Dr. Jill Stein’s prognosis: End Militarized Police and Corporate War
Our hope for revolutionary change
must be based on sustainable
investments in peace, justice
and taking care of the most
vulnerable among us.
We must not accept
domination and intimidation
by the so-called “military-industrial complex.”
I guess the people who have died and continue to die because of the militarization of U. S. police (former peacekeepers) during the past seven years will be written off as “collateral damage.” Opinions vary.
But Dr. Jill Stein has some ideas…
She will shut down corporate wars of choice, bring the troops home and rebuild a nation whose economic base is knowledge and peace instead of munitions and war.
She will localize international banking cartels, implement universal non-profit health care, and create a sustainable environment by 2030 or sooner by putting everyday people back in charge.
What if we could prosecute the idiots who began giving police departments inappropriate offensive military equipment in the first place? These congress members, courts officials, grand juries and other legislative and enforcement department personnel must step up to the plate. They broke the laws, did the crimes and should be expected to pay for the damages people have suffered and set things right. We can hold them accountable.
We need peace with honor. Shut down the corporate wars and reinvest in peace and productivity instead of bombs. The bottom line is peace or war. The only potential president with an offer on the table which begins with peace is Doctor Jill Stein. She can lead this nation to healing, recovery and reconstruction.
We can export agriculture, scientific solutions to environmental challenges, medical technology and the arts and practical skills we continue to develop and refine while we repair, replace, expand and augment existing U. S. infrastructure.
