Tulsi Gabbard, the U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district and one of the contenders for the Democratic nomination for President, has condemned both neoconservatism and neoliberalism as two sides of the same coin in a scathing new campaign video.
Speaking from an anti-war platform, Gabbard condemned the warmongering of the U.S. political and media elite in light of events in Iran and Venezuela.
“The neocons, neolibs, and mainstream media are all singing from the same song sheet, saying, “We Want War, We Need More War.” Trump never gets media support unless he’s threatening war or carrying out a military action.”Tulsi Gabbard
Promising an end to the U.S. war machine, Gabbard promised to divert funding from America’s military into the care of the American people.
“Today it is Venezuela. Tomorrow, Iran? Who knows who will be next. It is no wonder North Korea won’t give up their nuclear weapons. As commander-in-chief, I will end these counterproductive, wasteful regime change wars. And work to end the New Cold War and nuclear arms race and use our precious resources to care for the needs of the American people: Quality healthcare, protecting our environment, improving education, rebuilding our infrastructure. I humbly ask for your support.”Tulsi Gabbard

Profit Over People: Neoliberalism and the Global Order
By Noam Chomsky
Why is the Atlantic slowly filling with crude petroleum, threatening a millions-of-years-old ecological balance? Why did traders at prominent banks take high-risk gambles with the money entrusted to them by hundreds of thousands of clients around the world, expanding and leveraging their investments to the point that failure led to a global financial crisis that left millions of people jobless and hundreds of cities economically devastated? Why would the world’s most powerful military spend 10 years fighting an enemy that presents no direct threat to secure resources for corporations?
The culprit in all cases is neoliberal ideology – the belief in the supremacy of “free” markets to drive and govern human affairs. And in the years since the initial publication of Noam Chomsky’s Profit Over People: Neoliberalism & Global Order, the bitter vines of neoliberalism have only twisted themselves further into the world economy, obliterating the public’s voice in public affairs and substituting the bottom line in place of people’s basic obligation to care for one another as ends in themselves.
