Back in 2012 journalist Michael Arria commented on Elizabeth Warren as follows:
“How can anyone truly work on reforming the economic system in our country without addressing the existence of a permanent-war economy? How can anyone tackle the issue of tax breaks without taking a look at the House Armed Services Committee and the Defense Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee defense bills?”
I am in complete agreement over the question he poses above re: Elizabeth Warren who recently voted in favor of a massive increase in the u.s. war budget via h.r. 2810.
60% of Democrats voted for this bill, which is an increase of 18% for defense spending.
How is it possible to separate the military industrial complex from the capitalist monster of the u.s. which includes the big banks Warren, “blasts” against?
The D party is an integral component of the u.s. oligarchy. IMO: The cognitive dissonance generated by progressives maintaining their adoration of Elizabeth Warren is puzzling at best, counterproductive at worst.
(unrealistic/surrealistic fantasy alert): if she were to reject the democratic party and her support of the u.s. war machine, make amends for playing a role in the rigging of the election in favor of HRC then we could have a healthier conversation.
