Not One More!

Not One More! is dedicated to peace, justice, and human rights for all.

If we truly seek to have a peaceful and just society, an important first step is to start voting for those candidates who actually support peace and justice for all. It is time to end the illegal and devastating wars and the continued destruction of our environment. Both mainstream parties (democrat and republican) support the continuation of the status quo by protecting the corporate elite at the expense of the general public (meaning more wars, more destruction of the environment; and less peace and justice for the people). The idea of voting for the lesser of two evils has never resulted in advancing peace and justice for all.

Other issues to address include: having a government that acts in a legal and transparent manner (eliminate secret meetings and backdoor deals); implementing healthcare for all (Obamacare is not enough); ending corporate bailouts with our tax dollars; making protection of our environment a priority; elimination or at least labeling GMOs (Genetically Modified Foods), and provide safe food, air, water, and shelter to all people.

These illegal wars also created in part the current 'terrorists'. Clearly the governments and mainstream media have a different agenda which is to protect the current system which profits by these unjust acts that kill and maim innocent civilians. These issues must be addressed on a national and global level.

If we had provided real humanitarian aid to the Middle East in the amount that was was spent on the war, there would not be all these 'terrorists'.

It has to start someplace, and it has to start now. Let it start with you. Commit to only vote for those candidates that support peace, justice, and human rights for all.

A presidential candidate to consider for 2016 is Jill Green of the Green Party. You may not hear about the Green Party and their positions in the mainstream media, but you should check them out. A major concern with Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race (an independent Senator from Vermont and self-described democratic socialist) is that he usually votes for bills that supporting current military spending levels. Isn't that what is allowing these wars to continue. Is supporting bloated military budgets conterproductive to stopping an illegal war? His positions on many other issues are to be commended, but his pro-defense budget stance is a concern that should be further looked into.

Get involved!

We see a continuation of the status quo:

  • the predatory actions of our corporate elite
  • the unwillingness and corruption of our elected politicians as they fail to protect the public trust
  • destruction of the environment
  • and the failure of mainstream media to report on any substantial issue that would shed light on these injustices

It is time to recognize that many of our elected officials, the mainstream media, and the universities are working against 'We The People.' Let's stop giving our consent to these entities that continue to destroy society. While it was nice to see the Occupy Movement come to Main Street, the issues have not been resolved.

The 2016 Presidential election will again offer democratic and republican candidates who have a history of supporting the interests of the corporate elite. This comes at the expense of the general public, third world countries, the environment, and human rights for all. Voting for either candidate only serves to give our consent to the corporate elite.

Once again, mainstream media reports make it seem that there is a difference between the democratic and the republican parties. Nothing could be further from the truth. While there are minor differences, both parties work together to support a war based economy, continue to give corporate bailouts, and promote policies that are destroying the environment for financial profit. They system is working exactly like they want it to. They fail to end corporate corruption because they benefit from it.

Of course, mainstream media always seems to find some excuse not to report the real news in a timely and accurate manner as they continue to act as weapons of mass distraction.

The wars and Wall Street handouts continue unchallenged, while real issues, like joblessness, healthcare, and environmental concerns are ignored or marginalized. As a result, real solutions are never discussed. Unfortunately, the public would is more comfortable hearing the lies than seeking the truth.

An old indian saying: It is hard to wake up a man who is pretending to be asleep.

We need each voter's voice to speak up. Voting for the lesser two evils still leaves us with evil and an unjust choice. We need to identify our priorities, and find a candidate who will represent us. The problem is the 535 elected officials (senators and representatives) who continually fail to act in the interests of 'we the people.'

Not One More! supports the idea of voting for third party candidates. Can we afford to keep voting for the two corporate parties (republicans or the democrats) while they continue to fund the wars and supporting corporate interests over the public good?

While George Bush Jr is old news, unfortunately many of his policies aren't. The current administration (Mr. Obama) is carrying out many of the same policies. It was wrong when George Bush did it, and it is wrong when Obama does it.

The Tea party is another corporate shill that pretends to be for the people while being funded by the Koch brothers and tobacco interests (corporate billionaires).

And please remember, there was never any connection between September 11, 2001 and Saddam. Not one of the hijackers were Iraqi.

"I’ve learned from past experience that if you want to attain a goal you’ve got to be willing to lose and lose and lose, until either you prevail or those who come after you prevail. But a lot of people don’t like to lose, or they can’t endure losing. Well, I can do both—I can endure winning and I can endure losing. Enduring winning means that you don’t get satisfied with what you’ve accomplished, you keep going; you don’t become a jet-setter. And enduring losing means that you lay the basis for another push, for another struggle, for more and more people supporting reform." Ralph Nader Read more


Not One More!

Not one more war.

Not one more needless death.

Not one more injustice.

Not one more vote for a presidential candidate who is the lesser of two evils.

Not one more dollar wasted on protecting corporate profits at the expense of the American people.

Not one more rigged election.

Not one more politician who is more concerned about getting corporate payoffs and re-election than carrying out the job of being a representative of the people.

By voting for the lesser of two evils, we are giving our consent to the dysfunctional system where we are voting for a candidate who doesn't represent the public's interests, and in fact works against the public safety and liberties.


“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

— John F. Kennedy

Mission Accomplished? [May 1, 2011]

Bin Laden is not the reason we are in the Middle East wars, and his death/execution won't bring about the end of the wars.

Early news reports of his death say he resisted, but maybe that is a normal reaction to getting shot in the head. It turns out Bin Laden was unarmed. Oh well. And the reports that he used his wife to shield him were also bogus. Who knows what else is bogus?

The problem is that our news media act as glorified secretaries, taking each government (or corporate) press release and reprinting it as news regardless of the truth.

Remember how Saddam was falsely held responsible for September 11th by Bush and Cheney, the claim parroted by the media in the buildup to that war? That false belief became ‘fact’ for many people, long after Bush and Cheney were forced to retract their earlier false statements.

 Why did they lie? Because lies work. You can create the false narrative, put down anybody who questions it as being unpatriotic, and the lie becomes the new reality, at least for the unquestioning general public. Delay the truth for as long as you can, and more people will believe the manufactured myth.  Mission Accomplished.

You cannot have a corrupted government without having a corrupted news media. You cannot have peace without justice, and you cannot have justice if it is based on lies.

NOT ONE MORE! This web site was started in 2006 with the intent to get Presidential candidates, especially in the Democratic Party, to support a policy based on peace and justice by publicly committing to the Pledge for Peace. We all saw what Bush and company were doing to the United States, Iraq, and the rest of the world. We were also not so naive to think that this was a 'republican' problem

We continue to see the Democratic Party leadership let down the progressive movement with the continuation of the war, not considering universal health care (single payer or medicare for all), corporate bailouts, increasing the bloated military budgets, etc.

2008 had a democrat as President and democrat majorities in both houses, and yet they failed to implement 'progressive' policies like ending the war and protecting the environment from corporate predatory actions. The reality is clear, it isn't that the democratic party 'can't' fix the problems, it's that they "won't" fix the problems. Their unequivocal support for the corporate elite is clearly evident, even if it meant acting contrary to the public good and the constitution.

If you want change, you have to make a change. When you vote for the lesser of two evils, don't be surprised when it is all said and done that you still have evil. After all, when you are on a path, eventually you get to its destination.

Vote third party. Time to stop giving our consent to the status quo and the two corporate parties (republican and democratic) which provides primarily for the monied elite at the expense of the general public.


What is the Next Step?

Vote for those candidates that support your values. Don't compromise basic principles of peace, justice, and human rights. It is not about winning. It is about voting for those candidates that reflect your values.

Demand that your elected representatives act in a manner that protects and promotes peace and justice. Secondly, make those responsible accountable for their actions. It is clear that the president lied to the American people and violated U.S. and International law. Impeachment would be an appropriate first step.

Only when there are sufficient voices to call for change, will change be made. It may be your voice that causes the change, or it may need 1,000,000 other voices. But without your voice it will be one less voice away from what is needed for change. Please use your voice and vote for a candidate who represents peace, justice, and liberty for all.


Pledge For Peace

This challenge is to any potential candidate who wants to get the support of the 'peace and justice' voters. This especially applies to the democratic candidates.

War is not ther answer.What:  If you support the peace process and want to get the peace and justice vote, make a Pledge for Peace statement that: 

  • The current process of war is wrong, illegal, and a violation of basic human rights.

  • The  stated reasons for the war are based on lies, deceit and intentional misinformation.

  • Stop any and all abuse and torture of prisoners and close Guantanamo Bay.

Coffins of US SoldiersWhen:  We ask that you make this Pledge for Peace as soon as possible, as each day we wait is another day of people dying needlessly. In fact, some people will not support any candidate that hasn't already made the determination that this War is a mistake and contrary to the basic principles of liberty, peace, justice, and truth.

peace signsIf you cannot support the peace process in this timely manner, then the "peace and justice" movement cannot consider supporting you.  Every day you wait is a betrayal to peace and justice, and a horrible tragedy to those who will die, get maimed, or traumatized by the reality of war. Now is the time to stand up against the U.S. occupation.

Why:  There is enough evidence at the present time for a rational person to make a determination beyond a reasonable doubt that these wars are based on lies, and are illegal under both U.S. and International laws. To support the wars is contrary to basic democratic principles of freedom and liberty.

No blood for oil.The appropriate peace and justice candidate would already be outraged at the lies and manipulations of the current and previous administrations. They would be formulating an exit strategy that would include turning interim US occupation authority over to a truly international peace-keeping authority. They would not support permanent US military bases in Iraq or bombing in Pakistan, Afghanistan, or Iran.

Nor would they believe that to withdraw from this illegal war is a dishonor to the soldiers who have already died. It is hard to believe that those soldiers who have already made the ultimate sacrifice would want another of their brothers and sisters to die in vain for a lie.

The truly peace and justice candidate would be speaking out now, and not two years from now. Now is the time to publicly speak out and be counted. We are looking for leaders, not followers. We are looking for solutions, not political posturing. We are looking for a candidates who can publicly state that this war, based on lies and misrepresentations, is a mistake.

We have waited long enough.

Not one more!

Pledge For Peace Letter

Elected Official's Pledge:

I publicly declare that:

- The wars are being carried out in violation of U.S. law and International law. The war is contrary to the basic principles of a democratic and just society, and fails to protect basic human rights.

- The reasons cited for going to war are based on lies, deceit, and fabrications.

- In compliance with the rules under the Geneva Convention, I further declare to immediately stop any and all  torture and abuse at Guantanamo Bay, and any other facility that is under the U.S. control or its direction. I will end the current 'enemy combatants' policy, and treat them in accordance and protections provided under international law and the Geneva Convention.

- I pledge to make non-violence the primary mechanism for conflict resolution.

This is suggested wording. Each person has to evaluate their own beliefs and values, and publicly declare what they believe in and what they are willing to stand for.


Community Member's Pledge:

As a community member of a caring society that supports peaceful efforts, human rights, and justice for all, I declare that I will only vote for, and support, any candidate who is able to publicly declare that:

- The reasons for the war are based on lies and deceit.

- The war is wrong because it violates U.S. and International laws, and the basic principles of a democratic and just society. We must protect basic human rights for all.

- They will act in accordance with the rules under the Geneva Convention, and immediately stop any and all torture and abuse at Guantanamo Bay, and any other facility that is under the U.S. control or its direction. The U.S. should not be conducting or condoning torture.

- They agree to making non-violence a platform of their candidacy.


Now is the time to oppose this unjust war, and I cannot in good conscience allow this travesty continue, or support any candidate who has chosen to let it continue.

Note: This pledge can apply to any candidate running for any elected office.

This is suggested wording. Each person has to evaluate their own beliefs and values, and publicly declare what they believe in and what they are willing to stand for.
