Without an American World Service Corps, we will continue
stumbling into dumb, uninvolved, costly wars...

If the populace of the nation, which spends on its military industrial estate more than all the other nations combined, were more directly involved in experiencing and doing public policy, would the Global Village be safer and healthier?

Would you help introduce and enact
congressional legislation that would field 21 million American volunteers over
the next 27 years to do good at home and abroad if it cost

“Should we just do a test model for a few years?”
People’s Lobby (PLI) citizen-initiated American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposals proposes fielding 21 million American volunteers over the ensuing 27 years in such organizations as the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity, Head Start, Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross, International Rescue Committee, OxFam, Mercy Corps, and State Conservation Corps. Should Congress introduce PLI’s robust AWSC answer or whittle the proposal down to a smaller model? http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/01/17/18473185.php

Scared, broke, and still marching to stupid wars… Indy Bay News by Dwayne Hunn Friday Sep 7th, 2007 12:18 PM
We fall into wasteful wars because too few citizens understand domestic and world needs. Our most indelible educations come from first hand experiences. Moving Americans from bumper sticker analysis into meaningful world service does more than screeching complaints about the State of the World. Pressing Congress to enact PLI’s American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals provides indelible learning educations.
"Dividing the number of our military personnel into this incomplete list of pre-emptive war costs, supporting just each of our 1.5 million military personnel for this year costs $773,433..."

The 2% Forbes solution to a
well-armed Live Earth
Dwayne Hunn, Jul 12th, 2007, Indy Bay Media
Terrorism, poverty, climate change ravages billions. Billions of dollars and millions of peaceful, productive, heroic volunteers are needed to combat this. Even Forbes billionaires like being heroes. One of People’s Lobby’s seven financing mechanisms in its citizen-initiated congressional proposals makes billionaires heroes, by having billionaires fund the fielding of millions of American World Service Corps volunteers.
Op-Ed News Dwayne Hunn, July 10, 2007.
What better way to fund the American World Service Corps and create a Live Earth than to inspire the Forbes Richest 400 to finance it with just 2% of their accumulated wealth.

At the June 3rd Democratic Presidential Debates, Gravel, Kucinich, and Dodd supported national service and echoed points out of People’s Lobby’s (PLI) citizen-initiated American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposals. If you are concerned about our ability to handle man-made and natural disasters and our image, ask your congressional reps to introduce and cosponsor them, and ask all the presidential candidates whether they support PLI’s American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals.

In the real world, Bill and Melinda, two caring and successful individuals man the gates of the Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation will make a tremendous difference in the world. Peoples Lobby Education Foundation hopes they will recognize that money must be teamed with millions of involved Americans to defeat disease and poverty. Introducing and implementing the American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals will involve those millions.
"It's the economy, stupid..." So send the World Service Corps San Francisco Bay Indy News by Dwayne Hunn, January 24, 2006.
Our active and reserve military is bleeding. The reports come from not only the experienced Murtha and his insiders, but from more and more military reports. We can dramatically slow our military’s bleeding by reducing the growing pockets of hatred in which our military is increasingly serving. We can move toward stopping the bleeding by sending a robust corps of American nation builders.
Traditionally, Americans have been known as characters unafraid to take on big, tough, dangerous jobs. They are admired when they leave a better life for all after completing the tasks. In today’s global village, it is time Americans created a World Service Crops and used it to take on another big task that makes the world better.

Haven't we had enough Ron Kovics, Patrick McCaffrey...? In the 21st century, we need a peaceful productive army that builds not bombs nations. The organizations named in People's Lobby's non-partisan American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals builds that productive army that has yanks compete on the field of sane, healthy development. Push your Congressperson to cosponsor the AWSC, so we lose fewer legs and loving hearts.
