Bernie Sanders has a very public record, in the congressional record. He votes to support the expansion of empire through wars for profit.
The truth matters. Even when, for some people, the truth may be too painful to bear.
Bernie has said very clearly that his presidency is based on a platform financed by higher taxes along with dozens of avoidable wars, unnecessary drones, illegal presidential assassinations and an expanding empire with more than 700 offensive military outposts. Even though this house of cards, spending trillions and killing millions for billionaires and profiteers… cannot stand, Bernie agrees with Clinton, Trump and myriad Republicans that unending wars for profit, against smaller and less powerful nations, is an appropriate American agenda. This agenda will bankrupt the nation while creating new enemies and making us less secure. Flogging the dead horse of unending wars is unsustainable.

Spending trillions on avoidable wars only “trickles down” as debts, coffins, blood or worse. We have been tricked and trickled on long enough.
Instead of signing on for eight more years of war, we can find the courage to vote our values instead of our fears. War is too much of a burden to bear. Wars on smaller and less powerful nations are a surrender to the greed of the corporate elite. Peace is victory.
Fool me once…
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
When there is no justice there can be no peace. We must find the courage not to surrender our values. There can be no compromise with the corporate cons. And we don’t have to take it any more.
