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.

Minnesotans have an opportunity to start breaking free from the two-party trap; help Mike Cavlan get on the ballot.

Mike Cavlan needs our help to get on the ballot as a U.S. Senate candidate of the Open Progressive Party.

Mike needs our help circulating his petitions to get on the ballot.

I have petitions. If you would like to circulate a petition in your county give me a call: 218-386-2432. Leave a message if I am not home and I will get back to you.

Mike is running to represent the 99% of us people who are under attack from Wall Street which controls both the Republican and Democratic parties and most of their candidates including Amy "Republican Lite" Klobuchar.

Mike Cavlan is an ardent supporter of Rocky Anderson, the former Democrat who was the mayor of Salt Lake City, who told the Democratic Party to go to hell and helped get the new Justice Party off the ground.

By helping Mike Cavlan in asking our friends and neighbors to sign his petition to get on the ballot we are giving ourselves a voice in the electoral process for peace, social and economic justice, against racism and for full equality for all people, jobs and real health care reform.

Mike Cavlan has been one of the many participants in the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Check out some of the many videos on YouTube  with Mike Cavlan speaking and you will see that Mike Cavlan has the courage required to speak truth to power.

So; if you are for peace, social and economic justice assure we have a voice in the electoral process by helping make sure Mike Cavlan attains ballot status--- one more needed step as we challenge Wall Street for political and economic power.

The movement to free ourselves from the two-party trap begins with us--- with you and me. No one is going to do this for us; we need to do this ourselves.
