Letter about American policies

Are America's policies becoming self-destructive? When Eisenhower left the Presidency he said, "We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist." Today this industry, along with big energy companies, basically controls our government. CEOs, lobbyists, and government jobs are a musical chairs game. Generally their profits come first, everything else is secondary. Wealthy elites often hold multiple boards of directorship on various corporations, even including our media. These extremely problematic situations, have contributed to three urgent issues facing our nation.

First, while terrorism is today's greatest defense concern, it is best fought with good intelligence and covert operations, but instead we spend nearly 50% of the entire world's spending on militarism that increasingly looks like Imperialism.

Secondly, money saved by a more restrained military should be used to lower the national debt that is growing by nearly $2 billion every day. Social security, as we know it, will be destroyed without major policy changes. Our current give to the rich and take from the poor strategy is inherently evil and legislative "pork" must be recognized as unpatriotic. Thirdly, the Bush Administration oversees environmental degradations and does nothing. Today's mercury pollution of fish is but the tip of the iceberg for the environment our children and grandchildren will inherit. Increasingly, global warming is viewed as likely to bring a sudden change in climate that will cause tremendous chaos and the Pentagon has plans to shut down our borders to stop an influx of the desperate and starving. However, a massive effort at clean, renewable energy and conservation technologies might still save the day. We have two choices: catastrophe or hope.
