My name is Peter Myers, and in 2008, I was the Green Party candidate for the U.S.
House of Representatives in California's 15th District. I ran in order to take the American people's power
back from the military-industrial complex, which has steadily grown over the past 60 years and has brought
us to unnecessary conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and now Iraq.
I continue to believe that the most important way we can take our country back from the military-industrial complex is by greening our country, investing major government funds into research binary options
for alternative energy and creating laws that will decrease our carbon footprint. A green country is energy-independent, allowing us to divest from our entanglements in the Middle East.
On November 4th, I received 12,123 votes, which was good for 5.08 percent of the electorate. Thank you to everyone who helped by making phone calls, handing out literature, wearing a campaign button or posting a yard sign in front of their house. I hope you continue to strive to create peace around you, and to constantly spread that peace into the entire world.
