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.

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. ✌🏻️

Corporate Media’s Attack on Jill Stein Begins


Jill Stein is now officially a threat to the political establishment, as corporate media is beginning to attack her campaign. Though she's
polling at less than 5% in most polls, this is high enough to siphon off votes from the Democratic party, and they refuse to let this happen, so the attacks dogs have been released.

Green Party Candidate Jill Stein on Bernie, Hillary & a “Green New Deal” (Interview w/ Cenk Uygur)


Published on Dec 21, 2015

The Green Party’s Dr. Jill Stein is serious about running for president, and taking on the system that drives up student loan debt and healthcare costs, cuts taxes for the rich, promotes endless war while flooding weapons across the Middle East, and bails out the criminals on Wall Street while channeling young African-American males into the school-to-prison pipeline.

In this wide-ranging interview with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, Stein also shares:

– Her plan to drive young people to the polls by promising to eliminate student debt
– Why, as much as she admires Bernie Sanders, the Democratic machine will never let him win
– Her strategy for dealing with ISIS
– The lessons of the Obama presidency
– Her position on Black Lives Matter
– Why no one else will deal with the urgency of the climate crisis
– How her plan for a Green New Deal can turn back the tide against climate
change while providing jobs and promoting a thriving economy
