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.

Citizen diplomacy can stop war against North Korea.

The Trump Administration is trying to find every excuse possible to attack North Korea.


What I don't understand is why a large group of diverse American citizens don't go over to North Korea as a group to sit down and talk with Kim Jong-un and Pak Pong-ju to find out what exactly it is going to take to resolve things.


Citizen diplomacy is what we need now because we have, not only this moron Donald Trump and his goose-stepping Administration; but a bunch of worthless Democrats equally as warmongering working together to inflame bad relations between our two countries at a time when South Koreans and North Koreans are eager for the reunification of Korea as one socialist country. Neither South Koreans nor North Koreans want this Jeju Naval Base to go into operation with nuclear armed U.S. Naval ships always present always trying to inflame tensions.


It would seem to me we could put together a group of concerned citizens to go to North Korea to find a peaceful resolution to this problem.


I would be willing to go. Anyone else?


Maybe a group of labor activists, civil rights activists, peace activists, attorneys, clergy, etc.


President Bill Clinton undermined negotiations with North Korea after Jimmy Carter opened the way for dialog and peaceful diplomacy in 1994.


Now, why can't a group of concerned American citizens take up citizen-diplomacy where Jimmy  Carter left off.
