I believe that standing against militarism is our only in this country and the world to save our planet and its inhabitants.  If militarism is not defeated, then the necessary to sustain the and its will defeat this, that is, at least, kill us.

Please feel free to join me in any action that you can find and/or create.  Might I suggest getting involved in the occupy movement.
