Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer on Homeland Security
Democratic Senate challenger
Congress devoted 57 cents of every dollar it appropriated in 2006 to military spending, and less than 4 cents to education, less than 3 cents to nutrition, about two cents to housing, less than two cents to the environment, about one penny to foreign aid and less than 1/2 cent to job training.
We have to reorient our thinking about national and global security. Our security depends on the health of our communities, mutual respect, just and sustainable economies, international partnerships, the well-being of others, and the ecological health of the planet.
We must bring a responsible end to the Iraq War within 6 months and ensure that returning veterans receive the medical care and other support they need. We need to improve prospects for peace in the Middle East through determined, balanced diplomacy.
