US’ “democracy” is backward

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


55% of United States (US) citizens are against the artificial colonial settler state of Israel committing genocide against the indigenous people of Palestine in their own homeland. Please click on this link for the evidence:

What kind of a so-called “champion of democracy” is the US that ignores what the majority of its citizens want? Moreover, the US’ unconditional support to Israel is the only reason why its genocidal campaign has been as successful as it has. It is important to mention that both Israel and the US are in contempt to the International Court of Justice’s order about protecting Palestinians in Gaza. That is not what real democracies do!

Wouldn’t a real US democracy be more interested in lifting 38 million Americans out of poverty? Isn’t it embarrassing for the US that the People’s Republic of China, a nation the US calls a dictatorship, has already eradicated her poverty, despite having 4 times the US’ population?

Wouldn’t a real US democracy be more interested in complying with 42 United Nations’ resolutions demanding that it immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans? The US, instead and hypocritically, claims that it supports Taiwan’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence. That, of course, is the US’ pretext to go to war with China. That is not what real democracies do!

Wouldn’t a real democracy not have had an illegal blockade against Cuba for more than 60 years?

This backward US’ “democracy” is in reality an oligarchy. The best evidence of that is the 9 out of 10 richest men in the world who are US citizens.

Oligarchs love US’ backwardness!

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
