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.

Implement the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights now!

We need to understand something very important:

The present Democratic Party, in spite of a very small handful of those elected among the new Blue Wave who the corporate media describes as “democratic socialist...

The Democratic Party, in fact, is currently lost way out in very conservative Ronald Reagan land.
Anyone who believes they will get anything of substance, including very minimal reforms which are much less than even the “baby steps” touted by the well-heeled upper-middle class muddle-headed crowd lacking any understanding of class, without a very sharp and militant struggle is living in the fairy-tale world of the make-believe.

These people would have us believe we should not consider the massive squandering on militarism and wars.

And these uncaring people completely ignore costly massive destruction that these dirty, never-ending imperialist wars cause... the massive destruction, not even considering the loss of life, amounts to even more than the insane costs of militarism and the wars.

Just think what we could be doing with this money involved in the cost of rebuilding in the aftermath of these wars!

These Reagan Republicans now in control of the Democratic Party will not tolerate even the slightest criticism of their dirty wars, the costs associated with whipping up a new nuclear arms race.

These newly elected “democratic socialists” learn quickly not to talk about militarism and wars depriving us of the basic necessities of life and the human rights we are entitled to per the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights the great real liberal Democrat, Eleanor Roosevelt was so instrumental in drafting which these Reagan Democrats and even the newly elected “social democrats” completely shun as if it was poison.

The entire world, except for us, will be focused on the seventieth anniversary of the Declaration on December 10th.

Every liberal, progressive, Socialist, Communist and Marxist should be demanding legislation intended to fully implement the intent of this Declaration.

I urge you to circulate and share this Declaration with the intent of building a massive movement for its full implementation.

Let’s not allow the Reagan Democrats to detract us from initiating struggles for a real living Minimum Wage, a living Social Security income, a National Public Health Care System, a National Public Child Care System and cancellation of all student debt...

When considering the cost of these universal social programs consider the costs involved in these Reagan Democrats carrying out their reactionary warmongering neoliberal Wall Street agenda...

We need new priorities that put people and our needs before wars and profits.
