“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”
Genocide is as old as history. It has been a part of the human condition from the very beginning.
We do not know the exact number of people killed in the Americas. There was no one back in the time of Columbus compiling a census or doing a mass survey. However, we conclude that a figure of 50 to 75 million is reasonable.
When pro-war candidates like Trump or Clinton win… we end up spending trillions killing millions for the people who benefit: the richest 5% in the nation, bankers, insurance cartels, munitions firms, war-profiteers and the corporate elite.
No sane person can call this surrender to unprovoked, unnecessary and expanding wars… “good leadership.”
“Clinton, Obama and Trump share remarkably similar military ambitions. Their platforms include ongoing wars, profiteering, invasions and unnecessary wars of aggression against increasing numbers of smaller and less powerful nations.”
“Available economic, educational, and military data indicate that, when it comes to U.S. global power, negative trends will aggregate rapidly by 2020 and are likely to reach a critical mass no later than 2030. The American Century, proclaimed so triumphantly at the start of World War II, will be tattered and fading by 2025, its eighth decade, and could be history by 2030.”
CIA and military resources are used to destabilize, invade, attack and terrorize smaller and poorer nations, selling arms to both sides of needless conflicts and avoidable wars.
“Do not surrender to eight more years of war with a Republican or a Democrat.
We cannot afford to make this wrong choice.
There are more of us than there are of them.”
…in 2016, … Stein is not the only one to argue that, while the Republicans have gone off the rails, the Democrats have perceptibly shifted to the right.
