Our solution to the problem simply perpetuates the problem further requiring more of the solution.

Collateral Damage. We don't like to talk about it but it is what creates more terrorists. We kill people's parents, brothers, sisters and grandparents. They get mad at the US and become terrorist to fight the terrorists (USA).

It works as planned creating more war and more profit from war.

Take the profit out of war and it will end today.


War profiteering used to be considered immoral yet today it is who we have become.

"...U.S. foreign arms sales, which surged 36 percent to $46.6 billion in fiscal 2015 and look set to remain strong in coming years, a top Pentagon official said."

They'll remain strong since we are creating terrorists at a record rate. Collateral Damage is the key to success. Just keep killing children and families and we can ensure more profits for years to come.

Where have our morals gone?

Everything Bernie Sanders says comes down to one thing...


It's in your own self interest.

If America has a record turnout, Bernie will win by a landslide despite rigged counts, corruption and media bias.

Bernie is the people's candidate. If our Democracy is a Democracy, Bernie will win.

Neocon 101

Professor: What did we learn from Vietnam?

Student A: The draft brings it too close to home. It creates intense rebellion.

Professor: How did we overcome this?

Student A: We cut back on entitlements and increased college tuition. We made it nearly impossible for many young people to survive, let alone get ahead.

We made military service one of the only ways to get an education without incurring significant debt. Proudly, we built an all volunteer army.

Professor: And how do we sustain this?

Student A: Continual warfare. Collateral Damage on a grand scale insures more terrorists promoting our continual wars.

Professor: Right.

Student B: The goal is to rid the world of terrorists, one at a time.

Professor: Wrong. The goal is to maintain the level of MIC business. To sustain our military commerce at current levels or better.

Student B: Military commerce? What does commerce have to do with the military?

Professor:[/b ] Everything.


It's time for our country to change direction. We need to protest like this is the Vietnam War.

Our nation and our allies are about to start WWIII.

For the sake of our kids, Revolt!

Elizabeth, Bernie then Martin.

These are the three people I would vote for and feel like I was placing an historic vote.

It's been many years since I have seen such true Democrats. If we don't take this opportunity, we may not see this opportunity again. It may be too late.

I'll vote for Hillary if she wins the primary. However, it's a vote for a 3rd way Democrat.

Elizabeth is not running but for me, she was the first to spark the populist opportunity to turn America around. I love Elizabeth and her fire.

Bernie has my vote. This man built his campaign from grassroots donations. He is his own person. He speaks for the people that paid him (so does Hillary and every other politician but "people" is loosely defined).

Martin is very intriguing and I think he has points over each of the other two. I'm less familiar but still educating myself. Who knows, he might win me over.

We have two great Democrats that encompass the best of Democratic values.

I know this will not be a popular statement but, please don't vote for Hillary in the primary. Take the opportunity to bring real change to America. Vote for Bernie or Martin because we need to change before global warming forces change. We need to change before WWIII. We need change before corporations leave us all in the dust.

This is an unprecedented opportunity. Vote in your, and your children's, best interest.

An America of the people, by the people, for the people.

Guess Who Wins the Presidency According to School With 100% Prediction History

Western Illinois University, home of the Fighting Leathernecks, has been engaging with political prediction polls for decades. And since 1975, the school has managed to accurately predict the winner of every single Presidential election in a statistic that is likely to make even Nate Silver jealous.

So with the newest installment tallied and in the books, who does Western Illinois University believe will be taking the stage to declare victory the night of November 8th, 2016?

None other than President-Elect Bernie Sanders, with Vice Presidential candidate Martin O’Malley right by his side.

The students at the school have predicted that Sanders would defeat Hillary Clinton in 22 out of a possible 26 primary states.
