On @podsaveamerica, I discuss the difference between moral outrage and anger, getting money out of politics, and why I want to establish a U.S. Department of Peace. Take a listen here: https://bit.ly/2EQmsqK
America can either behave responsibly toward our common good, or we can acquiesce to the economic tyranny of gun manufacturers too willing to put profits before the well-being of our citizens. We cannot do both.
My statement on today’s horrific shooting:
As President, I would do everything possible, everything possible to shore up a women’s right to choose. I do think abortion is a moral issue, but it is a private moral issue and I don’t think the government should have anything to do with a woman’s decision of what to do.
The military-industrial-complex is doing what it always does. It’s simply at it again. The question is, will we let them get away with it this time? Eisenhower warned us, we have not always listened, and it is urgent that we listen now.
Thank you @common you're an inspiration to many! "I knew that I wanted to write something that was concrete & practical, the same way I got things from Malcolm X’s Autobiography or Return to Love from Marianne Williamson. These books shook me & shaped me.”
