My America

Stop U.S. Intervention in Nicaragua's November Elections!

Nicanet | While the US government talks of “election monitoring” there are many who believe that we in the US and in Nicaragua should be monitoring the US government’s involvement in the up-coming Nicaraguan elections. Furthermore, we demand that the US government stop interfering in ways that our government and citizens would find completely unacceptable if done to us.

US Senate declares English the “national language”: a boost to chauvinism and racism

Statement of the Socialist Equality Party | The Socialist Equality Party unequivocally condemns the vote by the Senate on Thursday to make English the “national language” of the United States. The measure, added to the Senate immigration “reform” bill, is the but latest in a series of reactionary, ignorant and short-sighted moves aimed at shoring up the right-wing base of the Bush administration and the Republican Party, with the most far-reaching and anti-democratic implications.
The proposal is a sop to right-wing and fascistic elements who are working to whip up intolerance and hatred against immigrants in general, and Hispanic Americans in particular. It underscores the deeply undemocratic and unconstitutional essence of all of the measures being enacted in the name of “securing the border.”
The United States has existed for more than 200 years without any such official elevation of English by the federal government. No such measure was written into the US Constitution by the founders. A proposal by John Adams in 1780 to establish an official academy devoted to English was rejected at the time as undemocratic. more...  1 Comments

Senate hearing on CIA nominee: Democrats rubberstamp Bush police-state spying

Patrick Martin | The Senate hearing Thursday on the nomination of General Michael Hayden to head the Central Intelligence Agency demonstrates the bipartisan congressional support for the Bush administration’s assault on the democratic rights of the American people.

While there were scattered criticisms of the methods of the Bush administration, particularly its failure to consult with Congress, every senator on the Intelligence Committee accepted the premise that the United States is engaged in a “war on terror” and that the Bush administration’s escalation of domestic surveillance and wiretapping is a product of that war.

There was no challenge to the Orwellian label, “terrorist surveillance program,” which the Bush administration has chosen to apply to a program which actually involves the surveillance of the telephone calls and Internet messaging of nearly the entire American population—an estimated 225 million people. It would be far more accurate to describe the electronic monitoring and data-mining by the National Security Agency (NSA) as the “universal surveillance program”—or as the Pentagon once labeled its own version of the program, “Total Information Awareness.” more...  0 Comments

Hawkins Opposes Ensign Amendment on Immigration Bill

Howie Hawkins | I urge the Senate to oppose the amendment by Senator John Ensign to the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006. The Ensign Amendment would prevent lawfully present immigrant workers from claiming Social Security based on earnings credited before they were authorized to work in the United States. This is fundamentally unfair.

Help us to win our campaign against an arms company

SmashEDO Campaign - smashedo@hotmail.com | Our campaign against our local arms dealers in the UK is nearing possible victory. The company is owned by a US parent firm. The shareholders are getting edgy about the security of their investments and a demo at their New York HQ would really help us to convince them to drop their UK branch.

Failure of the Affluent State

nano | When the State fails and criminals steal the reigns of power corruption filters through State institutions. The agencies and the regulatory ‘authorities’ usually ‘toe the line’ and therefore cannot be trusted to serve the interests of the people. When the government becomes a den of thieves, liars and murderers it is the people who must restore sanity and legitimate government. more...  2 Comments
