On most areas of economic policy, most progressives agree more than they disagree. But too many people with good hearts refuse to face facts about the last 8 years. This studious ignorance is not helpful. We cannot continue fighting 27 simultaneous, unprovoked and unwinnable wars. This has bankrupted the nation.
We make a difference. We cannot allow corporate cons to scare us. We must find the courage to resist. 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. http://www.jill2016.com/plan
We can “Shine with Stein”. and The Green New Deal:
“The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good.”…
“There is a power that can be created out of pent-up indignation, courage, and the inspiration of a common cause, and that if enough people put their minds and bodies into that cause, they can win.”
“Obama has governed like a right winger at home and abroad. And we are paying the price.”
“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.”
“Hillary supports unending wars of choice and would continue the Bush-Obama-Clinton agenda. More war, munitions, bodies, and coffins… from across the globe, for the corporate bottom line and on our dime.”
“Now the chickens are coming home to roost, as other capitalist powers, great and small, begin to conclude that hitching themselves to the American juggernaut is the surest road to disaster.”
Attending these forums could mean life or death to some (literally) its an important opportunity to Make A REAL Difference!

“Anyone who condones war crimes by Obama has lost sight of reality.
Barack Obama is officially a war criminal:
“Unprovoked military aggression is a war crime under international law. That is completely clear. There are no ifs or buts about it.” http://www.Peaceresource.org
“Unless and until the Obama administration decides to end its unconditional backing for Israel’s right-wing government and instead support Israeli and Palestinian moderates, there will be no hope for peace.”
“The most violent element in society is ignorance. ”

“We need independent, intelligent leaders with courage, vision, and values. And we need to look to 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th parties who are not bought and paid for by the Fortune 500.”
“What the Mainstream Media Can Learn From Jon Stewart:
No, not to be funny and snarky, but to be bold and to do a better job of cutting through the fog.”
