Another reason to suspect the elections in the UK and US are totally fraudulent.
The war mongers and profit machines don't want to trust important decisions to popular elections. In no way are these groups invested in democracy of any kind. The citizens might actually try to avoid war , conflict, belligerent militarism.
No. That simply won't do.
“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Thomas Jefferson
“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” John Adams
“But government in which the majority rule in all cases can not be based on justice, even as far as men understand it.” Henry David Thoreau

Nuclear weapons are an unacceptable option in any and all situations. I despise nukes and would like to see them banned internationally. If I were President I would disarm all of our nuclear weapons and hope that we can set an example for the rest of the world. I would never launch them even if I had them at my disposal.
Clearly I feel very strongly about the horror of nuclear war.
