With this nation embroiled in what threatens to be an interminable "War on Terrorism," an idea put forward last year by Ohio
Congressman Dennis Kucinich has, for me, considerable appeal. Kucinich, who was the one candidate in the Democratic
primaries to unfailingly promote the party's traditional Franklin Roosevelt liberalism, proposed the establishment of a
department of Peace.

Big Tobacco is now betting its future
heavily on the Republican Party
Last year  , tobacco companies gave the GOP an unprecedented
$2.4 million in "soft" dollars. In fact, the top two soft money
contributors to the GOP in 1995 were none other than Philip Morris
($975,149) and RJR Nabisco ($696,450). Similarly, tobacco industry
PACs gave $841,120 to Republican members of Congress, about twice the $422,221 they gave in 1993.
