Does the USA need a Department Of Peace and Non Violence and a Secretary of Peace? Should bill HR 808 be voted on and be passed?
There have been many efforts at getting a US Department of Peace and Nonviolence and Secretary of Peace established:
See: http://thomas.loc.gov then enter H.R.808 in the bill search.
Is this a good bill?
If so how can we gather the political will to get this pushed through the congress.
The bill HR.808.IH has been entered into the 112th congress 2011-2012.
The bill was introduced into congress every year since 2001.
The bills have been caught up in subcommittees.
Why? What is the problem here? We need to establish a dialogue.
If there are flaws in the bill please inform the bill founder Dennis Kucinich or your elected officials and possibly they could amend the bill to incorporate the suggestions. http://kucinich.house.gov/
Please suggest the correction in the language of the bill so it will be acceptable to make it through the house and senate. Why has it been held up for the past decade?
Please ask your elected officials to advocate for this bill to get to a vote and to be voted into law.
Does our nation want peace or not?
Do we need to find the path to peace nationally and internationally.
We are destroying the planet, the ecosystem, the world, humanity, life on Earth and ourselves with war. No one wins with war. We all lose. What is the sense of winning the war and losing the planet??
Lets go peaceful and lets go green it is our only option.
How can USA become the leader in the Global Peace Index within 5 years.
If we count the ecological footprint of all of humanity's bombing and 2000 atomic testing on Earth http://www.ctbto.org/nuclear-testing/ we will see the damage
