With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1992, American citizens were promised a "peace dividend", i.e. less money for war, more for peace and a good life for all. The U.S. military under misguided leadership has attacked eight countries since then. The defense budget has exploded, buying a lot of junk that doesn't work and military hardware we don't need.
This is not pocket change. The fraudulent wars and waste by the military amounts to no less than $4.82 trillion! This is money U.S. citizens paid as taxes in good faith, trusting their leaders were telling them the truth. They weren't. They lied to us! The $4.82 trillion was taken under fraudulent terms, and squandered.
Our "peace dividend" is now due and payable. This equates to $14,952 for each and every living U.S. citizen. A family of four will get a refund of over $59,800. This short book explains how we can get our money back and put America back on a path of peace and prosperity for future generations.
