It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

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.

The question we need to keep asking...

As liberal, progressive and left working class activists we should strive to make sure the entire politics of this country begins to revolve around how the American people answer this one basic and fundamental question:

How is Barack Obama's Wall Street war economy working for you?

- Ask this question in letters to the editor.

- Post it on your refrigerator, on bulletin boards at work, in churches and community centers.

- Use it on protest signs at vigils and demonstrations.

Most people will tell you that this economy is not working very well for them. After finding out why it isn't working very well for them we can begin to put together a program to turn this country around in creating the kind of country we really want.

This is such a basic and fundamental question as we approach the 2012 Elections that it is dishonest to be engaged in politics not asking this question of the American people.
