Populist Party of America

So, you think the Democrats and John Kerry were a good choice to oppose George W. Bush and the war policies of the neo-cons? Guess again. We've said it over and over at the Populist Party, and it's still holding true today. Although the Democrats and Republicans sound different, the policies they push all end up being the same. One simple example is war. The Democrats are pro-war and pro-imperialism, and they're proving it daily.
- Rather than working to get the troops out of illegal foreign conflicts that violate the U.S. Constitution, the Democrats are now supporting billions more dollars of funding to continue.
- Even John Kerry, who many voters thought was actually opposed to the Iraq war, is now backing Bush's billion war funding.
- John Kerry, again the neo-con stooge, is now banging the drums to expand the military with 40,000 additional troops. Sounds like a peace activist right?
- Oh, and just to add salt to our wounds, Democrats have even supported allowing the CIA to keep documents showing agents with Nazi ties secret for another 2 years. What do they all have to hide after so many years?
Hey Democrats, we're sick of it! Either take a stance for true Peace and Democracy or get out. Maybe you can officially join the Republicans and be honest about the reality our 1-party system rather than just pretending to be an opposition party. Make room for some real opposition to the imperialist American government. Remember what Dwight D. Eisenhower said:
"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."
So get out of our way.
