Pardon the pun, but the ‘elephant in the room’ for we working stiffs is this obscene military spending and our War Empire. If more of us do not begin to realize that when over 50% of our taxes goes toward this end, it will ultimately be our end! If one truly loves this great country and cares about our young soldiers, then we need to drastically cut the military spending, close the overseas bases, end our occupations and use the massive savings to save our states and cities. Tell our elected leaders to stop ‘dancing around the truth’!
