Empire, deconstruction and revolution

“…we are now fighting 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, can only bankrupt the nation.”

Bernie talks the Socialist talk, but…

“Despite his own claims, Sanders has not been an antiwar leader. Ever since he won election to the House, he has taken either equivocal positions on U.S. wars or outright supported them. ”

Hillary Clinton and the Syrian Bloodbath

…Clinton has been much more than a bit player in the Syrian crisis. Her diplomat Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi was killed as he was running a CIA operation to ship Libyan heavy weapons to Syria. Clinton herself took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” to back the CIA-led insurgency.

The U.S. policy was a massive, horrific failure.

Sanders’ Bottom Line Ain’t Pretty…

“We need to slow down, acknowledge Bernie’s war-and- profiteering kind of record and understand he is proposing more bodies and lives for the corporate elite bottom line.”

Bernie says he is pro-war. I believe him.

“…(Sanders is) really just coming out of the closet now for the presidential race, in a Clinton-welcomed effort to help give the Democrats a much-needed fake-populist makeover for the 2016 elections. The great Socialist Party presidential candidate Eugene Debs (whose poster hangs in Sanders’ Senate office) would not be impressed.”

We have choices to make…

“Americans are sick of war. Dr. Stein will be on 85-100% of the ballots. If we, the people Dr. Stein represents, vote for our own best interests… Stein may win in a landslide. 75% of the voting public are thinking third party, With offerings like Trump and Clinton, this is our time for The Green New Deal. ”

Our New President: Dr. Jill Stein

“Establish a foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law, and human rights. End the wars and drone attacks, cut military spending by at least 50% and close the 800+ foreign military bases that are turning our republic into a bankrupt empire. Stop U.S. support and arms sales to human rights abusers, and lead on global nuclear disarmament.”

Victories of the Heart and Mind

“Bernie the Bomber, Hillary the Hawk, Donald the Dingbat, and Jeb the Bush… offer no plan, vision or useful ideas for this nation. All four are conservatives and have records which prove this. Truth-telling is not an attack, it is a political necessity, tactical priority and the base for any change which may occur.”

There are more of us…

“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 – and our ability
to tell our own stories. Stories that are
different from the ones we’re being
brainwashed to believe. ― Arundhati Roy
