conquest, its use of military aggression to secure foreign natural
resources and the means to bring them to market, and its violence-ridden
military occupation of regions to which it has no legal claim whatsoever.
This in itself is sufficient reason to vote for him.
He also is a firm supporter of a single payer national health plan, a
plan recently subverted by Obama’s Democratic administration.
There are numerous other reasons to cast a vote in his favor. Visit his

political/economic beliefs rather than engage in the bribery-riddled,
corporate-funded travesties that characterize the American electoral
