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.

Economic Populism without real solutions to our problems is meaningless... will we be sucked in again by these Democrats?

Will this national conference continue to be dominated by the over-paid muddle-headed upper-middle class intellectuals and Democratic Party hacks working for the foundation-funded outfits fronting for the Democratic Party who refuse to bring forward in a timely manner the impact on the economy of financing this insane militarism and these dirty imperialist Wall Street wars while pushing an agenda for reforms which doesn't take into consideration the urgency of solving the problems of working people from the cost-of-living crisis to the need to immediately create millions of new jobs through universal social programs like a National Public Health Care System and a National Public Child Care System?
We need an economic populism which attacks Wall Street's agenda that helps us build an anti-monopoly coalition capable of challenging Wall Street for political and economic power not just "regulating" Wall Street.


Check it out but don't get sucked in to a false economic populism intended to hoodwink people into voting for Democrats like Hillary Clinton at the expense of our problems going unresolved:

Will your voice for peace, jobs and a Basic Income Guarantee be included?


Will we be lectured about how we must be "patient with the pace of reforms" by accepting "incremental baby steps" as Democrats "inch" us on the way to the good society?


Should a call for a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" be brought before this conference?


If so, how?
