CAWS.us has a list of Republican, Democrat, Green and Libertarian candidates opposed to further funding of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

" It was reported that Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, David Obey was blocking war funding over the failure to pass the economic relief bill which would extend funding to aid states and cities, extend unemployment benefits as well as provide tax breaks for individuals and business."

Tell your Congress Member:

If you do not try to block the war escalation funding, I will try to block your reelection in November. If you support peace, I will support you. Please commit publicly to voting No, no matter what nice things that could be passed separately are packaged into the same vote. Please join the 79 congressional candidates from every political party who have signed a statement against war spending at http://caws.us

Capitol Hill Switchboard: (202) 224-3121. Call David Obey and thank him. And, call your representatives in the House and Senate and urge them to vote "no" on war funding.

I wonder if it's possible to block outbound calls to a specific phone number?

Hurry, Jon. Get your call to Rep. Obey in before anyone tries to block it!

Here's the list of House and Senate candidates who are pro-peace. Special shout-out to conservative pro-life Republican Anna Janek in MN: (http://www.janek2010.com/)

Only Congress can declare wars. Congress has no authority to delegate this responsibility. We must end all undeclared wars of aggression and resolve to never again intervene in the internal affairs of foreign countries. We must not appoint ourselves as policemen of the world nor engage in nation building. Itís time to bring all our troops home and close our 800 military bases in over 130 foreign countries, thus saving our taxpayers over $1 trillion a year. We should, with humility and respect, encourage commerce and cultural exchange with other nations, but refrain from entangling alliances. Aid of any sort to foreign countries can only come from individuals or non-governmental organizations, never to be a function of government, no matter how benevolent the cause. Government has no charitable responsibility.
