The Amherst 4th of July parade was a good place to find candidates today. Will Thomas and I talked to former Texas Governor Rick Perry about the $1 trillion spending plan for nuclear weapons. Gov. Perry said he didn’t “have a handle” on the issue yet.

Just before the 4th of July parade in Amherst, NH got underway, I asked former Florida Governor Jeb Bush about current plans to spend $1 trillion on nuclear armaments. Governor Bush said that he wasn’t aware of the plan, but he seemed interested in learning more. I explained plans for a new generation of warheads and delivery vehicles. Bush asked if I had written information and I promised to get it to him at another event.

Senator Bernie Sanders Indianola Iowa 6-14-15 AFSC Governing Under the Influence
Senator Bernie Sanders addresses massive waste within the complicated military industrial complex when asked about what he'll do to make the public interest a priority over private interest. "So if you wanted to ask me ‘Well gee, how much money do we spend on this? How much money do we spend on that?’ The truth is, in many ways nobody really knows that.”

AFSC GUI Senator Lindsey Graham West Des Moines Iowa 6-5 Citizens United Constitutional Amendment Pentagon
Sen. Lindsey Graham wants a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and end unlimited campaign contributions or else “it’s gonna ruin the political process”. Would this apply to Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and other top Pentagon contractors in the military industrial complex who use their corporate influence to drive public policy?

A one trillion dollar investment in nuclear weapons surely needs to be discussed. The interests of the corporations that stand to make bundles of cash should not outweigh the need for a stable, de-nuclearized world.

I went to Tilton Diner to "bird dog" Chris Christie. I went in and sat by myself and ordered eggs benedict done with spinach. A State-House based AP reporter sitting nearby told me, "If you sit alone like that, he'll come and talk to you." Christie did. He paused at two tables of four to shake hands, but came to my table for conversation about the Pentagon budget and offshore drilling.
