Did you know that the Afghanistan War alone costs us roughly $2 billion per week? When you include the Iraq War and other military spending, it turns out that more than 27 percent of your income taxes will be spent on war.



We want our money back.



To find out how much of your money has gone to fund a war thatís not making us safer, visit our new Afghanistan War Tax Calculator. Enter how much income you earned this year and we'll give you an I.O.U. for what you paid that you can forward to your Member of Congress. Ask for your money back!



Watch the video.

See how much of your income taxes will pay for war.

It would be interesting to publish the real price of a gallon of petrol after including all of the military expenditure required to keep it flowing.

The triumph of the MIC is not debatable, and its enablers span the parties.



Each has seen the power to be derived from promising security and protecting "innocent" lives, and I don't see this dynamic changing as long as it "works."

Are the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan really protecting our freedoms?
