The Cons on both sides of the corporate aisle are not on your side.

war-is-moneyRepublicans work for the corporate elite and brag about it.  Democrats work for the corporate elite and lie about it.
And the American people are too often led like sheep into the corporate fold… or respond like lemmings… dashing over the brink of lesser evilism into endless wars for the corporate bottom line. We can do better.

Here is a great piece on Hillary (Hawk)Clinton.  Just like Obama was able to do more damage than George Bush, Hillary has the capacity to do more damage than Jeb Bush.

The piece varies, but this salient point is the rub:

“A vote for Clinton is a vote for austerity, for imperialism, and for the augmented perpetual war regime established under her tenure as Secretary of State.”

~And a vote for Bush or whatever Republican is the same thing. But we have a choice in 2016. We can vote for endless war or we can come to our senses and find the courage to ignore the corporate cons who run mainstream media. We can finally vote our values instead of our fears.

The only candidate who has the guts and determination to challenge the corporate elite is Doctor Jill Stein. She may not have the charisma of deceivers like Bernie Sanders, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama… nor does she have the fiscal power of the Bush dynasty, but she is speaking truth to power. And there are more of us than there are of them.

               Black Lives Matter: fix the system of racism

Q: Your campaign so far has been talking a lot about what’s been happening in Ferguson. You’re talking about the Black Lives Matter movement , and the issue of police violence seems to be more at the top of your agenda. Why?

STEIN: This has also been the direction of the Green Party. The Green Party has expanded over the last 8 years. Cynthia McKinney and that race, that was a wakeup call, for a lot of Greens to understand the broader agenda. We sort of historically associated with the green movement, and there’s been sort of a progressive understanding that we will never fix the environment unless hand-in-hand we are fixing the economy and the system of racism and the civil liberties and police state and all those issues that–they cannot be separated. We have become much closer as a community. I began working with the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign and that whole network as of four years ago. And we have worked together over the past four years.

Ronnie Reagan, George Herbert Walker Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jon Ellis (JEB) Bush and Bernie Sanders are ALL on the same page when it comes to Gaza, wars of choice and the military industrial machine.
