Can We Ask Bernie a Few Questions?

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) will hold a town meeting at Ocean Gateway in Portland, Maine on Monday, July 6 from 7-8 pm .

Members of CODEPINK and Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space plan to be there with a Bring Our War $$ Home banner and other messaging focused on how social & environmental programs can be funded while the Democratic Party continues to support giving 50%+ of the discretionary federal budget to the Pentagon in FY16.

If you or your group wants to endorse and join in our effort to point out the elephant of militarization in the room, please let us know your thoughts. You can rsvp on the Fazebook event here.

Why won't Bernie talk about his support to bring F-35 to Vermont? What is his true position on Palestinians? Should we not ask these questions of a man who wants to be president?

I'll never forget Jimmy Carter saying during his campaign, "The arms race is a disgrace to the human race". Then once elected prez he built the Kings Bay Nuclear submarine base in St. Marys, Georgia. I learned then 'buyer beware'.
