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.

Banned from "The People's Summit:" any talk about building a new progressive people's party.

We are still hearing a great deal about "The People's Summit."


What I do not understand is how an event can be billed as "The People's Summit" but any talk about organizing a new "people's party" is banned as a topic of discussion even though it is very clear the majority of the people in this country have no use for the Democrats or Republicans because there is an understanding that neither party will address the concerns and problems of the people in a way leading to solutions.


We need to organize a real people's summit that will lead to the creation of a new political party in this country.


Therefore, I have commented on all the YouTube videos promoting this "People's Summit" with this comment:


Check this out. It was written by Minnesota's second socialist Governor, Elmer Benson, who had been elected on the Minnesota Farmer-Labor ticket. Benson also Chaired the Progressive Party which ran Henry Wallace for president. We have to break free from this two-party trap.
