The US economy is rigged to help the rich get richer while ordinary Americans get thrown under the bus. Real wages for workers have stagnated for decades as owners have pocketed practically all the profits from increased worker productivity.

We need to support worker ownership, profit-sharing, and cooperatives so the 1% aren't the only ones benefiting from economic growth. We have the economic capacity to guarantee a living wage job for everyone who needs work. We'd all benefit except the 1% who want scarcity.

On tonight’s Fireside Chat, join me along with Vets for Peace, US Labor Against the War and Code Pink in a webinar on the crisis in Korea and what we can do to stop it.

Hurricane Katrina was a 100 year storm. So was Sandy. Now Harvey - a 500 year storm. All in the last 12 years.

The climate crisis is here. We need a Green New Deal now.

Trump's "new" Afghanistan strategy is barely distinguishable from the 16 years he called a "total disaster” and “complete waste."

Afghanistan is already the longest US war in history, with over 100,000 people killed, including 2,386 US service members & thousands of innocent civilians.

The US has already spent over $1 trillion on the Afghanistan war. Experts estimate the true cost is at least twice that amount.

Despite the huge sacrifice of blood & treasure, the Afghanistan war has not only failed to eradicate terrorism; it has backfired profoundly.

The Taliban persists & even more extreme groups have used our long, violent occupation of Muslim countries to recruit many more fighters.

Republicans and Democrats alike have supported the Afghanistan war through the Bush and Obama administrations.

Greens have consistently opposed the Afghanistan war & other needless wars that are bankrupting our country both morally and financially.

Republicans & Democrats will not end this or other wars, because they depend on funding from war profiteers that sponsor their campaigns.

Greens will end wars, military interventions & bombing campaigns in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia & Yemen.

It’s time to end drone bombings and US military aid to Israel, Saudi Arabia, and other human rights abusers.

Instead of spending over 50% of our federal discretionary budget on the military, let's bring war dollars home & build better, more secure lives for all.

Regime change wars have only created failed states, mass refugee migrations & worse terrorist threats.

We must end the disastrous bipartisan war agenda, and begin a new foreign policy based on international law, human rights and diplomacy.

The age of empire is over. Peace will not come through economic and military domination but through a new era of justice.

The US must lead the way from the age of military domination to a new day of cooperation among the people of the world, by redirecting global resources from military destruction to climate survival, poverty eradication, racial justice & a sustainable, secure world. ✌🏻️
