    I can't think of anything to put here because I'm totally baffled.

    Like Zelenskyy in Ukraine got a huge majority by running as the peace
    candidate and we know how that worked out.

    After a politician is elected they can do whatever they want.

    I know there will be people who will still claim, having heard the lying
    speech (which one?) by Biden, but Zelenskyy was president when
    the bombardment of Donetsk became heavy on Feb 19 2022, when
    Russia stated it would intervene, when Russia did move forces in on
    Feb 24 2022.

    And yes, Zelenskyy was president for a long time before that during the
    much lighter bombardments that went on before the weapons voted
    for by the Democrat Congress reached the front lines.

    But how can we break out of the grip the weapons makers
    have on Congress and usually also on our President?

    The only candidate escalating war with Russia is Biden, and the neocons giving him orders.

    So I pick the 'anyone but Biden and the neocons' ticket.

    I changed from 'only one war' because whatever war we start, years
    later we admit it was a mistake, every time.
