In ballot initiatives across the country people just voted for raising the minimum wage, banning fracking, funding schools, taxing millionaires and billionaires, legalizing marijuana, reducing prison sentences, providing paid sick leave, and imposing background checks on gun purchases.
The White House and Republicans are talking up the NAFTA-on-steroids Trans-Pacific Partnership, an escalated war in Iraq and Syria, and the elimination of internet neutrality. The new Congress will be pushing for the tar sands pipeline that Obama has for years refused to stop. Obama's surveillance state will have a willing partner, as will his agenda of burying information on the crimes of his predecessor.
We reject this agenda of war, environmental destruction, and media monopolies.
We favor a higher minimum wage, a smaller military, smaller prisons, more investment in schools, and the progressive initiatives that passed on November 4th.
We will be pressuring all elected officials to move in this wiser and more popular direction.
