What’s wrong with this picture?

Want to make America safe? Want to make America loved and respected throughout the world? Halt the famine that is now developing in Africa and put a permanent end to world hunger. Our nation will no longer be looked at as the propagators of death and destruction but be heralded as saviors and saints. Continue reading

Asymmetry

Congress can impeach a president but a president can’t impeach Congress. Thus the real locus of government power resides in the Senate and the House of Representatives. Impeaching Trump will not eliminate what Trump represents. But replacing 450 corrupt pay-for-play congressman will and is how we truly make a difference that makes a difference. Continue reading

Line of Succession: Just when you thought it was safe to . . .

Trump is an easy target. But impeaching him accomplishes nothing. It merely sets up month-after-month, year-after-year of more impeachment hearings. What Trump represents will not go away just because he does. Regime change in Congress is the only option and the only viable place to focus our time, energy and creativity. There are 33 Senate seats and 435 House seats up for grabs in the 2018 election. That’s where our power resides. That’s how we mount a real revolution and turn back the tide of corporate totalitarianism. Continue reading

Why Donald Trump is not as horrible as Hillary Clinton … and why you should vote for Jill Stein.

Vote for Jill Stein! If that ends up electing Donald Trump, so be it. He’s a buffoon and will accomplish nothing. He doesn’t know his way around Washington DC and will be totally isolated. If Hillary gets elected, we will end up in a major war. She knows her way around the nation’s capital and is supported by Wall Street, the big banks, the multinational corporations, the MIC, and worst of all, the neocon-infested government and media organizations. These folks know only four things: War, profit, more war, more profit. Yes, Hillary may end up being the nation’s first female president. But she’ll also end up being the nation’s last president. Continue reading

Dealing With A Shark Attack

How do you deal with a shark attack in a swimming pool? You drain the water and watch the shark suffocate.

The Peace Dividend strategy is exactly that. Drain the pool of funds which our insane neocon-infested military establishment — which includes the DOD, NSA, CIA, DHS, Congress, and the White House — abuses with its never-ending wars and delusional pursuit of world empire. No money. No more unnecessary wars. Continue reading

Is this really happening?

Anyone out there who is running for the Senate or the House, anyone out there who knows someone who is running for the Senate or the House, or anyone out there who knows what the Senate and the House of Representatives do . . . please look at my new activist website: http://no-contract-no-vote.us Continue reading

Candidate Contracts: Replacing Bad Brains With Good Brains

The brains of our elected officials, the monsters who roam the two legislative bodies of our government, the Senate and the House of Representatives, have been corrupted by money, effectively destroyed, are now lacking the capacity to fulfill their constitutional mandate. They no longer are controlled by the citizens who elected them to office. These bad brains now are exclusively the lapdogs of the rich and powerful. We must replace the bad brains. Continue reading

Putting Boots (Birkenstocks) on the Ground: Part VII

Getting the truth out to the voting public on exactly where the candidates stand requires audacity, creativity, courage, some outside-the-box thinking. But it can be done. It should be done. It must be done! Voters don’t need to see protest signs. They need to see honest and clear choices at the polls. Candidate contracts leave no room for error or misinterpretation. They preclude elected representatives from going back on their commitments to their constituents when they enter the money chamber of the Washington DC bubble. Continue reading

Putting Boots (Birkenstocks) on the Ground: Part VI

When we identify candidates who are on our side — the ones who willingly sign contracts for those specific things the vast majority of us want done — we unite behind them, a huge voting bloc of citizens who are serious about having true representative government — real democracy — in America. Candidate contracts are the surefire way of determining what candidates are on our side. Continue reading
