Free will implies responsibility.  War is a characteristic of neither free will or responsibility.

C-Span hosted a call-in discussion about the spending bill that was passed yesterday.  

C-Span–7:16AM–caller–paraphrase— People don’t understand that much of funding to Ukraine is in military equipment that is paying ourselves because the arms dealers are located in the USA.

Some people do understand this concept, but don’t identify with corporate-war profiteering..  Doesn’t this, by the way, sound a bit like money laundering?  

Anyhoo….how’s about using said taxpayer money, spent in the USA for manufacturing purposes, to purchase…..let’s say automobiles, generators, food, washing machines, health care, and many more utilitarian products……to ship off to local US communities.  

Indoctrination seems implicated in a US public that sheepishly accepts socialism for the Military-Industrial Complex including the Pentagon, but so many people shrink from socialism for human beings.     —

We Are Using Ukraine To Do WHAT?!

Former Rep. Zach Wamp on Electoral Count Act Reform and January 6th Committee Report

Former Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN) talked about the Electoral Count Act reform legislation and the January 6th Select Committee’s final report.

–end of c-span info–

Zach Wamp seemed to place the US Constitution over the Democratic/Republican duopoly.  Political Parties weren’t intended to replace We The People in our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic. We need to hear from more people with his views, in place of Party sycophants.

Reports say that within the spending bill is a law that clarifies the role of the Vice-President in the transfer of governance after an election as being ceremonial without the ability for the Vice-President to wage a coupe.  Everyone knew that.  Surgical monitoring of actions of politicians seems to mirror monitoring of a kindergarten class.  Laws aren’t needed where integrity is the norm.  

To get back to the US funding of Ukraine, a caller brought up the unpopularity of forever wars of the USA (my phrasing), and the caller said poor people have no business fighting rich men’s wars.  All wars are so fought, while the rich get richer during wartime, local community members suffer and die.  War is nothing if not simple.

The plight of the Ukrainian public is revolting, in which average people find themselves in the predictable position as fodder for the war of rich men.

****As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-

 This is a reminder of how much we don’t know.  This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought.  We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate.  Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United.  But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy.  Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–          —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate.  Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary.  This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People.  Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.       —

Ross Perot in 1992 on NAFTA and the “Giant Sucking Sound”

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly.  It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.———————–We can do better———-

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  

Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”
If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
