The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics has calculated that more than 151 members of Congress have up to $195 million invested in major defense contractors that are earning profits from the US military occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Lawmakers with the most money invested in companies with DoD contracts include Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass), with up to $38,209,020; Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen........ Companies with congressional investors received more than $275.6 billion from the government....
Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) and House Representative James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), two of Congress’s wealthiest members, were among the lawmakers who earned the most from their investments in defense contractors between 2004 and 2006, with Sensenbrenner making at least $3.2 million and Kerry reaping at least $2.6 million. The Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees both have members who are major investors in Defense companies. Chairs of other defense-related committees are similarly invested. Sen.

Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few years later he wrote: "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." - Woodrow Wilson
"Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. "---- Woodrow Wilson
John McCains constituents gave him an ear-full in a town hall meeting on his pro-war stance against Syria
Please don't support their devious efforts and call your Senators and Congress members to let them know you are against this illegal attack based on lies.
THE PLAN TO ATTACK SYRIA IS OLD Nothing to do with any chemical weapons attack
During the 2004 elections I contributed with money and volunteering time to the John Kerry campaign. Today I see with disgust this man lying through his teeth shamelessly in an effort to convince us and the world he's a caring man, in order to start another war under dubious intelligence.
Since a few years ago I found out Kerry ended up with more than 51 million dollars left-over from his election campaign, of which he invested 39 million on the US weapon's industry, the very same he kept on supporting after his election loss, when he continued voting for more and more tax dollars to fund the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
THE MORE WE SPEND ON WARS, THE RICHER JOHN KERRY BECOMES There are many other congress members and senators who also invest on the war machine, but Kerry is by far the biggest investor and the one who profits the most.
It is about time we realize the US political structure has been compromised without repair, and it is up to us the hundreds of millions of people who are producing the wealth these scumbags are squandering on drone assassinations and bloody wars, to say NO MORE!!! We can conduct our lives without the interference from corrupt psychopaths who have no qualms in placing themselves into a position of control of the taxpayers' purse strings and then make decisions that will benefit them directly to enrich themselves with war and destruction.
JOHN KERRY HAS LOST ALL CREDIBILITY, together with Vice president Joe Biden and Trojan Horse Barack Obama. This is why the Brits and all European governments have left the US alone in their intent on attacking Syria.
