Imagination is the Cure…

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.

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.

Hillary’s crimes cannot be erased…

“In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.”

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

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.”

Empire, deconstruction and revolution

“…we are now fighting 27 simultaneous wars… and have been building an empire based on more than 800 offensive military outposts. We sell arms to both sides of artificial conflicts sponsored by the CIA and/or the Pentagon. This increasing and expanding empire, selling unending wars for profit, can only bankrupt the nation.”

We have choices to make…

“Americans are sick of war. Dr. Stein will be on 85-100% of the ballots. If we, the people Dr. Stein represents, vote for our own best interests… Stein may win in a landslide. 75% of the voting public are thinking third party, With offerings like Trump and Clinton, this is our time for The Green New Deal. ”
