It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

A program for real change...

What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

"Voting is easy and marginally useful, but it is a poor substitute for democracy, which requires direct action by concerned citizens"

Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day I think it is now very obvious that the Democrats are in full complicity with Bush and the Republicans in supporting this dirty war in Iraq for oil and regional domination.

The Democrats are only against Bush and want to have a Democratic President along with House and Senate majorities for the purpose of continuing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; and, maybe even get us into wars with Iran and North Korea.

Had Democrats really wanted this war to end it would have ended the first day that the United States Congress reconvened after the November Election.

Here in Minnesota the leadership of the Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party, along with the majority of DFL State Central Committee, and the majority of DFL elected officials support the war... they hide their support for the war by stating:

1. We can't end funding because we need to support the troops;

2. Calamity and chaos will result in Iraq if U.S. troops are withdrawn.

The leadership of the Minnesota DFL continues down the road of supporting imperialist aggression in keeping with the policies of Hubert Humphrey and Walter Mondale.

As a result, by next Memorial Day we will be seeing many more filled body bags and flag draped coffins.

We had better decide that we will look for a real political alternative if we are serious about peace.

To continue to vote for Democrats and Republicans is like a dog chasing its tail... more bloodshed, carnage, mayhem, and chaos is the result of continuing to participate in the present political process rigged against the people and for more war.
