President Barack Obama visits San Francisco Wednesday, June 6 to fill his war chest.
Stand up to say NO! to his targeted killing program.

The U.S. government has adopted a policy of assassination to enforce global EMPIRE and crush the sovereignty of other countries. The Obama administration has assumed the power to order people killed -- in secret, with no due process, transparency or oversight of any kind -- what legal blogger Glenn Greenwald identifies as "literally the most radical power that a government and president can seize."

Obama: how many have you killed by DRONES today?

We have a prime opportunity to protest the Chief Assassin himself, when Obama makes another fundraising sweep of San Francisco at two events on Wednesday June 6:

LUNCHEON at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in the Merchants Exchange, 465 California Street

followed by what campaign officials have described as a

SMALL ROUNDTABLE at One Market Plaza (overlooking the former encampment of Occupy SF).

Last week The New York Times revealed that the president personally oversees a "secret kill list" containing the names and photos of individuals targeted for assassination in the U.S. drone war. Let's put our heads together to deliver a huge, visible message to Obama:

The World Can't Wait! Stop the U.S. government's war OF terror!

1) Vote for third party candidates in every race that you can, write them in if they are not on the ballot.

2) register third party if you have not already.

Scared a republican will get in?

-- Obama has killed more than 10x the people that Bush did with drones, and the D/R difference becomes a more and more bizarre stretch of the imagination every election.

Sure that voting would be illegal if it could change anything?

-- That's called Citizens United: when the corps and billionaires realized that Obama's army of Obots elected him in a landslide with $10 and $20 donations on the (albeit deluded) premise of hope, the Supremes had to take extreme action to level the playing field so that the masses cannot become powerful or imagine they can be.
-- That's direct evidence of how VOTING or even just REGISTERING to vote will terrify the powers that be into action that is so flagrant it exposes who and what they really are, which is a kings court, not a democracy.

No one can control your vote. Only you can. And no one can control -- yet -- who you can register for.

Not voting at all, at this point, will only concentrate the control in the hands of the Ds and Rs.
