Fight the War Economy

To be a visionary leader is to serve the highest good for the most number of citizens who put you in office. The United States, however, has had a war economy since WW II that hurts more of us than it helps -- the arms industry and its affiliates favor the wealthy few while killing untold numbers of people abroad. Today's war economy influences everything that's important to us -- our domestic economy, our foreign policy and our image in the world. Obama's administration should curb the U.S. war economy to clear the way for universal health care, new energy technologies and peace.
