By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United States (US) government (USG) had a golden opportunity to have done a far better job at protecting its citizens. The world, however, has been shocked at the USG’s incompetence, and or, its inhumanity towards its own citizens. Click on the following link for the details:
Why is US health care decentralized and privatized? It is, so that business could make as much profit as possible. One thing is clear, it is not designed to give US citizens the best health care possible!
The USG acted the same way to the coronavirus at home, as it did after Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria. The USGsaid that it was unable to respondfaster to our tragedy, because “it’s a big ocean”. But, the same Atlantic Ocean wasn’t a problem in 1898 for the USG to militarily invade Puerto Rico to make her its colony.
The USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945. The USG has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
Will the 99% decide to continue with“business as usual”, or will we force the 1% to return our sovereignty to us? The pandemic has opened our eyes to the fact that our government is working for Wall Street, instead of, “We the People”.
It is time to act, because those who believe in “Make America (profit) First”, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Do we want profit before “We the People”?
