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.
This blog is, to a great extent, about cutting military spending and moving that money to the drastic domestic needs for it. The Ryan Budget is a proposal in Congress no matter who is running for Vice President. It would eventually trim all federal non-military spending to a mere 0.75% of Gross Domestic Product while leaving military spending untouched. That is wrong.
