Alan Grayson Speaks Truth to the Military-Industrial Complex

Alan Grayson speaks: "What George Orwell wrote about in 1984 has come true. What Eisenhower warned us about concerning the "military-industrial complex" has come true. War is a permanent feature of our societal landscape, so much so that no one notices it anymore."

"But we're going to change this. Today, we're introducing a bill called 'The War Is Making You Poor Act'. The purpose of this bill is to connect the dots, and to show people in a real and concrete way the cost of these endless wars."

Watch it here. He is in our corner.

Tell Congress that you like 'The War Is Making You Poor Act'. No, tell Congress you love it. Act now.

All we are saying is "give peace a chance." We will end these wars.



  1. A wonderful sentiment. No war! Thing is since the end of WWII we have been in over 42 wars and conflicts.
    We sure love to fight! At this point all we can do is Imagine!
