A New Racket

Smedley Darlington Butler was a United States Marine Corps major general; the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. Here is how he described war. I Have attached the audio of the entire speech he made about war. War Is A Racket WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

My Plan for America

I have attached the YouTube video of Bernie Sanders responding to Donald trumps speech. He sites several things President Trump did not mention. A) Presidents Trumps campaign promise not to cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. B) The widest gap of income wealth inequality. The widest gap since the 1920s C) The 5-4 Supreme Court vote in favor of the Citizens United Decision, allowing millionaires and billionaires to buy elections. D) Voter suppression. Republican governors, all over the country are working hard to make it more difficult for young people, low-income people, and senior citizens, people of color to vote. E) The environment and climate change. F) More people in jail than anywhere in the world. G) The simple fact that we need the best-educated work force in the world to compete in a highly competitive global economy. H) Creating tuition free community colleges, and addressing the student loan crisis. Here is a how I think we can begin to solve some of these enormous challenges. I call my plan EAP. (Education Action Plan). Education Action Plan is the foundation of my legislative agenda. It takes into consideration all of the challenges Bernie Sanders points out and the president ignores. Typically politicians are short on solutions, all to often there busy pointing out the serious low points of the other party candidate. All the while forgetting to offer what...
