The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost Americans over $1 trillion in direct costs, and over $3 trillion altogether.

At a time when our national debt exceeds $13 trillion, we can no longer afford these wars.

It's time for Congress to reject any funding except to bring all our troops safely home.

Want to support these candidates?

ACT BLUE has created a page to fund all the Democrats on this list.

But that misses the spirit of this coalition. We want to support the candidates that will end the wars, regardless of parties, because citizen loyalty to party breeds candidate loyalty to party, and no candidate loyal to the leadership of a successful party in our corrupted system will ever end wars.

So, please create a page to fund all of these candidates, or go to their websites and support them directly.

Here is where incumbents stand.
