It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

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.

Twitler Trump was selected; not elected.

When we look at the political developments taking place around the world in the G-7 (and in Russia) I think we have to conclude that Wall Street and its junior partners have decided that their requirements are such that only extremely right-wing and even fascist governments are required to head off the people taking political and economic power away from them.

There is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump, Twitler, was selected by Wall Street and not elected by the people.

These Wall Street overlords knew full well this would leave us in a quandary not knowing what to do to stop Twitler Trump.

And they are right.

The only thing people seem to be able to do is shake their heads and wring their hands wondering how we ever got stuck in such a mess.

These Wall Street merchants of death and destruction who aren't satisfied with their "normal profits" derived from the exploitation and rape of Mother Nature seek the fabulous super-profits derived from militarism and wars.

These Wall Street parasites fully understood people were reaching the point of being fully fed up considering the socialist alternative to their rotten capitalist system and they have made the decision to put Twitler in charge operating out of Mar-A-Lago instead of the White House... Hitler did the exact same thing operating out of the Berghof which was Adolf Hitler's home in the Obersalzberg of the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria, Germany.

We are now left with but two choices and we had better exercise both options:

1. Exert extreme pressure on the Democrats to resist the drive to war (and I wouldn't count on the Democrats stopping Trump).

2. Figure out how we are going to organize for socialist revolution.

Organizing to pressure the Democrats and their partners to throw their full resources into fighting Trump will prepare us for socialism by strengthening a mass movement to resist this sharp turn towards fascism we are now facing.

Our only other option is to sit wringing our hands wondering how we got into this mess... and anyone who has any understanding of history knows where this will leave us.

Trump is no fluke; he was selected by Wall Street to do their dirty work... he was not elected by the people.

An elected president would be conducting the business from the White House not his own personal resort--- Mar-A-Lago. Twitler Trump does this to show he is in power and he is going to do what he wants to do irrespective of anything Congress does or what the American people want.

We are in a very precarious and dangerous situation which will take a very powerful mass movement of the people to restore democracy... waiting for the next election is not an option because we can't even rely on the Democrats to prevent war/s.

We have never been is such a dangerous situation in this country... the last time humanity experienced anything like this was when Hitler, Mussolini, Franco and Tojo tried to dictate people had to live under their terms and we know the result of not stopping these fascist bastards in their tracks.

It is no coincidence that we see others like Twitler Trump coming to power in places like France--- Marine Le Pen is a fascist just like Twitler Trump. The big money people are pulling the strings... the time has come for working people to flex their muscles and say "No" to this drive towards fascism and World War III.

Let us face reality; we have been had: Twitler Trump was selected not elected.
