Kudos to many great comments here.
Good to see yet another article by C/Dreams in support of much needed change. However, I have one constructive criticism.. Failure to mention Jill Stein and the Green Party. Now here comes the constructive part:
The Green Party's Tax Reform . Humane Budget . Smart Strategies, are sensible policies that are doable -- will cut enormous waste (trillions $) of tax payers monies. So that money for example, can be invested in 100% clean, sustainable energy, and provide millions of well paid jobs.
Includes financial (budget) reforms that regulates big banks, and assures big corporations (and wealthy individuals) pay their fair share of taxes. Including sensible cuts by up to 50% regarding the M.I.C (military) whilst maintaining strong defense and humane budget "For The People." Source (note: the article is long - lots of details - long read).
Now here's a reality - example, the Democrats had no issues sparing a trillion dollars on building new nuclear weapons, now experts fear will start a new arms race with Russia.. I'm sure the Neocons must be thrilled about that. All whilst millions of Americans live in hardship, many are working poor. Many Americans living in filth (pollution) serious environmental issues that affects their health. And it seems like there's no end to this --- further threats of pollution, peaceful protests (activist) continue to be ignored. Here's Just One Example - Dakota Pipeline.
All whilst Obama is full steam ahead in his quest for more fossil fuel extraction. - Source: TIPP and Fossil Fuels.
The EU is backing down (TIPP), what about the U.S.? The TPP may have been stalled but it is still on the table. Such injudicious deals give big corporations way too much power (to abuse of human rights and the environment).
For those who need to know more about Obama regarding Fracking - Watch This Video (in his own words)
During Obama's reign there's been massive oil spills and gas leaks. Resulting in unprecedented catastrophes to the environment. Example: Yet Another Massive Gas Leak in Texas Due To Fracking. There's also been massive gas leak in California. These leaks being so massive and a threat to life that thousands of people had to be evacuated.
Such atrocious disrespect for the environment and abuse of life (human rights) is what happens when people continue to be duped in to supporting either major party. Both the Democrats and Republicans are poisoned by oligarchy dominance. Dirty money in politics (duplicity) unjust legalized bribes that favor the wealthy few (1%), and to hell with the rest of Americans.
The only solution is to stop being duped into voting for either major party, and accept the cold hard reality that the wealthy few also have a stronghold on major media groups that spread propaganda and gerrymandering, to assure the two major party duopoly continues to reign it's poison.
After centuries of atrocious and insane oligarchy dominance --- it's about time the electorate wise up. Don't allow this horrible reality of oligarchy dominance to continue, end decades of atrocious environmental abuse, and abuse of human rights.
The only solution: Vote for Jill Stein 2016
I am deeply concerned about current environment issues and future generations --- I think this article by C/Dreams: The Anthropocene should be taken very seriously.
