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.

Democracy at the crossroads

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) proves that in this election, democracy is at a crossroads.

Can democracy survive this kind of Presidential and government secrecy carried out in collusion with Wall Street behind the backs of the American people?

Can democracy even survive another four more years of an Obama Administration?

The struggle for working class issues like the relationship between war and peace and poverty and unemployment is a struggle to defend democracy from Obama and these parasitical Wall Street vultures/venture capitalists seeking his re-election.
