This artificial fiscal cliff, and the deals both parties have proposed to avoid it, must be exposed as a joint ruling class maneuver to push the rest of us into another decade of painful austerity.
Please reblog this new infographic on the manufactured “fiscal cliff” crisis, in which both parties are working with Wall St. to throw poor and working people off the cliff!

he masses of people rejected the Romney-Ryan blatant vision of severe austerity, racism, immigrant-bashing and subservience to Wall Street.

Dems are undeserving beneficiaries of progressive, demographic shifts

Extremely high unemployment and increasing poverty, the economic trends that have characterized the last four years, would normally doom an incumbent president. Barack Obama was reelected to a second term, however, primarily because a majority of the population feared and rejected the program of Romney, Ryan and the extreme right. President Obama was the beneficiary of a continuing progressive shift in popular attitudes in the United States and the changing composition of the U.S. electorate.

Ninety-three percent of African American voters, 75 percent of Latinos, and 74 percent of Asian Americans supported Obama. Romney won a considerable majority of white voters—more than McCain did in 2008 and similar to Bush’s rate in 2004 over Kerry—but tens of millions of white people of all social classes also voted for Obama. Fifty-five percent of women, 60 percent of young people 18-29 years of age, and 77 percent of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people voted for his reelection.

In a highly significant exit poll, 66 percent of the voters stated that they favored a “pathway to citizenship” for undocumented people. The majority of the electorate supported abortion rights. For the first time, a majority opinion throughout the country supported marriage equality for LGBT people, not just civil unions. Maine, Maryland and Washington state voters approved ballot measures legalizing same-sex marriage, and Minnesota voters rejected a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, the first times that statewide popular votes on marriage equality have won.

President Obama was the beneficiary of an enormous effort by organized labor, which mobilized workers around the country to knock on doors and make phone calls in support of the president. Union members voted for him by a more than 2-1 margin.

Both the Republicans and Democrats are capitalist ruling-class parties. The president, in this case President Obama, is the CEO of the capitalist state. This state exists to serve the interests of the capitalist class and pursue their interests globally. Both parties in office serve the interests of the biggest banks, oil companies, and the military-industrial complex. They are equally imperialist.  Both the Democratic and Republican parties support endless wars, occupations, drone attacks, economic sanctions and all of the other tactics in the imperialist arsenal against the oppressed peoples and nations of the world.

Great response to the sham elections from comrade Orlando P. in Los Angeles:
"For those of you who think the election results were a victory, this is for you.
People who voted for Obama thinking they’re voting for progress just voted for 4 more years of a foreign policy that maims and kills children and innocent people over seas.  Obama also deported and tore apart more families in his first term than in any of Bush’s terms.
Obama will never care about the rights of working people, his role is merely to be the CEO of a brutal system of oppression. Don’t get caught up in the hype of the "lesser of two evils" voting…organize and mobilize for a better system! Real change can ONLY be made through being involved in the struggle for socialism, get involved today!”

More drones, more innocent deaths.  U.S. foreign policy uses the pretext of national security to enforce the imperialist interests of the biggest banks and corporations.  That’s what is behind the endless wars and occupations. 
The Party for Socialism and Liberation says to use the $1 trillion military budget instead to provide for people’s needs here and around the world!

Peta Lindsay rips Romney and Obama's imperialist foreign policy

As President Obama and Mitt Romney held their final debate tonight, socialist PSL Presidential Candidate Peta Lindsay - who has been excluded from the Presidential Debates - joined a protest outside in Boca Raton, Florida, prior to issuing the following statement on U.S. foreign policy.

Tonight’s debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney proved that the two candidates have far more in common with each other than that which separates them on the issue of foreign policy.

Both support crippling economic sanctions against the people of Iran on the pretext that Iran may someday build a nuclear weapon, while both support the maintenance of the U.S.’s own nuclear arsenal that includes more than 5,000 nuclear weapons. In this instance, both are guilty of using the issue of nuclear weapons as a smokescreen masking the real U.S. agenda, which is to overthrow the government in Iran and replace it with a U.S. puppet or proxy regime similar to what the United States and Britain did in 1953, bringing the Shah of Iran to power.

While Mitt Romney engages in the blame game over the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, both President Obama and Romney embrace and take full responsibility for NATO’s war of aggression that created the current chaos in Libya. Both President Obama and his Republican challenger desire the establishment of a client regime in Libya, a country that possesses Africa’s largest oil reserves.

While Mitt Romney pretends that the Obama administration has been less supportive of Israel, the facts are that the president and both houses of Congress continue to provide a blank check to the Israeli regime as it continues its endless war against the Palestinian people while threatening new wars against Iran and other countries in the Middle East.

Both President Obama and Mitt Romney are committed to spending hundreds of billions more to create a so-called Missile Defense Shield in Europe and in Asia, which can be considered only as a threat directed against Russia and the People’s Republic of China. The Missile Defense Shield is nothing other than an attempt to gain military superiority and a first-strike nuclear capability against Russia and China.

President Obama and the Republican challenger have supported the aggressive expansion of South Korean missile capabilities while insisting on massive war games against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and severe economic sanctions against North Korea.

President Obama and Mitt Romney intend to keep open the 900 U.S. military bases and installations located in 130 countries around the world in order to enforce the U.S. Empire; meaning, to pursue the interests of the biggest banks and corporations in their global endeavors.

Both President Obama and Mitt Romney are committed to expanding the network of U.S. drone bases and drone attacks in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Both candidates support sharp and deep social service cutbacks and reductions in Social Security and Medicare while spending more than $600 billion on war and weapons—more than any other country in the world.

The Peta Lindsay/Yari Osorio PSL Presidential Campaign calls for the creation of a foreign policy that is based on the actual needs of the people of the United States rather than an imperialist establishment that seeks to dominate the peoples of Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe for the sake of a small handful of billionaires, bankers, banks and corporations.

We call for the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. and other foreign forces from Afghanistan, an end to all aid to Israel, the end of economic sanctions on Iran, an end to the U.S. policy of promoting civil war in Syria, an end to the 50-year-long economic blockade of socialist Cuba, a closing of all drone bases and an end to all drone attacks, and the closing of all foreign U.S. military bases.

Instead of a foreign policy based on the needs of an imperialist economic system, the people of the United States need a foreign policy that is based on mutual respect, equality and self determination.

Antiwar March on 11-year anniversary of the Afghanistan War

Agitating in Hollywood, Calif. We marched on the Walk of Fame and in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, reaching thousands of tourists and locals. The march ended in front of a recruiting station, effectively shutting it down for the remainder of the day.

I uploaded photos of myself for archiving purposes, but you can see more of the event photos from photographer Rukpong Limlamai.
