Pro-peace, anti-Clinton

I was outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia carrying a sign that read, “Clinton is a war criminal.”

The main chant of thousands of democracy-loving Americans was, “Hell no, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary.”

Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama became aggressors in 2011 when they destroyed Libya, turned it into a failed state and created thousands of jihadist terrorists for no sane reason.

Now that Bernie Sanders has endorsed Clinton, Jill Stein of the Green Party is by far the best candidate.

Since 1968, my party has been split over the issue of war. Powerful, corrupt Democrats have merely papered over the split by refusing ever to talk about Washington’s worldwide military empire.

Donald Trump said, “Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually got along with Russia and China, and all these countries?” That’s wiser and more statesmanlike than anything I’ve ever heard Clinton say.

Clinton is violent and reckless and could unintentionally start a nuclear war with Russia, which could wipe out the United States forever. Helping Stein or Trump beat Clinton this fall should be the peace movement’s most urgent priority.
