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.

Impeach Trump; stop bullying and badgering North Korea

Instead of seeking a peaceful solution through diplomacy and normalizing relations with North Korea, Trump has chosen to instigate war.

Obviously Russia and China can not be expected to promote a peaceful resolution to this conflict, either as both voted for sanctions against North Korea.

Shameful, too, is the position taken by Evo Morales and the Bolivian government in support of sanctions against North Korea at a time when North Korea requires access to all markets in the world in order to strengthen its economy and provide an improved standard of living for its people.

These sanctions against North Korea which has harmed no one are intended to bring down the socialist government of North Korea.

North Korea has a population just under that of the state of Texas; it is a small country whose government and people have never hurt or harmed anyone.

The United States is building a modern naval port in South Korea to host nuclear armed warships with their nuclear arsenal targeted on North Korea, China and Russia.

The time is long overdue for the United States to normalize relations with North Korea and allow the North Koreans to build socialism in peace.

Trump is a demonic barbaric imperialist monster; it is Trump who must be removed from office through impeachment in order for there to be peace.

Trump spreads the most vile forms of racist hate in our own country and now spews racist anti-Communist hate towards North Korea which is pushing us towards war when we should be working for peace.

The United States has no business maintaining military bases in Guam, Japan or South Korea.

The United States has over 800 foreign military bases dotting the globe according to the U.S. Department of Defense. This is total and complete insanity. Close down these outposts for Wall Street's imperialist policies and put health care centers in every neighborhood and community in our own country instead providing the American people with free health care and millions of jobs a National Public Health Care System would create.
