“…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.”
“Since the agreement will encourage off-shoring of investments and jobs and will do nothing to stop currency manipulation, the likelihood of a favorable result from the TPP corporate trade agreement is slim. The TPP should be rejected.” ~David Delk
“…(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.”
“For my campaign to succeed, it’s critically important that we get on the ballot across the country so we can give America a real choice in November.”
“A vote for Clinton is a vote for austerity, for imperialism, and for the augmented perpetual war regime established under her tenure as Secretary of State.”
“The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good. The clock is ticking. It’s in our hands.” ~Dr. Jill Stein
“Sanders not only defends military contracts that benefit his constituents in Vermont, he also joined the 100 to 0 vote in the Senate to give unalloyed moral and political support to the state of Israel during its most recent bombing campaign against Gaza.”
The way to stop the killing is to stop the killing. A primary example is the death penalty. It is now illegal in 18 states but 32 states keep murdering prisoners anyhow. Some killed are innocents who committed no crime.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So if you lose in this nomination fight, will you support the Democratic nominee?
SANDERS: Yes. I have in the past.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Not going to run as an independent?
SANDERS: No, absolutely not. I’ve been very clear about that.
Bernie Sanders is this election’s Democratic sheepdog.
“Our generation is on the verge of the most profound catastrophe the human species has ever faced.”
We make a difference. So let corporate copy-cats vote their fears if they must. But we are under attack and it’s time we stand up and fight back. No justice, no peace. No fear, no compromise and no surrender. We can Shine with Stein. 😉

Stein is endorsed for President by Noam Chomsky, a linguist, author and activist, and by Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and war correspondent, among others. There are good reasons why the best and brightest support Dr. Stein. She asks the right questions, knows the answers and is willing to risk challenging the war machine. We should have her back.

“The evidence will show in this case that this did not happen as the deputies described it,” said Cameron Sehat, attorney for Parker’s family. “Dante was not resisting and was not combative. The evidence will further show that the amount of force, specifically the application of the Taser, in the manner in which Dante was restrained was unnecessary, unreasonable and excessive.”
