I’ve rarely had any enthusiasm for any candidate for federal political office, Democrat or Republican, because I know they have all be bought off by the power elite whose agenda is to dominate and exploit at any cost.
What I have been
passionate about is a movement to promote social justice, economic equity, personal
freedom, ecological restoration, community empowerment, peaceful relations with
all, and human unity.
Surprisingly, in the current Presidential campaign, a
candidate has emerged who seems to have the courage and ability to lead the
political arm of such a movement. This recent message from Tulsi Gabbard speaks for itself:
desperate coordinated campaign by the establishment elite and its backers in
the corporate media can only mean one thing: They’re afraid of us. Afraid of
the clear evidence that our movement is growing stronger every day, our message
getting louder and harder to ignore:
The New York Times, CNN, the DNC, Hillary Clinton, her proxies; They’ve
shown they’re afraid of our movement to dismantle the for-profit American war machine, to finally make Big
Pharma pay for its predatory policies, to decriminalize marijuana and reform
our broken criminal justice system, to make polluters pay for the devastation
they’ve caused to our planet, our air, our water.
afraid of a Party reform agenda that will root out the corruption and rot, and
re-establish the Democratic Party as the big tent party that looks out for the
little guys. The Party that is truly of, by and for the people.
you up for it?
Neither Tulsi nor anyone else can be our “savior.” It is
still up to “we the people” to save ourselves, but part of that involves
promoting a standard bearer who expresses our needs and desires and will work
to implement policies that promote the common good.
Donald Trump promised to do a lot for the people, but has
delivered very little. In fact, he has done much to damage us further. While he
has made some moves to shift US foreign policy away from endless regime-change
wars and covert interventions, his actions have been erratic and mutually-contradictory.
His tax policies have increased income and wealth disparities, his energy
policies have further damaged the environment and ecological balance, his
immigration policies have done nothing to address the root cause of the refugee
crisis, his trade policies, while seemingly well-intended, have damaged many
American businesses, especially the small and medium sized enterprises he
purports to champion.
We can do better. We need a leader who can unify the people in
common cause. I think Tulsi Gabbard is
