Peter Myers for Congress

I'm Peter Myers, the Green Party candidate for the 15th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Congress. On this blog, you can read about the campaign and the issues, and offer me feedback as well. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, and I hope you'll join the campaign for change.

Let's go on a shopping spree, America

The Iraq War has cost Americans $3 trillion, and if the Democrats and Republicans in Congress have their way, it won't end any time soon. Check out 3trillion.org to see what we could have spent that money on.

What's truly scary is that this is only with money spent on the Iraq War, let alone our needless and wasteful spending on other military expansion. How many schools could we build with each of the 700 military bases we have on foreign soil? How many people could we guarantee medical coverage for if we hadn't built each of our 9 Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, which each cost $4.5 billion to construct and $160 million to operate.

I invite you to my town hall meetings in Campbell on May 8th and 15th, where we will discuss how we can reclaim America's priorities from the hands of the warmongering Democrats and Republicans. The events will be held at 6 p.m. at the Campbell Library, which is located at 77 Harrison Ave. in downtown Campbell.
