The United States (US) of America is the opposite of what she portrays herself to be. She says that she is a nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all. 244 years of US history does not support that claim!
If that were true, why is the US the epicenter of the coronavirus? If that were true, why are a third of US citizens without any health insurance? If that were true, why did Black US citizens have to engage in a slave revolt in 1960 to force their government to respect their civil rights? And if that were true, why do Blacks and Whites have are engage today in “Black Lives Matter” protests?

The US government (USG) has always represented only 1% of its citizens. What do the 99% have to say? Do we want to continue for another 244 years with business as usual?
How many US citizens are aware that the world considers the USG as the biggest threat to world peace? Isn’t it ironic that the United Nations (UN) that seeks peace is located in the biggest threat to world peace! Isn’t it ironic that the biggest threat to world peace is always sanctioning other nations for violating the rule of law? Here is a great example of the USG violating the rule of law. https://www.indepthnews.net/index.php/opinion/3227-u-s-is-greatest-threat-to-world-peace
The USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony in 1898. The USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945. The USG has ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. How many times have you heard this reported in the US media? You never have, because the educational system and the media keep the truth hidden to perpetuate operating the USG for the 1%. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
The 99% of US citizens matter! But to get our government to represent us, we will need to engage in resistance today, resistance tomorrow and resistance forever! http://www.todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
The 1% certainly does!
