There?s not much that?s important to me at my age except making the world a better place. What would I do?
I say we damn well better get out on the streets again. Everyone has to put their hand to the wheel and get out and get off their butt like in the sixties. We had compassion then, and we?ve lost it. It breaks my heart.
I?ve lived through two depressions, two of them. Everyone at that time was just sick
about the way things were, just like now, only it?s worse now. I see everything falling
apart- people starving on the streets, children beaten in their homes, sick people without
health care. Imagine this, in a country that spends so much on the war machine.
I?d spend the money on health instead. I?d see that children are born healthy and make
sure they stayed that way. All children, no matter what age. I?d clean the air, the water.
I?d take away all that polluting shit they put on vegetables. I?d promote the use of sun,
sea, and wind for natural energy. I?d save the forests, especially the redwoods. I?d ban
firearms. I?d take away every nuclear device man to man. No wars, ever. NOW we?re
How are we going to pay for all this? No one ever says we don?t have enough money to
go to war. No one ever says we don?t have money for national defense.
This is national defense.
