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.
Your blog has tried to steer clear of the political campaign, but the Romney push for a greatly expanded navy is too much to ignore. Romney wants to set military spending at 4% of GDP - regardless of need or other demands on the federal budget. That makes as much sense as saying you're going to eat a pound of meat every day no matter what happens to your weight or cholesterol levels.
