Bernie has not been real helpful to the people he represents during his career in the U. S. Congress. Sanders has been abandoning whatever principles he might have had to fit a variety of circumstances.
He started out in congress 25 years ago. But after the first ten years, Sanders has been voting to support American and Israeli aggression and war-profiteering for the past 15 years.
Bernie surrendered to the corporate elite.
He agrees to become war-tender of: 27 avoidable wars, a rogue drone program known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike and committing murders: presidential assassinations without criminal charges, a trial, due process or the rule of law.
And Sanders plans to continue bombing weaker and less powerful (often Muslim) nations for extraction, extortion or exploitation. With this aggressive posture towards the globe, Bernie (who would be the leader of the richest and most powerful empire on earth) agrees that we should continue sending the Army, Navy, Marines, FBI, CIA or whatever it takes… to perpetuate avoidable wars of aggression for the corporate elite.
These unnecessary conflicts cost trillions of dollars and take millions of lives for the benefit of the 1%. These are war-cons who cynically watch the chaos of our decline, placing billions of dollars in accounts overseas so they can continue to pay no taxes on their illicit gains.
And the American people pay the bill, with our dwindling resources and sometimes with our lives. This is not smart and not progressive.
…. Here is the reality.
We’ve expanded the American empire and Bernie intends for this military aggression to continue. But this nearly “imperial” expansion of empire contradicts Sanders’ most passionate populist rhetoric. He pretends he will force corporate cons to bend to his will, even while he allows them to continue taking us to the cleaners while making us less secure. Instead of talking out of both sides of his face, Bernie needs to tell the truth.
“Shut-up”, You don’t have the microphone!” is not a good enough response to questions about war, peace, life, death, murder, chaos, decline and surrender.
Bernie is not a revolutionary, he is a politician. And when it comes to war, peace and moving forward… he does not seem to have a clue.
Sanders is no longer a socialist, nor is he a humanist. He is acts like and old-style Southern Democrat: talking the talk about being a gentleman, raving and moaning about economic justice but quietly surrendering to unnecessary wars of aggression. For the past
15 years Bernie has endorsed unending wars against smaller and less powerful nations. These conflicts are untenable and cannot be sustained. Sanders has signed on as a Democrat, for the duration, effectively shooting himself in the foot.
Sanders represents expanding empire with increasing wars of aggression for conquest, extraction, control and the spoils of war.
But this multi-trillion dollar corporate expansion has no way of sustaining itself.
We are rapidly depleting our resources…
in fact, we’re technically broke. Bankruptcy looms between 2020 and 2030, but Bernie won’t budge. Those who have been led to believe in Bernie (Bernie-the-Bomber hopefuls) need a reality check. Bernie is just another con. He provides self-promotion like a carny talking to a mark. (In the tradition of Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama) Bernie is fooling too many of us while he tries to fool himself. He’s out of his depth and has, so far, not exhibited any of the qualities of the leader we need.
It’s time to face facts. The corporate cons know they cannot continue or sustain the various military-industrial conquests made in the last eight years. We are in big trouble, and thankfully Bernie will never be president.
Sanders most complete explanation for his studious ignorance so far has been,
“Shut up, I have the microphone.”
The people in Vermont are watching with amazement as the Bernie show continues…
Bernie thinks more war, drones, disaster, disorder and death is the answer, but millions disagree:
Dr. Jill Stein knows we must secure the peace, stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia, halve the military budget and invest those funds in infrastructure: rails, roads, bridges, libraries, schools, universities and public services. We can export knowledge, technology and peace instead of terror, munitions and war. Stein is brilliant, has four degrees, and while smarter than the last five presidents… she is down to earth. It’s time we put this doctor in charge because she has the cure. She’s taken an oath to do no harm and will secure the peace, rebuild this nation and reconnect us with building a better world.
Think about it.
We can take our approval to the voting booth. We are stepping from an imponderable past into a spellbinding future. Lifting one foot from beneath the underbelly of the beast of war, while our other foot falls upon upon solid ground. And we know in that moment, between past and future, that upon landing… peace can be secured while we rebuild and all ships rise.
We can shine with Stein!
