Here’s my latest resistbot to the President, Senators, and Congressman
Empathy is the soul of democracy. Cruelty is the soul of autocracy. The foreign policy of true democracies protects innocent civilians. The USA should not be helping Israel and Russia kill innocent civilians. The Palestinian civilian death toll has reached 30,000! It’s criminal.
Wouldn’t it be better to increase funding for the war in Ukraine? Wouldn’t it be better to reframe our help in the Middle East around an immediate cease-fire, humanitarian aid, ending the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, and finding a two-state solution?
It’s time to govern with empathy for and responsibility for human rights. Protecting and empowering strong, diverse communities of nurturing families here and abroad that care for one another is the American ideal. It’s time we stand up for American values of care.
