and it always will be.
Choose Peace. Choose to live with Peace.
Choose to interact peacefully with everyone -
especially those whose instinct is not to be peaceful.

to China. If American workers don't have good jobs and pay, then
there is nobody to buy the products they want to sell.
I find, and so does the world press and leaders, that

States on the world stage. I see Bernie and Berniecrats as the
positive future leadership of the Democratic Party, just as a new
negative philosophy took
