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.

"Voting is easy and marginally useful, but it is a poor substitute for democracy, which requires direct action by concerned citizens"

Once again, Rocky Anderson, the former Mayor of Salt Lake City and the lackluster presidential candidate of the Justice Party who turned in a most embarassing vote total has turned to attacking me... and this is my response to him and members of the Justice Party.

My suggestion would be that we move on in organizing the Justice Party without Rocky Anderson since he and his arrogant multi-millionaire friend, Jonathan Ruga, along with a small group of right wing libertarians, have been the primary obstacles to moving forward in building the Justice Party as a viable progressive party.

We have seen how Rocky Anderson supported Bernie Sanders only to have Bernie Sanders come out and say he will be voting for Hillary Clinton who Rocky Anderson claims he could never support.

Rocky Anderson is responsible for sowing dissension in the Justice Party as a means to prevent it from moving forward.
We don't need Rocky Anderson, Jonathan Ruga or their small band of libertarians, some of whom have openly aligned themselves with KKK's David Duke and others with the Israeli Zionists perpetrating a campaign of genocide against the Palestinian people.

​Rocky Anderson has demonstrated a complete unwillingness to work in a way that fosters the kind of unity required to build a new progressive political party.

In fact, in the past, Rocky Anderson has arrogantly stated he expects the rest of us to do his "heavy lifting" as if the Justice Party centers around him and not the quest for peace, social and economic justice as was originally intended.

Instead of putting forward his reactionary anti-working class views in a forum for debate, which includes opposition to the government being responsible for attaining and maintaining full employment, he has put forward the view that full employment is a mere goal and objective of government rather than a responsibility of government while acting like a Democrat in trying to stifle dialog and discussion.

Making the president and Congress responsible for attaining and maintaining full employment with programs and projects financed by beating sword​s into plowshares has always been central to a progressive agenda.

Rocky Anderson, Jonathan Ruga and their little band of libertarians should be told to take a hike.

If Rocky Anderson is going to attack me for bringing forward for consideration in the Justice Party's Platform, full employment; who will his next target be?

I point out that I am a former member of the Justice Party's National Steering Committee
