I encourage Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, and real Americans to oversee major reductions in USA Defense and related spending over the next decade. We need to rebuild America the right way– and wasting trillions per year on present and past wars and on nearly a thousand military bases around the world is not necessary in 2012.–KAS for President in Iowa in January

Dear Kevin,

Congressional hawks and their deep pocketed allies from the military-industrial-complex are preparing an all-out effort to defend an obscenely large Defense budget from cuts that are now scheduled to kick in. They are joined by Presidential candidates like Mitt Romney who are attacking the Obama administration for withdrawing all US combat troops from Iraq and Pentagon officials who to keep tens of thousands of troops in Afghanistan well beyond 2021. Not to mention those who are pushing for war against Iran.

Now, more than ever, the message “Enough is enough!” needs to be delivered in Washington DC. With your continued support, it WILL be. But only if you are willing to step up now and join us on the eve of an extremely important year.

Help us fight back against war-mongering in 2012 by donating to Win Without War today!
The stakes could not be larger.

The inevitable consequences of a militarized foreign policy abroad and pork-barrel politics at home have become painfully obvious to anyone paying attention. And that’s the point – the defenders of an obscene and indefensible status quo are counting on Americans to NOT be paying attention. And, if they are, to be scared into believing that the United States will be heading to hell in a hand-basket if long overdue changes are finally made.

The fact is, these changes are NOT going to happen simply because they are so obvious. They will happen because we DEMAND that they happen and because those responsible are held fully accountable.

That’s where you come in! Your support enables the voices of the rest of us to be heard in and out of Congress. And because of that support, defenders of the military-industrial-complex are on the defensive. We can reign in this runaway defense budget and the militarism that it fuels, but only if you make your voice heard by pitching in now to Win Without War.

While Americans struggle to rebuild our economy, Congress keeps wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on military spending that does nothing to keep America safe. And every day the drums of war beat louder and louder as war hawks try to extend indefinitely our military presence in Afghanistan and drag us to war with Iran.

We need you to help us take them on and turn our country around. There has never been a greater opportunity to do so.

Please join us with a year-end tax deductible contribution to Win Without War.

Let’s make “Peace on Earth” more than an expression.

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Thanks!

    Kevin,

    If it doesn’t help billionaires and huge corporations, Republicans can’t be bothered.

    John Boehner’s radical Republicans left town rather than pass a bill to protect middle class families from a $1,000 payroll tax hike. But Senate Democrats stood firm. Boehner caved. The interests of the 99 percent were protected.

    This time.

    10 Senate races are dead heats. If Republicans flip 4, they will seize complete control of Congress. We wouldn’t be able to stop their next attack on the middle class.

    That’s why we must stop them now. And we only have 4 days to do it.

    We’re still $234,000 short of meeting our Dec. 31 FEC deadline. If we miss this goal, the first stories of 2012 – election year – will be how Democrats fell short. We will lose momentum. Republicans will surge. We can’t let that happen.

    Can you give $5 or $10 right now? We can’t stop the Republicans without your help.

    We’ve reached the turning point in the upcoming election. The Iowa caucuses are only days away. This is when we grab momentum – or cede it to the Republicans.

    This is when choices are made. We can have a fighter for the middle class Elizabeth Warren – or Wall Street’s favorite senator Scott Brown. We can have a safety net beneath us – or nothing but bootstraps. We can strengthen the middle class – or favor billionaires by shifting the burden onto workers’ backs.

    I need you to be part of this choice. Join us. The DSCC relies on its more than 500,000 supporters to elect the Elizabeth Warrens, defeat the Scott Browns and ensure that the middle class has a voice in the
