By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
Stephen Kinzer wrote a book entitled, Overthrow, where he discusses the United States (US) government’s(USG) overthrow of governments that have dared tointerfere with US business in their respective nations.
It is important to note that, if the country does not hinder US business operations there, the USG doesn’t care if that government violates its citizens’ human rights. The USG has had no hesitation tohave overthrown democratically elected governments, because theyresisted US operations in their national territories.

Thus, the USG does not represent freedom, liberty, and justice for all, like many believe. The USG represents only 1% of its citizens, and it will do whatever it takes to do so.
That is why Puerto Rico has been a US colony for the past 123 years against international law. And, that is why the USG has had an illegal blockade against Cuba for more than 60 years. Both US crimes are crimes against humanity! No wonder the world considers the USG as the biggest threat to peace!
The 99% of US citizens must decide whether this is acceptable. If it is not, we are the only ones who can save the US. We can do that by learning our real history, and organizing ourselves to force the USG to comply with domestic and international law.
Make the USG govern for 100% of us. Democracy means that we should all be able to breathe!
Why US democracy does mean hatred?
