Cost of the War in Iraq
Our recent warring
policies have spiraled us so deeply in debt that even investments that
save us billions or trillions in the future must convince a significant
percentage of Americans, who lack the vision to invest now to have a
prosperous, less costly future, and smarter, worldly-experienced based
public policy, to support a cost-effective AWSC.
By ramping up to one
million AWSC volunteers over the seven year start-up, the AWSC is acting
as a small, model program. This also gives visionary leadership
time to educate the Forbes 400 and non-tax paying corporations on
how they can voluntarily step up to help fund a program that will right
the State of Our Union and World.
As deeply indebted nation, how do we pay for the investment in a
robust American World Service Corps?
This page gives you some of the funding answers that are called

Politicians continuously lobby America’s richest to finance
their image making campaigns. In

In 2008 their net worth was $1.57 trillion. Their
average net worth is $3.9 billion.
American citizens demand that their presidential candidates and other
elected reps lobby America's Richest to annually "donate"
under 2% of
their untapped wealth to underwrite the total cost of fielding the AWSC
for 27 years?
Which of the presidential
and congressional candidates would refuse to lobby the richest Americans
to invest in America’s future by having them fund a million Americans a year building
stability at home and abroad?
It is surprising to most that the Forbes 400 have set aside minuscule amounts for charity,
Should you support those candidates who refuse to lobby the
richest Americans to invest in the AWSC?
