It’s Time to Strike Back at The Empire

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

“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

paolocurtazdotitBernie Sanders is just the same as nearly every other US politician. He is an imperialist. He thinks it’s America’s job to play Team America: World Police. Using our tax dollars, he has joined with warmongers in both political parties and condoned or supported – directly or indirectly – some of the most gruesome US foreign policy decisions in decades.”

A revolution (from the Latin revolutio, “a turn around”) is a fundamental change in political power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time when the population rises up in revolt against the current authorities.

Revolution and Liberation… ~OO~

At home, American police bureaus, militarized and armed with machine-guns, have been provided a license to kill at will and our president claims a “right” to kill anyone, anywhere, any time, for any reason or without providing any reason at all.

This amoral and extralegal extortion has been extended abroad in more than 27 corporate wars of choice. And what is most terrifying: the American people have surrendered to this betrayal and treason. With innocents executed at home and abroad, we are under attack and must stand up and fight back: no fear, no compromise and no surrender.
 
The revolution has begun.
~OO~

“If I canEinstein’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution.”
― Emma Goldman

“The Revolution introduced me to art, and in turn, art introduced me to the Revolution!”

― Albert Einstein

1-REVOLUTION

“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – arainy4nd our ability to tell
our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.
Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

― Arundhati Roy, War Talk

What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
 

― Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson

 

“People have only as much liberty as they have the intelligence to want and the courage to take.”
― Emma Goldman“

You said, ‘They’re harmless dreamers and they’re loved by the people.’ ‘What,’ I asked you, ‘is harmless |about a dreamer, and what,’ I asked you, ‘is harmless about the love of the people? Revolution only needs good dreamers who remember their dreams.”

― Tennessee Williams

“Currently, American foreign policy under Obama has become a global assassination program, using bombs, drones and CIA espionage to attack smaller and less powerful nations for profit.”

And Trump is on board…

Bernie, Hillary and Obama
ARE the current authorities.
They gave us 27 wars of choice, 800 plus offensive military bases and pursuit of empire… spending trillions and killing billions for increasing expansions of aggression, attacks, invasions, occupation and exploitation of smaller and less powerful nations who have not attacked us.

“Wars of choice are surrender. Peace is victory.”

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2014/09/15/war-and-peace/

bc1Unprovoked American aggression not been working out real well at home or abroad. Police officers murder unarmed citizens and get two weeks paid vacation, while we create conflicts around the globe, making new enemies and wasting precious resources. This makes us weaker and less secure. Eight more years of dozens of simultaneous and expanding wars of aggression cannot be sustained. These have already bankrupted America. 

And dozens of wars of American aggression should not be endorsed or condoned. 
 
But so far… war trumps peace, aggression spreads and myths abound.
Too many live in personal fictions and find facts too great a burden to bear.

King Obama is not known for courage:  fear, compromise and surrender are his legacy.

 

“A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.”
― Saul Bellow, To Jerusalem and Back


No other president except Obama (since World War Two) has misused our military to bomb 7 nations and wage war on 27 nations. Neither the military nor the people in these countries we attack have attacked us. We have become the aggressor: exporting terror, munitions and wars.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2016/03/30/truth-and-lies-peace-and-war-fact-myth-magic-science-and-fiction/

james_baldwin_550pxWe spend trillions, killing millions, for the benefit of billionaires who pay no taxes and steal the taxes we pay. The Millionaires Glee Club in congress , the White House and The U. S. Supreme court ignore everyday people and misuse our military resources, catering to the concerns of corporate criminals and the economic elite while everyday people suffer, jobs are shipped overseas, infrastructure deteriorates and public services have begun falling apart.

Why do we allow it?

“People who believe that they are strong-willed and the masters of their destiny can only continue to believe this by becoming specialists in self-deception.”
― James Baldwin, Giovanni’s Room

On Obama’s watch, with Hillary and Bernie “helping,” we have become the terror.

But we can export peace instead of war.

This is the choice. Do not believe the lies of the corporate press and the military-industrial complex. These profiteers are not on your side.  It is wake-up time. We should know better. We are not a fascist state yet. Rather than starting yet another war, we have the ability to do the right thing… shut down the wars and rebuild the nation.

Tell your legislators we do not want to attack other nations when it is within our power to secure a victory in peace instead of a cowardly surrender to wars for corporate profit.

Do not get fooled again.
