The twin capitalist parties of war and fascism, the Democrat-Republicans, admitted in the last election that they have NO difference on foreign policy, so there is NO difference between them as we cannot have guns and butter. All we get from both fascist parties is war and fascism, because that is how profits are maximized, the greatest profits being in munitions and oil. We are now witnessing the promotion of drone killings at home and abroad, with a Democratic president drawing up weekly kill lists every Tuesday. He promotes warrantless wiretapping and secret, indefinite detention, the frame-up of Bradley Manning and refuses to close Guantanamo. Hitler would be proud of this president. He has always been an agent of the nuclear power and oil industry and we can be sure he will support the XL Pipeline. His Race to the Top is the same school privatization program as Bush's No Child Left Behind, and all children are left behind as we have no serious school system in this country. His health plan that we are suffering through is an insurance profiteering racket that has nothing to do with providing healthcare. He has deported the most immigrants yet; amnesty is clearly not on his agenda at all and that is the only viable solution. The quality of life in the US the worst since the 1930s, as we are in a long-term Great Depression. Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party need you now to stay on the ballot, otherwise they are both gone by the end of 2014. Now is the time to get off the dime. For more information, see
