We can shut down 31 wars and invest in peace, people and planet. Si se puede!
36 plus years of avoidable wars of aggression against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack was never a good idea. Legislators and presidents, in our name, have spent trillions killing millions for billionaires, munitions firms and war-profiteers.

We have expanded the American empire and Bernie intends for this expansion to continue.
But this nearly “imperial” expansion of empire contradicts Sanders’ most passionate populist rhetoric.
“Shut-up”, You don’t have the microphone!” is not a good enough response to questions about war, peace, life, death, murder, chaos, decline and surrender.”
“Just being slightly less worse than the worst possible scenario is not acceptable. We have to be willing to stand up and throw off those chains of powerlessness. In the words of Alice Walker, ‘the biggest way people give up power is by not knowing they have it.’

in the world we deserve, I would welcome Edward Snowden home a hero, and release Chelsea Manning, Jeffrey Sterling, Julian Assange and other courageous truth tellers with praise and reparations.
