The U.S. is the largest terrorist organization on the planet, and it needs to stop. We must wake up to the violence being committed everyday around the globe, as the American people stand idly by, while millions are murdered in our name. We must stand up en masse and demand a better way. Demand our illegal wars of aggression, claiming to be about democracy and freedom, cease.  We're like the Germans in WWII who turned a blind eye when Hitler was doing his dirty work until it was too late.

And our corporate media is nothing but lies and propaganda used to brainwash the masses. The information is out there--hiding in plain sight, but most don't want to look. It seems we prefer to live in denial watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians or playing Angry Birds. Like any co-dependent relationship, we are the enablers to this criminal enterprise hell bent on global empire, and destroying anything that gets in the way of world domination.

The fear, lies and propaganda our leaders use to sell these bogus wars are shameful. Why does anyone still believe anything they say? Terrorism is not the problem. Muslims are not the problem. The problem is the U.S. invades sovereign countries to steal their oil and other natural resources.

I'm furious over what is going on in this country. We have turned into a massive surveillance state embroiled in over 100 military actions around the globe. Billions are spent on these wars, as food stamps and unemployment benefits are cut, education homogenized, tax cuts for the rich renewed, corporate welfare abounds, and our infrastructure crumbles.  There are no jobs and no jobs bill. Our callous politicians turn a blind eye to the suffering of the American people and merely serve their corporate puppet masters.

We pretend to be a nation of laws, however, not one banker has been prosecuted or even questioned about their role in the economic global collapse, and not one politician has been held accountable for taking us into Iraq based on deceit and lies.  And we continue exporting war, death and destruction under the guise of democracy and freedom. Our civil liberties have been stripped from us to "keep us safe."  This is just another ruse endlessly touted by the corporate media whores and our bought and paid for politicians.

Our current system is broken. It no longer serves the planet or us, and it's not sustainable. It's built on debt, poverty, lies, slavery, world domination, patriarchy and war.   It's time for a new paradigm. A just and decent world is possible. We can live in a world in which there is no hunger or poverty.  We can live in harmony, dignity and prosperity.   It's time to take responsibility and stand up to the heartless thugs in the White House and Congress. We need to tell them we're not buying their bullshit lies any more or their fear tactics, and while we're at it we want our civil liberties back.

"A wave of action is coming on April 4th, the date they killed MLK, the date Cindy Sheehan lost her son, the date cherry blossoms and resisters to fascism begin to show after an endless winter of many, many years. Take a look at https://waveofaction.org"

Like Gandhi said, it's time to channel our anger, turn on the light and move into action. Together we can build a peaceful world.  The decision is ours.

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars"Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.
