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.

Eliminate the national debt by nationalizing the banks.

So; the political discourse now centers on the national debt according to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

But, neither one talks about how the Wall Street bankers get rich off of our debt--- whether it is the debt from home loans, college tuition, to pay for roads and highways of the national debt accumulated for financing these dirty imperialist wars.

Our debt is Wall Street's profits.

There is only one way to eliminate this debt; any of this debt; all of this debt:

Nationalize the banks and seize their assets with these assets used to fund a national public banking system to finance human needs.

The Wall Street bankers are criminals even if they are too big to prosecute; but their assets are just the right size to seize to compensate us for all their dirty criminal deeds.

Don't fall into the trap of breaking up the banks when the solution is to nationalize them and bring them under public ownership.

We can see what happened when Ma Bell was broken up into bits and pieces--- workers were given the shaft and consumers are being ripped off while the same Wall Street crowd who still owns all the smaller entities laughs--- all the way to the bank.

Nationalization under public ownership is the solution to "too big to fail" for workers and consumers.

Forgo the prosecutions of the bankers for their criminal deeds; just reclaim the wealth that is rightly ours which these bankers have stolen from us with the connivance of the politicians..

What are we voting for?

So, stopping Trump is the only thing this election boils down to now? What's the choice? War or war?

Poverty or poverty? Lies or lies? Corruption or corruption? Wall Street's agenda or Wall Street's agenda?

I would like the opportunity to vote for a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity."

I would like to be able to cast my vote for beating swords into plowshares.

I would like to be able to vote for nationalizing the banks and creating a national public bank with outlets in every post office.

Militarism and wars from the Democrats and Republicans

The greatest stress is being placed on the economy by Wall Street's Military-Industrial Complex with is wasteful spending on militarism and wars.

It just so happens that this same Wall Street Military-Industrial Complex leaves behind the largest carbon footprint when it comes to global warming and climate change...

Maybe we should be talking about "killing two birds with one stone?"
