He Would Say…

a military spending

If Dwight D. Eisenhower were alive today, he would say, “I told you so.”

We feed the military-industrial complex, but don’t feed our kids. We ensure that the military has funding to develop or acquire state of the art equipment, but we refuse to adequately fund public education and scientific research not essential to the military. We fill our ammunition and warheads with depleted uranium while refusing to sanely protect our environment and people. We send our people into glorified war scenarios with questionable wages and benefits and then bring them home to an unknown future with few guarantees of continued support and assistance through the military or our public assistance infrastructure.

We lavishly pay for the ravages of war but maliciously refuse to invest in life.

 

His farewell address in full:

America will make quantum leaps in society when we stop creating wars and conflicts to feed the military-industrial complex.

Let it starve.
