Empire, deconstruction and revolution

dran_houseofcardspicturesonwallsdotcomPresidential contenders Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton endorsed, encouraged, enabled and funded unnecessary wars and avoidable profiteering for the corporate elite for the past 15 years.   

Eight more years of war is what they promised: dozens of unnecessary conflicts, thousands of avoidable drones and more troubling presidential assassinations which make murder without trial the new American rule without law.

Now Donald Trump has been installed in office to continue building this house of cards which is we know will fall.  

During a  70 year piece of time, we fought wars with 30 nations, one or two at a time, for no particularly compelling reasons.  NONE of these countries attacked America.

But in the last eight years, with aggressive military conquests against smaller and less powerful nations, we are now fighting at least 27 simultaneous wars… and have been building an empire based on more than 800 offensive military outposts. We sell arms to both sides of artificial conflicts sponsored by the CIA and/or the Pentagon.  This increasing and expanding empire, selling unending wars for profit, has already bankrupted the nation.

Fiscal collapse, coffins and chaos will not take eight years. Flogging the dead horse of wars for profit won’t work. And Trump remains a chump.

None of the above: Hillary, Donald, Bernie or a dozen other corporate cons
are not worth my vote.  I will not vote for surrender to eight more years of war.
Why would anyone?

We need real leadership and her name is Dr. Jill Stein.

She has the only viable plan: The Green New Deal.

aa2We can shut down 27 unnecessary wars and export knowledge, technology and peace instead of terror, munitions and war.

We can stop wasting resources on avoidable wars and invest these funds in securing the peace, restoring infrastructure and delivering critical human services.

We can put people in front of military profits, rebuild America and build a more peaceful, progressive and prosperous future.

When we erase student debt, deliver non-profit health care, localize banks, regulate large corporations and bail out Main Street instead of propping up Wall Street… we can stop foreclosures and bankruptcies by putting everyday people in charge with 100 percent employment opportunities next year and 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. All ships can rise.



Progressive unions across America and around the globe are understanding that Jill Stein and the Green New Deal provide an outline for peace and progress:

We can no longer allow the corporate elite to drive jobs overseas by starting avoidable wars for the corporate bottom line.

We deserve better. Unending wars against smaller and less powerful nations will continue to suck this nation dry or we can organize, educate, wake up and shake up the American people.jxgf

The future is in our hands.
