Election 2016: Will You Be Voting for the US War Machine?

Joseph Lemieux | ANTIMEDIA

The United States of America. Home to millions of people and commonly mistaken as the freest nation in the world. If you’ve ever wondered what living in a Historical Empire must be like, you’re in luck! Most of us are already living in that Modern Imperialistic Empire.

This time stakes are higher, weapons are deadlier, and the information is muddier; the citizens are all the more ignorant.

Torture camps and black sites are still allowed to exist; they only help support more extremism. The drone program that voids international law continues to exist and has expanded, killing more innocents than actual enemies. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy of perpetual war.

The 2016 elections will serve for one thing: to seal Americans’ consent for perpetual war and continued empire. We bought the anti-war change for America in 2008 and 2012 and since then, America has been in more conflict. A vote in 2016 is a vote for Empire and its expansion.
