Congress: Halt Funding the F-35 Program!

We, the undersigned, demand that Congress take immediate action to halt funding for the F-35 program.

The failed and massively over-budget F-35 fighter project is a clear example of the corrupting influence of corporate money on government. The F-35 has been plagued by a continual succession of technical failures and project mismanagement and is currently hundreds of billions of dollars over budget while its delivery is years overdue. At multiple points in the F-35’s development, military officials have indicated a willingness to kill the project, only to be rebuffed by Congressional pressure to keep the project alive as a payback to their military contractor donors. The final cost of the project is estimated to be $1.45 trillion, enough to fund free college education for all U.S. citizens for the next 23 years.

    That’s also why the evolutionary truth that all life, threads, are necessary in the fabric of life, “…we(e),…”, can’t allow to be torn asunder; is central to stopping all their devolutionary processes. So, it’s astronomically worse than the quote, “With every technological advance a precious drop of humanity is lost.”— Nicolas Negroponte, Founder/Chairman, MIT Media Lab", suggests; rather a larger % of humanity is lost with every…. Thus evolutionary knowledge like: the intellect can’t lead, for, the life doesn’t follow; an injustice to any is an injustice to all; “you can’t struggle with the man’s house (mansion) using the man’s tools”, Audrey Lourdes; “be the change you wish to see in the world”, “the root of all oppression lies in (supposed) science”, Gandhi, are so very important to pass along. As well, our very existence depends on our voting for more environmentally aware plutocrats in 11-2016. reality

    We can't afford this costly upgrade, the greed of the company to charge approximately 1.45 TRILLION is ridiculous.
