Win Without War
Dear Mark,Last week we told you about an important opportunity in the Senate to turn the page on a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Senate can vote as early as today on these important amendments!

Call the Capitol Switchboard toll-free at 1-877-429-0678 to be connected to your Senator and tell them: “It’s time to turn the page on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Please support Amendment 1174 by Sen. Merkley and Amendment 1064 by Sen. Paul to the National Defense Authorization Act.”

The Senate is currently considering the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, and will vote on amendments as early as today. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) has offered an amendment to accelerate the drawdown of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has offered an amendment to repeal the 2002 authorization for the Iraq War.

Today is the best chance to ask your Senator to stand with the American people by finally putting a long decade of war behind us.

The Senate can vote at any time on these amendments so please call your Senator now at 1-877-429-0678 and ask them to vote yes on Amendments 1174 and 1064 to the National Defense Authorization Act.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
