Imagination is the Cure…

If we invest in alternative energy, we can establish colonies on the moon and explore the stars. We are a young civilization, we humans beings… and it is too early to write us off.

Fidel Castro: An International Hero

“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.”

Stein/Baraka Green New Deal for peace, people, planet and progress.~OO~

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire. Economists agree this military madness will bankrupt the country and destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030. We are teetering on the brink.

Peace and Progress or Unending Wars

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 must vote our values in November

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.

War and Peace

It is critical that we shut down avoidable 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.

“Some people are so afraid they cannot find the courage to debunk the junk and face facts. And increasing numbers don’t want to know truths too terrible to bear.”

Facts matter…

“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 25 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”

Clinton and Trump are pro-war and the last thing we need

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

The Rise and Fall of American Empire

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.

Bernie Sanders is just like Hillary & Obama on Wars of Choice

“Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton… have endorsed, encouraged, enabled and funded unnecessary wars and avoidable profiteering for the corporate elite. Eight more years of war is what they promise: dozens of unnecessary wars, thousands of avoidable drones and more troubling presidential assassinations which make murder without trial the new American rule without law. Trump agrees with wars for profit. But we have better choices! We can shine with Stein!”

Nothin’ but the Truth…

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.

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

“We have become the aggressor: exporting terror, munitions and wars in attacks on smaller and less powerful nations. “We spend trillions, killing millions, for the benefit of billionaires who pay no taxes, steal the taxes we pay and remain oblivious to concerns about our health, security and education.”

Bernie talks the Socialist talk, but…

“Despite his own claims, Sanders has not been an antiwar leader. Ever since he won election to the House, he has taken either equivocal positions on U.S. wars or outright supported them. ”

Bernie’s “dream” is a Nightmare

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.”
