Peace-Loving Americans

"In the midst of a nationwide election campaign in which many politicians trumpet their support for the buildup and employment of U.S. military power around the world, the American public’s disagreement with such measures is quite remarkable," begins CounterPuncher Lawrence S. Wittner, pointing to the "many signs [that] point to the fact that most Americans want to avoid new wars, reduce military spending, and support international cooperation" — How Hawkish Are Americans?

After explaining that our fellow "Americans favor a less militarized U.S. government approach to world affairs than currently exists," the author concludes, "Perhaps the time has come for politicians to catch up with them."

One question I've been having is:

Where is the anti-war / pro-peace music today?

I'm not saying we need another Woodstock. And banging drums 10 hours straight at Occupy Wall Street is pretty lame (such minimalism perhaps perfectly signals how lacking any musical response today is).

But who is writing the soundtrack today?

Is Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" the closest thing they'll play on radio today?

Jesse Ventura is to run for President as an Independent in 2016? Perhaps he'll be part of the solution?
