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.

Tell Rick Nolan and the Democrats to go to hell when they come begging for campaign contributions.

These Democrats constantly begging for money make me sick.

A lot of people want to know where Minnesota's newly elected 8th Congressional District Congressman Rick Nolan is going to come in on the issues of sulfide mining in northern Minnesota--- the Arrowhead Region, and peat mining in the Big Bog; mining versus wild rice which is a way to track the health of our ecosystems and the health of our democracy when it comes to respecting the rights of Native American peoples.

Mining has been very profitable to the corporations here in Minnesota leaving the rest of us with nothing but huge pits, pollution and poverty no different from Appalachia.

Pits filled with pollution.

People mired in poverty.

All the while the absentee mine owners and Wall Street investors abscond with the profits.

We get poverty, pits and pollution--- they get the profits.

Rick Nolan should go to the mining companies to get his campaign expenses covered since it is the interests of these mining companies he is going to Washington to serve.

I wouldn't contribute one single penny to this extremely wealthy businessman's campaign coffers.

Rick Nolan went right along with Mark Dayton's raising the limits enabling more mining contaminants and pollutants to enter the air we have to breathe and the water we need to drink--- that the wild rice is at risk as a result of the present mining operations should tell us all we need to know about allowing the peat mining and sulfide mining operations to proceed.

The Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party is controlled and manipulated by corporate interests... let the wealthy who profit from their greedy exploitation of labor being used to rape Mother Nature fund their own campaigns.

Tell Rick Nolan and the Democratic Party to go to hell... boycott all Minnesota DFL fundraising events.
