200 Billion Dollars Can Go Far These Days

So far, roughly 150 billion dollars have been spent on the Iraq War, with a lot more to be spent this year. That averages out to about 500 dollars per American Citizen. While most citizens did not receive as much in tax cuts, they have had 500 dollars each looted from them to spend on a war with a nation that was never a threat to us. Each citizen, you could say, is owed 500 dollars by the Bush Administration.

John Kerry, however, likes this trend. He has indicated he is willing to spend as much as 200 billion dollars next year to continue the war in Iraq. As college students across the nation are flocking to vote for him and his plans to steal their money, let's consider what they are losing.

College Education. According to Costofwar.com, the amount of money spent in Iraq so far could have given 7 million students free college tuition for four years. George Bush and John Kerry have never worried about college tuition in their lives, and they don't intend to start worrying about it in the White House.

In Ohio, where college tuition raises are becoming one of the worst in the country, the same money we spent for the Iraq war could have sent a quarter of a million Ohio Students to college.


Housing.
Students who pay taxes in New York, but who find themselves strugging to find housing, will be dissapointed to know that what they paid for the Iraq War could have been used to pay for 119,419 New York Housing Units. Again, George Bush and John Kerry have never worried where they will find money for rent. They won't worry about it after the election either--- the corporations already have it covered.

The United States takes up 48% of the world military budget. Our closest second is Japan, which spends 5%. In contrast, we provide the least of any Western Country on health care or college education.

On Tuesday, millions of students will vote for John Kerry because he said he is for change. But he has never mentioned the inflated military budget or it's connection to diminishing college resources. Many students will vote for George Bush because he told them he will protect them from terrorism. How he would waste our money while doing so he forgot to say.

But many students will vote for or write-in a candidate who is for change. Many students who want to see the military budget replaced with college tuition credits will vote their conscience. They will vote for Ralph Nader.

There are many, many examples of how disappointing Kerry is. Something interesting though -- a way to vote for Kerry without giving up our principles: join up to collectively have some sway with the Kerry administration in exchange for our votes.

Read about it on slashdot politics: http://politics.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/10/19/1815255&tid=103&tid=219

Do you think it's legit?
