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.

Benghazi, Benghazi... we will be hearing about Benghazi now until Election Day... what we won't hear about Benghazi is that the United States had no business going into Libya in the first place. "Regime change" and "humanitarian intervention" are all part of Wall Street's imperialist agenda being carried out faithfully by the Democrats and Republicans working together.

Had Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton not undertaken the overthrow of the Libyan government and planned the grotesque murder of Muammar Gaddafi no one would have been killed in the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.

But we will never hear this from the U.S. media or any Democrats or Republicans... certainly not Hillary Clinton... nor even from Bernie Sanders.

The Democrats will have no anti-imperialist resolution to debate at their National Convention thanks to Keith Ellison and Cornel West.

Are Puerto Ricans in for the Detroit treatment?

Puerto Ricans are having austerity measures shoved down their throats by Wall Street.

It is Wall Street's dictate and both the Democrats and Republicans carry out what Wall Street directs them to do. There is bi-partisan unity for Wall Street's domestic and foreign agenda. Isn't it time to stop making these excuses for Obama, Clinton an
d the rest of these Democrats as if they are not fully in league with Wall Street's imperialist agenda? It's Obama AND the Republicans.

What is being done to the the Puerto Rican people is to assure that the Wall Street employers continue to profit from the super-exploitation of cheap labor as the Wall Street bankers now profit from the misery created by forcing austerity measures down the throats of the Puerto Rican people who have been subjected to U.S. imperialist dictate, repression and oppression non-stop ever since the Spanish-American War.

One more reason we need a new progressive people's party that is both anti-monopoly and anti-imperialist with the moral and political courage to challenge Wall Street for both political and economic power with the intent of nationalizing the mines, mills, factories, banking and energy industries through public ownership. We need to move forward very boldly with a socialist agenda to counter Wall Street's imperialist agenda leading us to doom.

The problems require not baby steps and incremental reforms but that we unite in the kind of working class struggle that will enable us to take a huge leap forward.

The people of Puerto Rico will be rising up in anger against this new wave of imperialist aggression, oppression, repression and exploitation and it is our responsibility to support them in their struggle against our common Wall Street enemies.
