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"

We need to push Barack Obama aside to make way for a real peace candidate in 2012...

I think Reaganomics definitely pushed this country into darkness... however, it was the defeat of George McGovern that set this country on the steep slippery slope to perdition.

Liberals, progressives and the left should now begin looking for a real honest-to-goodness progressive like George McGovern to run in 2012... Obama is a loser and if he doesn't resign he should be either "primaried out" or face a real progressive running independent of the Democrats and Republicans; its time, long over-due, to finally set this country on a progressive course that will benefit, not only our own country, but the entire world.

It was the same warmongering Wall Street backed Democrats now backing Barack Obama who betrayed George McGovern and the peace majority of this country by with-holding their support from McGovern who now tell us we need to vote for them out of fear of the Republicans when it was these very sell-out Democrats who gave us Richard Nixon... and the rest is history.

Liberals, progressives and the left should drive Barack Obama from office the same way we drove Lyndon Johnson from office for expanding the war in Vietnam.

There is no way liberals, progressives and the left should tolerate being intimidated into voting for candidates who are for these dirty wars and who  keep supporting the Israeli killing machine.

I will be traveling across Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan discussing with working people seeking real change how we might come together and be a catalyst for a progressive agenda challenging Wall Street wars abroad and austerity at home... it's time to tighten the belt of people's unity around the coupon clippers making profits from poverty, racism and war. 

We need a real "party of no;" no to the military-financial-industrial complex.

On Election Day, November 2, 2010---

Liberals, progressives and the left need to take a stand:

No peace; no votes.

No jobs; no votes.

No real healthcare reform; no votes.

No childcare; no votes.

No enforcement of affirmative action; no votes.

Wall Street got what it wanted in return for its money...

We are entitled to peace and social & economic justice in return for our votes.

How is Obama's and the Democrats' war economy working for you?

Wars are killing our jobs just like they are killing people.

As I travel, I look forward to meeting with you and sharing your concerns and ideas around the kitchen table.

Yours in the struggle,
