Emma Goldman--If voting changed anything

Special thanks to Lee Burkett for permitting me to publish this original piece.

December 18, 2015

Here’s the thing: I am opposed to voting. I make that quite clear, as I also make quite clear my reasons for doing so; that today the vote has no meaning, no power to bring about meaningful change.

On an almost daily basis, as the election circus cranks up, I am confronted by very angry people who demand to know how I can give up this most American, this most democratic right that previous generations fought for, sacrificed for and died for. In my minds eye I imagine them draped in Old Glory while the rockets red glare gives proof through the night that the flag is still there. They say I’m giving up. They say I’m giving in. They say if I don’t vote then I can’t complain.

Well … I support the…

Bernie Sanders is old and wrong

Thanks for a truthful article for once!

The Peace Resource

Bernie Sanders supporters should really take the time to examine his foreign policy record before making assumptions about it.

No, he’s not antiwar.

No, he’s not a noninterventionist.

No, he didn’t only vote to “support the troops” stationed overseas.

mynzahosiris.wordpress.comBernie – like Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Rubio, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and every other Republican and Democrat running for office – is an imperialist, and his long political history clearly reflects this..

Bernie voted in favor of HR 3107 – Iran and Libya Sanctions Act of 1996, which “imposes sanctions on persons exporting certain goods or technology that would enhance Iran’s ability to explore for, extract, refine, or transport by pipeline petroleum resources, and for other purposes.”

quote-if-we-don-t-end-war-war-will-end-us-h-g-wells-195757In 1997, Bernie voted for HR 2159 – Foreign Operations FY98 Appropriations bill, which included: $3 billion for Israel, including $1.8 billion…

obamaObama has not really done “better” at home or abroad.
 
In military affairs, he has spent trillions of dollars, killing millions and created a military boondoggle which will take half a century to repair. And while our infrastructure declines at home, he has created an additional 150 combat ready bases worldwide to enforce his tyranny.
 
Obama has governed like a right winger at home and abroad. And we are paying the price.
 

Health care reform

Not yet

1. On Healthcare, we are now forced to pay ever-increasing amounts to insurance cartels who leave 31 million Americans without health care. He has been more willing to compromise than make rules.

 
2. On Immigration, he has deported more than two million people, more than any president in history. He has been breaking up families for no apparent reason. “Deportations have become…

Stephen Lendman--flashpoint_in_ukraine_corrected-291x443

Monday, May 25, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

America’s imperial agenda needs war, violence, turmoil and chaos. Peace and stability defeat it.
Judicial Watch obtained a declassified 2012Pentagon intelligence report anticipating ISIS (the Islamic State – IS) emerging from US support for Al Qaeda and other takfiri terrorists.
It predicted what happened, saying “(i)f the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria…and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”
It anticipated “dire consequences” for Iraq – including the fall of Mosul and Ramadi, saying:
An “ideal atmosphere” was created “for AQI (Al Qaeda in Iraq) to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi.”
“ISI (Islamic State of Iraq) could also declare an Islamic state…

Is Bernie Sanders Making A “Political Revolution”? by Todd Chretien

PROGRESSIVE ACTIVISTS VOICE

BERNIE SANDERS’ bid to unseat Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party’s heir apparent to the White House has shaken up election season and given a voice to millions of people who have had it with a political system wholly owned by the 1 Percent.It is very important for the left that Sanders has injected the question of socialism into the mainstream political discussion. His run also raises questions that the left needs to discuss and confront, including the main contradiction of his campaign: The independent senator from Vermont is running for the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party, which is also owned by the 1 Percent–and he has repeatedly promised to support whoever the party’s nominee is, even Clinton, rather than an independent left-wing campaign for president.Sanders’ popularity has been one of the main political stories of the summer. More than 100,000 people have crammed into rallies from Portland, Maine…
