The truth is powerful.
All current American conflicts (including the West Bank and Gaza) … involve CIA destabilization, attacks, bombings, invasions and/or occupations for exploitation, extraction and extortion.
The United States sells munitions to both sides of conflicts we create and sustain.
It’s not pretty.
For 36 years we have attacked smaller and less powerful nations who have not attacked us. We have murdered millions and delivered death, destruction and disaster. But mainstream American media tells us wars-for-profit are here to stay: more assassinations of Americans without due process of law and murders of innocents with illegal drones abroad.
All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.
This is more than “less than perfect.” This shakedown is organized crime, committed in our names and on our dime because we let it happen. And these crimes are legislated, funded and implemented by both sides of a corporate aisle.
Given a choice to vote for Democrats or Republicans for ongoing wars... for another eight years… makes no sense. It’s like voting against ourselves. War is surrender.
Some of us voted our values for Dr. Jill Stein and the Green New Deal: secure the peace, seek justice and create a sustainable future on a healing planet.
Peace remains our only victory. War is fatal surrender. We can shine with good-hearted people like Dr. Jill Stein. And there are more of us than there are of them.
“If I can quote Alice Walker, ‘The biggest way people give up power is by not knowing they have it to start with.’ And that’s true, for the environmental movement, the student movement, the antiwar movement, health-care-as-a-human-right movement—
you put us all together, we have the potential for a Tahrir Square type event, and [to] turn the White House into a Green House in November.”
