5. "...than to waste all our money on wars?"
Edited on Tue Aug-19-08 11:32 AM by KansDem
$3,000,000,000,000 (Iraq war) \ 300,000,000 Americans = $10,000 for every American man, woman, and child.

Just think of what we could have done with that $10,000:

A family of four would have $40,000--
1) Send children to college
2) "Green" a house with solar panels and other renewable energies
3) Buy a new home
4) Pay off debt (student loans)
5) Buy two Priuses
6) Establish IRAs for medical care and retirement
edited to add: 7) Start a new business

But what do we have to show for Bush's invasion?
