- The Washington Times - Sunday, September 6, 2009


We are the last industrialized nation that leaves tens of millions sick, dying or in staggering debt with no health care at a time when we all could be pooling together for the common good. Where do we get money for health care? Let’s start with the many U.S. military bases we have around the world. While too many think this military is keeping us safe, I say we should wake up and see what a huge money-consuming machine the military-industrial complex is. It gobbles up an enormous chunk of our nation’s budget.

There are enough strong democratic countries in the world with which we can learn to work together to address safety concerns.
