Take Back Your Government
America is controlled by two political parties that gives us the illusion of choice. The reality is both Democrats and Republicans serve the same master--big business. This reality is reflected in the fact that while Wall St. is booming, with accompanying skyrocketing CEO pay, the rest of us are having trouble making ends meet. And despite Congress having a job approval rating of 15 percent almost all it's members are re-elected.
If we don't want to become a fascist country we must remove Donald Trump from the White House. He's already committed enough crimes (and will commit many others) that he can be impeached now.
He's consolidated a police state that was ushered in by his predecessor, a war criminal. Americans are being spied upon without constitutional bases. And those who expose governmental abuse are thrown in jail, harassed, or forced to flee the country. We are told that we have to give up freedoms to be safe. But despite hundreds of Billions spent fighting the war on terror we are less safe today than before 9/11.
Law enforcement is terrorizing our citizens quite often for no other reason than the color of their skin.
The People's platform
To build a movement we need a people's platform. And that document will be written by the people.
The last presidential election involved two of the most corrupt and sinister politicians ever to run for the office. One of them represented a family with decades of political corruption. The other candidate spent decades of corrupt business practices and behavior. This is all the two-party system has to offer: corruption, lies, oppression, and failure.
We Need an alternative to the Corporate Media
The mainstream press/media, which is owned by a small number of corporate conglomerates, are responsible for Trumpism. They are failing to tell us the truth about what the government is doing. They instead give us propaganda on behalf of the ruling 1 percent. That is why we need an alternative people's press. We need the truth. And only the 99 percent can gives us that truth.
We are Winning
The 99 percent movement is winning despite the lack of political power. Whether it's TPP, the KXL pipeline, DAPL, or The Fight for $15, we are beating the corporate power structure. We have strength in numbers and commitment. We can end plutocratic rule by growing the movement. Bernie Sanders showed that We The People are strong enough to recapture our democratic republic.
We Need a Third Party
We need an alternative to the corrupt and repressive two-party system. And the only real way to do that is through a viable third party movement that will defeat Democrats and Republicans. Only then can we establish government of and by the people.
It wasn't the Russians
Julian Assange wants to make it perfectly clear: Wikileaks revelations did not come from the Russians.

- Even if it were the Russians, The U.S. tried to change other countries’ governments 72 times during the Cold War.
