Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
I appreciate Bernie’s socialist stance, but Sanders condones Israeli and American aggression. Bernie Sanders, while expressing disapproval, has never-the-less voted to support most of Obama’s military excursions, where we misuse U. S. troops to attack smaller and less powerful nations so we can steal their resources and sell munitions. We have become the terror.
This American aggression, against nations who have not attacked us (even bombing seven in the last 8 years, killing innocents) is inexcusable. These corporate wars contradict who we are supposed to be. We could shut down 27 wars tomorrow, but Hillary, Trump, Ted and Bernie won’t budge.
Wars for profit is their game.
“…His foreign policy positions are to the right of many liberal Democrats. Sanders voted in favor of George W. Bush’s original Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution that gave the administration a green light to launch the war on Afghanistan. While he did vote against Bush’s invasion of Iraq, (after voting to make it possible) he repeatedly supported funding resolutions for both US occupations. And while critical of some aspects of Israeli policy, Sanders has a less than stellar record on Palestine, even going as far as defending Israel’s right to “self-defense” during its bloody assault on the Gaza Strip last summer.
Sanders’s backing of US imperialism compromises his support for workers rights. ”
We could elect a real leader. Jill Stein will shut down the wars and rebuild the nation. She is challenging the military industrial cons and has our back. She deserves our support. At some point everyday people need to either join the revolution or admit they are OK with war for profit. We can vote our values and put people over profit. And there are enough of us to win.
“Ultimately this is a political fight. It is critical that we stand up and stand together across issues, and across borders, to be a unified political force for people planet and peace over profit. The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good. The clock is ticking. It’s in our hands.”
~Dr. Jill Stein

Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
