Up till now, US foreign and military policy has been
 dominated by elite corporate interests - preserving
 corporate interests overseas at the expense of
 America’s true interests. Ask yourself - peace or empire? 
That’s the real choice being made without
your input, and without mine either.

Its also a choice reflected back at us in the form
of the choices now being made between taxing the super-rich
 or cutting benefits for people dependent on Medicare,
 Medicaid and Social Security, while the Pentagon,
 the largest bureaucracy in the world, escapes unscathed.
You have been working to change that and Peace Action
 Education Fund's grassroots network has been working
  with you. Make no mistake, sooner or later the government
 we elected in November will make a decision on how to deal
 with the economy. Whether they go over the fiscal cliff or not,
 next week the fight will continue.
Will our government decide to end the war in Afghanistan,
 cut runaway military spending, and make sure the super-rich
 pay their fair share, or will they cut Social Security and Medicare
 and balance the budget on the backs of working people?
  The gridlock and inaction will not last forever.
Our opponents are relentless and well funded. They’ve been trying
for decades to unravel the social safety net and roll back the regulations
 that protect the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.
  This challenge, as daunting as it is, must be met with sufficient grassroots
 pressure to defeat this agenda and put our country on a path
 to a peaceful and just future.
This is a fight we cannot afford to lose.
You can support Peace Action Education Fund’s work for SANE
 economic policies using our secure online giving portal.
Thank you again for your attention and work on these
important issues and for your kind consideration of this request.
Humbly for Peace,
