"To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.  
We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil." 
Senator John McCain, October 16, 2017.

URGENT Message to Congress: "Dump the Grifter!"

The current President is a threat to American democracy and to the existence of our planet and "tribes". He is a nuclear war primed to explode. Act now Congress or the "experiment" will be over. 
Don't be bullied by the grifter. Find courage or resign.

"Masters Of War" - JFK - Odetta - Dylan - Visualmyth

As an American citizen I totally reject the bombastic stupidity of the current President of the United States. He is as much a threat to humanity as all of the other idiots in leadership positions today. He is a fraud and a danger to the existence of this planet. Democracy in the USA is under threat from a mentally unstable autocratic oligarch. Nuclear war will ensure his power. If we as a nation let it happen.
"In a world of complex and continuing problems, in a world full of frustrations and irritations, America's leadership must be guided by the lights of learning and reason - or else those who confuse rhetoric with reality and the plausible with the possible will gain the popular ascendancy with their seemingly swift and simple solutions to every world problem." JFK. Remarks prepared for delivery at the Trade Mart in Dallas. Nov. 22, 1963.
"If our most highly qualified General Staff officers had been told to work out the most nonsensical high level organization for war which they could think of, they could not have produced anything more stupid than that which we have at present." Colonel Clause von Stauffenberg - 1944.
