Here’s the bottom line:
With Trump or Clinton we were guaranteed 8 more years of 27 or more simultaneous and unprovoked wars of aggression against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack.
We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires, munitions firms and profiteers. Economists agree this military madness in pursuit of corporate empire will bankrupt the country and destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030.
We are teetering on the brink.
Our unprovoked aggression has already bankrupted the nation.
Hillary and Donalds’ proposals to continue destroying America with avoidable wars for profit are tantamount to treason.
In 2020, President Jill Stein can implement The Green New Deal, shut down the wars and rebuild the nation.
“My Power to the People Plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.
It offers direct answers to the economic, social, and ecological crises brought on by both corporate political parties. And it empowers the American people to fix our broken political system and make real the promise of democracy.
This plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes, it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”
