Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
Bernie, Donald, Hillary and Obama are great pretenders.
Much of Bernie Sanders’ economic populism is useful. He describes inequities and injustices and his frenetic diatribes provide a form of education (or entertainment) for some of the public. But his studious ignorance regarding war. peace and profiteering is dangerous. His primary function and sole purpose is to distract and confuse for the corporate bottom line.
“Sanders not only defends military contracts that benefit his constituents in Vermont, he also joined the 100 to 0 vote in the Senate to give unalloyed moral and political support to the state of Israel during its most recent bombing campaign against Gaza.”
The pretense that the American people must choose between an array of corporate candidates who endorse wars for profit is chilling. Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are all on the same page when it comes to extra-legal American and Israeli aggression. Each of these candidates accepts endless wars for profit as a legitimate economic base for America.
This idea is unsustainable and untenable.
Spending trillions, killing millions, and creating new enemies is making us less secure: U. S. schools are failing, physical infrastructure is falling apart, human services have declined and our civil rights have been compromised. We can no longer afford to surrender to fear and must somehow find the courage to resist.
“We have 36 years of evidence that unending war is not the answer. And either sitting on the couch and hoping for change or only focusing on local issues are not solutions. We must keep our eyes on the prize”
Bernie is the most blunt. He is ready and willing to talk about forcing the corporate elite to shoulder more of the fiscal burden of avoidable and unnecessary wars of choice, but he will not talk about the conflicts themselves.
His response, when his constituents raised this issue, was “Shut up, I have the mic.”
We do have other choices. Dr. Jill Stein understands the real issues. We must shut down our wars of aggression and invest those trillions in rebuilding the nation and changing course.
We can export knowledge, technology and peace instead of clinging to the export of terror, munitions and war. Instead of bowing to transnational munitions firms and contractors, we can secure the peace, heal the planet, and move forward.
Dr. Stein understands what is at stake and the doctor has a cure. Perhaps by 2020 we can educate the public. And we can begin replacing corporate cons with Greens as early as 2018. We can win by telling the truth. The voting public is sick of war, if we can only convince them to vote for their interests instead of their fears.
Our fate is in our hands.
Stein Calls for Transformational Solutions
to Address Climate Crisis and Wars of Choice…
Dr. Jill Stein is the right choice
“The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable.
It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good.…”
Think about it!
It is time to make a change. Avoidable and unnecessary wars must not continue.
