Choose life, not death - Choose love, not hate.

Contrary to all the media hype and the left-wing progressive’s delusions there is little to celebrate if Biden wins the election.

Citing the analysis of William Hartung and Many Smithberger, the Milwaukee Independent described that: “As of 2019, the annual Pentagon base budget, plus war budget, plus nuclear weapons in the Department of Energy, plus military spending by the Department of Homeland Security, plus interest on deficit military spending, and other military spending totaled $1.25 trillion . . .”

This is untouchable money—not just to Trump but also to Biden.

 Three separate bills, introduced by progressive Democrats, to reduce military spending and/or undo the militarization of police departments have been defeated.
These included amendments in both the Senate and the House to the National Defense Authorization Act, diverting 10 percent of the Department of Defense budget to health care, education and jobs; as well as a Senate proposal to end the 1033 Program, which allows the Pentagon to transfer military gear to the police.

 The amendment’s defeat in the House was especially an outrage because the Democratic Party hold a majority in the House and could have passed it. Militarism, and the bloated defense budget are neve addressed with any serious political pragmatism by the Democratic Party.

Today is the day that we begin the process of rising above a primitive fear-based capitalist economic system that not only does not serve us, but is preventing us from investing in your well-being and the happy future of your children and grandchildren
