We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Updated research confirms earlier studies of the number of jobs created by a billion dollars invested in the military, education, green energy, and just plain tax cuts. Money squandered on unnecessary military spending (see F-22 and USS Gerald R. Ford) could do much more for the economy if spent on civilian jobs. See our video on Smart Security.
