Bring Justice Back to America

President Obama can end Bush's War in Iraq and transition Afghanistan from an impossible to win war, to a negotiated truce. He can end the wars on drugs, on gays and end the surge in militaristic spending; using that money to save the planet -- responsible economic leadership that will pay dividends. He can engage the best of America to volunteer -- at home and abroad, by expanding AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps. Through a bipartisan Truth & Reconciliation Hearings, Obama can bring justice back to America and the U.S. Constitution can once again be the law of the land.
