“Obama said his rule without law gave him the right to murder at will. Trump agrees. ”
“A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past,” Fidel once memorably said. Though the man has died, the ideas for which he struggled and to which he dedicated his life will undoubtedly live on, not just in Cuba but anywhere imperialism and the exploitation of the weak by the strong is a fact of life.”
We can’t continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire.

“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 31 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”
“At home, militarized police departments allow officers to kill unarmed citizens at will with zero accountability. And our leaders export aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”
American foreign policy under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, when considered by the non-partisan observer, has a sense of continuity – and escalating and expanding aggressiveness.

A coalition is building: 31 million Americans who want health care, 40 million Americans who want their student debt erased. 70 million students in secondary school and college who want the opportunity for free K-16 education. 5 million Americans who lost their homes to banks. 3 million Americans used and abused in corporate wars of choice. And 80% of Americans who are in debt and tired of seeing banks bailed out and Main Street sold out.
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I hear people screaming.

Since taking office Obama has bombed TEN Sovereign NATIONS, more than any of his predecessors since World War Two. These bombings violate International Treaties, U. S. Civil Law, The War Powers Act and Constitutional Mandates. We have deployed troops, attacked, bombed, or used illegal drones against these nations. We were not attacked.
“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.’
We have it.”

Their actions are essential for preserving our imperiled democracy in the face of secretive, unaccountable corporate government.
