The U.S. spends more for war annually than all state governments combined spend for the health, education, welfare, and safety of 308 million Americans.

Not enough money to run the state governments?  Blame the teachers or unionized firemen?
THINK AGAIN, FOOL!

"...all American local governments combined (cities, counties, etc.) collect about $500 billion in taxes. Add that to total state tax take and you get over $1.3 trillion. This means Uncle Sam's Pentagon is sopping up nearly as much money as all state, county, city, and other governmental units spend..."

SO, LISTEN, YOU TEA PARTY IDIOTS AND REPUBLICAN FOOLS, IT IS EASY TO SEE WHERE THE MONEY GOES:  IT GOES TO THE WAR MACHINE AND UBER-WEALTHY INDIVIDUALS.

STOP scapegoating hard working citizens NOW.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
