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.

"Voting is easy and marginally useful, but it is a poor substitute for democracy, which requires direct action by concerned citizens"

I can't believe how these self-serving Democratic Party hacks don't think we had the right to see these e-mails detailing the dirty shenanigans of Hillary Clinton and her entourage of pious, hypocritical political hacks.

What difference does it make who exposed all of these dirty deeds just so it all got exposed?

Maybe the real consideration here should be how we dig ourselves out of this morass of scumbag politics we are mired in?

The issue isn't what the Russians may have done; the issue is about all these dirty, undemocratic, corrupt deeds that have undermined democracy so detested by the American people which enabled a sleaze-ball like Trump to worm his way into the highest office of the land and bring these morons into his cabinet backed by a bunch of neanderthals comprising the Republican majority in Congress with a bunch of Democrats so equally corrupted they fear standing up for what is right because they will be exposed so all they will do is acquiesce to this cabal of bigotry, racism, hate and war now about to be unleashed to attack the livelihoods and rights of workers, the working class and working class families.

What a dirty shame all these Democrats can focus on is taking revenge against the Russians instead of standing up for the rights and livelihoods of the very people they sought votes from under the guise of protecting us from this evil and vile Wall Street cabal led by Trump.

And now even Bernie Sanders, whose campaign suffered from these dirty deeds, joins with the Democrats in this bashing of the Russians instead of condemning the real culprits who perpetrated these dirty deeds who now stand exposed but seek to draw attention away from themselves by focusing on who exposed them... and, quite frankly, judging from the e-mails that were released, it is most likely some disgruntled Democrat, most likely a Bernie Sanders supporters fed this information to who ever finally released it.

The time to stop playing this dangerous game of looking for someone to blame should come to an end and the real struggles should be to force an end to these dirty wars before Trump can expand them and get us into more, end this insane nuclear arms race that Obama and the Democrats gave the Republicans the power to expand, fighting for real health care reform in the form of a National Public Health Care System based on the model of public education and defend public education from the attacks the Birchite Betsy DeVos is preparing to launch under her perverted sense of "education reform," and insist on the creation of a National Public Child Care System.

As working people we have many very serious and pressing problems neither the Republicans nor the Democrats are willing to address to our satisfaction.

Our fight is not with the Russians but with this corrupt group of Wall Street bribed politicians who thought it was so funny to play these dirty, stinking games behind our backs even as they sought our votes claiming they were concerned about us when these e-mails clearly show they were playing us for nothing but fools.

Apparently enough is never enough when it comes to political corruption and disdain for democracy in this country.

It is time to once and for all tell these worthless Dumb Donkeys to go to hell.

Enough of these dirty shenanigans...

Working people need our own political party... a new people's party that will stand up for peace, social and economic justice and against this racist hate now tearing this country apart.
