

    To “make America great” it will be necessary to make America good. To do that we need to stop endless war and shift that money to the poor, elderly, young and disadvantaged in this country. We all deserve a decent life. STOP THE GREED AND THE WARS. Take care of our own (that doesn’t mean the greedy 1%’ers who will never have enough money to satiate them). Time to leave Manifest Destiny behind and move into an Humanitarian Era.

    I just read an article that claimed the Pentagon cannot account for a billion $ worth of weapons in the Mideast. I recall Rumsfeld on national TV telling the American people that 2 plus trillion could not be accounted for just prior to 9-11. More money? Hell no.
