Click Here and receive a free copy of “Vote Like You Mean It”, a comprehensive plan for taking back our democracy. This is how we rein in the defense department, hold our war mongering politicians accountable, and get a Peace Dividend refund of $14,952 payable to each and every citizen of the U.S. .

Yes, we have a plan. And we want YOU to be part of it!

1992 . . . The Promise

1992 . . . The Promise

With the USSR gone and the cold war over, optimism about the future filled the air. Peace would break out all over. The U.S. could dedicate its resources to improving the lives of everyday Americans. Better schools, parks, communities. A renewal of the American Dream would be funded by a “peace dividend”.

Defense Budgets

Defense Budgets

Since 1992, 16 of 24 annual defense budgets have increased significantly. This year’s “official” defense budget is almost double what it was in 2000. The U.S. now spends more on preparation for war than the rest of the entire world combined.

Military Waste

Military Waste

The amount of military waste is mind-boggling. By its own admission, the DOD can’t account for $8.5 trillion allocated to the military since 1996.

Afghanistan & Iraq

Afghanistan & Iraq

So far the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq have claimed 6,000 American lives, and cost $1.5 trillion. Experts estimate these illegal, unnecessary wars will end up costing taxpayers $4 to $5 trillion.

Endless War

Endless War

America has been at war for 223 of its 240-year history. With Afghanistan still going, renewed war in Iraq, cries for attacking Syria, provocative NATO war games, and Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”, there’s no end in sight.

The Peace Dividend

The Peace Dividend

The Peace Dividend refund of tax payer money comes to $14,952 for each and every U.S. citizen. For a family of four, this is almost $60,000 due from the U.S. Treasury.
