    Don't Count Out Gillibrand

    I don't think we've ever had an administration that didn't cozie up with human right abusing dictators, let alone one post WWII and it wasn't just Republicans disrespecting the will of the people, Bay of Pigs, Santo Domingo, Syngman Rhee, to name a few, also in the Cold War era. I like your new profile picture by the way.

    New Historical President RP

    The Libertarian Socialist Caucus issues a short official statement in response to Rep. LaHaye. "The Conservative Parties attempts to legislate morality discussed in false holiness is despicable, and a violation of the first amendment. The LSC will continue to fight for freedom of conscience. Mrs Lehaye stated that a country that doesn't care for their children disregards its future, and she's quite correct, which is why this bill must fail, lest this country become no better than the ancien regime it fought against to win its independence. This country is a land for all peoples, not just straight Christian married folk, and the Socialists will continue to fight for this ideal, in spite of reactionary hysteria."

    The so called "VALUES Act" energizes the Libertarian Socialist Caucuses, who dedicates themselves to making sure the bill fails. Rep. Pete Ochs, secretary for the house caucus calls the idea that one should be hated or shamed because of their sex life with another consenting adult, both perverted, and un-American, and calls the programme akin to indoctrination.

    Rep. Butler(PA-SL) and fellow members of the Libertarian Socialist caucus oppose both the original bill and the amendment proposal from the SLP central committee, and dedicate themselves to block any and all attempts, to increase the size of the military. They especially criticize the central committee for proposing to use the freed funding from the decommissioning of troops to enrich the death merchants of the war industries rather than putting it towards programs to help the average American. Sen. William "Big Bill" Hill from Colorado, a leader among the Libertarian Socialist Caucus, applauds the proposed bill but also asks that an oversight committee be made to ensure that this new agency does not end up in the pocket of the wealthy and powerful drug and food industries.

    Retired US Army Major General (1940-1967) turned US House Representative (first elected in 1968 SLP from Pennsylvania) Darlington S. Butler(b.1921) outlines a plan to, as he put it "Smash the racket of war" in an article in the socialist newspaper Common Sense: I spent 32 years and 4 months of my life in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. Trust me when I say, that war is indeed a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. Good people let us smash this racket! I present you a four step programme to take the profit out of war, and bring power to the people, and away from the war profiteers! 1. Before war can be declared, a limited plebiscite must occur. Eligible to vote would be people of draft age, and those who risk death on the frontline 2. Before a national draft can be implemented, the presidents, executives, directors, and managers involved in war industries, as well as all, bankers, generals, admirals, officers and all politicians are be conscripted to get $30 a month, the same wage as the average draftee. 3. The United States Navy is to be restricted to operating within 200 miles of the shoreline. 4. The United States Army is to be restricted to operating only within the territorial limits of the United States. We also can't forget the men whose youth we've already thrown away, and I advocate a national pension for all veterans, as well as government funding of all mental and physical care needed by the veterans or their families. I encourage the Socialist Labor Party, and the Congress in general, to act on these proposals. We must come to our senses and smash the power that the war profiteers have over our political system!

    Don't fall for Tulsi Gabbard

    Well it's very possible that the attack never even happened and was staged by NATO.

    Don't fall for Tulsi Gabbard

    Well who's to say what is and isn't a reliable news network, especially when they're almost all owned by six different companies, who'd have it in their interests to paint Assad as someone the US needs to fight. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/world/u-s-has-no-evidence-of-syrian-use-of-sarin-gas-mattis-says https://www.globalresearch.ca/syria-un-mission-report-confirms-that-opposition-rebels-used-chemical-weapons-against-civilians-and-government-forces/5363139 https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2018/04/show-me-the-evidence-did-assad-really-carry-out-th.html https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/04/russia-steps-rhetoric-douma-chemical-attack-180413153752567.html

    Don't fall for Tulsi Gabbard

    That was a joke, though I've heard conflicting reports on the veracity of whether or not he actually did launch those gas attacks, or if it was the rebels. They were saying the same thing before Iraq, that Saddam had gassed his own people, and that he had WMDs. How do we know this isn't another fabrication? Can we really trust America's news media, whose owners have a vested interest in seeing Americas perpetual war contine, be honest about an invadable foreign power? Are you saying that we should invade Syria this time, because this time we must be right?

    Don't fall for Tulsi Gabbard

    But both of these things are good tho/s Seriously though, were you telling opponents of the illegal, and more importantly, immoral invasion of Iraq that they must surely support Saddam if they dare oppose The American Empire? I'll admit I'm not big on Tulsi, I'm not a fan of the Democratic party period. So were Obama and Hillary until they realized that they could get more votes if they didn't advocate for denying people their rights.

    2020 Scenario Update (12/21)

    Oh really? I must have have missed this, what exactly have the GOP controlled congress and court system stopped Trump from doing? What exact tendencies that you feared, have been checked?

    Merkley's Blueprint to Restore American Democracy

    I don't know how you can "restore" something that never existed in the first place, but it's better than nothing.

    If the Democratic Primaries Began Today....

    Sanders I guess, but he's probably the furthest right I could go. I don't have a lot of faith in Worker liberation through bourgeois "democracy", though so there's that. Also Warren isn't some far-left "looney", she is not anti-capitalist, nor is she left-wing. Yeah Sawant's good. There's also Lee Carter (D-VA), and Judge Franklin Bynum(D-TX), to name a few, but most socialist (correctly) view the current so-called democracy of the United States with suspicion, viewing it, to quote V.I. Lenin, as "Democracy for an insignificant minority, democracy for the rich - that is the democracy of capitalist society."- Vladimir I Lenin, 'The State and Revolution' chapter five, The Economic Basis Of The Withering Away Of The State.

    Elizabeth Warren launches exploratory committee

    I don't like Warren, but this is not some career ending shit, hell if you're some "war hero", who got captured after bombing a light bulb factory, and that barely knew how to actually fly a plane, but didn't get kicked out of the navy because your dad was an admiral, you can call your second wife, who you married after leaving your first wife on her sick bed, a cunt after she tells you your hairs getting thin, and still be venerated as an american hero because you had one decent vote.

    If the Democratic Primaries Began Today....

    I'd reluctantly vote for Warren even though she's to the right of me, but a SocDem is better that a centrist neo-liberal, or even worse a crypto-fascist, though I'm doubtful she'd be able to beat Trump.
