The US government squanders hundreds of billions of dollars each year on militaristic policies that are not making anyone safer. True security comes from living peacefully, within the Earth's limits, and ensuring that everyone's basic needs are met.
Sign the petition for a Secure Green Future from GreenChange.org. We're telling President Obama to cut military spending at least 70% and invest the money saved in education, health care, preventing home foreclosures and developing green energy. http://tinyurl.com/7hywk3
