Imagination is the Cure…

If we invest in alternative energy, we can establish colonies on the moon and explore the stars.

Humans are carbon-based beings.  And we are NOT suffering from overpopulation.

This is a myth.

We can shut down wars of choice and reinvest those funds in infrastructure, alternative energy, education, health care, housing and peace. We have solutions.

We need not go back to living in caves to survive. We have viable solutions, but crazy people spend trillions on war… making sustainable alternatives impossible.

I can ride my bicycle down to the creek and go fishing, get in my electric truck and drive across the nation, sail a ship across the ocean and fly a solar-powered plane anywhere on the planet. Investing in alternative energy, we can establish moon colonies and explore the stars.

We are young, we humans beings… and it’s too early to write us off.

Technology is not the problem. War, greed and stupidity are the problems.

We can shut down the wars and hold the cons accountable by organizing, educating and agitating.  This has been working across human history.

Overpopulation_Myth_New_Zealand“In fact, our rates of growth are declining. Between 1950 and 2000, the world population grew at a rate of 1.76%. Between 2000 and 2050, it is expected to grow by 0.77 percent.[3] So yes, because 0.77 is greater than zero, it is a positive growth rate, and the world population will continue to grow.

Truth is…

“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 it comes from both sides of the corporate aisles.

Nothin’ but the truth

how-is

Truth and Lies;
Peace and War;
Fact, Myth, Magic,
Science and Fiction…

 

Over time we find small truths, big lies, radical science and brilliant ideas.  But so far war trumps peace, aggression spreads and myths abound. Too many live in personal fictions where facts are too great a burden to bear.

War is not the answer…

Election year nonsense can be very painful.

kingtrumpElection year nonsense can be very painful.
The Republican party bragged about wanting to spend trillions killing millions in avoidable wars for billionaires… and the Democratic party lied about wanting to spend trillions killing millions in avoidable wars for billionaires.



With Trump, Clinton or Obama… this was a losing proposition. 

81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_


We had two actual choices:

One choice was Trump or Clinton for wars on the road to ruin

 

The other choice was Dr. Jill Stein and The Green New Deal: securing the peace and investing in people, progress and the planet.

War was not the answer. 

angrytrump


But mainstream media represented the corporate elite and gave us entertainment instead of hard news.

So we got Trumped.
 

Now that the deed is done, we can’t pretend anymore.
We can secure the peace and rebuild the nation or let the bottom fall out.  


Time to organize.   Si se puede.

Stein and Baraka offered Green New Deal for peace, people and planet Earth ~OO~

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire.

stein3Who is Jill Stein?

Jill Ellen Stein was born May 14, 1950.  She is an American physician, activist and was the Green Party’s nominee as our next President of the United States

What does she stand for? 

jill-stein-750Before the election last November, Dr. Jill Stein held the current record for most votes ever received by a woman candidate for President of the United States in the general election.

She is a mother, an organizer, a physician, and a pioneering environmental-health advocate. She helps lead initiatives to fight environmental racism and injustice, promote healthy communities, strengthen local green economies and revitalize democracy. She has helped us win victories in campaign finance reform, racially-just redistricting, green jobs and the cleanup of incinerators, coal plants, and toxic threats. She was a principal organizer for the Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit.


How can Dr. Stein turn the ship of state from war to peace?   

stein-caucus-articleInlineJill received several awards for health and environmental protection including: Clean Water Action’s “Not in Anyone’s Backyard” Award, the Children’s Health Hero” Award, and the Toxic Action Center’s Citizen Award. Jill has appeared as an environmental health expert on the Today Show20/20Fox News, and other programs. She also served on the board of directors for Physicians for Social Responsibility.

She is the co-author of two widely-praised reports,  In Harm’s Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development, published in 2000, and Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging, published in 2009.  The first of these  has been translated into four languages and is used worldwide as a community tool in the fight for health and the environment. The reports connect the dots between human health, social justice, a healthy environment and green economies.

news3-1Jill was born in Chicago and raised in Highland Park, Illinois. She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1973, and from Harvard Medical School in 1979. She received a Masters Degree from Harvard Medical School and completed 3 BA degrees, in Psychology, Sociology, and Anthropology at Harvard University.
She lives in Lexington with her husband, Richard Rohrer, also a physician. They have two grown sons in medical school and residency training.

Ajamu Baraka


Here’s the bottom line:

81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_

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.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2016/07/22/trump-or-clinton-will-sink-all-ships/

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.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2016/04/15/its-time-to-strike-back-at-the-empire/

Our unprovoked aggression has already bankrupted the nation.

Hillary and Donalds’ proposals to continue destroying America with avoidable wars for profit is tantamount to treason.

https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/2014/05/11/eight-wars-of-aggression/


In 2020, Our New President: Dr. Jill Stein can implement The Green New Deal, shut down the wars and rebuild the nation.  

DSC_0635-copy.14236.widea.0

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.”

We must vote our values

Corporate wars and profiteering have already bankrupted the nation. If we continue down this road, there will be a global recession while we are in full retreat.

We had a solution!  We could have voted for Jill Stein and the Green New Deal.

“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.”

But instead we are in dangerous waters with a racist chump at the helm.

3rd Parties… or 7th, 8th, 9th and more!

Dr. Jill Stein has a plan for revolutionary change. She wants to put everyday people back in charge.

aa2

We deserve better than Ronnie Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Trump, and avoidable wars for profit.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/…/why-jill…/

Our educational system is failing. High school graduates cannot do college level work. Each year Systemic decline continues and next year it will be worse than it is today.
We deserve better.

Instead of non-profit, single-payer, common sense health care, we got mandated payments to deep-pocket insurance cartels who continue to hold the purse-strings and control the increased costs.

The health “insurance” we get is increasingly un-affordable and leaves 31 to 35 million Americans at risk, uncovered, unprotected, vulnerable and losing fortunes, homes and lives.
peace5This cannot continue.

We spend trillions fighting avoidable wars chosen by advocates on one side or another of the corporate aisle. Most of the biggest players (like the 16 big guys who make billions and pay no taxes) are savvy enough to payoff both corporate parties to hedge their bets.

Our only option is to pay attention. Between 60 and 75% of the voting public say, at this point, they are ready and willing to seriously consider a third party.

This is good and bad.

The bad part is Bernie Sanders will rope people into the lesser evil myth (with a blind eye to Israeli and corporate aggression.) The truths he will tell about banks are useful, but when he folds up his tent and supports Hillary, we are left in the lurch with nothing but Clinton and a Bush.

But we have a bird in the hand!

Dr. Jill Stein has a plan for revolutionary change. She wants to put everyday people back in charge.

president steinDr. Stein is recognized as a global leader in health care and people. She advocates for peace and a restoration of human services at home and abroad. As we transition to peace, instead of transitioning between wars, we can rebuild, renew and replace failing infrastructure. This will create jobs at home, good-will abroad and ships will rise.

During and after this transition, we will retool for peace and shut down ambitious, boneheaded and counterproductive corporate power grabs and abuses of the public trust. Savvy firms will reinvest and we can begin exporting technology, information, education and peace… instead of munitions, aggression, studious-ignorance and war. It’s time to stop fooling ourselves, war is surrender and peace is victory.    http://www.jill2016.com/plan


Hillary, Donald, Barack & Bernie Support Wars for Corporate Profit

“During her interview… Dr. Stein quoted Alice Walker: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”

Obama’s and Clinton’s doctrine of covert and proxy war, by which they still tout drone strikes, JSOC death squads, CIA coups and local proxy forces as politically safe “tools” to project U.S. power across the world without the deployment of U.S. “boots on the ground,” has destroyed Libya, Yemen, Syria and Ukraine, and left U.S. foreign policy in an unprecedented crisis.

scaryclintonHanging over this escalating, out-of-control crisis is the existential danger of war between the U.S. and Russia. Russia has 14,700 nuclear weapons with the destructive power to end life on Earth as we know it.  With her demonstrated, deeply-held belief in the superiority of threats, brinksmanship and war over diplomacy and the rule of law, surely the last thing the world needs now is Hillary Clinton playing chicken with the Russians while the fate of life on Earth hangs in the balance.

https://consortiumnews.com/2016/02/19/hillary-clinton-and-the-dogs-of-war/


“Sanders criticized Hillary Clinton for her support of the Iraq war, declaring, “On foreign policy, Hillary Clinton voted for the war in Iraq…Not only I voted against, I helped lead the effort against what I knew would be a disaster.”

bernieisangrySanders’ assertion about Clinton is true, but the difference between the two candidates on war is hardly substantial and his political closet is filled with just as many skeletons. Notably he supported NATO’s bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, a stance that caused one of his staffers to resign in protest.

…The attack on Kosovo is hardly the extent of Sanders’ hawkishness. While it’s true he voted against the Iraq war, he voted in favor of authorizing funds for that war and the one in Afghanistan. More recently, he voted in favor of a $1 billion aid package for the coup government in Ukraine and supported Israel’s assault on Gaza. At a town hall meeting he admitted that Israel may have “overreacted,” but he blamed Hamas for the entire conflict. When an audience member asked why he refused to condemn Israel’s actions, he told critics: “Excuse me! Shut up! You don’t have the microphone.”

He is a dim racist buffoon.

While Clinton, Sanders and Trump are not presidential material, we were offered a real candidate with legitimate policy, a real plan and solutions.  Her name is Jill Stein and her plan is Alice_WalkerbookfansnetThe Green New Deal.

“During her interview… Dr. Stein quoted Alice Walker: ‘The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.’

A look at both recent history and current events demonstrates that people do have more power than they may generally believe. … people in the U.S. and around the world are recognizing their power, and using it to further the cause of human rights.”
