Newt Gingrich: Wholly Owned Asset Of The Military-Industrial Complex

Did you ever wonder what happened to our “peace dividend” after the old Soviet Union broke up? David Swanson of FDL explains it rather succinctly:

Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Lockheed).

That’s what happened to it. An historic opportunity was lost to the overwhelming power of the “defense” lobbies and wholly owned members of Congress, most especially Newt Gingrich.

What would things be like with Newt as president? I mean, what would he do with his time between extramarital affairs? I think Swanson gives us a pretty good answer to that question.
