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"

Trump's threats directed towards North Korea are total insanity.

What is this display of Wall Street's U.S. imperialist might trying to bully and badger North Korea costing us?

Two aircraft carriers accompanied by a massive strike group armed with nuclear weapons; what Trump refers to as "armadas."

All of this is costing us billions of dollars; and for what? To prove we are the world's biggest bully?

This at a time when the new liberal South Korean government is saying they don't want any of this; that they seek peaceful resolution of problems between them and North Korea.

And the price we pay for all this militarism and threatening of war is not having decent health care, education, housing and jobs right here at home.

Total insanity.

It isn't just Trump who is crazy. The whole bunch of these politicians in Washington are off their rocker... there isn't a sane person sitting in the United States Congress. Not one single one of these Wall Street bribed politicians is going to stand up and raise their voice in opposition to this imperialist aggression directed towards North Korea.

Every single member of Congress needs to have their head examined.

What we need is some kind of "New Broom Electoral Coalition" backed by a massive people's front for peace, social and economic justice mobilizing people in the streets--- a good stiff "new broom" to sweep the entire Congress clean.

People's power must replace Wall Street dictate maintained through bribery and corruption.

While Trump targets North Korea he wines and dines with a bunch of Saudi sheiks robbing us at the gas pump... go figure.
