Funny Business…

The United States Government has been run like a branch of organized crime: a special sort of American business… Funny business that ain’t so funny.

For more than than 36 long years, corporate and military elites have run the show: spending trillions killing millions for billionaires, while withholding health care from the American people…
and bankrupting the nation.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.”

Trump or Clinton will sink all ships

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire. Global economists agree this has already bankrupted the country and will destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030. We are teetering on the brink.

queen hillarykingtrump
Donnie and Hillary both had royal ambitions, but neither one of them is presidential material.  And we do not need a king or queen.

Obama declared that he, as the American president, had the “right of kings” to murder at will without due process of law. According to this theory, a president can murder anyone, anywhere, anytime, for any reason… or without providing any reason at all. Congress did not challenge this rank treason because they are mostly cowards, thieves and profiteers.  Our new King Trump and would be Queen Hillary agree with this insanity and do not belong anywhere near the White House.  Voting for either of these clowns makes no sense

https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/2016/07/20/neither-hillary-nor-trump-will-do/

 

no1

27 simultaneous, expanding wars of unprovoked aggression is a bad platform. Launching thousands of drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike and bombing smaller and less powerful nations will only continue to create more enemies and make us even less secure.

Our future is in our hands. If we had voted for Dr. Jill Stein and the Green New Deal (voting values instead of fears)  we could have taken back the nation, secured the peace, established justice and guaranteed freedom.

But that time has passed and we are in serious trouble.

War and Peace

We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war.

jsmill“A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for the injury.”
― John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
 

Systems and isms do not attack anyone or start any wars. Hitler was a madman and needed to be stopped.  But in waging war against the Nazis, Americans became like their enemies.  We brutalized and murdered prisoners and then dropped two bombs which could have been avoided.

abombDropping the first atomic bomb was sick, the Japanese were ready to surrender. And dropping a second bomb was perverse.  But that these American atrocities took place, does not imply it would have been OK to allow Hitler’s genocide and murders to continue.

And recently, when Obama spent 1.5 trillion building more nuclear weapons while engaged in unprovoked attacks across the globe…. we have become the ones who need to be stopped.  Unfortunately Trump is on board with dozens of wars.

The solution is not a surrender to war, but to stand up and secure the peace.
But political “reality” intervenes.

Reality is not all it’s cracked up to be. Some say life is merely an illusion. But over time we find small truths, big lies, radical science and brilliant ideas.
 dove
Unfortunately, most of the time war trumps peace, aggression spreads and myths abound.  Too many live in personal fictions and find facts too great a burden to bear.
“Reality denied comes back to haunt.”

“At home, militarized police departments allow officers to kill unarmed citizens at will with zero accountability, two weeks paid vacations and get out of jail free cards. And our leaders export this aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”

war
It is critical that we shut down corporate wars and reinvest in jobs with justice. We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war. These are the tasks at hand.
The pirates in charge of ongoing U. S. wars of choice are profiteers, pure and simple. Their military arrogance and disdain for the public and the law is astounding. But there are more of us, by a long shot… than there are of them.  This is our time.
 
“Pessimism becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy; it reproduces itself by crippling our unionswillingness to act.”
― Howard Zinn, You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train:
A Personal History of Our Times
“Peace is the only battle worth waging.”
― Albert Camus
 
“The greatest purveyor of violence in the world : My own Government, I cannot be Silent.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

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

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
