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.

No moral or political courage among the Democrats

As far as I can tell, not one single Democrat in Congress has had the moral or political courage to stand up against this anti-Russian hysteria the Clinton crowd is trying to whip up.


At least there were a couple Democrats who had the moral and political courage to stand up against the lying provocations that took us into the war in Vietnam and the war in Iraq.


If you can't rely on a politician to stand up for peace there is nothing you can rely on them for... nothing, absolutely nothing.


As we can learn from history, these politicians who lack the moral and political courage to stand up for peace, are very weak, at best, when it comes to issues of social and economic justice.
